Amy Childs has revealed she was "really self conscious" about a recent weight gain, until it inspired her to try out new styles

Amy always looks stylish in everything from glam dresses to stylish jumpsuits, and has been more experimental than ever with her outfits recently.

Now the former TOWIE star has revealed there's a reason behind her recent wardrobe transformation.

After a second boob job, Amy accidentally knocked her left implant, and it began to fill with fluid. Until it healed, Amy had to stop exercising.

Having always favoured tight fitting body-con numbers, the former TOWIE star admitted to the MailOnline that she felt "really self conscious" about her weight gain, as her usual tight styles looked different on.

But, as Amy relaxed her fitness regime, she found new inspiration for her latest clothing collection. "Having that little extra weight really made me realise that not everyone wants to just wear a body-con dress, even if they look great in it." she said.

Amy started trying out different styles to suit her figure, and has gained confidence, saying: "I'm not afraid to wear bolder colours and different fits now."

The Celebrity Big Brother star has learnt the key to looking and feeling fab: "It's all about clever dressing and embracing your shape not trying to change it."

And her latest collection is full of fun colours and shapes perfect for every shape, Amy shared some of her new designs, calling them "Perfect for the summer". And we agree, the bright yellow and peplum 'Debbie' top is ideal for sunnier days!
