Trendy Plus Size Clothes – Fall 2009 – Purple

Trendy Plus Size Clothes - Fall 2009 - Purple

Purple is my favorite color and I just love it when it is in style!  Purple is such a great color and it looks great on almost everyone.  The color is associated with spirituality, royalty and nobility.  It looks great paired with jeans, black or charcoal gray.  Another way you will see it this season is with the same color tunic top and leggings or pants – this is from the 1980s influence in fashion this season.  Seems like everything in available in purple this season – from plus size leather coats to evening gowns.  Purple tunic, tee-shirts and sweaters are especially plentiful.  I honestly don’t ever remember such a huge selection of purple plus size clothes.  I’ve been doing some serious shopping lately – here are my favorite purple pieces for this Fall & Winter.  Purple accessories including handbags, shoes, scarves, belts and even outerwear are also available in abundance.  Most purple pieces also look wonderful with some of the gold metallic accessories that are also popular right now.   I love purple jewelry as well – amethyst is my favorite gemstone, although it isn’t my birthstone.  I have collected a few magnificent amethyst pieces over the years and I love to wear them with my purple clothes – they always get noticed.

Below are some of my top picks – although many of them are pictured in other colors, they are all available in purple as well.  Have fun!

Trendy Plus Size Clothes for Fall 2009

Trendy Plus Size Clothes for Fall 2009

Can you believe it? It is the end of August, most kids have started back to school and Fall is upon us. Hey, wait a minute! What happened to summer?

The good news is that will Fall comes the new Fall Fashions. I’m sure we can all agree that Autumn is the most exciting fashion season. There is a great variety of styles and trends this season – something for everyone! Most of the styles are carry-overs from previous seasons – purple and hot pink will continue to dominate. The trend I am most excited about is that Black is Back! There is no “new black” this season! Being an Animal Print lover, I am happy to see them so strong this season. I also love Tunics and it looks like there will be a great assortment – especially those embellished with Sparkle & Shine. The 1980s strong shoulder/shoulder pad look was seen on the runways and in high fashion. I hope that look shows up in plus sizes, for all of us pear shaped ladies. The spring & summer had equal emphasis on gold & silver, but it is all gold for fall. Look for gold metallic accessories and accents.

Here are some of my favorite Trendy Plus Size Fall Fashions:

Bra Fitting Guide

To best present the girls in the most complimentary light, make sure they’re in the right brassiere. You know how that saying goes, if you got it, flaunt it! So, if you’ve been blessed with abundance, then by all means, don’t take your breasts for granted by hoisting them in plain Jane bras! They deserve sass! They deserve sexy! They deserve to be treated to fine lace and leopard print.It’s true, the bigger your breasts are, the more difficult it is to find a bra that fits right. Sometimes the underwire pinches, or you spill a bit over the top. But never fear, there is always a solution!

First of all, let’s bring out the soft tape measure and do a private fitting. In front of a mirror, measure underneath your breasts. Starting at your cleavage, pass the tape measure behind your back and around to your front. This is your band size.

Next, move the tape up to your armpits and measure above your breast. Write that number down on a piece of paper. Now, measure your breast at nipple level. Subtract the number you wrote down from the nipple-around-and-back measurement, and voila! That’s your cup-size!

0 to 1/2″ AA cup

1/2″ to 1″ A cup

1″ to 2 1/2″ B cup

2 1/2″ to 3 1/2″ C cup

3 1/2″ to 4 1/2″ D cup

4 1/2″ to 6″ DD (or E cup for some bras)

6″ to 7″ DDD (or F cup for some bras)

7″ to 8″ G cup

8″ to 9″ GG cup

9″ to 10″ H cup

10″ to 11″ HH cup

11″ to 12″ J cup

12″ to 13″ JJ cup

Also, it’s good to note that along with our moods, our breast size fluctuates just a bit when Aunt Flo swings by for a visit. Regardless, like all clothes, if it doesn’t fit right, return it! Several online shops, such as HipsandCurves.com, offer great customer service and return policies. Be sure to check out these bras!
