Be it to wear for work (if you work in a relaxed type of environment), whether you are off shopping with your girls, or whether you just feel like going for a stroll down the street, casual wear is essential. So today I wanted to have a look at what I think are the Top 10 Casual Plus Size Clothing Stores online, to help women and give them some options for where to shop.

1. Alight – When you talk about casual plus size clothing, if you are more of less familiar with the leading plus size speciality stores online, then definitely Alight will be the first store you will think of. Alight offers a lot more then casual wear, in fact I like to call Alight the online mall for plus size shopping. It offers a wide range of styles, and carries a lot of different designers, which is what sets it apart. The vast choice of casual wear you can browse through here is what makes Alight the first go to place for findnig casual plus size clothing online.

2. Figuresque – A store which not everyone might be familiar with, but which I truly encourage every full figured woman to visit. Figuresque is quite a new store to hit the online scene, though do not be put off by this. They offer a vast selection of very stylish casual wear, and most of all their options are truly affordable. This is what sets Figuresque apart from the competition. If you’re looking for a bargain, head on their way!

3. Avenue – A store which I am sure a lot of curvy women will be familiar with, Avenue again is one of the first go to places to go for when shopping online for curvy clothing. They offers a great selection of casual fashions, which are also easy on the budget. Avenue is always adding on new, contemporary styles to make sure the latest trends are available, so again this is one to check out.

4. OneStopPlus – Another store which carries a large range of clothing, as well as accessories. However the casual clothing options offered at OneStopPlus are endless and definitely not to miss. They carry anything from tops, to skirts, to denim and dresses.

5. Torrid – A name synonymous with plus size clothing online, Torrid has become a favorite with many women and for good reasion. They offer a great selection of casual wear, with trendy new designs added on a regular basis. Various items can be found at Torrid including a great selection of casual tops, skirts, dresses and denim. A curvy girl will definitely satisfy her casual wear needs at Torrid.

6. SWAK Designs – Another must visit store when you are looking for casual wear. SWAK Designs carry a great range of tops, skirts, dresses, pants and denim at affordable prices. Most of their items are available up to a size 6X (which would be approximately size 30/32), and include individual item size charts, which makes finding your size for a particular items a breeze.

8. Fashion Bug – A store which might appeal more to a younger plus size woman, Fashion Bug provides the full figured woman a lot of options when it comes to casual wear. Again here you can find items ranging from skirts, to tops, to dresses.

9. Yours Clothing – An online store based in the UK, but which ships around the world, Yours carries one of the biggest collections of casual plus size apparel you can find online andhas become one of my favorites! Best of all their prices are truly affordable, and they hold sales and apply price reductions very often, which makes shopping here both fun and very easy on your budget. This is definitely a must visit, and I encourage plus size women outside of the UK not to get discourage from shopping here, as shipping fees are very reasonable and the vast selection of items available definitely make it worth shopping here.

10. Old Navy – I know some plus size women frown upon Old Navy (and with reason) because they reserve their plus size collection just for their online sale, but the stylish and vast selection they do offer online meant they had to be included in this list. Whatever everyone says I do think Old Navy offer a nice selection of casual plus size clothing, to suit everyone’s tastes and budgets.

So there you have it! What do you think? Should any particular store not be in the list? Do you think I missed listing down a store which you absolutely cannot live without? Comment below, and let me know. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Julianna Cowl Neck Dress by Kiyonna

Julianna Plus Size Dress by Kiyonna

Last week Kiyonna unveiled a gorgeous new dress which they have named the Julianna Dress. This dress is not just another short sleeved cowl neck dress! The sleeves are uniquely set-in which give this dress a chic and Grecian feel to it. The soigné details and ruching at the side make this dress super flattering. Any dress that include ruching somewhere at the waist is a winner for me, because ruching truly disguises your tummy, and flatters any figure. This dress follows the Grecian style of recent dresses Kiyonna have unveiled which are equally gorgeous such as the Alexandra Gathered Dress and the Celine Chiffon Maxi Dress.

The Julianna dress comes in three different colors: blue, rich purple and black. Definitely a dress that will leave a lasting impression, one to have a closer look at if you’re searching for a special dress for a special occasion.

Julianna Plus Size Dress by Kiyonna

This dress is available in sizes 0X (10/12) to 5X (30/32) and is priced at only $98! It starts shipping tomorrow 25th May, 2010.

Kiyonna’s Saturday Front Tie Bellini: A Review

Recently I have the pleasure of trying on one of Kiyonna’s best sellers: the Saturday Front Tie Bellini. The great people at Kiyonna sent over a very well presented package to me, and I must say once I tried on the Bellini I knew why this item is one of their best sellers… it is truly flattering. I honestly was not expecting being so excited about a ‘cardigan’ type garment, but this thing truly rocks. I must get it in all colors… but I digress.

Back to the details. The Saturday Front Tie Bellini is made of a lightweight fabric, which is a mixture of Rayon and Spandex, which is very silky and soft to the touch. The font-tie site exactly below the bust-line, helping to create a very figure flattering look.

Besides the Bellini feeling very nice to the touch, it pretty much goes with everything, which is another definite plus. If you need an item in your closet to help you with layering, this is definitely one item to consider as it is very versatile. It comes in four different colors, including sage, black and purple, however the one I tried on is grey. I tried on the Bellini with a skirt, cropped jeans and jeggings… and with all 3 items I think it looked great. I received a couple of compliments when I first wore this, so definitely a winner in my books.

Check out some photos below, of me wearing the Bellini. Also watch out for a video coming up soon as well, showing you the actual Bellini!

Thanks Kiyonna… this is definitely a keeper, and I am very tempted to get in other colors!

With cropped jeans...
