I Hate It When Plus Size Clothes Are Not Fashionable

    Clueless

    I'm a plus size woman, but still have what is considered an hourglass shape. I've also heard it called a figure 8 shape (plus size women with hourglass shapes). Anyway, I finally started working and now my family has extra spending money. I haven't shopped for clothes in...

    Fashionable Plus-sized Clothing Are A Pretty Recent Trend...

    The simple answer is that the size of the Average American Woman (or Man) is a lot bigger than what this country's society was long ready to admit to. The kind of so-called "styles" plus-sized people have been limited to is in line with this denial but also perhaps a kind of a...

    Seriously People

    I, as a bit girl know that some things i should just NOT wear.  That's cool- i have very little interest in a string bikini blown up to "big girl" size-  but they exist none-the-less. BUT- there are plenty of fashionable clothes that would translate into...

    Fat Man...

    For me, it's not easy to get nice clothes. All my suits are expensive and tailor-made, but the rest of my clothes are just terrible. Nothing fashionable or nice about them at all... Like the wearer.

    I Am Not A Purple Zebra.

    It is entirely frustrating to go into a shop and to find everything that is in my size has some horrid print on it (or, even worse, coloured like a school bus). I fail to see how a busy pattern of geometric shapes or pseudo-leopard print would look appealing, even on a thinner...

    Just Not Right!

    I walk through the mall and see such cute outfits. Fitted and colorful fabrics, all the latest styles. Unfortunately, if you are plus size, you can't wear them. There are only a couple stores in our area that cater to curvy women. Fashion Bug was my all time favorite but they...

    This is an awesome group! It's so true though... either they are just plain ugly with floral prints that a couch wouldn't even wear or they are cut for a tiny person who likes high waisted tops and short sleeves. I have lily white arms covered in freckles so I prefer to wear...

    Catherine's Store

    Ladies, you need to get your sexy plus size bodies over to Catherine's or Lane Bryant stores. Those stores cater to plus size women. My wife discovered them and she has some very sexy jeans and capris to wear that accentuate the positives of her very chubby butt and make it very...

    Realistically...

    I know us plus-size women can't wear the same thing as a thin person...but come,on! We still want to feel attractive and love fashion,too! I have found two places that are actually stylish. Avenue and Old Navy...unfortunately,ON only has plus-sizes online.

    Seriously!

    The average American woman wears a size 14, which by industry standards makes the average American woman plus-sized.  All the same, I'm sure we've all noticed how the plus-sized section of stores always seems to be hidden in the back like some dirty little secret, and the...
