SHOPPING PLUS-SIZEFriday, January 30, 2015
Well I've been plus-size for awhile now, and sometimes it's daunting to find cute clothes for my size. Even with all the recent awareness in the last few years surrounding "Fashion For All", there still seems to be a deficit in the variety of plus-size clothing. Before I was plus-size I could walk into any store and find something...now I do most of my shopping online. This is non-ideal for someone like me, who likes to try on clothes and see how they fit before purchasing them...but alas the Fashion Industry (as a whole) has yet to embrace the fact that plus-size women like to shop in stores too. Don't get me wrong, there are a few stores & boutiques that carry plus-size fashions, but I find myself still doing the majority of my shopping... online.
Online isn't all bad, and I've discovered some really great clothing companies online by following fellow plus-size fashion bloggers and plus-size models. Two ladies in particular that I follow are based here in Houston, Antoinette Cheek and Tameka Wells! Following their blogs and Instagram accounts, I've discovered a bunch of new spots to shop for clothes. So I've decided to create a list of all the places I visit to shop for plus-size clothes in the hopes that it will help out a fellow curvy girl, who is also looking for options!
