New Arrivals: Women’s Plus Size Tops

Just In, New Arrivals, What’s New and Hey, look at me I am here!  I love shopping or at least browsing the internet for women’s clothes, accessories, shoes and handbags.  I usually start at products that are New or have “Just Arrived”.  I especially do this when I am a frequent browser on a specific clothing store for big sizes.  This is a great way to discover new trends (not to say I follow trends but its always an eye-opener for me what other women are purchasing).  It is also a location to discover fabrics and basic styles.  Most clothing designers tend to use their classic pattern and adjust it.  The alteration can be at the neckline, sleeve or the body of the blouse.  I love to see their current ideas and of course will I like it (and will it fit!)

New Arrivals will be priced at full cost.  Usually, new clothes will be limited in sizes and their quantities.  Sometimes I buy a full retail price, especially if I really LOVE it and got to have it.  But like most women, I love a sale and discount.  I have found if I sign up for the online store’s Newsletter you can get a coupon at sign-up.  Sometimes their coupon is sent to you right away or it will come in their weekly or monthly eNews.  Here is a sign-up eNews site that you will get a coupon code about 48 hours after you sign up.  In fact,  they tend to send discounts up to 15% off any garments, which includes New Arrivals.

Are there any women’s online clothing stores for big sizes that have New Items that you like?  Let me know.  I love to file a great find!

Trends-Fashion-Fit: Dress Accordingly to your Body Type

Whoever grew up with the words “honey, don’t forget to pick out a trendy outfit for school today” or “Lisa, review your Vogue before class”.   Who starts a trend?  A trendy person?  There are lots of trends:  food, yoga, apps, wine and of course my favorite fashion.  Coco Channel truly had some of these best quotes pertaining to fashion, like:

That says it All for me.

  • Be you
  • Be your own trend

Especially when it comes to plus size clothing.  You can combine trends in small amounts but the most important is to know your body type first.  Take a look into the mirror.  What is reflected back you?  Is your body type any of these:

  • apple,
  • pear or
  • hourglass

Every women has a certain body type which is unique and beautiful.  Street clothing trends do not feature sizing for women over a size 14 and in fact definitely not over size 16.   That is the truth.  However they are catching up with women’s plus size clothing companies like Kiyonna. (Lane Bryant dances around trends and Macy’s sizing stops at a 2x.  I will not even discuss Express!)  Often when a skinny-trendy-fashion is introduced it does not translate so well into plus sized clothes.  The designers do not understand our proportions.  WE DO NOT GET WIDER! OUR SHOULDERS and NECKS DON’T INCREASE IN THICKNESS AND WIDTH!

I am not going to tell you what to wear for your body type; instead this is a lecture to discover clothing that fits and accentuates your best features.  If you are a pear you have a bit of a waist and curves about the hips.  If you are an apple celebrate your body shape, because you have curves!  Now here is the secret:  the best plus size clothing you can purchase and wear is the one that looks best on you.  Let the skinny’s spend their monies on fashion that is meant to go out of style.  Instead you will always be in fashion because you have set the trend.

Now go out there and show them!  Build a clothing collection that is YOU!
