- Is there such a thing as “Plus Size Diva on a Dime?” - March 27, 2014
As we “curvatious” ladies already know, shopping for reasonably priced clothing is a true hardship! For a few extra inches of fabric do we really need to be shelling out TWICE the price?????
Reasonably speaking “Plus Size” is considered a 14, but these days it seems to have shifted to a size 10, in what twilight zone did a 10 become “Plus Size”?, so our hunt for trendy and sophisticated styles has now become even harder… but there is hope ladies!!!
Forever 21 Plus has some trendy styles for a comfortable price tag, although in my opinion, the styles are for the younger girl. Rickie’s and Reitman’s also have a nice trendy selection and offer classic “working women’s” pieces. At full price it can be daunting, but both shops have great sales which makes shopping more affordable, of course Addition Elle, Penningtons and Laura are top contenders but at a higher price tag. A new shop in town called J. Mackenzie fashion has just opened in the Peg which caters to curvy women in a smaller scale boutique, definitely worth checking out. My absolute FAV is Kiyonna clothing, an online shop with such style and understanding of how to accentuate the curviest of figures! This company has amazing styles and a wide range of sizing from a 10 to a 30 plus. www.kiyonnaclothing.com. Offering everything from tops and pant separates to beautiful dresses. A fabulous company to check out, items are on the pricier end with high quality in tow.
Online options are abundant and stunning, but we take the risk of ordering an ill fit, frustrating I know but the options are plentiful.
Can we shop Diva on a Dime? Absolutely!!! Does it take some patience and the almighty bargain hunt? Yes! In reality we will have to pay more for a fit and style that hugs our curves in all the right places, and this may cost us a pretty penny but I am sure like all other women out there, you get what you pay for.
