Plus Size Sparkle Swim Dress

SparkleSwimDress.jpg If you've been invited to a poolside event, and you need a suit that's more 'social occassion' than 'lap swimming', then fear not... This plus size Sparkle Swim Dress iconcould be just the thing. This suit is a step up from your typical beachwear, without being too flashy. The silvertone flecks add just a touch of sparkle while the halter neckline and basic black keep it chic and sophisticated. Be sure to check out the tie detail at the back. Available in sizes 14 - 26 for $99.50 USD.

Plus Size Bold Floral Print Top at Lane Bryant

LaneBryantBoldFloralTop.jpg

Yesterday, I went to Lane Bryant and bought one of these Bold Floral Tops. icon I am not generally in love with polyester, but this one is the cool, silky variety, not the hot, sticky variety. Anyway, the smocking on the sleeve and hem are really subtle and do not add a ton of ruffles and bulk. The neckline is not too low, and the waist area is not too clingy. An overall nice easy fit in a fun, bright fabric that is very 'in' this season. Available in sizes 14/16 - 26/28 for $44.50 USD.

Check out this Paloma Belted Dress iconby Igigi. The structured look of pleats and panels are softened by princess shaping and a dramatic neckline. Love it with the black strappy shoes, but it would also be great with colorful accessories that pop. Available in sizes 12 - 30, for $128.00 USD.

Product Review - Igigi Celine Dress

IgigiCelineDress.jpg

Here's another item that I recently got from Igigi.com, the Celine Dress icon. The rich purple fabric is wonderfully stretchy and swingy, making this a comfortable, wearable dress. It also has a chic retro vibe, especially the tie detail. The under bust seam creates a fitted bodice that contrasts nicely with the flared skirt. It's so nice to own an Igigi dress, because they're designed for plus size figures. The fit is so much better than scaled up versions of regular sizes. If you like it, you can get one right now on sale for $74 USD.

Product Review - Igigi Nora Pencil Skirt

IgigiNoraPencilSkirt.jpg

I recently got one of these gorgeous Nora Pencil Skirts icon from Igigi.com. Pencil skirts can be tricky for the plus size figure, but the princess seams on this skirt create a curve skimming silhouette, without pulling or gaps. The front slit is a nice detail that creates a bit of visual interest. As of now, this skirt is on sale for $52 USD and is available in sizes 14-30.

Monthly Round-Up - March 2009

In March, I concentrated on the warmer weather ahead and showcased a lot of short sleeved tops and some spring dresses. I also took a field trip to a local plus size boutique, and to Belk and Nordstrom to scope out the trends.
