Size Matters! Let’s face it, most fashion these days cater to smaller sized women and men. Most of the more popular fashion websites such as Revolve, H&M, and yes Shopbop do not have a variety of fashion for the more voluptuous individuals. It can be heart wrenching sometimes. Trying on clothes as a voluptuous woman has led me out of the dressing room in tears before, due to the fit and nonavailability of sizes above “10”. So this is where I get down and dirty… I am 46 yrs. old, 172 lbs., 5’4″, and am shaped like an adorable apple! I wear an XL in most clothing or Sz. 14 in pants and dresses, 16 in outer wear, 6 1/2 in shoes, Chest 36 DDD with broader shoulders than I would prefer but I have to have girth to hold those babies up in front! I have even researched Smart Lipo (more on that in a later post) to trim my figure down, but I would really like to trim naturally as much as possible at a slower pace before going forward with any other alternatives. Now knowing all those things about me, you can probably see how finding adorable fashion that does not look like a tent or moo moo, would be challenging. Which brings me to my solution…
When I visited my mom during Spring Break, I was looking for a Spring dress and my mom mentioned Belk’s. Growing up she and I always went there for great fashion at affordable prices, and I found this to still be true when I went this past Spring as well. So, why not look again for Fall? That’s exactly what I did and let me tell you, I found SO many great deals! Even the items that I ordered have gone down even more and all sizes are still available on my items with the exception of the Booties.
