Plus size clothes
Monday, July 07, 2008
Have you ever noticed that the designers for plus size clothes must not be overweight or have no taste in clothing? As a currently plus size woman I would not want to wear a top with sleeves so tight it makes my arms look like sausages in their casings, but neither do I feel comfortable in sleeve-less garments.
And at 43, I really do not want the "tent" or housecoat design either. And I love color, but neon horizontal strips are not slimming!
I was thrilled when the tunic came back last year, because some designers are absentminded, when they create shirts that stop just above or mid tummy area!?! (I'm trying to cover that area up!)
Most of my casual wardrobe is jeans and t-shirts. Sort of non-descript, boyish even. It isn't greatly attractive, but it doesn't billow, chafe, or advertise from 10 blocks I'm coming :)
