Pecfect Bras . . . . . Plus Sized

Hey my Plus sized divas. . . . I not sure if you all feel the same way that i do about this subject. Bras ! who likes to go shopping for bras? I know I don't. I get soooo tired and frustrated, trying on this one and that one. Then you get someone to help you. then she doesn't know what she is doing. Then I am like whatever and don't buy anything.

This time, I was determind to find my perfect bra. I made a trip to my Lane Bryant. When I arrived at the store. My Favorite girl salesladie was there. She was like "what you looking for girl". I told her "I am looking for a bra girl". She was like we got some new Bras. One is the Back Smoother Bra, and the other is the T-Shirt bra. So I went and I tried on them both. OMG I fell in love with them both. They my boobs look so good.









The T-shirt is a good bra to wear with tees. It is a seamless bra. It have a little padding, but not wear u can notice. It comes in 3 finishes: Cotton, Lace, and satin










The Back Smoother, did what it says. It smooth out my back fat + made my boobs look good. You even can make the straps crisscross, for back support. Comes only in a satin finish

To my Plus sized divas, Please go check these bras out. We all need a good bra. When you have a good bra makes your clothes look good.

What's Your Shape? Triangle Shape


Today shape is the Triangle shape: If you are a Triangle you have a larger top half than bottom half, which is the reverse of the Pear shape. Triangles have broad shoulders with proportionally narrow hips.


Tips How to Dress Your Shape

  • Add weight to your hips with flared or A-line dresses and skirts. You need to draw attention downwards so wear brighter, thicker fabrics on your bottom half. Create the illusion of larger hips with pockets, buttons or other details.

  • By contrast, keep details to a minimum on jackets and tops. Shawl collars will flatter the line of your shoulders, and jackets that flare at the hem will give your silhouette balance.
  • Hipster jeans will enhanced your waistline, and boot-cut trousers will widen the lower leg. That will stop you from looking top heavy.


  • Wear fitted tops with deep round or V necks to break up your shoulder line. Keep the look simple and understated, and avoid bulky accessories such as thick scarves and heavy jewelry.

    Does Size Matter. . . . . Hung Up On The Xl



    Why do women focused on numbers and letters, when it comes down to clothes. I think It all starts with out weight, and not wanting people to know how much we weigh. How many divas have lied on there Divers License about your weight? I know i have, scared what people would say.

    Plus we have an hung up about people knowing our clothing tags size. Then people would know your real sized. Without the tag you can lied about our sized or weight. But if your friends see your tag, they will know the real you.

    I was one of those women. where i was only plus sized girl in my group of friends. So I wouldn't want to go shopping with them. Since we couldn't shop in the same store, Plus I didn't want them to know my true sized. I still struggle with this issue sometimes in my life. But everyone has a bad day.

    Look at me now, it took me a long time to get to this point. Were I don't care about the tag sized anymore. What matters is how it fits on your body. I rather go up a sized or down a sized. To make sure that it fits right. Not having my clothes look a hot mess on, where i am struggling putting my pants or, or trying to zip them up. Women don't know by doing that, you end up with a muffin top.

    LADIES let go of the XL and welcome the right sized !

    Who Say We........ Can't Look Hot In A Swimsuit


    Well this year was my first time wearing a swimsuit. I always had these excuses to not wear one. You know what they are ladies. I need to lose some weight before I can put one on, I want find one in my sized, People gonna laugh at me. I can go on for while with all our thoughts and feelings. Then something hit me one day. "what if i never lose the weight and all other problems I have about wearing a swimsuit. So I was like what the hell, I am going to get me a cute, sexy swim suite and be happy with my body. The body that god gave me.


    So I thought that this was gonna be easy task, to find a cute sexy plus sized swim suite. Well I started to look, and I was coming up kinda short. I started to think maybe I will never find a swimsuit that is cute. I kept finding ugly, big flower print swim suites. Something that my mom or grandmother would wear. Why do designers, think since we are plus sized that we don't want to look good and sexy, just like other people in the world (skinny people). I want to look cute and sexy just like they do.
    I wanted to find something for my age, something cute and sexy u know? Then I found some, but they was a little pricey. I am diva on a budget, go to find something in my budget.

    The I was in Old Navy and there it was ladies . It was so cute. It was bright and colorful just like i am. When I take pic, I will upload them.

    So to my Plus Sized Divas, Go out there and find you a cute sexy swimsuit, and post pic of you in them on my blog. I would love to see you in them.

    Here is some cute swim suites i found that are cute
