“Available in sizes 8 to 14.” If you usually meet this phrase on shopping sites with a resigned sigh, you’re not alone.
Whether you’ve always been curvy or the advent of motherhood brought about a change of shape, it’s not easy dressing a body that doesn’t fit the fashion industry’s mainstream offerings. But just because the usual S/M/L don’t work on you, it doesn’t mean you can’t still dress like a fierce fox. Especially online, a growing number of brands are offering awesome clothes in those larger sizes.
And it’s not just brands that are finding the intersection between plus size and style. Check out some of these stylin’ bloggers that are serving up inspiration on how to dress a curvy bod.
