One in particular that I love is Tadashi Shoji. He dressed Octavia Spencer for the Oscars and since then, I have fallen in love with his work. Tadashi Shoji is known for designing for all ages, all ethnicities, and all figures. He uses figure-flattering techniques, such as draping, ruching, and shutter pleats, to accentuate the positives. His signature pieces include draped jersey gowns, pleated chiffon gowns, and shutter pleated cocktail dresses.
Another designer you can emulate for plus size is Jessica Simpson. Her collections are often made for all sizes. She dresses women in everyday clothing. Not high end, not for skinnies.
So ladies, we big girls don't have to be dressed in rags or huge sacks. Start googling, read about fashion that suits your figure. We may not have hour glass, but we can find things that would allow us to look good. There are ways to accentuate your figure, hide your bulges and slim you down, visually that is. So don't give up and do some homework.
I am not slim, nor am I tall. I am not even fair skinned, as many Asians are obsessed about. But I think I can look good, with that extra effort.
So, here's to a new year, with new hope!
