    IGIGI Plus Size Charming Romance Wedding GownHearing wedding bells? If you are planning your wedding, the last thing you need is added expenses. If you are a plus size woman who wants to look fabulous on her wedding day, and dressing up the bridesmaids in gorgeous dresses, without breaking the bank, I suggest you take a look at the bridal collection at IGIGI.

So you can look great, make a lasting impression (on the guests, as well as the groom ;-) ) whilst keeping within budget. Take a look at some of my favorite dresses:

    • Lace Wedding Gown – If I were getting married tomorrow, this is the dress I would choose. It is a gorgeous lace dress, very romantic and a dream at only $229.
    • Chloe Lace Gown in Ivory – Another extremely elegant piece, the contrasting lining featured in this dress create a wonderful feeling of sophistication for a feminine look. Only $219.

Why not get the Exquisite Evening Gown in Blue/Sky Bluefor your bridesmaids, this will create a sharp contrast that will look bold and very stylish.

    Maurice’s Stores Add Plus Size Line

    In a bid to widen their store offerings to plus size women all over the U.S., Maurice’s stores have started adding a new plus size section to their collections. In fact, out of their 575 stores across the U.S., three-fourths of them will now include a plus size section which will focus on sizes 16 to 24. With a lot of customers coming in for this new plus size range, just a few days after its introduction, Maurice’s are already calling this company-wide launch a success. It is great to see more stores adding a plus size range to their store offerings. Besides opening up new fashion choices to plus size women, such initiatives also encourage other stores to expand their range of apparel and accessories to accommodate the curvier side of the nation. Kudos to Maurice’s!

    Just As Beautiful Mag: New Issue Out Now!

    It has been a few month now since I discovered Just As Beautiful magazine, an online free magazine hailing from the UK dedicated to plus size women. This truly is a magazine with a difference, and one of the reasons why I like it is because it is real. It features stories written by and created for big beautiful women, and topic covered range from fashion, health, beautiful and entertainment issues.

    This weekend the May issue of Just As Beautiful magazine was sent out to subscribers, and it is chock full of interesting stuff including:

    • A great piece on how Trinny and Susannah (two famous UK stylists) teach a plus size couple what to wear, and what to stay away from!

    • A story on how Lisa Marie and Cher Rue, founders of Club Bounce, met and started off on a great journey of curvy success.
    • A piece on Britain’s largest teenager, a 34 stone 19 year old, who recounts some tough times she passed through, during what was supposed to be the best time of her life.
    • A great real life story of how diet pills nearly turned a woman’s life into a horror story!

    If you would like to add more to your plus size focused reading, then definitely add Just As Beautiful magazine to your list of ‘to read items’!
