The Super Tango II, above, is my go to, and daily bra most of the time.
Bit of a strange shape on the Harmony bra. Maybe I need a still larger cup size? Nevertheless, I love the lift and support.
I own several of each of these, recommend them highly and wear a J cup size.
And while it has been on sale for a while, and is now still available in few full figure sizes, 42B coffee color or white color. This pretty Chantelle plus size bra is just $40, down from $94, and it gets good ratings too!
Click on the pictures to go straight to them at Her Room and enjoy great lift, support and saving!

Currently Designer Studio’s new arrivals featuring Kenneth Cole down jackets, but they tend to come in sizes up to XL.
This Baby Phat puffer jacket comes in sizes 1XL to 3XL. The faux fur trim is detachable, and the elegant baby phat logo cats are subtle!
Baby Phat also has a fur bomber, belted plaid, and other removable fur puffer cat jackets in their Plus Size Section.
For a sleeker look in jackets, I like Silhouettes’ Gillian Grey Pointe di Roma Riding Jacket, and their new Cascade Plaid Jacket below. The riding jacket comes in sizes up to 26W and this cascade jacket in sizes up to 3XL.
Silhouettes makes it easy to get the most out of your wardrobe dollar with great money saving deals like this one below!
Designer Studio also has True Religion Buddha hats and Ed Hardy sunglasses in new arrivals.
When I was young, I got the impression that Buddhism was a peaceful religion. I am reading The Bloody White Baron: The Extraordinary Story of the Russian Nobleman Who Became the Last Khan of Mongolia this week and finding out how wrong an impression that was! This book is not for the faint! Does a great job of filling in missing pieces of world history, in euroasia, I did not get in school. I need not wonder what exactly a White Russian, (no not the drink), is anymore!
Although the visual impressions one gets reading it are very much along the lines of the temple pieces of the above-mentioned Ed Hardy sunglasses. Curious.
My daughter, now in elementary school, says they are not allowed to wear skulls to school. Good!
But just why is Death in vogue?
I get Bomber jackets, looks great, and functional, but skull prints?

& a look at toning up in these last, say 5, years
A few months ago I wrote of how enthused I was to find after a short while of doing 2 or 3 weight lifting routines several times a week, my bra straps no longer made groves, nor bit into my shoulders!
I said I would later post links to which exercises I was doing so that readers could enjoy the same happy shoulder results! Then during the course of the summer, I tried repeatedly, and found no simple web pages to direct you to.
So I looked at the very few exercise books I have kicking around the house. I found, sure enough, I must have gotten it from this one below, as the other one is basic ballet exercise.
Now for me this was just too much reading. I love to read, but where exercise is concerned, I would rather just do it. This is a smallish book too, just 251 pages, including the index. For some reason I cannot do it, this regime, but I must remembered the weight lifting exercises I was doing from leafing through this book.
I guess my inability to read while exercising & / or to follow a regime makes it clear why ice skating worked for maintaining my, at that time, some tone, until my daughter tired of hockey skating and did not want to pursue hockey its self, or any other type of skating.
I guess I have a better chance with my inadvertent Shapeup, see post of 9/8/09, which is based on walking our newly adopted dog. I bet the dog will enjoy walking much longer than my daughter was into ice-skating. I am putting, well have already moved the follow up of that here at Full Figure Women’s Swimwear under Fitting Fitness In.
An fully expected pro of walk the dog fitness is, even though I have been sick since last Fri AM, I still walk the dog, long walks in the AM, about an 45 min. to 1 hour, time permitting. Clothes are fitting better all over! This week the bras and panties have not fit well for years do now! In addition, a dog is just as good company when you are sick as well as feeling fine!
Another unexpected find:
Or is this what they mean by Permanent Weight Loss? Or in my case, Permanent Toned Up?
- Years ago when I first started ice skating regularly, for me, it amounted to approx 1.5 to 2 hours a week, after about 6 weeks, I went to get out of the car one day: I stood up and my jeans remained seated. I have since then worn a Levis, Misses size 14, rather than the previous size 16, jeans. Though I had begun to Feel Out of Shape, since about 1 month since we stopped skating regularly.
- I started wearing Squeems plus size waist cincher, or Fajas the winter of 2007. It brought my waist down to 37”, where it stayed until I started walking our dog.
- Then just a few months ago, I did those weight lifting exercises, did not last for long, our cats come to cuddle with me when I lay down, and I believe the most effective one, (perhaps you’d call it a butter fly?), was done lying down, and the weather got muggy…Regardless, I stopped. Well the shoulder groves are subtle, but though they have returned, are not red, nor sore either.
So I am thinking 2 things,
- Any exercise program, or form of play, that appeals to you, as in Ice Skating, is worth trying for a while. You can still experience long term good results.
- Perhaps it is just improved muscle tone ueto improved posture?

