I have to confess I was “giving up” on a number of the Australian suppliers for not having the courage (or initiative) to seriously look at the plus-size figure as something of beauty to be complimented and enhanced by loving clothing - rather than the run-of-the-mill sameness that has been appearing in our stores for far too long.
But size 22 plus women, want something that glides over the figure - yes, we still have a figure whether you believe it or not. This is why I was so pleased to see the latest range from TS 12-24 Celebrate Your Curves.
Taking Shape - the name says it all. Now the brand is coming up with some great ideas for the woman whose size ranges between 12-24. What a pity they don’t go into higher sizes!
This is a fabulous tunic/gown. Called the White Noise Shirt Dress, it can be worn with leggings, slim pants, and if you have fabulous legs (like Maggie T) then black beautiful stockings.
With a button down front, this garment can be worn dressed-up or dressed-down, open or closed. Large side splits at the sides allows for comfort, especially when sitting. The cap sleeves (15cm) I would have preferred to be longer, but then if you like layering then a smart black sleeved cami or light tee shirt can disguise the thicker arms that many plus-size women experience.
I love the length of this garment and I also love what appears to be a collar. Collars always seem to me to add a bit of class - don’t ask me why, but that’s my humble opinion.
