Also, believe it or not, Ebay. The problem is alot of the clothing is from other countries and the sizing is inconsistant.

I am just LOVING this thread! PinUpGirlClothing is just AMAZING and I drool over their clothing. Another website I love to window shop at is www.theatomicboutique.com/

I've been overweight/obese for over 10 years. How can I complain if it takes me a year or two to lose it??

I love the way a below the knee pencil skirt and fitted shirt looks on a womans figure of any size. I love pin curls and bright red lipstick. When I get to my weight goal I plan to take a Pinup style photo shoot. emoticon

Oh the British gutter press just LOVES Charlotte as *gasp* her weight goes up and down quite a lot, also she dares *gasp* step out the house fairly frequently with no makeup and comfy clothes on, so she provides ample photo opportunities for the hacks to run horrible, horrible stories about how "fat" she is. Personally I think she's beautiful and a great example of how a normal, healthy girl should look and I don't think she looks half as good when she's at the skinnier end of her range.

Having seen Charlotte in person, I can tell you that she's not porky at all. It just goes to show how stick skinny most of these celebs really are.

PS - this is the dress I have from Vivienne of Hollaway, the lady wearing it here is Charlotte Church, who's a "curvier" celebrity and ideal to show off how gorgeous VH dresses are on non-size 0 gals with boobs 'n butts....

Oooh I DROOL over babygirl boutique but I haven't ordered anything yet! And Torrid also has some great stuff, though I tend to buy from ebay resellers rather than direct, as their international postage is really high.

Although they are not super "curvier gal" friendly, I also love Collectif Clothing from the UK, though some of their stuff's more "punk" than "pinup girl" they do have some great pieces:-

http://www.collectif.co.uk/shop/home.php
?cat=248

Not sure what the postage to the US is like, but they do have an astonishing sale on at the moment where stuff's stupid cheap and they do have bigger sizes tucked away amongst the sale stuff so it might be worth checking out.

(Nb - remember the difference between UK and US sizes if anyone is considering a purchase from Collectif - add approx 1-and-a-half sizes to your US size "number" to get the UK equivalent..... I'm a 12 or 14 in Torrid (US) sizes, I have 4 items from collectif and two are a UK 16, one is a UK 18 and (eek) one is a UK 20 (although the 20 was apparently mislabelled, phew!)

Another GREAT site for pinup dresses is Vivien of Holloway:-

http://www.vivienofholloway.com

I have her trademark halterneck polka dot dress in royal blue and white, and it's LUSH. Probably the most flattering thing I own, it's just a great cut for someone with hips 'n boobs. I notice she's doing a Hallowe'en pirate print now, oh, so tempted, lol... if you order something from this shop though, be VERY sure of your measurements, her clothes are cut with NO give, whatsoever....

And this is a FANTASTIC vintage lingerie site, "What Katie Did": my next "treat to self" purchase is DEFINITELY gonna be one of their repro 40s "bullet bras" for that "sweater girl" look methinks!

http://www.whatkatiedid.com/


Hope you enjoy these, Sho x

modcloth.com has some great dresses & shoes.
i bought a wonderful black vintage bathing suit at a vintage shop here in cleveland called flower child. the store is filled to the brim with vintage furniture, clothes, and household goods from the 50's-70's. i can't wait to fit back into the suit, as my husband has never seen me in it.

Have a happy, healthy day!

www.pinupgirlclothing.com... absolutely love them :) or www.kissmedeadly.co.uk www.fairygothmother.co.uk.. and the list goes on...

The power of submission lies not in the ability to kneel before another, to give over one's body or the wearing of a collar. The power of submission can be found only in the heart of one who gives her love to another freely, knowing what joy and pain will come from it.

Hi Gals-
Love this idea for a team! I've been a fan of pinups for ages!
There's also www.daddyos.com, but it's basically just stopstaring. I got a really cute StopStaring dress late last summer, and by the time I had an occasion to wear it, it didn't fit anymore.:(
I hope I'll be able to wear it to an art opening next month...

Hey guys & dolls! I'm always on the lookout for some new & fun clothing sites that are inspired by the retro pin-up looks! STOP STARING at www.stopstaringclothing.com is one of my favorites for a 'Future' purchase....
