4 Brands Who LOVE (and flatter) Your Curves

I recently saw an amazing picture of a sign under a scale at a bariatric clinic in Denver that read: “This scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity.  THAT’S IT.  It cannot measure character, beauty, talent, purpose, possibility, strength, or love.” 

What an amazing and wonderful thing to see right next to one of the most dreaded devices known to womankind. No matter what our size, many of us spend a lot of time fretting over the numbers on the scale, rather than the numbers that really matter- the smiles we share every day, the hugs we give our friends and loved ones, or the hours we give to help others.

I personally spent years feeling that my value was directly related to the number on the scale. That is, until I learned to not only love my body for the miraculous things it is capable of. Over the years, I’ve also discovered some amazing plus clothing brands that truly understand that some women’s bodies are little more luscious and curvy than others- and do amazing things to flatter them.

There is nothing better than slipping into a fabulous piece by Kiyonna. Their cuts are amazing, the flow and feel of their fabrics are fabulous, and the fit flatters every curve while artfully camouflaging areas you might not want to flaunt.

JAG Jeans tops and bottoms utilize flattering cuts, great washes and amazing prints. I love their sophisticated take on denim that can be dressed up or down, all while defeating the dreaded muffin top! Their tops blend fabulous prints with light and airy fabrics that feel as good as they look.

1. Kiyonna Promenade Top

2. NYDJ Plus Size Solid 3/4 Sleeve Pleat Back

3. Poppy & Bloom Spring Forward Dress

4. Poppy & Bloom Plus Size On the Boardwalk Dress

5. Kiyonna Wanderlust Wrap Top

6. NYDJ Plus Size Dora Skirt

7. Jag Jeans Plus Size Caley Pull-On Crop

8. Jag Jeans Plus Size Eloise Pull-On Skirt

I don’t think I can ever say enough nice things about NYDJ and their life-changing jeans and skirts.  Cut for curves and flattering for every “asset”, their bottoms are almost magical! My personal favorite feature is the knowledge that I can chase my minions around any playground in their jeans without ever worrying about bending or squatting and showing off my underthings to the other parents.

Finally, let’s talk Poppy & Bloom, a new addition to Zappos.com. I am in total fashion lust with their gorgeous spring collection. From pinup-inspired pieces to office-ready skirts and dresses, you can’t help but feel both fierce and feminine in their clothing. They fit and flatter every curve while staying perfectly on trend.

I hope you’ll give these amazing plus fashion clothing brands a try! Their dedication to making women of all shapes and sizes feel and look fabulous is second to none, each having a great story to tell. 

If you’re rocking any of the amazing pieces you’ve seen here on Well Rounded Wednesday, please tag us in your photos on Twitter and Instagram using #WRW- we would LOVE to see your style!

The Style Edit, Wedding Edition: Pastels

One of the most noteworthy trends in bridesmaids’ dresses is mixing and matching design elements, whether it’s color, silhouette, accessories, or, for the adventurous bridal party—all of the above! Since spring is upon us, we’re highlighting one of the prettiest mix-and-match palette options for the bride’s best gals: pastels. Pastel dresses instantly add a soft, feminine appeal to your entire wedding motif.

Dressing the bridesmaids in various hues of pastel allows for a more individuality for each of the ladies while still creating a harmonious and cohesive look overall. It also adds more dimension and interest to your wedding photos!

Here are some useful tips to pull off a mix and match pastel look for your wedding:

Coordinate. While it’s easy to just give the girls free reign over what color of pastel they choose, make sure everyone is in communication with each other on what hues they want to wear—particularly if the group is spread out in different cities and not able to shop together. You want a good mix of pastels that look cohesive together, so giving the bridesmaids a little guidance is key.

 

A full shade apart. If you’re looking to do pastels in an ombré or gradient spectrum (soft shades of pink, for example), make sure each dress is at least a full shade away from the other. If two dresses are too similar in hue but not quite exact, it will end up looking off in pictures. Again, coordination with your bridesmaids is very important here.

 

Decide what elements to match. To keep the bridal party looking cohesive even when each girl is wearing a different shade of pastel, find elements that will stay the same across the board. Whether it’s hemline (long dresses vs short dresses), dress silhouette or fabrication, keeping a common thread will tie in the mixed pastels look together.

Of course, if you want to be more daring and bold, it’s totally fine to mismatch all elements! Anything goes!
