    Curvy Holiday Style – Dress it Up or Down

    Ladies, now is the time to gear up for the holidays!

    All the holiday parties can get overwhelming. So it is best to have a couple of versatile pieces that will work for the dressy parties and the casual parties, pieces that will transition easily from day to night.

    “I love to dress up my favorite holiday tops… and dress them down too,” says Christine Alt, Woman Within Style Consultant. “Because each top is so versatile, I can make it work for so many occasions. I always make sure these favorite pieces are super comfortable so that I can wear them over and over again!”

    Woman Within’s selection of versatile tops make holiday dressing comfortable, easy and fun! Here are a couple of ideas and examples:

    Velour A'line Tunic

    Velour A-line tunic
    The baby doll cut in this top is so flattering. Add your favorite jewelry to dress this top up or wear it with a simple black pant for an everyday look. Sells at $19.99 – $24.99.

    Luxe knit scoop neck pullover sweater

    Lurex® knit scoop neck pullover sweater
    Lurex is a great fabric for the holidays. The sparkle works well with jeans, velvet and wool. Pair it with a skirt for a more dressy look, or put on a pair of jeans for a more casual night out. Sells at $24.99 – $29.99.

    Hawaiian Plus Size Line Launched

    plus size Hawaiian shirtWave Shoppe Hawaiian Shirts has been on a quest to produce fashionable Hawaiian shirts that slenderize the large and lovely woman, and their goal has finally been achieved.

    Wave Shoppe’s quest started around a year ago when they received several requests from women who were looking for Hawaiian themes shirts to fit their fuller figure. They received several comments like “I really love the shirts on your website but I need a larger size,” or “I am going to a party and can’t find a shirt to fit me anywhere”. After several such phone calls and emails were received, Charles and Peggy at Wave Shoppe decided to move forward and offer shirts for plus sized women.

    First they started working on finding a pattern maker that had experience in making plus size Hawaiian shirts for women.  After several lengthy meetings and sifting through test patterns, the perfect combination was chosen and samples were sewn up.

    At this time Charles and Peggy had several women who knew they were going to make plus size shirts so they stayed in contact with them and actually sent them the samples created to try out send feedback on. So Wave Shopped sent off their newly created plus size samples to different sized women, who in turn were asked to rate the shirts on comfort and fit, besides other thinks. Charles and Peggy adjusted the selected patterns based on the suggestions received and thanks to the efforts and ideas of the selected women changes to the patterns were incorporated.

    The next step was to find the fabrics to make the shirts. They wanted fabrics that were colorful, snappy and fresh. Most of all they wanted fabrics that would breathe well, feel comfortable and make future customers look fashionable.

    After all the hard work, the goal was finally achieved! Wave Shoppe today are very excited and proud to announce the addition of their new plus size line of Hawaiian shirts. Their new shirts are colorful, fun and trendy. Do check then out at Wave Shoppe.

    Charles and Peggy’s story is a wonderful example of online stores listening to customer suggestions and opening up their shop and business to accommodate a wider audience. This I am sure will definitely be appreciated by their potential plus size customers. This story should be an encouraging example to other clothing stores who might be receiving queries from potential customers to widen their selection. Listen to your potential customers!

    New Holiday Party Dresses at Sydney’s Closet

    Sheer Delight - plus size dressSydney’s Closet has long been a favorite among plus size women, and young girls especially, looking for formal and party dresses for those special occasions. So no wonder it is a favorite among these special times when most ladies are looking for that great dress to wear at a Christmas party of some sort.

    Only recently, Sydney’s Closet have started their own collection of dresses, which of course they are offering online at their online store. Last week in fact, they have added three new additions for their collection, new dresses which are perfect party dresses to choose to wear during the holiday season. Here is a rundown of what these three new dresses are all about…

    My favorite out of the new three dresses is the one picture here, which is aptly named Sheer Delight. It is an A-line dress featuring charmeuse satin and netting fabric. Although it is picture here as being a strapless dress, option spaghetti straps are included with the dress, which is great as this satisfies your tastes whether you prefer to wear a strapless dress or not. The ruched bodice and empire waistline flatters the curvy figure, whilst the ribbon embellishment on the skirt is simply gorgeous. A matching shawl is very conveniently included with the dress. Perfecto!

    My second favorite is the bold Odyssey dress, which again comes in a figure flattering empire waistline. It features charmeuse satin fabric and the spaghetti straps can be adjusted to create your perfect fit. This dress features a tea length skirt, which I have to say I love. I am a person who loves wearing great shoes, and I have to admit I love showing off my ankles, so a tea length dress is a perfect compromise between a short skirted or long dress. To top it off, the Odyssey ships with a matching 3/4 length shrug. Hey presto, your outfit is complete.

    The last addition introduced by Sydney’s Closet last week is the beautiful cocktail dress named the Galaxy. This sexy dress features hand-beaded lace and charmeuse satin fabric. A feature which earns a lot of dress points with me is the sewn in bra. When the bra cups are sewn in a dress the correct way it add such comfort to a dress! A matching beaded 3/4 sleeved jackets ships along with this lovely dress.

    Do visit Sydney’s Closet to take a closer look at the dresses mentioned above, and also check out the wide variety of special occasion plus size dresses offered.

    Coats Up to Size 44W

    Plus size coatWeather is starting to get cold huh? Well do not fret! Just give cold weather cold shoulder by equipping yourself with a great, big comfy, cosy and warm coat. OneStopPlus has a great selection of plus size coats available, up to size 44W! New wool, leather and suede coats for casual, dressy and career occasions have in fact recently been added to their stock. All in sizes 14W to 44W.

    This collection of coats is truly a vast one. Do not get put off by the models OneStopPlus uses on their site, which are far from plus size. I must admit it was months until I warmed up to this online store, just because all the models used to display their clothing aren’t really big girls. But at least you have to OneStopPlus a tap on the back for honesty, and not getting these models all padded up, which would’ve been even worse. I just do not understand how they can use thin models when they are targeting ladies sizes 14 to 44. Anyways… rant over!

    Do not get put off by the models really. It is truly just a detail. Do not let it get in the way of you enjoying the great selection of items available at OneStopPlus, as they really have a great variety of plus size clothing available.
