How to Get Plus Size Clothes That Fit Perfectly

If there’s one thing most plus size women can agree on, it’s that finding clothes that FIT is extremely difficult.  We often settle for items that are too loose in some areas and too tight in other areas just because we need SOMETHING that works for us.

I feel for plus size brands because if you look at a group of 10 women who all wear a size 28, we almost all look completely different.  It’s not easy to make clothes that work for many different body types, so we’re often left with ill-fitting items or things that just look like tents so they’ll fit us all.

I recently discovered a way to get the perfect fit WITHOUT keeping a tailor on speed-dial:  custom clothing!

I think of two different things when I hear the term “custom clothing.”

  1.  The “olden” days when grandmas or moms would sew clothing for their families.
  2. Fancy celebrities who can afford couture.

Nothing in between.  It really never occurred to me that everyday women with little to no sewing skills (like me!) could have custom clothing made at a reasonable price, but we definitely can!

Monthly Faves – February

HELLO MARCH!!!!!  I always get so excited when March rolls around because Spring is the best!  I am so excited for all things Spring fashion, Spring cleaning, and SPRING BREAK!  I’m so inspired right now and my mind is racing with all of the things I want to share with you – so many ideas, so little time! Haha.

I’ve been brainstorming the best ways to share all of the things I’m loving with you and how I can organize it in a way that is most beneficial.  I’ve spent a lot of time sharing things I’m loving on IG stories and LOVE the conversations we all have via DM when I do.  On the other hand, when content disappears after 24 hours and the good discussions are happening one on one, not everyone benefits.

I’ve decided to start sharing a monthly roundup of all my favorite goodies I’m loving on the blog.   I’ll share all things fashion and beauty as always, but also home decor, business stuff, entertainment and more.  Don’t worry – the IG stories and our awesome convos will continue, but I’m excited to organize my thoughts here and hopefully spark conversations publicly so everyone benefits!

I hope you enjoy it!  Let’s dive into my first ever monthly faves roundup!  Here’s everything I was loving the most in February!
