Being a plus size fashionista sometimes poses a bit of a problem. There are so many curvy girls who are proud of their curves and want to show them off tastefully. Unfortunately, there are still so many designers who think all big girls want to look like a frump or the others who think we want to look like a cheap, tacky mess. So, what's a girl to do when you want to look and feel fabulous, but you can't find what you need? Online shopping has been a Godsend to me. There are many designers now who design with the curvy girl in mind. We all know that one misplaced dart or seam can take you from looking like a curvy bombshell to someone who's expecting a bundle of joy any day now. Some of my favorite websites right now are Monif C., Kiyonna and Igigi. They are not outrageously expensive, however you won't find $29.99 dresses here. These are investment pieces, but they are cut to flatter a fuller figure. So embrace those curves ladies and flaunt your stuff. (Please remember though, Spanx or other shapers are most definitely your friend!)
One of the most important things to note is that YOU have to embrace your curves. Decide what you want to accent and do that! Accent something that you love about yourself; be it your snatched waist or your killer legs, show off your 'ladies' with a beautiful decolletage neckline. Classy is always classic. And a well put together woman, no matter her size, is ALWAYS in style!
Until next time, be good to yourselves TrelleBlazers!
