Shopping For Plus Size Clothing Isn’t Easy!

I don’t think many people without curves realize just how expensive it can be to buy clothing when you’re full-figured.

I wish more stores carried both plus size clothing and non-plus size, so that we could shop together when I do.

I was happy to hear that someone named Gwen DeVoe has founded “Full-Figured Fashion Week” in hopes of bringing our plight to light in the eyes of mass retailers. It seems like every time I watch a reality show these days, someone is at fashion week in New York. There are NO curves on those runways!
