Plus Sized Fashion: How To Feel Like A Goddess In Any Size

Self-Love & Soft Fabrics

Have you ever heard that you can’t fill someone else’s cup when yours is empty? Start from the inside by honoring you! Choose comfortable, soft fabrics that you enjoy feeling on your skin, first and foremost. Dress yourself for the weather, and for the day’s activities, before even thinking about the outside world.

Because you deserve it, and because your presence radiates more than any garment could - So keep that lady smiling!

Confidence in Unapologetic Color

There is no shame in living your life to the fullest. Allowing yourself to take up space means paying full respect to everything that makes you the vibrant and unique individual you are. We don’t reluctantly whisper our glories when we see them for what they are, we shout them from the rooftops!

To the people who love and value you most deeply, are you the creative one? The kind soul? The sharp one? The loyal one who always makes time?

Hiding that away from the world is a disservice to all those who need exactly what you are. Let colors speak on your strengths, and shine your light as it’s meant to be seen.

Comfortable Fit with Flexibility

Self image and identity are oh-so fluid. With each passing day we evolve and shift, and sometimes our weight does too. Can you imagine a world without changes, though? It is the nature of life to adjust, to over- and under-do it, until we get it right.

Give yourself the freedom to find your balance with an adjustable fit, and release all of the tensions that start with ‘I should’. Should is a third-person word, designed for other people’s expectations, and is only self-used when our ‘standards’ don’t truly match our desires. When we really do want what we’re telling ourselves, we say ‘I could’, ‘I will’, or ‘I’d love to’.

“I should still fit into this”

“I could wear this during every season!”

“I will lose a few pounds when work slows down.”

“I’d love to bring that skirt on my next trip!”

Empower What Powers You

Empowerment means taking responsibility for your sense of being, and managing your personal world to provide you with the life you want. As any manager will tell you, sometimes things have to take the back burner so that the important tasks get done.

We are open hearts, kind souls, hard working women, and devoted mothers; that’s where our power belongs.

…and until the slim-and-single image has something better to offer than a different shadow at our feet, we will continue to put our focus into the character and love that makes our lives and experiences Darn Good.
