Beautiful Clothes for Plus Size Women
Why is it so hard to find beautiful clothes for plus size women? Like it or not, there are more choices than you can shake a stick at; as long as you don’t wear anything above a 16. I hate to go shopping because I get irritated at the “uniform” plus size women find. You know what I mean…the scoop neck tee shirt with ugly fabric and the crop pants with the elastic waist. Really? Who designed this stuff? Obviously not a plus size woman!! I can say I have found a few online stores that had some cute choices but they were a bit out of my price range. Luckily, I came across a company that offers a huge selection of plus size clothes, intimates, accessories and jewelry and they are really affordable.
Fashion to Figure is a family owned company that has been making pretty clothes for full figured women for more than 100 years. Their great-grandmother, who they called Gram, started making plus size friendly clothes from a sewing machine she bought with the money she got from pawning a pair of diamond earrings. I think their mission statement really sums up what this company stands for. They said Gram said you should never ask a woman to conform their figures to fashion but instead bring fashion to the full figured women. More than 100 years later, FTF continues to hold fast to Gram’s passion in dressing women in clothes they can feel beautiful in. With their wide range of products, you can literally buy an outfit from your skivvies to your earrings without leaving the store.
Trendy Outfits for Women
I want to find trendy outfits for women regardless of their size. FTF says fashion is a state of mind, not a size range and I love that. I can’t count how many times I have come home from shopping and was ashamed about my size. It is almost like the “grass is always greener” state of mind except in this case, the grass IS greener. It is like there is a huge divide between the 0-14 group and the 16+ group. I am so glad FTF allowed me to review one of their gorgeous tops (retail value $19.99) that is perfect for the approaching warmer weather. This fabric is lightweight chiffon with adorable ruffles and a tie at the waist that allows you to accentuate your waist instead of hiding it. When I tried it on, my daughter said “Mommy, you look like a beautiful princess!” Need I say more?
