I am not sure if it is my background as a plus size model and stylist or just me true love of Fashion that drives me to seek out the best looks to dress my body. I have been plus size for as long as I can remember and I am not promoting any size agenda here this is not an us vs them situation I think all bodies deserve great clothing. I believe in and support size acceptance. What I don't believe is that your size means you can't look and feel your best. I try and leave my house everyday as my most confident self. When I go looking for new fun things to wear I really think about how my whole body will look in an outfit.
The purpose of today's post is to answer the question I get most often where do I find cool plus size clothes. I wish I could tell you it was easy it is not but it is getting easier to find them. The problem is that you have to do a lot of online shopping which has its own set of drawbacks but that is another blog for another time. Here is a list of the places I love
kiyonna Have been a huge fan of this line since its beginning they do a great dress
igigi Started in SF and I have a few great formal dress from here they know how to make plus size sexy
Eloquii This is my new favorite place this is the limited plus size brand
Simple Be I got a super cute bathing suit and dress from here and just got the fall line catalog in AMAZING
Ruche fun clothing at a great price.
Asos fun trend clothing from the UK
Making it Big Great local company who has great extended sizing.
I also want to give a shout out to my favorite plus size fashion blogger. Marie Deene The Curvy Fashionista who keeps me on the latest in the plus size fashion world. Check out her blog it is a great read.
So if you are a plus size women there is no longer an excuse for not trying to find amazing clothing in your size there are options. I have even recently stepped out of my comfort zone and bought a jumpsuit that I paired with fun wedges and a denim jacket. I am so glad I did. It had been a look I did not think I could pull off but I did and it felt good to break one of my own style rule. It gets hard to get out of your rut but when you do it can be worth it.
These are just a few I have even more that I will blog about on another day. Head to facebook and like these companies pages they have great sales and specials all the time.
