Chubby Girl In the World In Concept Phase of Plus Size Clothing Line!

All right ladies too long have we secretly cried in dressing rooms, too long have designers ignored us to pursue their "aspirational" fashion, what the hell good is fashion if it doesn't fit? Why should we continue to pour money into designers, companies and media outlets that only make us feel ashamed of what we are? Maybe you're a new mom, maybe you're tall or maybe like me your someone who has struggled with their weight their whole lives and just wants to feel like a human being in a department store!

Finding "The" Dress-Advice for the Plus size Bride

That's right ladies it's time for me to pick a wedding dress. Now, as fashion forward as I may be in my every day life, I'm envisioning an elegant affair to remember, something timeless something that will make me look like greta garbo (only shorter of course, and Mexican lol)

A few things about shopping for plus size gowns:
