I have never been too fond of going clothes shopping. Sure, I know what I like and know what flatters my body but since my body is considered plus-size, finding clothes that actually fit is usually impossible. I have started to dread going to the stores to try and find new clothes, whether it’s an outfit to wear out for our anniversary or just simply jeans and a tee, the lack of selection in my size is frustrating and disappointing. Plus there’s the always fun trip to the dressing room with a handful of “maybe this will fit” only to discover that nothing fits. Usually by the time I leave a store, I’m annoyed, frustrated and typically empty handed with possibly a few tears. It seems like there is never anything that will actually fit my plus size, different size on top than bottom body. I love my curves, I just sometimes want to be able to dress in something besides baggy jeans and a baggy shirt.
After giving up hope at the typical department stores, I stumbled into a Lane Bryant one day. Never have I found so many cute tops in my size! Plus there were jeans that actually fit my hips, cute dresses, even cute bras in my size. Finding a cute bra that fit and was comfortable was wonderful, most stores either don’t carry my size or the bras are quite ugly. Not the case at Lane Bryant! These are super cute, even sexy! The tops are wonderful, sizes that fit and that are long enough to actually cover me. Other stores have “plus sizes” but the shirts are so short that they just barely cover my belly. For the past several years, Lane Bryant has been my one and only store to do my clothes shopping so I was delighted to discover the new style tool Fashion Genius that was added to the website! Fashion Genius is a technology breakthrough that gives plus size women what they have always craved: easy access to fashion that caters to their unique body shapes and style preferences.
I headed over to the Sonsi website to try out this new style tool and immediately loved it! Here’s a little more information about it:
