Fashion Trends – Plus Sizes

Remember the days when all you could buy in plus sizes ended up making you look like a granny?  Well those days are gone, I have been following and researching the different online stores for the fuller figured women.

I’ve come across some wonderful sites that really have listened to us plus size buyers.  I used to go into a shop and get a size 26 off the rack; I would put the item on and find that the top was too tight around my hips, and way too big around my chest.  It was almost impossible to buy anything that fit properly.

I found some great stores that ask you to measure yourself chest, waist, hips and length of your leg.  This has made things easier for us consumers because we know what we are getting in the form of measurements.  Also making things easier is the designers of the plus size fashion.  They have taken real plus size women with all different shapes and sizes and have managed to make tops that fit right at the top and fit right at the hip area.

This is fantastic as far as I am concerned because the plus size fashion of today has really sparked that twinkle in our eyes again.  We can now be bold, fashionable, classy, and sexy and not look like a grandmother in her Sunday best clothing.

Take a look at some of my links to stores and you will see what I mean.  Lovely blouses, skirts, dresses, work wear, bathing suits and accessories like belts, yes I said belts.  They have actually made a belt to fit the plus size woman and she will look great with it on.

Oh, and ladies, take a look at the lingerie, they have some gorgeous things and very sexy too.  I must admit that I was surprised at what I found so don’t be afraid to buy online, I have done it and was very happy with my purchases.  You can’t go wrong because if your measurements are correct and you guide yourself that way you will be fine.  In the event something doesn’t fit right or you miscalculated then I would say almost all stores will accept the items back for exchange, some offer store credit.
