All my plus size ladies, all my plus size ladies, put your hands up, up… – By Kallah Maguire, The Stylist

Crystal Renn, plus size

‘I’d love to see the fashion industry open their eyes to the variety of women.  That variety is what’s beautiful’ – Crystal Renn, plus size model

There’s so much talk about what size models should be versus what’s healthy, and what size women in general should be verses what’s realistic.  What is realistic is that we’re all different sizes, shapes, and colors, and there’s nothing wrong with that.  Human beings are supposed to be different!  Being healthy and happy at the size that works best for your body type is the most important part.

As you may suspect, my friends and clients that fall into the plus size range have a hard time finding stylish clothes.  Until they talk to me that is ; )   Sexy dresses, flirty skirts, fun tops and classy coats abound at Igigi!  Igigi is a wonderful resource for my plus size ladies that are looking for some style, and one of my favorite brands for sizes 12 and up.

If you take the time to search, there are actually a lot of good plus size brands out there today – Thanks to Beth Ditto there will be another really kick butt one coming out this year, yay!  It’s wonderful to see the fashion world moving (slow as it may be) toward more size varieties, and less stigma on not being a sample size.  I mean come on, curves are sexy!

    Thanks so much for this post!! Never would I have thought to see something for plus size women on MTM, but this was a pleasant surprise. Also, I’ve never heard of this store before (but SO NEEDED to!) so I am glad I found a new place to shop. I’ll definitely check it out.

  • You are so welcome, I had a blast writing it! Igigi is only available online, that’s one of the ways they keep their prices so reasonable. Their staff is wonderful and really helpful with figuring out what size will best fit you.

    Let me know how it goes, if you buy some Igigi pieces and send me pics of you looking fabulous in them, I’ll post them here on MTM as an update ; )
