Hawaiian Plus Size Line Launched

plus size Hawaiian shirtWave Shoppe Hawaiian Shirts has been on a quest to produce fashionable Hawaiian shirts that slenderize the large and lovely woman, and their goal has finally been achieved.

Wave Shoppe’s quest started around a year ago when they received several requests from women who were looking for Hawaiian themes shirts to fit their fuller figure. They received several comments like “I really love the shirts on your website but I need a larger size,” or “I am going to a party and can’t find a shirt to fit me anywhere”. After several such phone calls and emails were received, Charles and Peggy at Wave Shoppe decided to move forward and offer shirts for plus sized women.

First they started working on finding a pattern maker that had experience in making plus size Hawaiian shirts for women.  After several lengthy meetings and sifting through test patterns, the perfect combination was chosen and samples were sewn up.

At this time Charles and Peggy had several women who knew they were going to make plus size shirts so they stayed in contact with them and actually sent them the samples created to try out send feedback on. So Wave Shopped sent off their newly created plus size samples to different sized women, who in turn were asked to rate the shirts on comfort and fit, besides other thinks. Charles and Peggy adjusted the selected patterns based on the suggestions received and thanks to the efforts and ideas of the selected women changes to the patterns were incorporated.

The next step was to find the fabrics to make the shirts. They wanted fabrics that were colorful, snappy and fresh. Most of all they wanted fabrics that would breathe well, feel comfortable and make future customers look fashionable.

After all the hard work, the goal was finally achieved! Wave Shoppe today are very excited and proud to announce the addition of their new plus size line of Hawaiian shirts. Their new shirts are colorful, fun and trendy. Do check then out at Wave Shoppe.

Charles and Peggy’s story is a wonderful example of online stores listening to customer suggestions and opening up their shop and business to accommodate a wider audience. This I am sure will definitely be appreciated by their potential plus size customers. This story should be an encouraging example to other clothing stores who might be receiving queries from potential customers to widen their selection. Listen to your potential customers!

New Holiday Party Dresses at Sydney's Closet

Sheer Delight - plus size dressSydney’s Closet has long been a favorite among plus size women, and young girls especially, looking for formal and party dresses for those special occasions. So no wonder it is a favorite among these special times when most ladies are looking for that great dress to wear at a Christmas party of some sort.

Only recently, Sydney’s Closet have started their own collection of dresses, which of course they are offering online at their online store. Last week in fact, they have added three new additions for their collection, new dresses which are perfect party dresses to choose to wear during the holiday season. Here is a rundown of what these three new dresses are all about…

My favorite out of the new three dresses is the one picture here, which is aptly named Sheer Delight. It is an A-line dress featuring charmeuse satin and netting fabric. Although it is picture here as being a strapless dress, option spaghetti straps are included with the dress, which is great as this satisfies your tastes whether you prefer to wear a strapless dress or not. The ruched bodice and empire waistline flatters the curvy figure, whilst the ribbon embellishment on the skirt is simply gorgeous. A matching shawl is very conveniently included with the dress. Perfecto!

My second favorite is the bold Odyssey dress, which again comes in a figure flattering empire waistline. It features charmeuse satin fabric and the spaghetti straps can be adjusted to create your perfect fit. This dress features a tea length skirt, which I have to say I love. I am a person who loves wearing great shoes, and I have to admit I love showing off my ankles, so a tea length dress is a perfect compromise between a short skirted or long dress. To top it off, the Odyssey ships with a matching 3/4 length shrug. Hey presto, your outfit is complete.

The last addition introduced by Sydney’s Closet last week is the beautiful cocktail dress named the Galaxy. This sexy dress features hand-beaded lace and charmeuse satin fabric. A feature which earns a lot of dress points with me is the sewn in bra. When the bra cups are sewn in a dress the correct way it add such comfort to a dress! A matching beaded 3/4 sleeved jackets ships along with this lovely dress.

Do visit Sydney’s Closet to take a closer look at the dresses mentioned above, and also check out the wide variety of special occasion plus size dresses offered.

25% Off Betsey Johnson Handbags

Betsey Johnson HandbagMy father is no fashion guru; however he does have a sense of style to himself. In fact he always told me that he thought a woman all dress up, to him, does not look complete unless she was also wearing a matching handbag! Although I would definitely argue with him, that topping an outfit off with the right pair of shoes has much higher priority than topping off an outfit off with a handbag, he definitely has a point!

Obviously, handbags can be very handy, helping a girl carry around all the essentials! Though they can also make or break an outfit. Let’s imagine you are wearing a simple black dress that does not say much on it’s own, but, which could be turned around into a stunning outfit by carrying along a stylish gold handbag and wearing matching accessories.

So it’s good to know that currently Torrid is have a very good, and very rare, sale on their collection of stylish and funky Betsey Johnson handbags. The selection of handbags available can be paired up with outfits for both the day and night, and are exactly the type of handbags to have at hand when you want to turn a simple outfit into a stunning winner.

This collection of handbags is currently available at a 25% discount, and is running until this Sunday, 18th November.
