Wide Leg Trousers: A Plus Size Do

Monday, October 29, 2007

Wide leg trouser pantsAccording to Post-Gazette writer, LaMont Jones, the skinny pants which were so popular during the summer months, are now losing their appeal and are being taken over by the ever favorite wide-leg trousers.

T.J. Maxx Fashion spokewoman, Laura McDowell said of this type of trousers: "They are very, very fashionable and they are very figure-flattering and forgiving. They provide a very nice line in a pleasing silhouette for all figure types. Women are rejoicing!"

Some women might thing wide leg trousers might make them look bigger due to more fabric being there, which continues to add to the width. But this is a preconception which should be forgotten altogether as wide leg pants flatter any type of figure.

Here are some tips for plus size women to make sure they chose the right wide leg pants:
  • If you have ample hips, make sure that the trousers do not start getting wide at the hips.
  • If you are quite tall, go for a longer top that hangs to just below the buttocks when wearing wide leg trousers, as this helps balance proportions. Adding a belt to this look is another nice touch.
  • If you are thick waisted, go for trousers with a drawstring waist to eliminate the extra girth added by a belt.
  • Wide leg pants look best in high heels, so do not be afraid to wear them. However the trousers should never drag to the ground, and should have a narrower top to provide visual balance.
  • Wear tops and blouses that fit close to the body, and if you prefer, tuck in the top.
So do not forget the wide leg pants this season. They are a hot items this fall and create a great modern look!

Size Acceptance Club Opens in Reno

Friday, October 26, 2007

Couple Tony Piersanti and Jean Olson, who have been dating for a year, have last week opened up a brand new plus size nightclub in Reno. They opened up this club for people of every size to come along and have a good time.

Being quite a 'different' couple, Tony being much thinner than Jean, they both wanted to provide people of every shape and size with somewhere they can go to, relax, enjoy themselves and just be who they are.

I think this is a great iniative this great couple has taken, and it is great for everyone in the Reno area to have a new club to socialize it.

For further details on the club, opening hours and how to get there visit Tony and Jean at

Torrid Goes Pink in October

Monday, October 15, 2007

National Breast Cancer FoundationTorrid has this month partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation in the fight against breast cancer. There are two ways we all can join in to help riase breast cancer awareness:
  1. Purchase specially marked products and Torrid will donate 20% of the proceeds to the NBCF. Torrid has a special collection of 'pink' items in their online store this month, and all of the products within this section, are eligible.
  2. Make a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Below are some facts about breast cancer, the key to protecting yourself is education: get to know tha facts, and what you can do for prevention.

Some facts:
  • Every two minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer.
  • This year more than 200,000 new cases of breast cancer are expected in the U.S.
  • One woman in eight who lives to the age of 85 will develop breast cancer during her lifetime.
  • Breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women between the ages of 40 and 55.
  • Seventy percent of all breast cancers are found through breast self-exams. Not all lumps are detectable by touch. Regular mammograms are highly recommended, along with monthly self-exams.
  • When breast cancer is found early, the five-year survival rate is 96%. This is good news! Over 2 million breast cancer survivors are alive in America today.
An early detection plan should include:
  • Clinical breast examinations every three years from ages 20 to 29, then every year thereafter.
  • Monthly breast self-examinations beginning at age 20. Look for any changes in your breasts.
  • Baseline mammogram by the age of 40.
  • Mammogram every one to two years for women 40 to 49, depending on previous findings.
  • A personal calendar to record your self-exams, mammograms, and doctor appointments.
  • A low-fat diet, regular exercise, and no smoking or drinking.

Mimi's Curvy Tops

Sunday, October 14, 2007

This has been a great summer for the plus size industry! With a lot of more great curvy fashion becoming available to full figured women, as well as a number of events and model searches being organized, the future for curvy fashion and plus size women worldwide looks bright and definitely stylish!

I have also been introduced to a number of new on-line plus size clothing stores this summer, including SWAK Designs, Belle Avenue and Mimi's Curvy Corner. I love discovering new stores on-line! Besides the fact that I love shopping, love looking at different styles and designs, the more curvy stores there are on-line, the more choice is available to plus size women, and that is something that curvy ladies have always craved for: more choices, but more importantly more stylish and quality choices.

