some ladies might still feel a little bit nervous about shopping for plus size clothes online, but simply be is a retailer i would test out. have you ever shopped at simply be? their clothes are typically really well made and quality for the price. i swung by there recently to check out what they have in stock, and i saw some really cute stuff for summer. my friend catherine schuller, who is totally an expert on plus size fashion having been one of the first plus size models EVER, was the first to introduce me to simply be.
they’ve got all kinds of different styles, and you’re totally sure to find something that you like for an occasion you might be dressing for. their sizes range from a 10-28, and they’re striving to make fashionable pieces available to a wide spectrum of sizes! here’s what i saw on my recent swing through that really caught my eye!
i love this black floral print maxi dress. it’s got little hummingbirds on it, and with the yellow belt to accessorize, it’s the perfect shape for a lot of plus size women shopping for a summer dress. it’s got a little sleeve on it, too, so if you’re uncomfortable with showing your entire arm (as is sometimes a concern when shopping for plus size summer clothes), then this dress could be perfect for you! it’s floral without being TOO MUCH floral. you know what i mean?
now this black lace jumpsuit romper thing looks like, at first glance, just your regular ol’ plus size jumpsuit in black. we’ve seen tons of those right? but then, if you check out the back, it’s got this lace inset for a little touch of sex appeal. LOVE that. very chic with a black belt, a little more casual with a pop of color at the waist. or maybe you could score a nude belt – that would look great with this, as well. super easy chic.
maybe you’re groaning at the thought of another plus size jumpsuit / romper in black. i know, i know, we see them ALL the time. so then why not try something that’s totally going to draw attention to yourself? this is totally on the other end of the spectrum – and simply be offers what you’re going to be comfortable in. they’ve got basic black, they’ve got things with a little bit of pattern, and then they’ve got items that go ALL OUT like this geometric printed jersey jumpsuit. love the blue, love the way it’s styled with heels and a little clutch and the bangles stacked up the arms. i also love that plus size retailers are finally starting to realize that many of us love the jumpsuit and don’t want it in just that basic black. thank you simply be!
let’s say that you’re looking for something super work appropriate (that also happens to be so, so sexy, especially on a plus size or curvy body), then you have GOT to try this black peplum dress. the peplum is a mini-trend that we’re seeing this season, and a lot of ladies seem to be scared to rock it, but we’ve seen it look fantastic on several different plus size shapes over and over again. you should try this basic style from simply be out!
