This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Just My Size Sportswear apparel.
Let me tell you, I have lots of friends who make weekly ritual runs through all the local clothing stores to see what fun, cute little somethings they can pick up to add to their already stylish wardrobe. I, however, am not one of those girls. I never find some dainty little shirt or comfy summer dress on a normal shopping trip. I have to make sure I go to a store that carries women’s plus sizes and I can assure you those sizes can’t be found at the local clothing boutiques.
A normal shopping trip for me looks like this:
1. Find a full day on the calendar for a shopping trip.
2. Find a baby sitter for the wee one for a full day.
3. Travel (from where I am) about an hour to department stores that carry women’s plus sizes.
4. Spend tons of time walking through the plus size section of the store looking for something that is half way stylish and not something my bestfriend’s grandmother would wear.
5. Get all hot and sweaty trying on clothes in the dressing room, because let’s face it, not all clothes are sized equally, especially in the plus size department.
6. Spend more money for the few things I do find, because let’s face it again, plus size clothing usually costs more.
7. Get all depressed because of numbers 4, 5 and 6.
8. Drive an hour back home.
9. Pay the baby sitter.
Oh, and let’s not forget when a special occasion arises and there is a need for an outfit for that. I’d rather just curl up and, well, do something other than go look for an outfit.
But let me tell you friends, I have discovered Heaven on earth. And it’s called Just My Size. I’d heard of Just My Size before, but always just thought the brand made bras and panties. Not so! Just My Size is an entire line of women’s plus size clothing designed by a plus size woman just for girls like me and you! How exciting is that!!!
When you visit their website you won’t just find pictures of clothes with an option to add what you like to a cart. Oh no mam! You can click on tabs at the top of the page, one of which is called Mix & Match. That tab will allow you to choose your body type and get started finding clothes that will fit your curves.
Let’s talk about the clothes. Remember me saying I would always have to dig to find clothes that didn’t look like something my best friend’s grandmother would wear? Well, not a chance of that with Just My Size. I went shopping at Wal-Mart, right here in my own town, 3 minutes down the road, and look what I found – at normal clothes prices! I didn’t even have to leave my daughter with a baby sitter to get what you’re about to see.
Dresses! I've never worn dresses before. I mean, come on, if you know me you I'm a jeans and tee kind of girl! But how cute is this dress??? Does this look like something your grandmother would wear? I didn't think so!
Capri pants that are stylish, yet accommodating and comfy along with a beaded tee! Does it get any better than that on a 101 degree August day?
I wore this on this on the first day of school this year. That's why I look so rough! Anyway, not only was I comfortable and cool all day long, but I got comments on my shirt from the first person I saw that morning through the whole day! That's never happened before on the first day of school!
You see this tee? I've never found such a stylish printed tee in a flattering size until I found Just My Size!
