Comfortable Plus Size Tops For Fall

The summer went flying by and now here we are in autumn once again. The cold and breezy days mean it’s time to wear some warmer outfits. But a chilly morning can change into a warm and sunny day so easily. That’s why I’m all about comfortable and versatile fashions for this fall. I like plus size tops that are easy to mix and match depending on the weather.

One of my favorite new tops for this fall is 3/4 sleeve button up front blouse. It has a warm brown color with a stylish black print. I love the 3/4 sleeve; it’s just warm enough for most autumn days. And if it’s a little chillier than usual, I can layer it over a tank top too. The print makes this blouse look fantastic with ebony jewelry, which just happens to be my favorite.

I believe that whether you’re running errands, going out to a special event, or working at the office plus size clothing should be comfortable and stylish. Thankfully, some designers agree and have really outdone themselves, creating fantastic mature plus size clothing for women that is both comfortable and versatile for this fall. By layering your outfits and using some stylish accessories and jewelry, you can create fantastic fall outfits that are sure to get you noticed no matter where you go.

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!

Women’s Plus Size Clothing: Sale, Discounts, Coupons

I love a sale!  At the moment,  www.comfortinfashion.com is offering a “Welcome” coupon.  It is pretty simple.  Just go to the website, browse their women’s plus size clothing, add to your cart and when checking out enter the code:  goodgoing

Your total purchase will be subtracted by 15%.  This is great!  You save on shipping and more.  Even better if you order $150 or more Comfort in Fashion offers free shipping within the USA.  And!  You can get the 15% off your first order.  That is a good deal.

Not too many plus size clothing stores for larger women always offer a newcomers discounts.  I think it is a pretty good idea to get the questionable buyer to purchase.  Often I can be on a fence about a website, especially when it comes to clothing and electronics.  I prefer to have sales and discounts on my first order rather than a coupon for my next purchase.  (Geez, how do I know when my next purchase is going to happen?  I tend to live from paycheck to paycheck!  And like most people, I believe, I already know what I will do with those monies!)

Besides Comfort in Fashions “Welcome Coupon” they have other sales.  If you go to their website there is a category Clearance.  Their Clearance is a very serious deep women’s clothing discounts.  Most of the tops, blouses and shirts are $24.95, as well as their separates, tunics and cotton jackets.  The price is great.  Of course their sizes and quantities are limited they usually have something in my size.  (I am a 3x with a bit of chest and need more room at the hip.)  This is also a great way to try their clothing.  Remember, this is a clearance category and garments are non-returnable.  In addition, they cannot be exchange.  But, heck for $24.95 its worth it.

I love to hear about other sales, discounts and coupons for big sizes.  Let me know what you have found!  Happy Shopping.

New Women’s Plus Size Clothing Ideas for Spring

Spring is the perfect time to rethink your plus size clothing wardrobe and add some lovely new color and life to your outfits. After the dark and dreary days of winter it feels great to get out lighter, brighter blouses and let spring inspire your style. There are three great ways to get a whole new look this spring.

New Color

Some women shy away from big size bright colors and light pastels. There is still the unnecessary stereotype that plus size clothing has to be black or at the very least made in dull colors. Reject those outdated ideas – bring new color into your spring wardrobe.

If you are looking to get inspired by the season, go for a floral theme. Let the blooming flowers all around you create the perfect color palette for your new spring style.

Freshen up your outfits and create a clean, bright style by complementing pastel tops with white pants and skirts. Brightly colored skirts look great too; they can liven up an outfit and create a gorgeous ensemble that is perfect for spring.

Bring the bright, clean look of spring to your accessories too. Chunky necklaces, bracelets, and rings in spring colors are perfect for complementing even a casual outfit. If a spring day gets a little chilly, add a pastel colored scarf to your outfit; it’s a simple accessory that does a lot to dress up your look.

The Stigma of Plus Size Clothing

There is no doubt that the fashion industry has embraced plus size clothing during the last several years. It was once taboo to produce a plus size line, but now designers are racing to create their own. More and more women are also developing their own personal styles and enjoying the new world of fashion that has been opened to them. Sadly, there is still a bit of stigma around the term “plus size” that can affect some women.

Separating women into the “normal” and “plus” sized categories seems unnecessary to some folks. After all, can’t all of the sizes just be considered normal? Although this is one argument, more women are concerned about the advent of plus sizes for younger children. It could be difficult for a 10, 11, or 12 year old girl to shop in the plus size section and then be teased or singled out by her friends.

