    Think You Can’t Wear a Bubble Dress? Think Again!

    Bubble dresses. You know the ones. They look super cute on those girls with the approximate size and shape of a stick, and terrible on anybody with a pair of, you know… hips. You like to follow trends, but… why would you torture yourself by putting on a dress with a hemline that only puffs everything out and clings in all the wrong places?

    I just visited IGIGI, and lo and behold… they actually make bubble dresses that flatter women with a curvier shape!  Just in at the website is a selection of very trendy (by still very flattering) bubble-hemmed dresses. My favorite? The jewel-toned green jade bubble dress. So pretty. So feminine. So in my shopping cart.

    Finally! Just because I’m not Miss Twiggy doesn’t mean I can’t follow this trend.

    Brand New Delta Burke Curvy Swimwear

    Delta Burke knows about having a plus sized body. And her swimsuits are some of the most flattering on the market… a Delta Burke is always a safe bet. At SwimsuitsForAll, they have a great combination of Delta Burke swimsuits in stock: from priced-to-steal clearance suits to brand new, just-arrived styles.

    For those of you with a sexy, defined waist, you must look at the Freestyle One Piece with the cute waist detailing. Not sure if I have the waist for it myself, but I’m drooling over it anyway.

    For my body (sticking to the safari/ethnic trend I mentioned the other day) I like the Safari One Piece Twist Front Swimdress. Just gorgeous.

    Thanks, Delta!

    If you’re like me, you probably shop at Torrid all the time. They’ve got one of the best collections of plus size women’s fashion on the net… or anywhere else. And now they’re introducing beautiful, figure flattering wedding gowns perfectly suited to the plus size shape. While their new selection of plus size wedding gowns isn’t the biggest you’ve ever seen, each gown is beautifully flattering and perfectly suited to curvier shapes.
