About the blog
Plus size fashion, I know how frustrating it can be. There are little to no fashionable outfits, less than pleasant experiences in the fitting rooms because not everything fits you the way you want. It doesn’t look flattering and sometimes it looks outdated. After years of frustration I went searching for better options in plus size fashion. Even though the selection is limited, it broadened my horizon. With tis blog I want to show curved women that we can wear what we want and try to show them a way in the world of plus size fashion.
Most of the items on my blog I found online. I realize this can be a threshold for some people. Pictures make it difficult to see what the item really looks like. We prefer to try something on before we decide to purchase and sending back an item usually costs money. The chance of a bad purchase and the hassle of sending things back prevents us from placing an order.
But do not fear… the answer is near.
On this blog you will find reviews about the quality, the fit and the sizing of the brand (whether this fits just right or comes out too big or too small).

I’m Ruth, a 29-year-old curvy woman from Belgium. I’ve always been overweight even when I was a kid. At my heaviest, I had a size 24 and finding clothing was a difficult task. It still is today as a size 20.
For me personally my teenage years were the hardest, I was bullied quit a lot because I was fat and didn’t feel good about myself.
When you’re a young adult you want to discover your true self and develop your own sense of style. As a plus size teen back then, this was not an easy challenge. Going shopping with my friends wasn’t my idea of fun. I was ashamed that I couldn’t try anything on because it wouldn’t fit me. That I had to shop where are mums did, because those were the only clothes that fit me. I was ashamed because other people embarrassed me and laughed at me.
When you get older and you get a better perspective on things, having to choose a plus size brand doesn’t seem like a big deal anymore. You start to realize that the judgments of other people don’t matter and that loving yourself is what you need to do. You learn to accept yourself as you are and you make the best of it.
So despite the limited options in plus size fashion I’ve managed to find my own style. I’ve learned that this can do wonders for your self-image. Because the more you find clothing that you love and feel good in, the more you tell yourself: “you look great”. A little sentence with a big impact on your confidence.
That’s why I’m starting this blog, so I can help curvy women and introduce them to plus size fashion. Who knows…? I might just awaken your inner fashionista.
Enjoy the blog!