Obviously, debates of this nature are complex and multi-faceted. What is truly important is that, regardless of what they are called, designers continue to create stylish, flattering clothing for women of all sizes. For now, that means plus size clothing. If that title changes at some point, hopefully it will be in response to the greater acceptance by society of women of all shapes and sizes.

Casual Plus Size Clothing for Summer Travel

Summer is almost here, and many folks are already busy making their plans for this season’s vacation. While taking some time off is always enjoyable, planning and packing can be stressful. Here are some tips for preparing a suitcase full of casual plus size clothing for summer travel.

Lightweight: Summer style should be light, cool, and relaxed – especially when you are on vacation! So bring light cotton, linen, and jersey tops that won’t weigh you down. This will also help you with the second tip…

Pack Light: Traveling is much easier when you make an effort to pack light. This is easy if you bring a few plus size separates that can be mixed and matched to create several outfits. For example, bring a skirt to wear with some of your casual tops. Pack a dressy cover-up that matches one of your tops and now you’ve created a formal outfit – and you only had to pack one extra piece!

Pack Easy: Pack items that are easy to launder and don’t require ironing. That way you won’t be stuck searching for an iron in your hotel room. Casual plus size clothing that is easy to care for also tends to be lightweight, so you can check off the second tip, too.

Casual Plus Size Clothing for Holiday Travel

Happy Holidays from Generous Fashions!

All around the world, thousands of people are getting ready for their holiday travel plans.  By train, plane, and car, relatives travel hundreds of miles to be together with their family during this special season.  The holidays are an exciting and memorable time for you to relax with your friends and relatives.  But before you can get to that relaxing time, you may run into a stressful task: packing for your trip.  What casual plus size clothing is best to bring along for holiday travel?

Keep It Simple

Over-packing is not a good thing; it will leave you stressed before, during, and after your trip.  Keeping your travel attire simple and stylish is ideal.  Plus size separates will help you do that.  Bring a few basic bottoms – your most comfortable pants and skirts – and mix and match them with some simple separates.  With just a few tops and bottoms, you can create several great outfits for your trip.   Pack some solid color pants (or 1-skirt).  Mostly likely you will have a pair of black pants, if not,  you should go ahead and purchase a pair.  Black pants as you know will go with everything and if you get a stain its easy to wash.  If you also have a navy pair of pants that is good too.  Try to say away from white color tops and pants while on vacation, unless you know you can get them cleaned.

Keep It Low-Maintenance

You don’t want to spend your whole holiday laundering and ironing finicky garments.  If you pack wrinkle resistant and wrinkle free items, you will be much more relaxed during your time with family.  Less time ironing means more time with the people you love, which is always a good thing.

Don’t let your clothing become an obstacle to a great holiday trip.  Pack simple, low-maintenance casual plus size clothing.  You’re sure to have a lovely holiday!

Wrinkle Free Casual Plus Size Clothing

Wrinkling is a pain, especially if you are traveling or in a rush.  In the early to mid 90’s, wrinkle free fabrics became popular, and now you can find a lot of wrinkle free casual plus size clothing.  How do designers manage to save their garments from the curse of wrinkles?  And why should you add some wrinkle free styles to your wardrobe?

Some manufacturers use finishing agents on their clothing to prevent wrinkles.  Others use fabric blends, combining cotton with synthetic materials to keep clothes looking great and wrinkle free.

Here are a list of some good choices:  it is best to find a blend that has 10% or more spandex or lycra.  These threads help at reducing wrinkles and maintain the integrity of the fabric.

1. 10% lycra and 90% cotton jersey

2. 15% spandex and 85% rayon jersey

3. 10% lycra and 90% silk

4.  10% spandex, 40% viscose and 45% cotton

5. 100% cotton paris

6. fabrics with tightly woven threads  tend to hold better because the sewing needle does not break the fabric

Here is a list of some fabrics that are a bit less wrinkle free.  These fabrics are still wonderful but you might have to let them hang dry or iron or take to the cleaners for pressing.  Do not shy away from them because of their maintain.  These fabrics do not cling and flow over the body nicely.

1. 100% viscose

2. 100% rayon

3. 100% cotton

4. 100% cotton slub

5. Second quality rayon you should never purchase

6. rayon jersey without a blend will not hold up in the washing machine.  Stay away from this fabric.

Of course, there is so substitution for ironing.  Even a wrinkle free garment may have minor wrinkles after a wash.  But, when you are traveling and don’t have time to iron, these are by far your best option.

So, before you head out on vacation, do some shopping for wrinkle-free casual plus size clothing.  It will save you time and stress while you’re traveling and keep you looking great.
