Hello my curvy goddesses! Summer can be the hardest times for curvy girls when it comes to summer wear and swimwear. So I will spend the next couple of posts telling you where to get the best Summer gear for the curvy girl! My first post will be on the Maxi Dress. I looove a good maxi dress; it hugs our curves and makes short girls look longer when we wear chunky flip flops or wedges with them! So here are my picks for the best maxi dresses and don’t worry they are all budget friendly as well.
This dress by Tahari Woman is just so chic! its flattering on any curvy size!

The hottest new trend is wearing your pajama pants outside in the streets. But hold on a sec it’s not like the way you think (you know chick standing in line in Starbucks wearing fuzzy bear slippers and sloppy ill-fitting pj bottoms with tacky letters going down the side!)it’s more about choosing pj pants that look more like lounge wear. The kinds that are made from butter soft cotton or silk. The pants have to have a nice fit but also be loose at the bottom. Your tops should be structured and never a tee or you’ll look like said girl I just mentioned. You want to look put together like the pj pants are regular pants. These bottoms are a nice cool option for the hot Summer this year and look good on everyone! I wear mine with a silk beaded top and a straw fedora. (I love <3 the bottoms from Soma Intimates!) So I put together some outfits so Curvy girls can have some fun with this trend! Don't forget to add jewelry! Statement necklaces and rings are still a must have! Also try carrying a clutch in the day. Enjoy 🙂
Lace has been showing up all over the runways all season long; but by far my favorite is the black lace trend!! I am such a goth punk chick so I adore black lace. This look is so sexy on a curvier figure so now’s the time to show what you are working with! So I have created looks you can try for yourself!
Why should all our skinny girlfriends have all the fun when it comes to Season trends?! I say curvy girls can get into fashion and trends just as much! I have put together outfits from Spring’s latest trends; neon colors, floral prints and tribal just for us Curvy girls! So please go out and buy them or something similar! Our skinny girlfriends can still borrow the accessories! Trust me they will want too.
With all the dizzing floral patterns and bright neon colors on all things Spring; it could be a bit daunting for those of us with curvier bodies so I have compiled a collection of sweet floral dresses that will look flattering on the beautiful curvy body! Enjoy this polyvore set! I love these dresses and I threw in some amazing priced heels to match them all!

I know its very hard to find cute and chic costumes when you have more meat on your bones. Either costumes are too small and short or just unflattering and tacky. Luckily I’m here to tell you you have two options; you can either use my tips to make a costume out of what you already have in your closet or if you want something sexy you can go with www.torrid.com and I’ll also include pictures of my favorite costumes.
Take a long sleeve peasant top, long circle skirt and tie a bandanna around your head. Accessorize with large hoops, bangles and lots of necklaces.

Ok so I know you’ve seen animal prints everywhere. They have been on every runway for the past 3 years. a lot of us chunky girls get scared of animals prints because we think it will make us look chunkier. Well i am here to tell you not to be afraid! When you wear an animal print (whether its zebra, leopard, cheetah or lizard) be sure to wear solids and make the animal print be a focal piece; for example a black pencil skirt with an animal print top or just the shoe or handbag. I have included some pics to show you animal print done right!

strapless tiger and leopard top with bow $30.99 www.plussizefix.com
This top is super sexy yet chic! The bow around the waist gives this top the perfect accent. Pair it with a black pencil skirt and pumps or fitted jeans.
I have decided to add a new category to our blog! Yay us! We have decided that there is no love for the with um..more to love! I am one of them and should be ashamed (believe me I am) that I haven’t devoted blogging to how to be sexy when you are not a size 6. I used the word ‘curvy’ because I can’t stand the term “plus size”! voluptuous (though it describes me exactly) doesn’t describe every girl who isn’t a size 6. There are a lot of girls who have small busts but are still curvier. I chose the term curvy because a lot of us are shapely because of the extra fluff! So my Curvy Chic blog entries will be dedicated to sizes 12-20. I am a size 16 and I have a lot of curves so I want to show you how to use the trends that ‘skinny girls’ only get to wear.
