Plus Size Corsets: Top Picks for Valentine’s Day
If you want to make this coming Valentine’s Day one that you will remember for years to come, but are out of ideas, a quick visit to Hips and Curves will definitely get you creatives juices flowing. There are many ways how you can spice up the night, and make it a memorable one.
Prepare a nice romantic dinner for your partner. Some red wine and a touch of candle-light is obviously essential. Also essentials is some sexy plus size lingerie for you to wear when dessert time finally arrives! (Or perhaps you might choose to wear it all night!)
A sex piece of lingerie which should work wonders to give you a sexy look is a corset. Now just because you are a plus size woman does not mean you have to settle for anything boring and out-dated. Our friends at Hips and Curves offer a great selection of plus size corsets, which are hot, sexy and most of all, made for curves, so they will fit your figure better than the average lingerie would.
Here is an idea of what type of corsets you can find at Hips and Curves. There are my top picks for this Valentine’s Day:
Romantic Rhinestone Corset
This is a stretch velvet corset with a separating rhinestone zipper. Features form fitting lace up back and removable garters and comes with matching g-string.
Chinese Jacquard Corset
This gorgeous Asian-inspired curvy corset has lace-up back, light boning and arrives with a matching G-string.
Satin Jacquard Corset
This sexy plus size corset makes for some hot, steamy and delayed passion when your lover has to unlace the ribbons down the back of your corset! If you are in a hurry you can just undo the hook and eye front, but why make it easy?
Candy Cane Corset
This super cute, and yet very sexy, candy cane corset has a strapless, cleavage enhancing design. The medium strength boning gives enough support to create a smooth, shapley waistline but still lets you eat and breathe and enjoy your Valentine’s Day. Matching G-string included.

Plus Size Denim Trends for Winter 2009
It just may be the ultimate in comfort fabric. Who doesn’t dream of slipping on a pair of denim pants or a cut-off pair of denim shorts when they return home from work? Denim can take on so many forms from the ubiquitous, casual jean jacket worn on a weekend outing to a long denim skirt paired with boots for an afternoon affair. Just as fashion trends come and go, so do denim styles. Here are some of the most important denim trends for winter 2009.
There was a time when faded jeans were the rage but the tide has turned and dark denim has been rediscovered. The advantages of dark denim are considerable. While light, faded jeans are soft and fun to wear, dark jeans are less casual and can be worn for dressier occasions. Who doesn’t appreciate the slimming effect dark denim has on the legs and thighs? A pair of dark jeans in your closet means you don’t have to dress up to go out. Just slip on dark jeans and a stylish belt, add a sweater and some cool boots or heels and you have a figure flattering, “go anywhere” look. This is one trend you can’t live without.
Although dark denim is a force in fashion this fall, the distressed look will also be hot, particularly on college campuses. This is one time you can really appreciate holes in your clothing. In fact, you can find online videos showing how to tastefully destroy jeans to give them that “lived in” look. Holes are hot and rips are even better. Add a few stains and blotches and you have the recipe for fall fashion success.
Wide Leg Jeans
The slim, skinny jean has been the prevailing style for the past season. Although the slim jean will still have its place in 2009 fall and winter wardrobes, wide leg denim will make its appearance for those who are ready for a change. If you happen to be short or carry most of your weight below the waist, a wide leg style can visually add pounds. To offset this, wear wide leg jeans with higher heels to add height and avoid styles that have cuffs which can make legs look shorter. If this look isn’t for you, never fear, you can still wear skinny jeans this fall and look fashionable.
However you choose to wear them jeans and denim are a classic that will never go out of style. Have fun wearing the new denim trends this fall!

The Perfect Curvy Winter Coat For You
Winter coats are an expensive investment. You want quality, warmth and style. You also want your new coat to survive beyond trends for two or more seasons, so picking a classic style is best.
Choosing a winter coat with style can be daunting. You love the long coats, but you think you’re too short. You love the short perky little jackets, but you think … ahem … your hips are too wide. You love the wide and flowing three-quarter length coats, but you think you’re too short and too wide. What’s a girl to do? Well, there is a coat out there to fit every size and shape.
Firstly, you need to find a coat that doesn’t pucker or pull when you move your arms, has no uneven hems and is well-constructed. Sleeves should cover the wrist and you should not feel too confined or bulky. Considering the more slim-cut styles is best for comfort.
If you’re a little curvy, round and short, don’t hide your figure behind a loosely fitting coat. The best style is one that will accentuate your waist. A belted a-line coat will do this for you perfectly.
If you are petite, a short cropped jacket will give the illusion of height. Your small frame won’t be hidden behind a large coat. Shorter women can also wear maxi coats that come in at the waist. Straight maxis aren’t attractive on short women.
If you are tall a maxi coat is always flattering. Even women of medium height can wear a maxi. They’re warm and they never seem to go out of fashion.
The versatile and classic coat for all women of any shape and size is a simple three-quarter length coat that has a nice tailored finish at the waist. It gives any women a lean and narrow look. It’s especially suitable when worn with blue jeans.
Choose colors that are right for you. Black is basic and if you want your investment to last beyond the fashion trends, it may be the right color. Bright colors and over-the-top styling may not be good investments. You probably won’t like it next year.
Picking a winter coat is fun and there is a coat in the shops now to suit you and your budget.
