Being someone who isn’t your stereotypical size 6-14 person, it’s really hard to find fashionable, flattering, affordable, and also just comfortable clothes! I have found some really wonderful places to shop, and I wanted to share what I find as much as possible with people who may struggle with this kind of thing as well!
I also want to do my best with sharing what I wear every day, where I got it, and how I decide to put an outfit together. I have certain things I need to look for when I buy clothes, and sometimes it’s really difficult, but once you find a store or even one brand that meets all those things, it’s easier to keep going back.
If I don’t want to buy something, or I see something particularly awesome but cannot buy it, I’ll take a picture of it, post it, and also say where you can find it.
Sometimes not being in that certain size range it makes it hard to dress appropriately to our size and I think I do a good job of doing that, or at least I am told that I look nice by other people.
Writing these posts I don’t really want to use the word “plus size” all the time, because we are just WOMEN. Women who are more limited with their clothing selection than others.
But I will say that I do get frustrated when I am out and I see someone who is my size who is wearing clothes that do not fit them, and I absolutely understand everyone has a different situation, and if that is how they feel comfortable, then more power to them! This is isn’t for them. This is for those people, like myself who may need a little help.
First rule of thumb is something I was told by my aunt, who taught me everything I know. She said, “Just try it on.” She always told me just because it looks one way on the hanger, doesn’t mean it will look the same way on you. I have gotten so many things this way and it was such an amazing piece of advice.
Right now, almost all of my clothes are from Nordstrom Rack (NR), or from Old Navy (ON). They always seem to have the best clothes.
