I hope everyone is enjoying their VDay (I’m still snowed in…ARGH!!!). I’ve come to learn that VDay is not only for couples but its a day to show love to family, friends and more importantly yourself. I want to put a different spin on a traditional VDay post and highlight some brands that deserve some love this holiday!
Curvaceous K is one of the few plus size boutiques in NYC that house curvy labels such as IGGI, Chinoo Designs and MYNT 1792. Unfortunately they need our help so they can continue to stay open to provide quality clothing to curvy fashionistas. Curvaceous K owner Kelly has started an Indiegogo campaign to generate funds to help keep her store operating. As plus size women we all know the frustrations we feel because of the lack of brick & mortar stores for us. We now have an opportunity to help this boutique in their time of need. This VDay lets show some love to Curvaceous K and support her amazing boutique.
Josephine Swim is a new plus size luxury swim line. They aim to offer chic and quality swimwear to curvy girls. Josephine Swim is not the frumpy, garish suits of old. These bathing suits aim to highlight and show off your curves. I already have my eye on theZanibar one piece for the Summer! With sizes ranging from 0x-3x you might find one that appeals to you so definitely show them some love!
It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of IGIGI and their wonderful dresses. As you already know IGIGI is all about loving your body and using fashion to express this. Check out their Spring look book here and show them some love this VDay!
Spring is here! Woo hoo! I’m so looking forward to ditching the down coat and wearing bright colors! . Even though the weather here in Philadelphia is FAR from Spring-like, I still wanted to wear something colorful to mark the occasion.
Speaking of Spring, IGGI has debuted their new Spring Awakening collection that embodies the season with vibrant colors, lush draping and gorgeous prints. In true IGGI style these beautiful dresses highlight and celebrate the curvy/plus body. As you know I’m a sucker for prints, so the Carmelle wrap dress (in the second picture) is a standout for me. What is your favorite?
As you ladies know I love dresses so when IGGI debuted their Cinema Retro collection I was very excited. While viewing the collection, the Sophie Colorblock Dress in black instantly caught my eye. The mix of black, tan and orange was a smart way to remain stylish yet professional at work. The dress has a retro/mod feel to it. The material is very stretchy and hugs your body in a flattering way. While the dress is very light it maintains it’s shape and doesn’t sag . The cinch in front of the dress highlighted my waist and tastefully showed off my curves. I had only one tiny issue with static cling but as the day went on it was less of a problem.
I included some images of the Cinema Retro collection below. There are more items in this collection on IGGI’s website so definitely check them out. As an owner of three IGGI dresses I have not been disappointed. I can say they are dedicated to providing women with fashionable clothing that celebrates our bodies.
