As plus size fashionistas continue to lead the charge for market share and demand respect, we see more and more brands and designers trying to get a leg up on the competition. I myself am very excited to see all the developments taking place. These are just 3 of my recent favs!
Ashley Nell Tipton with JC Penny for the Boutique+ collection!
This is the most epic collaboration. Not only does Ashley have exquisite taste and an eye for style, but she’s a fellow fat girl! So you know without a doubt no one has to tell her, we need a little stretch in our fabric. The tops and Tees seem to run a little large, so you should size down. Now when was the last time you heard that!?
She knows about that meat on the back of our legs that we don’t like to show! So she has bottoms and skirts midi length. How ever there are a few shorts in the collection.
I’m sure she is all too familiar with the mutant second stomach that hangs down below our hip line! So guess what she designs for that body.
I’m very much in love with both graphic tees, the blush pleated skirt, the cold shoulder tops, and the distressed knickers.
Now here is the best part, right now they are 40 % off! With price points this low ( 12.99- 35.99) I can pretty much get all of my favorite pieces.
Thanks to the lovely Kelly Augustine we have a video of the full runway show!!! It’s at the end of the post!!!!
I love that all the clothes are shown on real bodies!
Curvy Style With Timothy Snell
The tag line says it all A-list Style for the everyday physique. He’s called the bodyguard of curvy fashion. I first heard Of him as Queen Lateefa’s stylist. He has styled some of thee most famous curvy body’s we know today.
On the show that airs on BET’s Centric channel Saturday at 10, he dresses one celeb client and one everyday woman. In both segments he gives tips for how he dresses certain body types. There has only been 2 episodes and already he’s touched on proper undergarments ( in my opinion the #1 plus size mistake), the importance of taking care of yourself as a mother and wife, and insecurities about issues we may or may not have.
We really need to support this show. It’s the first show where plus sized fashion is center stage!
Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant
This Runway show was a lot more formal. It was held outside at the United Nations in NYC! The setting was beautiful, and the clothes looked divine! It was very much a start studded “Fashion” event. Lots of celebrities and pretty people. Miss Danielle Brooks stole the show in this bright yellow number that flowed like she had wings!
The collection is very light and airy! Lots of bright colors, lots of patterns, all in all a very girly girl look! Now true to Lane Bryant the price points are on the high side ( 29.95-168). However there is a discount code 👇.
Buy 1 get 75% with code LOVELB
I’ll probably just wait for the price to go down. I’d rather wait to have something I really want, instead of buying something else just for the price.
