Life in the Fat Lane – My Plus Size Journey
From this (Alfred Dunner-current collection here)….
These two pictures were taken about 10 years apart. I’m younger in the first one, but feel younger in the second. For many years, I made do with what was available for plus-size woman – shapeless clothes that hid all the flaws. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad there was something available, but I always felt there should be something…else.
Now there is. Plus-size clothing is beginning to come with some shape to it that flatters bigger curves.
Previously, I shopped mostly at Hamrick’s and JC Penney. To my delight, I have found that there are way more options now in both brick-and-mortar stores and online. Now that the fashion industry is changing, I am starting to find my way to my true style. And it’s exciting! As my journey continues, I’ll happily share what I learn.
