FULL FIGURED AND FABULOUS
The Denim Diaries
Greetings from Full Figured & Fabulous! This week’s topic is….drum roll please….DENIM! Some full figured women hate the idea of wearing jeans and others just can seem to find the right fit. Well, I ‘m here to share a few secrets of my own. I LOVE Denim…but finding the right fit can be a journey within itself. Another demon is finding jeans at an affordable price. LAWD knows, I’m frugal and I absolutely would kill for a deep discount! I can help you with that also; there’s no reason to break that bank to look fabulous!
What I’ve noticed over the years for my quest for the perfect fitting plus sized jeans is two things:
1) The more expensive the jeans the worse they fit.
2) Jeans with a hint of spandex seems to ALWAYS get the job done.
I never buy jeans from stores such as Lane Bryant, The Avenue & Ashley Stewart. While I like all of these stores for different reasons, denim is just not their strong point. What I’ve learned is that they tend to make their jeans with a little extra space in the front …in other words a “tummy pocket”. Yes, I know I’m a big girl but I don’t need my jeans to remind me of that. They tend to make you look frumpy and for the most party just plain ole sloppy.
While jeans from stores such as Torrid are hip and fun, their just plain took expensive. Why should I have to pay $58.00 for a pair of jeans? They’re not designer and for that price, the need to be trimmed in gold. My favorite all time place to buy plus sized jeans is the Deb Shop! They offer denim in sizes 14-24 and guess what? They don’t have “tummy pockets” Yayyyyy!!!! Also, their priced at just about $35.00 a pair! What a score! For the most part, they usually have a sale; either 19.99 a pair or buy 1 get 1 50% off. The colors/washes they have are hip and up to date. I myself love the ones that are frayed in the knee and thigh area. They fit your curves perfectly and give off the same effect as the $58.00 pair from Torrid.
In my book, jeans are like a just like a good bra, you can’t get enough of them. If you find a brand that fits you the way you like: buy them, buy them all…even if they are the same color. Obsessive, maybe but as a full figured woman, we all know that decent clothes at affordable prices come few and far between. So there is goes…Denim from Full Figured & Fabulous! Remember the old saying, “Ain’t nobody but a dog wants a bone!” Live and love life! Be beautiful, be comfortable in your skin and most important love yourself for who you are not who you want think you should be!
