They Call Us Curvalicious!

Calling all my beautiful curvy ladies!

Are you looking for new stylish outfits, that aren't the size and shape of a hessian sack? Well, look no further!

I've been scouring the interwebs for some fantastic new clothes for myself, and I've happened across these little beauties...

Chubby Cartwheels
http://www.chubbycartwheels.com/

A great store for buying leggings. They fit like a gem and are made of high quality material. They also have a few other items, like bodysuits, for those more adventurous ladies, jackets, skirts, and bandeau tops. Shipping to Victoria (Aus) is pretty reasonable, at around $12-15, depending on how many items. Everything is handmade so expect a delay of a few days. Shown below, from left to right: Two tone, lace, and classic.




Cult Of California

Some seriously sexy, slimmin', stylin' clothes! I am currently in love with their "Out Of This World" collection, the patterns and material are to die for! They have a great range of skirts and tops that would be great for the office, as well as some ahhhhmazing dresses. As a bonus, they also stock some really comfy sport/yoga wear. Their skirts (selected styles) come with built in shorts, to stop the chafing, and the shorts are designed not to ride up, and are the perfect length so they aren't seen under the skirt! They ship to Aus ($25) and have a great Returns Policy. Shown below left to right is: Heritage Peplum Skirt (Black) with Mesh Sleeve Top, Galaxy Fit N Flare Dress, & Sanctuary Cold Shoulder Top with Basic Leggings.

TF20 is a great little gem when you're looking for the perfectly fitted dress. Their collection hugs all the right places, and helps show off that beautiful body you already have. Some amazing staple dresses that are a must for your wardrobe this season. Trouble Maker Dress in Pink, & Take No Prisoners Dress

 

Swak Designs
http://www.swakdesigns.com/

Labelled as contemporary plus fashion, Swak doesn't fail to deliver! They have some amazing key pieces, that are both comfortable and stylish. My favourite aspect of their online store is the My Style/My Size section, where you can mimic one off their fashionistas. Another great idea from Swak is their Eternity Convertible Wrap Dress, it's available in short or long length, and can be wrapped and styled in dozens of different styles. Shown below is their Eternity Convertible Maxi Dress in Desert Sky, and the Emma Maxi Dress.

City Chic

Previously known as Big City Chic, CC is a classy clothing brand for all of us beauty-full curvy ladies. CC has an advantage for Aussie's, as they also have a physical store that you can actually visit to try things on. I absolutely adore their collections, and only wish I had more money so I could buy EVERYTHING. They offer everything from undies, bras, tops, skirts and pants, to boots, belts and dresses. I cannot explain how much I simply love their store. Shown below, from left to right are; Drape Goddess Dress in Zinnia, Sexy Swing Skirt, and Chain Neck Peplum Top.




Okay, so I think that is everything...For the moment anyway! If you have any other brands that you think are worth a mention, comment below and let me know!


Until next time,
