Lane Bryant Sale Pick: Pleated Tunic

Lane Bryant Sale Pick: Pleated Tunic

Looking for something that meets your budget requirements and that’s really high on style? I’m going to admit that I was surprised to see this pick at Lane Bryant, mostly because it was particularly gorgeous and (in my head) worth three times as much! That’s not so bad, is it?

Threadless Carries Plus Sizes, Holds Contests

Threadless Carries Plus Sizes, Holds Contests

I’ve been following Threadless for some time, but it’s taken me this long to realize that they were very plus-friendly! What have I been missing?! (See above for your answer.) Threadless tees are available for women up to size 2XL on the site, and what’s even better is that you’re not getting gouged on the [...]

Lane Bryant: Cacique's New Push-Up Demi Bra

Lane Bryant: Cacique’s New Push-Up Demi Bra

One thing that quickly changes an outfit is a good bra, and I covet the amazing ones that I’ve discovered so far (the best ones were from Simply Be and Hips & Curves in 2008). Now there’s a new demi push-up in town from Cacique, and to be honest, it’s vying for my attention and [...]

What I'm Wearing: SWAK Designs

What I’m Wearing: SWAK Designs

I have a new favorite long-sleeved shirt from SWAK Designs, and since it’s affordable and good for spring, I thought I’d share. You can pick it up starting at size 2X (which works perfectly for 1X gals, too), and it goes all the way up to 5X. Color combos include blue and white as well [...]

When In Doubt, Go the Belted Dress Route

When In Doubt, Go the Belted Dress Route

Do you feel that plus-size designers are convinced we love the trapeze shape? As most of us know (or have learned through trial-and-error), nothing could be farther from the truth! Let’s make a promise to ourselves to aim for more shapely selections with beaded waistlines (see here) and nipped-in shapes that show off Be Sociable, [...]

Missphit Features Fun Plaids

Missphit Features Fun Plaids

Mmmmm, Missphit. I just zipped over there after they were featured in the L.A. Times, and they’ve got a cool bonanza of plaids going on! While this piece has some amazing details like a ruffled front yoke and a shaped midsection, there are also more casual cowboy-plaid shirts that will go awesome with jeans. Now [...]

ELSPETH New York Offers Plus-Friendly Bag

ELSPETH New York Offers Plus-Friendly Bag

What’s in a plus-size bag, anyway? While I’ve never run into a purse that’s marketed for women of size (I’m sure they are out there, though), I think it’s more a proportions/color game than anything else. You need balance and comfort, and straps can’t be too short. This featured bag from ELSPETH New York does [...]

I’m constantly on Old Navy to see what they have to offer in the way of clearance, and let me tell you– their picks are great right now for discounted tops. You can get a lot of lightweight pieces and floral-patterned blouses for a song right now, and that’s without confusing coupon codes! Be Sociable, [...]

Where Do You Buy Larger-Sized Shoes?

Where Do You Buy Larger-Sized Shoes?

Do you wear larger-sized shoes? Where do you shop for them? If you have a secret internet stop instead of a local cobbler genius, it’s time to spill! Tonight I was on one of my favorite sites, Vivre, and I happened upon a rather gorgeous pair of blue sling-back heels. . . that only go [...]

Will You Shop for Forever 21 Plus Pieces?

Will You Shop for Forever 21 Plus Pieces?

I’m on the fence about Forever 21’s new plus-size range, which is reported to be coming out in May in sizes up to 2X. I’ve read so many reviews of Forever 21– both positive and negative– over the years, and my rather unfortunate run-ins with certain pieces are making me nervous. In my imagination, the newest [...]

A Comfy Dress That Suits Your Figure

A Comfy Dress That Suits Your Figure

Old Navy calls this dress “effortlessly sophisticated,” and I am inclined to agree: available in both pink and blue, it’s available from size 16 and combines a buttoned-up silhouette with something much more comfortable. It’s like one of the most stylish shirt dresses you’ll ever wear. . . but with shape this time. Be Sociable, [...]

Silhouettes' Cover-Ups: Recommended

Silhouettes’ Cover-Ups: Recommended

I found a great hooded tropical print cover-up at Silhouettes, and it has no typical “plus details” anywhere on it (yay!). We’re always bemoaning those a-line dresses and empire-waist tops that sneak their way into our closets, but with this one, you’ll feel like you could be wearing any size. Be Sociable, Share! Tweet

JCPenney Sale Makes Me Crave Ruffles

JCPenney Sale Makes Me Crave Ruffles

JCPenney has me craving ruffles, and I’m not going to try to hold back because of little things like “fashion rules.” Yes, I might be busty, but these two shirts are soooo spring-y and adorable, and I could care less about wearing something streamlined and classic at this point! I think I’m going to pick [...]

Shop I Enjoy: Fashion Bug

One of my favorite springtime shopping sprees usually turns out to be unexpected. Last year, I was picking up shoes for a fashion show and I ran into a line of adorable tops and trousers that I might have just added to my cart. I fear that this year will turn out similarly, judging from [...]

My Fave New Pants!

My Fave New Pants!

When you’re plus-sized, those fold down athletic waistbands can be really problematic. While you might think they look super comfy, they “cut you in half” by squeezing your stomach and generally make things not so pretty (especially if you’re going for a smooth look for the gym!).

What’s On Old Navy Clearance, Plus Edition

Old Navy always has amazing sales, but I’m usually most impressed post-summer. That being said, I had a peek today over at their clearance section, and I thought that things were looking pretty nice. They have a healthy selection of multicolored knit tops, complete with design details like puff sleeves, pearly buttons, and shaped bodices. [...]

Beaded Dress Up to Size 26

Silhouettes– which just so happens to make shoes of my dreams and very appropriately-proportioned/scaled plus items– has this great beaded dress in their “new items” department. I feel a little guilty about featuring it, because they have a ton of spring stuff and swimwear, but then again, we’re probably all headed to Be Sociable, Share! [...]

eShakti is one of my favorite companies out there: they offer amazing price points (starting at about $30), handcrafted pieces with detailing like embroidery, beading, cutwork, and appliques, and– the best part– customizable anything on the items they offer.
