Category : Plus Size

Did you know that over 40% of women in the US population are size 14 and larger? Yet fashion is focused towards women of smaller sizes. As a plus size woman myself, I can fully attest to the retail difficulty I have in finding stylish, comfortable and supportive lingerie. Curvation by Vanity Fair Brands is stylish lingerie that encourages women to write their own rules when it comes to beauty and fashion and show off their curves. At Curvation, curvy isn’t a size, it’s an attitude.

The fashion bend towards curvy acceptance is refreshing and uplifting. No longer will I have to hide, cover, and pull my shoulders forward while wearing unattractive, uncomfortable and unsupportive bras. With brands like Curvation, that are celebrating women’s curves, we can embrace our plus sizeyness and celebrate the uniqueness that we are. As Curvation says: “luckily, beauty comes in all shapes and sizes” and girls, that’s sooo true.

I know many plus sized women worry about wearing prints and the fact that they could possibly give the impression of being larger than they would like to appear. However, that could not be further from the truth. Prints on plus sized women can add add the much needed oomph to an otherwise drab outfit.

Plus Size Prints

Trixxi cut out dress / Jones New York / Old Navy dress / Michael Kors top / Alex Evenings / Old Navy plus size blouse / Lucky Brand v neck top / Dex / DKNYC / Style & Co. plus size top

 

Whether it’s stripes or leopard a print can be worn by plus sized women if done right. Wearing a print can change your outlook on your little outfit whether running errands or going out to dinner.

Here are a few hints:

1. For an all over print do it in a lighter fabric that won’t cling to your body. A dolman sleeve top is a perfect way, because of the looser nature of the top the print won’t look like it’s clinging to your body.

2. Don’t make the print too big and bold. Bright huge roses will only make you look out proportioned by the big print.

3. Use animal prints thoughtfully. Use them as a metallic but pair with some awesome trouser jeans to show your chic style. Another way to use animal print is as an accent to a top, like just the sleeves.

4. Go retro mod prints in a tunic top or sheath dress. Pair with leggings or tights to complete the look this fall.

The most important thing to remember if you’re plus size is that prints are not out of the question. If you use them right they can really flatter your figure. If all else fails and you want to dip your toes into the pool of prints start out with a scarf and shoes. You’ll soon find yourself in love with wearing prints.

Do you have any great plus size print advice to share? I’d love to hear it.

Just because there’s still snow on the ground there’s no reason for you to wait to get a spring dress. Any day you’ll wake up and find it’s time to put one on, and it’s always best to be prepared right? Even better you could pair a cute spring style dress with some tights, cardigan and boots. You can bust out of your sweater dress and show you’re ready for a little spring style.

I posted several weeks ago about affordable comfortable bras for the ladies with an ample chest. I’m back to report I’ve discovered a new wonderful bra the Comfort Choice Side Wire bra at Full Beauty.  The revolutionary side wire minimizes the amount of underwire I have in my bra and allows me to feel well supported at the same time. It provides the shaping and support of an underwire with total freedom of a wirefree.

  • cushioned sidewire lifts & supports while preventing spillage
  • unique patented sidewire technology
  • delicate, but supportive lace top cups
  • power mesh side sling
  • front shoulder straps & back
  • smooth inner cups
  • adjustable comfort straps
  • back hook closure
  • washable nylon/spandex, importedScreen Shot 2012-12-13 at 12.35.06 PM

Although Full Beauty sells this as a plus size bra I want to remind all of you with larger chests that Full Beauty bras come in a variety of sizes that can be worn by women who have larger chets and are NOT plus size, at a price you can afford. The Side Wire bra comes in sizes 38 B to 54G, and priced around $30, which makes it practically unbeatable for a comfortable bra.

Full Beauty is giving 1 lucky Savvy Sassy Mom 2 bras simply by entering our giveaway. 1 winner will be getting both the Comfort Choice Side Wire (MSRP $36.99-$41.99) and the Comfort Choice Gel Strap (MSRP $36.99-$41.99).

When I was 6 months pregnant and edging toward my 3rd bra size. At 6 mo I was popping out of my current bra size, and Victoria’s Secret wasn’t carrying bras that were actually supportive anymore.

While living this conundrum of what to do about my bras, I was in one of my pregnancy boards, and someone mentioned the same problem. The first person to respond said something that 8+ years later I’ll never forget. She said that she goes to Lane Bryant to buy her bras. She said that without being pregnant she was a size 10, but it was the only store that carried nice bras in bigger sizes that were comfortable, and wait for it, reasonably priced. The very next day my mom went with me to buy bras at Lane Bryant and all was good in the world.

Unfortunately for me, my bra size has stayed in the $75+/a bra in any store. I don’t have that kind of money. However when I look on Sonsi I can get a bra like this Python Print Sateen Demi Bra for $40. Not only that, but it’s convertible.

 

Plus Size Bras That Fit Everyone

I know you didn’t want a whole long story, but the truth is that although these bras are sold in a store that is specialty sized if you have larger sizes chest this may solve your problem.

None of the bras that I love are over $50.

The last thing I’ll tell you is describedin 2 words as Customer Service. Some of the bras I ordered through Sonsi weren’t the right size. I could take the bras back to the Lane Bryant store. I went there with my mom (do you see a pattern) to exchange them. The women there knew so much about the bras they were able to stear me in a direction I never would have gone. Biggest surprise: demi bra. I never liked demi bras until my visit to the store.
