Can I just say that I am a sucker for empire waists? This look works great for me and if you haven't tried one yourself, maybe it's time for a little experiment. This adorable Roberta Top
from B&Lu has an ultra cute neckline and is available in sizes up to 3X. I'm also a sucker for 'made in the USA' and under $40.

We are almost speachless at our good fortune in finding eShakti. Imagine clothes custom made to your measurements or simply adjusted to suit your body type or taste! Custom changes max out at $10 per garment, so no matter how many changes you request, the tiny $10 fee will cover them all. You can enter complete custom body measurements, change the hem length, sleeve length, sleeve style, neckline style and more. Check out the
collection and play around with some of the style options. Simply amazing and totally refreshing, when you're used to having to settle for meager selection and marginal fit. We will definitely be placing an order here shortly. We'll post an update about our experience. Off to do a happy dance now!

We are so
going to get one of these
Valmont Lace Trim Camisoles
from Just My Size. Summertime is a challenge for ladies of the 'Plus Size' persuasion, because it's not usually possible to go without a bra, or risk one of those flimsy little built in 'shelf' bras. This cami has a full, stretch foam cup, underwire bra built in; perfect for keeping cool on those sunny summer days, without sporting those unsightly bra straps. We're off to order one right now!

Couture from plus size designer Anna Scholz's 2008 Spring collection, including this alluring little
black dress and bolero
is available at Neiman Marcus online. We personally prefer the dress sans bolero. That said, it's probably best to have it, just in case of over-zealous air conditioning.

All of this talk about special occasion dresses has got us thinking about bras. If you're a 'plus size' then undoubtedly, bra shopping poses a special challenge for you, especially where special occasion bras are concerned. We searched high and low, and found this
Fantasie Smoothing Strapless Bra
at Bare Necessities.
This particular bra is available in sizes 30DD to 42D, while the site offers bras up to 56H. (You can even shop by size, avoiding the heartache of seeing a bra that you adore
only to find out that it doesn't come in your size. Brilliant!)
The shaped, underwire cups of this bra are lined for shape and support, so you'll get the smooth and sleek silhouette that you desire without added bulk. 3 row, 3 column hook closures and boning provide stability. This bra also converts to halter or criss-cross for additional flexibility.
