Hi guys! I wanted to tell you about a cool new service for plus size fashion. Readers of this blog may remember my feelings on plus size fashion as featured on this blog http://smilingldsgirl.com/2010/10/16/a-note-on-plus-size-fashion/
However, bad fashion aside one of the problems bigger girls like me has is that our sizes can fluctuate greatly depending on a ton of different factors. I’ve changed sizes in as quick as a month both on the upswing and downswing. This can be extremely discouraging and expensive. Most of the time it leaves us girls wearing frumpy clothes that are too lose or tight (both depressing). You don’t feel pretty but you don’t want to invest in new clothing that you may only wear for a couple of months. So you end up buying something cheap that is hardly flattering. Basically you settle.
Well, someone has finally figured out a solution to this problem. Its called Gwynnie Bee. It is basically the netflix of clothes. You log on to the site and then build up your ‘closet’ full of shirts, skirts, dresses and blazers (no pants for some reason?) and all of them are size 10 to 30 and designer names. You can then pick a plan ranging from $35 for one piece of clothing, $59 for 2, $79 for 3. For basically the price of a pair of jeans you can look fresh and new.
It only takes 2 days to send you your clothes and it includes a usps bag to seal up the garments when you are finished. Then in 2-4 days you get the next items on your list. Here’s an overview
Don’t you think that is a clever idea? My only concern is that I need pretty modest clothes because of my religion and they have too many short dresses (I am also 5 ‘8 so what is short to me may be just right for some). Right now you can try for free for 30 days.
What do you guys think?
