If you are a plus size woman, you know how incredibly difficult it is to find fashionable clothing. Since my injury and subsequent monumental weight gain, clothing has been the bane of my existence. Lucky for me, I work from home and home school, so I am not out of the house very often. The only person I was seeing on a regular basis besides my family was my doctor. I am pretty sure he did not give a hoot what I was wearing during my visits! Now that I am lucky enough to be traveling to conferences and such for the blog, I needed a makeover: Stat! Thankfully, I was introduced to an angel by the name of Alexandra Boos who was sent to rescue me! Alexandra has worked in the full figured industry for over 20 years, so she knows her stuff. When she suggested I take a look a the fashionable clothing for plus size women from Ulla Popken.
Fashionable Clothing For Plus Size Women
It has been a while since I have had so much fun shopping, so it was long overdue! I played around on the Ulla Popken website for almost 2 hours trying to narrow down my choices. It is no wonder that this website gets more than 2 million visitors a year. I mean, they have gorgeous clothing ladies! Ulla Popken is one of the largest (and I bet most popular) retailers of fashionable clothing for plus-sized women in the United States and Europe. I take to heart the beliefs of the company president, Phyliss Mosca whose focus is to empower women,especially us plus size girls! I LOVE her! Thank you Alexandra for sharing the video interview with Phyliss!
I was sent the most amazing outfit from Ulla Popken and I could not be happier with it! I was looking for something that would look professional but casual at the same time. I also wanted something that was feminine but not too girly. I think Alexandra and I (she had to narrow my choices down ya’ll!) I was sent the Lace Framed Boho Tunic for its delicate crocheted lace trim and 3/4 length sleeves. For the bottoms, I decided on a comfortable pair of the Stretch Knit Slim Cut Leggings in black. To pull the look all together and add a pop of color, I received the cute Textured Cabana Striped Fabric Ballerina flat in the azalea and natural stripe. I have never worn a more comfortable pair of shoes as these.
I must give a shout out for the EXCELLENT customer service folks that Ulla Popken has. My original pair of shoes were too big and Joyce Maley had a replacement pair and a return label to me within a few days. It is people like Joyce and Alexandra that make a great company a stellar company. If you are looking for great looking clothing that is affordable and you are a size 12W-38W, Ulla Popken is a fantastic choice. My outfit and the other fine clothes from Ulla Popken can be purchased from the Ulla Popken website. My shirt retails for $49, my pants for $49 and my shoes for $29.
