Hi Everyone! It’s been a while since my last post - let’s just say I’ve been out and about, shopping my brains out and keeping my eyes open for more incredible plus size fashions to share with you. And one thing I’ve noticed is that it’s becoming easier and easier to find great fashions in plus sizes. I’ve written about it before - it used to be the highlight of my month to find a pretty plus size dress. Everything else was either too small, made from a clown costume, or cut like a trash bag.
I’m here to tell you that we’ve come a long way.
Take a peek at what I’m talking about:
Finding something like this (outside of a custom tailor, of course) 5 years ago was unthinkable. I mean look at it! It’s got a clean empire waistline, wide straps, a nice little overlap on the neckline edge treatment, and the detail on the lower hem is just to die for. Put this on for a summer garden party or a night out with your man and you’ll be in seventh heaven.
Next up we’ve got something a little busier, a little more complicated, but magnificent none-the-less.This is another great example of an empire waist, but this time the neckline doesn’t swoop quite as low, and of course we have sleeves with a great little flair at the end. The neck is held together by some cute ties, which is something I like with a higher line. Just like the last one, you could wear this anywhere. put on some flats to keep it casual, or a hot little pair of heels or wedges to dress it up and a little more attention. I love brown, and I love this pattern. This one’s a real winner for sure.
The last one for this post has a square neckline and wide straps. Notice that it does have very small sleeves, but that the sleeve line cuts slightly in the middle to give it a sleeveless look without the sleeveless feel! Great little feature to look for when you’re out and about shopping. The pattern on the top is simple, yet significant in that it draws the eyes up the dress and naturally to your chest, shoulders, and face. It’s a real winner on a lot of fronts in my book..!
