To be perfectly honest, when I started looking at plus size suits, I really didn't expect to find my size in there. It was a bit of a shock, taking me back to the days when I shopped at a specialty store - for the tall items. In those days, plus sizes started at about size 18, not size 12.
But I guess times have changed.
Luckily, so have designs for larger sizes. Once I recovered from the idea that 12 is now a plus-size, I started really looking at the clothes. And, happily, these are not my mother's styles.
The worst thing about tall and big sizes for women has always been the frumpiness of the options. One trip through these pages will make it clear that not being a size 0 doesn't mean not dressing with style.
Admittedly, I don't wear suits anymore. But the separates are just amazing and really inspire me to update my wardrobe. Nothing super business-y or overly fancy would suit (pardon the pun) my current lifestyle.
But (for example) this gorgeous linen dress, over a pair of jeans or leggings would be a perfect dressed-up-casual outfit for dinner out, trips to the store, or an evening with family over the holidays. Just add some chunky jewelry and a little half-boot - c'est parfait.
And, please, don't get me started on the gorgeous sheaths and flared tank dresses. Those are so my favorite dress styles. It's nice to know that attractive styles are available in my size.
