Calling all *Curvacious* women!!

Recommended Posts

Estella1007, I couldn't agree more! I've thought the same many, many times! Except designers would finally make it fit correctly, but then put a giant rhinestone parrot on the front to "hide" the fat rolls. lol

 

Mummergirl, I'd suggest shopping for mix and match seperate bathing suits. I think I posted here earlier that Lands End sells tops and bottoms seperately and they have bathing suit tops that go up to D-DD cups!

 

It does suck ordering from catalogues and you can't try it on before buying! I have two suits at home that I have to send back. What a pain. Maybe we should all start a Plus size women's bathing suit business!! wink.gif Anyone know how to sew?? lol

Heck yes I do! Girl, I can draft you a pattern based on your measurements and custom make any darn thing you want. I am so stinking sick of sewing though. I just had to do my collection last semester, and am staying as far from a sewing machine as I can for a while. You would think that I would have made some stuff for myself, but I have yet to do that. Maybe I will be daring and attempt a bathing suit at some point.

oh that's what i normally do (there is almost nothing "one-piece" in my wardrobe, let alone bathing suits), but for the wedding i needed bandeau and just wasn't finding ANYTHING two-piece that was strapless (except the bikinis in the juniors section, LOL).

Ah, yes, that makes it a whole different ball game! Ugh. I put on the Newport News Bandeau suit last night, which is one whole piece. I felt like it was a sausage encasing. LOL It would probably be better if it were two seperate pieces... I kept having to hoist up the top, because my middrift is a bit longer than the suit is made for.

Suffice it to say, the fiance got quite a show seeing me struggling to pull the dang thing on. popcorn.gif I'm not taking it to the lake this weekend as there is red dirt and I don't want my nice white bathing suit to discolor. I like it though.

Again, I say we all start our own bathing suit line!! wink.gif

Ok, I do not mean to seem like Debbie Downer but my second Jessica London shipment did not work out either. I ordered a 1x (normally wear 16/18 at NY&Co) and it was HUGE!!! Looked like a joke, it was such a shame because it was the cutest dress but just too big. So note if you are ordering from there ...order smaller!

 

Dress I ordered:

 

Plus Size Casual Dresses at Jessica London.com

 

I have to note that the quality was great tho, just not the right fit for me.

So we've been talking about Spanx alot lately. I went to one of our plus-size stores (pennington's) today and found something really similar. It isn't called Spanx, but it's the same idea. It has the legs and goes right up under the breasts. I decided to try it on. OMG!!! I couldn't believe what it did!! It so pulled me in, the legs or the top didn't roll, it was freakin' fantastic!!

 

Joanna, you were SO right! I'm glad that I listened to you! Thanks girl!! :)

I am glad you tried them! Spanx are great! I tried some from Penningtons, and I didn't like them at all the waist kept rolling down on me. I am glad they work for you though!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
