Can Fuller Figures Wear Prints?

When reading style guides and related articles targeted to full-figured women I often come across this tip: Stay away from prints. Although sometimes it is true that certain prints can be very unflattering, other print are done right and actually enhance a plus size woman’s figure and her curves.

So today I’d like to re-word this ever-prominent ‘tip’ to: Choose only print which are done right! Make sure that any clothing with print work with your curves to flatter your figure.

If you look around through plus size specialist stores, you’ll find a multitude of clothing in prints which are made for curves! Take a look for instance, at the latest collection from Kiyonna. You will find that this is dominated with prints that are combined to perfection with clean lines, smart pin-tucks and 3/4 length sleeves, which keep such styles universally figure flattering! Kiyonna’s classic wrap silhouette dress is given a modern update in a bold giraffe print jersey (see picture). A richly detailed paisley print offers just the right amount of accent to Kiyonna’s deep brown kimono dress as well.

Kiyonna have managed to create a fusion of prints and stunning silhouettes with an end result of utter sophistication and effortless, chic and season-less style.

My Latest Buy: Pink Plus Size Cami

I went around the high street shops this morning. It’s a beautiful day here today, although it is quite windy, the sun is shining and therefore it feels divine outside. So I thought it was a perfect day for some high street strolling and window shopping. I was also long overdue with buying my boyfriend an anniversary present! So after finally buying my boyfriend a fantastic present (well I thought so anyways!) I decided to visit my favorite plus size clothing store in Malta, Evans. I love the fashion these guys provide. They’re the only store in Malta, in my humble opinion, that offer full figured women real stylish options, and they do not carry anything that would remotely make you look like a tent!

Since Evans online only ships to the UK (big sad face), I often visit the shop down the street to see what new stuff they have. Although I must day the selection online is much wider than what is available at the store here, it’s a very good selection still, and today I found a jem! I bought their Pink Color Block Cami, which at £25.00 was real good buy. I loved the colors and pattern of this top as soon as I saw it: it’s very vibrant and yet not over done. The V-neck is very sexy, enhances the bosom area, without showing off too much. The tie back detail ensures that your waist is hugged as it should be, shaping you up and not covering the curves. The longer styled top also adds height, which is always a plus!

Very glad I added this new piece to my wardrobe, it will be a great summer item for sure!

So take a closer look at the Rodeo Drive dress today.

In my opinion it’s a gorgeous dress, perfect for spring and summer. Plus, this dress also include side pockets, very hand if you don’t like carrying your handbag around.

Must Have Plus Size Spring Tops and Trends

There are some interesting and quite contrasting (in my opinion) trends coming out where plus size tops are concerned. Here are the must has looks this spring:

1. Fresh print and pastels: Spring is the time for things fresh and new. So this is the perfect season for us, and our wardrobes, to bloom with pastel and vibrant colors. Fresh prints are indeed a must might I add! Take a look at this perfect example for Torrid, their aqua and black floral print ruched waist top.

2. Feminine and tailored: This trend, which I love as much as the previous one, is in definite contrast to the look I have just described. However it is still, in it’s own different way, very striking and vibrant. This next trend for plus size tops this spring includes a touch of femininity, coupled with a tailored style that is sure to fit and flatter every shape. Take a look at Torrid’s white and black dot belted short sleeve top to get a glimpse of the must have style I’m referring to.

So if you want to have a complete look this spring, make sure to stock up on the above mentioned styles and trend. Remember, on the one hand be very girly with pastel colors and fresh print. On the other hand, be strong yet still feminine with a tailored shirt.

More T-Shirt Options for Plus Size Women

I came across this interesting press release today, which was released by, an online store which I had never heard about before. evisionArts have been providing print on demand t-shirts, and other accessories, online since 2001. So what was so special about this news? Well evisionArts have just added women’s plus sizes to their range of t-shirts. Well done evisionArts, I am always pleased to hear about stores widening their offering, and becoming more curvy friendly.

So I visited evisionArts and I must say I will definitely be back to purchase some of the items, as I have found a couple which are both cute and hilarious!

I’m sure my boyfriend will appreciate me wearing this ‘I have mood swings’ t-shirt, it would serve as a great warning for the day. And how about the chocolate collection of prints? I especially love the first one… “Shut up and give me CHOCOLATE“. I couldn’t have said it better myself!

I applaud evisionArts for adding plus sizes to their range! Kudos!
