Plus Size Clothing

American Idol's Lakisha also chooses IGIGI

Earlier this week we reported to you that in one of here performances, talented and curvy Lakisha Jones was wearing a plus size red top from Missphit. It seems that IGIGI is also in Lakisha’s favorites list, as both Ms.Toi and Glen have reported!

During last Tuesday’s show Lakisha gave an exceptional rendition of Billie Holiday’s song ‘God Bless the Child’. For this memorable occasion Lakisha chose the very chic Opulent Platinum Satin Gown.

Rising Star Jahqoi Hits the Small Screen

2007 is turning out to be a very busy and successful year for plus size fashion designer Anna Nicole, who together with her mother Dorez, has founded the trend setting plus size clothing line Jahqoi.

Anna Nicole has been working hard to create extremely stylish, colorful and figure flattering new designs for Jahqoi, most of which can in fact already be seen on their brand new website. The hard work has indeed been paying off as Jahqoi has landed a couple of interviews with leading TV stations.

In fact last Tuesday, 13th March Anna Nicole was interviewed by NBC News. After the interview was aired in Los Angeles, it was also aired in other cities around the Unites States. Talk about a big time TV appearance for plus size fashion designer!

A couple of weeks ago Anna Nicole and Jahqoi were also featured in another TV interview with KTLA, the premiere Southern California CW station. In the interview with Gayle Anderson, Anna Nicole showcases some beautiful pieces from her collection. You can actually watch this interview online, as it’s saved in KTLA’s archives. Just visit this link, and then look for the segment “Jahqoi, Plus Size Clothes” and you’ll be able to view it.

Well done Anna Nicole! The attention you are receiving is very well deserved.

Sydney's Closet Walk the Red Carpet

Curvy fashion is increasingly being showcased in the media, and I was glad to see that two elegant evening gown from Sydney’s Closet appeared on the red carpet when the TODAY Show showcased formal dresses for special nights in the lives of plus size women.

This segment proved that even if you’re not up for any Academy Award you can still have your own personal red carpet moment.

“We threw Oscar a curve,’’ Catherine Schuller, stylist to the stars, told TODAY show anchor Natalie Morales when the segment aired on the eve of the 79th Academy Awards.

Catherine showcased two dresses from Sydney’s Closet: “Sea Goddess”, a Sydney’s Closet Exclusive design in red satin, and “Moulin Rouge”, a dramatic strapless evening gown in crimson with high-low hem and lace up back.

I think it is very positive that plus size fashion is being given such prominent exposure on TV, especially on such special and popular times, as that of the Academy Awards.

Swimwear Separates Made Easy

Although I think I’m shaped quite proportionately… according to some magazine’s guide to finding your shape, I am an inverted triangle, which basically means by top part is bigger than my bottom area. In fact I do have a broad back, and am quite big in the bust area. In comparison I (so far) have narrower thighs, hips and slim legs. This means that often I end up buying items for the top part of my body, a size bigger than what I buy for my bottom area. I’m sure this will sound very, very familiar to many women all over the world. A lot of women I know have a multi-sized body.

This isn’t really a problem when buying separate items; however it becomes a bit of a pain when buying items which usually come in pairs like suits, swimwear separates (e.g. bikinis and tankinis) and also dresses for that matter… but that’s a whole other blog post!

With items like suits and swimwear, it would be ideal if all stores sold these items separately. That way women can mix and match sizes for tops and bottoms to create their perfect piece. This custom is now becoming a little more common practice for items like suits, but for things like swimwear I often find that bikinis and tankinis are still matched up: i.e. having one, same sized top and bottom, bundled together to make one item.

Thankfully though, many stores are breaking away from that custom as well. One of those stores is the plus size swimwear specialty store – they have now in fact started selling separates. I think this is a great initiative, and I truly hope keep up this custom and also hope that other stores will follow suit! Being more flexible with how one lets customers buy items will make for a much more pleasant plus size shopping experience!
