Thursday, September 25th, 2008 | plus size cothing with 1 Comment

Retro and 80’s look are making a come back all over the place, and especially at IGIGI. Check out their brand new separates with Dolman sleeves, color blocks and leatherette trims.

If you’re like me and love vibrant colors, you will love this new IGIGI collection. My favorite plus size top within this new selection has to be the Cindy Colorblock. It screams out glam with its fierce colors, Dolman sleeves. Perfectly made for appearing like a rock star at fall’s festivities. This top is also versatile to suit your personal style: it can be worn asymmetrical for an off-shoulder look. Very sexy.

Autumn is coming and it’s time to start vamping up your cool-weather wardrobe. And there’s no better place to do it than at IGIGI. Because at their online store, they have a ton of just-in Autumn styles that will make you feel perfectly happy to banish the sun and surf until next year.

My favorite piece in IGIGI’s new autumn collection? The Bridgette Mod Dress in black, grey, and red. The boat neckline is so flattering and pretty, and the soft vertical red stripe is wonderfully slimming.  Just too cool and pretty.

Tailored Chic and Sexy Plus Size Trends

Thursday, July 24th, 2008 | plus size cothing, plus size fashion with No Comments »

You’re going to love Torrid’s new collection of tailored, sexy, and oh-so-trendy items. Called An American Girl in Paris, this collection is just what it sounds: casual, sophisticated, and “what? This old thing?” sexy.

The biggest features of this collection are nautical themed patterns, fun accessories, and clean, elegant lines. It’s one of those collections where everything in it goes well with everything else - and all of it is gorgeous. My only problem is that I can’t decide between the little red bolero and the more understated denim one. I didn’t even know I liked boleros until I saw this collection! Maybe I should get them both… they’ll both look great with the Navy Blue and White Nautical Boho bag!

Go check it out. You don’t need to own a yacht to look, well… yacht-hot. (Sorry. Bad joke.)

Want to look your sexiest this summer in a gorgeous, and totally flattering, summer dress? IGIGI has just put up a collection of brand new, ultra trendy styles on their site. There’s the sexy, fun, and amazingly slimming Neapolitan dress (wear it with or without a shrug) that will make you look even tastier than an ice cream. Also take a look at some of the gorgeous new wrap dresses in both solids and fun floral prints. You can’t help but drool over these new styles… and have your man drool over you when you wear them. (Sorry, I had to say it!)

Also new at IGIGI is $8 bulk rate shipping. Which means, no matter how much you splurge, you pay one low fee for shipping. And I’m guessing you’ll want to stock up… I think I’ll do a little stocking up, myself.

Plus Size Fashion Shopping in Ireland

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008 | plus size cothing with No Comments »

It is not the first time I encounter an article in the press, where the differences between the a plus size shoppers’ experience in the US, and in Europe, are identified and highlighted. Often time, both women and men, say that it is by far easier to shop for plus size clothing in the US rather than in Europe.

I must say that although the situation in Europe is improving, I tend to agree to this opinion. An article I ran across today by Andrea Byrne on also concurs. Andrea’s article introduced us to Aimee Casey, originally from Washington, now living in Ireland. Aimee states that she encountered difficulties shopping for full figured fashion when in Ireland, which in the end motivated her to endeavour into opening her own plus size clothing store, in order to widen women’s choices in Ireland, and Europe.

"I really encourage women to show off their decolletage. You shouldn’t clutter it up, keep it bare. A lot of women insist on wearing small, delicate jewelery around their neck. The problem with that is there’s a lot of flesh there and small jewelery will only make it look bigger. It’s all about proportion. You should really look at your body in the mirror and spend time figuring out what works," says Aimee.

Aimee’s store, called Style Plus, besides being located at Celbridge, Co Kildare in Ireland, is also available online at It stocks sizes 16 up to 30, and carried styles for anyone aged 20 to 50!

It is great to see women taking their frustration at the plus size shopping situation in certain areas, and turning it round into something positive and of benefit to other plus size women in their area. Kudos Aimee! I wish you the best of luck with Style Plus.

Jessica Top from Fashion OverdoseNew items have been added to the edgy plus size clothing line available at Fashion Overdose. This store focuses on fem, street styled fashions which at first glance might not appeal to everyone.

It is short-sleeves and included velvet and lave trimmings at both the sleeve and neckline. Tiny details which make this top unique.
