I don't know about you, but I personally find it VERY hard to find clothes that I like in my size - what with being a 1x or 2x and 6 feet tall and pregnant to-boot, it is almost impossible!
I do come across the odd website here and there though, which do offer clothes in my size that aren't too short, aren't too tight and aren't too much like your grandmothers tablecloths when you put them on!
One of these sites is 24/7 Frenzy, which offers a wide range of regular size clothes and lingerie alongside a nice selection of plus size clothes too!
I got in the mail, last week, a dress from 24/7 Frenzy, which is a pretty summer dress that rests off the shoulder, belts at the waist and finishes off with a frill trim and is very pretty for summer! My husband isn't too keen on it, and would argue that it makes me look like something out of the Waltons, but actually this dress looks much better on the body than it does on the rack and [paired with the right kind of shoe or boot] could make for any occasion!
My dress came in a size 3x and it fits well but I had been told ahead of time that the dresses ran a little small and so I ordered up to be prepared - the extra space also allows for a bit of a baby bump without too much trouble even though this is not intended as a maternity dress!
The photo to the left is my actual dress, on the hanger, and the photo to the right is from the 24/7 website (all rights reserved) and shows how the dress is supposed to be worn!
The belt is cute and will cinch in the waist as necessary and so you really can make this dress fit your shape without too much of a hassle, too! The only real problem I do have with the dress is that is it a little shorter than I would usually wear, BUT this is easily fixed with a cute pair of tights or a short legging! In fact, it would look nice with a thick tight and knee-high boot for a fall look without any problems at all!!
I do love the selection of tops that 24/7 Frenzy has on their site and would encourage you to take a look over there and see exactly what they have to offer as they are so much more than summer dresses! One of my favorite items is actually to be found HERE - it is a long, tunic top and SO pretty and floaty for summer!
It really is about time more clothing lines added a plus size range and perhaps thought about us tall folk too! Sites like 24/7 Frenzy really do buck the trend and cater for real women with curves and do not expect us all to be a size 0!
You could WIN!