Mimi's Curvy Corner is one of those budding on-line plus size clothing stores which has a bright future ahead. The selection offered at Mimis' Curvy Corner is a beautiful and fresh one, which offers options for both day and night. All styles are very contemporary and the price tags are incredibly attractive.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be able to try out first hand some of the curvy clothing offered by Mimi's Curvy Corner... and here is my take on the items:

1. Perfectly Plum Cross-Over Neck Top: The first things that struck me about this top was the color, it comes in a gorgeous purple tone, and since I have a soft spot for pinks and purples this top immediately made me smile. It is a casual top which I would choose to wear for a day out and about, and perhaps even for a casual coffee or movie in the evening. Paired up with either flats or kitten heels, this top can easily be worn up and down. It is incredibly comfortable and the V-neck give is a very sexy look. If you choose to wear this top for a casual evening out, it might be a good idea to match up some accessories to give it a complete different look; try matching up a pair of earrings and a nice necklace. This top features a cinched effect at both sides of the hips, and in my opinion this effect is the cherry on the cake for this top as it continues to define the curves and shape up the body. An essential ingredient in a curve flattering top.

2. Sexy Gold Empire Wait On/Off Shoulder Top: The next top which I took a look at is one which is more suited for wearing at a party or a night out with friends or your partner. It is a very cute brown top with gold detail. Again it comes in a plunging V-neckline, making it a very sexy number to wear! A ribbon details is found just under the breast line, joining up as a bow at the left hand side. This adds a gorgeous detail in my opinion and along with another great feature, the slightly cuffed sleeves, this is a top which will definitely make you stand out from the crowd. This tops can be worn both on shoulder and off the shoulder, for a sexier look.

3. Jet Black Cinched Bust Top With Lace Trim: The final top from Mimi's Curvy Corner which I took a closer look at was a black formal top with lace trimmings. This top is perfect to be worn in a more formal setting, perfect for instance for a dinner party or even a work related evening event. The lace detail at the neckline gives this top a classy and chic look. The cinched bust, along with the lace trim, continues to give the top sexy and dramatic aura. Again this one proved to be very comfortable to wear.

Overall I was rather impressed with the selection of tops I took a look at from Mimi's Curvy Corner. These particular ones showed that Mimi's offers a selection ideal for any time of the day, or occasion. Furthermore it is obvious that these tops were created with the plus size figure in mind as they fit very well and enhance all the right curves! So I would definitely recommend you give Mimi's Curvy Corner a closer look.

Demystifying Bras

Saturday, October 13, 2007

I have been away on business (and pleasure) for the past couple of weeks, and this week has just been filled with catching up both at work and at home. Exhausted is such an understatement right now! But finally I get the chance to sit back and do some interesting (and fun) type of catching up - reading up on all the missed posts on my feed readers. I've missed quite a bit I must say... there has been some excellent posts lately.

A particular one which caught my eye was Glen's post about 17 types of bras. I am very particular about my bras, and of course am aware that there are different types of bras. But having an actual list laid out in front of your is a completely different story! Bras for every occassion, personality, outfit... you name it, there's bound to be a special bra made for it!

Halloween Costumes from Torrid

Plus Size Halloween Costumes at TorridIf you are still looking around for a plus size Halloween costume, and perhaps you haven't been satisfied with what you've seen yet, then I suggest you give Torrid a little visit.

Although Torrid does not specialize in plus size Halloween costumes, this time of the year they always roll out a special collection of costumes, made to flatter the curvy figure. The costumes they offer are fun, stylish, and sexy... plus the fact that their selection consists of just eight excellent costumes, makes your choice oh so easier!

So think of curvy Halloween costume shopping at Torrid, as the place where you have the cream of the crop laid out in front out you. The costumes shortlisting has already been carried out, so all you have to do is pick your choice from the best option available. It's that easy.

Here is a run down of the eight fun costumes Torrid has prepared for plus size women this year:
