Hello Girls and welcome to the new site format for www.plussize.co.uk.  As you may already know the site has been running since 2005.  We have moved over to a Blog format, and tried to simplify the basic navigation around the site, making a few changes here and there.  This site is now dedicated to women only.  For the men in your life please visit www.outsizeclothes.com

The New Plus Size Fashion Blog Format

I hope to feature my ‘as recommended by Diane’ on the site each week.  I am a customer of www.plussize.co.uk so I have a good knowledge of the Merchants and their product offer (I am 5’9’’ tall and a UK 18, a plus size woman).  I am inviting Merchants to supply me with plus size clothing, shoes, accessories etc. and I will review and talk about them on the site each week.

Even within standard sizing many women have above a standard size in bra size, leg length, shoe size, calf width etc.  The High Street often does not cater specifically for these needs.  At www.plussize.co.uk I hope to bring you products that are beyond and above standard sizing.  Even if you do not perceive that you are a typical plus size customer, you may have an above standard size feature of your body that you cannot find the correct sizing for in the High Street.  At www.plussize.co.uk I intend to bring you what you need in a one-stop-shop for all clothing, footwear and accessories etc.

Please follow me on Twitter and tell me what you think.  It is only by ‘chatting’ to each other that I can improve the Merchant and product selection offer for my customers.  Looking forward to working with you all.

As recommended by Diane – The Skater Dress

womens plus size Skater DressAvailable to buy from M&S up to size 22  – £31.60

In all I thought the dress was good value for money at £31.60 and quite possibly the value find for the summer to take you through formal and semi formal occasions.  The only negative comment I would make is that the dress is not lined.  When I wore the dress I bought an anti-static half slip.  This seemed to work reasonably well but I have since sent my dress to the dressmaker for her to line the skirt (just me being fussy – a good petticoat would suffice).  Even if M&S had of charged £50 – £60 for this dress (with a lining) it would still have been great value for money.  Big pity about the lining but a great find for the money.  I wore the dress on an evening out to Dinner with my husband.  The dress is versatile enough to take you to many summer occasions and it is made from a heavier weight viscose blend fabric so is warm for the summer evenings too.

    • Hello

      Thank you for your comment……”Plus Size, but I’m not sure where to go next”. Although this is a Blog about plus size fashion it is also a site to purchase clothing, footwear, lingerie, and beauty products. At the top of the page are Tabs entitled e.g. Clothing, Footwear, Lingerie, Beauty etc. If you click on each of these Tabs you will get a menu displaying lists of retailers selling plus size fashions.

      I started the Blog on 15th June 2013. I am most grateful that you have taken the time to comment and contact me. The Post a blog once per week (sometimes twice per week) as a way of talking about plus size clothing related issues and introducing the Retailers that are on my site. It is difficult measuring (at this stage) just what exactly my viewers want to hear and see on a Blog posting each week. This is still Trial and Error for me. Thank you again. I can only (with practice and experience) get better at bringing content and retailer offers to the fore.

      Kind Regards

    be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!
