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.

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.
