Fashionable with a fabulous fit {review}

Women, for the most part, are particular about what they wear. They are concerned about all aspects of their accessories and clothing including the style, color and fit. Sometimes when they (ahem, we) gain a little weight or our body changes we need to think about finding clothes that are fashionably fit. And, along the same lines, if we’re apart of the voluptuous set it’s often difficult to find pieces that fit right.

That’s where Fashion to Figure comes in - “Bringing fashion to the figure 12 to 26.” They’re an online retailer that sells plus-sized and trendy clothing for women. I had the chance to try a couple of pieces from FashiontoFigure.com and I was pleased with the choices available. The only “problem” I had while shopping was the majority of the pieces I like did not come in the smallest size. I did learn that a size 14 can equate to a 1X, but the fit is different and fuller.

When it comes to the khaki Basic Stretch Camisole that I chose, the fit is almost perfect. It’s a little long for jeans, but it’s easy to adjust so that I’m not flashing anyone when I wear low jeans. The nylon and spandex (92 percent and 8 percent, respectively) material are soft and durable. If “regular” sized camisoles ride up on your or are too short then I would definitely recommend getting one from FTF.

Because I needed to stay in a specific price range for the items that I chose and the smaller sizes were limited, I chose a top that I wasn’t sure I would like. Unfortunately, I didn’t like the way it fit on me although the waistband and length were ideal. The print and the dolman-styled sleeves didn’t flatter my figure at all. Since I shopped on FTF there are quite a few new items added as well as bunches I’d love to try that I believe will look fabulous on me.

Since I’ve gained back the weight I loss (yes, I’m finally admitting it), Fashion to Figure is an online store that I will definitely visit for items for my more rounded curves. Whether you’re on the smaller scale of the plus size or the larger, FashiontoFigure.com has a fashionable piece – tops, bottoms, denim, accessories, intimates, jewelry, dresses, jackets – that you’re sure to adore.

Disclosure: I received two items from Fashion to Figure  for free for the purpose of this review. That arrangement did not effect my opinion; any opinions expressed here are my own. For more information review my complete policy.
