Hello my curvy readers!
I love myself some T-shirt’s and always graphic tees; but the ones made for curvier women tend to be looser fitting and boxy ( don’t get me wrong those are great for lazy weekends and lounging around) but for a night out or for more figure flattering looks a slim fit is much better! Graphic tees can be worn with anything and is a sexy way to be comfortable and show your playful side! So hope you love my selections! Enjoy and before I go here’s a Style tip: have a rocker or punk aesthetic but hate you can’t find your style in the women’s sections? Almost every men’s section has a graphic slim fit tee with some sort of “edgy” or skull graphic ( like all dudes just want to ride motorcycles or join a band) tee and they are longer and so flattering on women! I shop the men’s section a lot because of my ample bosom and tummy..and no one ever guesses its for men because of the way I style things..
Until next time

Hello my fellow curvy readers,
Its that time again for temperatures to reach sweltering and to reach for any icy glass of anything..lol It’s Summer and with it the call of beach days, parties and festivals. What better way to ring in another Summer then with new swimwear? Every year we see straight size girls get all the new colors, cuts and added frills to their swimsuits, but what about the us? We need options too right? That’s why when I came across a sexy one piece swimsuit with unique cut outs I decided I had to share this cool new cut!
I love that these cut outs are done tastefully so that it doesn’t look tawdry or tacky and in very flattering places on the body. I was very happy to see it wasn’t only done in just black swimsuits but various colors and patterns as well. This one piece is perfect with a pair of cut off shorts thrown over or with a billowy kimono shawl; the looks are undress and all will give you just the right amount of sexy..I chose four of my faves and all are under $100 because swimwear shouldn’t be so expensive you can’t have fun and experiment with different styles like other article of clothing. Let us know what you think of this one piece! I know I’ll be getting one! Enjoy!
One piece swimsuits with cut outs
Hello my lovely curvy readers,
I was flipping through the pages of another glossy magazine when I came across a new trend for Spring; wear rainbow stripes with a candy colored twist. I loved all the beautiful pops of delicious colors that reminded me of those rainbow mints you would see in your grand mother’s candy bowl or a doctors offices back in the nineties when you were a kid.. What I didn’t see was any suggestions for plus sized or curvy women and that bothered me a lot! We can rock stripes just as well as any straight sized woman! There is a huge myth going around that curvy girls can’t wear stripes as it makes us look bigger..I wear stripes all the time and I’m a size 16 and I don’t look any bigger..So get out your wallets take our guide and go get some yummy rainbow stripes! I have chosen everything under $40!
This will be our last fashion week post since all major fashion week shows are now over. We hope you enjoyed the ride. Our last show is Torrid, the little sister of Hot Topic catered to plus size 10-32.
The two women designers behind the brand relaunch;debuted a collection ranging from bohemian staples to rocker style jackets that made me even see a standard size girl wearing one as I exited the show.
The jackets were the star of the show as they presented moto and denim jackets with studs, embroidery and even hand painted bunnies! I don’t know how many will actually make it into production but I know I will be adding any they produce into my wardrobe!
There was also an artful play on bohemian with its over flowing volume that can make curvy girls look unflattering; but Torrid played with a sexier silhouette that featured slim fitted sleeves and cinched waist to really accent the figure instead of masking it. The flowy kimono dusters added a bohemian rocker aesthetic and I am here for that! Torrid also brung back it’s amazing corsets that we’re the reason why I started shopping there in the first place! They were sexy, vampy and so flattering!
We also liked the plus size model search winners walking the runway. We saw one bright star and we know we will be seeing her again. The gift bag was an icing on the cake which featured make up pallets from NYX cosmetics, skull bath bomb,torrid tee and perfume, make up bag and etc!
Check out the runway round up on our youtube page today and more pictures on our instagram page.
Happy Hump Day,
I have to shed light on this most hated Summer staple when it comes to plus sizes; the cover up. I mean a cover up is supposed to keep you dry, cool and be able to dress up or down but all I have ever seen in plus size version are moo moos, trapeze styles and ugly ill fitting caftans! What’s a curvy girl to do? We have hot dates and Chic places to go after the beach too!
So I scoured the internet to not only find flattering caftans but sexy and Chic cover up dresses and even a cute skirt! So go forth my curvy lovelies; wear that oversized straw hat, Jackie O sunglasses and meet your hot date after you have some fun at the beach ( hopefully rocking some of my choices!)
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!
