Finding your own style!

It's not difficult to establish your own style, if you put your mind to it.

Often it's easier to just buy "anything" that might fit, wear it and then become dissatisfied as to how you "feel" when wearing that garment.   It's doesn't take too much to realise that we often buy something that isn't the right design; isn't the right colour; and the fabric doesn't do justice to our shape.

Yet, we often make the same mistake over and over.

There are many books on the subject of "style" and how to choose what to wear to suit our own personalities.  Of course these days there are thousands of blogs about the same subject, but it's nice to work out our own "style", based on what we like and how we can manipulate what we like into what we look and feel good in wearing.

It's setting our sights on trusting our own instincts, following those instincts and building up our confidence in knowing exactly what our personal style is, and can be.

The numbers of good suppliers of clothing for the curvaceous woman are increasing.  Yes, there are more and more in the marketplace each month.  And this is good - for them, and for us.

Take a moment to visit  For the woman in her 30s and older, she will immediately see an interesting return to some of our favourite designs and styles of the 50s and 60s (even from photos of her mother and grandmother's time).  That was before Twiggy turned the world upside down and our lives with it!  *  Not that Twiggy went out of her way to do so, it's just that she was (and is) a naturally very thin woman, yet the media took her"look" and insisted that we should all try and emulate her.  The same applies in many ways today, but women everywhere are questioning why we should all diet to become something we're not, so that we fit into clothes that we may not necessarily think will suit us.  And the dress designers and suppliers who, in the main, are managed by women who are curvaceous themselves, and stepping out and bringing us some stunning and flattering clothing.

Even the dress below reminds us of the 50s and 60s with its generous fluid lines around the body - maybe we didn't go for kerchief hemlines back then, but that's the only difference.
