Plus Size Tops That Fit Around The Hip

Recently I was looking through my closet, trying to find something new to wear, and I stumbled upon a blouse that I hadn’t worn in ages. It was a gorgeous color, and I couldn’t for the life of me remember why I had stuffed this great blouse so far back in the closet. But I remembered the moment I tried it on. It fits great around the arms and chest, but it is way too tight in the hips. And that does not work for me.

It got me thinking about what features I look for in comfortable and casual plus size clothing. Because a nice outfit is about a lot more than just a pretty print. If I don’t feel comfortable, I don’t look comfortable. So I’ve taken this recent blouse discovery as a sign, from now on I will be sure to check the way my blouses fit around the hips before I buy them.

I got online and started checking out some of my favorite online clothing stores, and I was thrilled to see that designers have taken the hip fit into consideration on their new designs. Mature plus size clothing for women has to combine the right classic and casual style with a comfortable fit. If you’ve had a hard time finding tops that fit well around the hip, try shopping online using your measurements and online sizing charts to find the perfect fit for you.

Casual Plus Size Dresses

I used to have a terrible time finding plus size clothing casual dresses that would look nice at a formal occasion without being too dressy or uncomfortable. It seems like a lot of designers focus on making a stylish dress and forget all about comfort. But fortunately there are still some great designers out there making plus size clothing for real women.

I recently came across exactly what I wanted, a simple black dress that is comfortable and dressy without being overly formal. It’s everything I want from middle age plus size clothing; the straps are wide enough to comfortably cover bra straps and it has a gorgeous heart shaped neckline. The little elastic band at the armholes makes this dress super comfortable.

I love my casual plus size clothing, but I want to have a nice dress for more formal occasions too. My new plus size dress is perfect. When you are shopping for women’s plus size clothing, make sure you find styles that are both casual and comfortable.