Either style of Fantasie’s Savannah bras are designed to give us fuller busted women’s breast a more forward projection.
I only found two reviews of this bra, in it’s older, black with deeper plunge, style at Her Room. One from a woman who wears a 38GG, who gives it 5 stars for perfect fit and beauty. Another from a woman who wears a 34G, who says it gives fabulous support, yet has an odd shape, and itchy lace. So this time reviews are hard to tell by. Except that this bra does not appear to come in 38GG, unless it did earlier. If not perhaps, it runs large in the cup size?

The inches off the waist, I have read before elsewhere, and again this weekend, in Yahoo’s Health News article What Doctors Wish You’d Do, point 3, about your waist size, getting my waist lower than 35” will be a great health advantage to help avoid heart disease, and diabetes! Well this morning, my waist 34 ½, in about 1 week and 2 days, and I have not seen it under 36 in YEARS!
And I was not even trying! So if you have been thinking of adopting a dog for years, as we had been, and know you will tend to walk it 3 to 5 times a day, say 4 to 7 city blocks, (ours is a small dog), you too might be able to inadvertently loose inches off your waist, and perhaps other places. I did not have time to measure the rest. This is now why we adopted a dog, but it is sure a great-unexpected extra bonus!
If we had adopted a dog I could really run with, I would want to wear a sports bra for most walks. I still like the Enell Sports Bra. However, for less expensive, large cup sports bras, I saw this Shock Absorber support level 4 D+ Sports Bra at both Figleaves, for $37 in sizes 30 to 308D to H and 40D to G.
If you click on its picture below you can check out the reviews or shop it at Figleaves
If you use this picture you can do the same at Her Room.
It gets the same review level at both Fig leaves and Her Room, 3 ½ stars, yet the commentary and usual inclusion of bra sizes in Her Room’s reviews make it easier to get a handle on if this bra will work for you.
At Her Room you will also find this bra was voted the Favorite Plus Size Sports Bra by the judges of the Undies Awards in support level 4, High impact, encapsulation and Compression.
If we adopted a Grey Hound, (I have heard, but never looked into this, that retired racing Grey Hounds need to be adopted.), I would likely try to run a bit with it, and would be trying the sport bra above myself. One reviewer says nothing moves when she runs with that bra on, and another says they dry really fast!
As it happens, we did not want to scare our indoor and outdoor cats, so we wanted a small dog. He can walk at a nice even pace. So you see, even with a small dog, and a bit of small, like 15 to 30 minute walks a day, it turns out you could possibly loose inches. I did step on our scale, but I do not trust it. It seems I am now 165 rather than 170lbs, but it had been a while since I weighted myself. I did however measure my waist the week before we adopted our dog and it was like 36 to 37 inches. I do trust my tape measure.
Oh and there is another health issue about this as per the same above mentioned health article: first point: Learn how to Relax, after the dog is all walked and played out, petting him is as relaxing as petting our kitties, which we still get to do. Watching a happy dog at play is relaxing, and fun too!

This Denim Curvy Pencil Skirt is from Kiyonna’s new arrivals. It has a bit of spandex, but is mostly cotton and polyester and comes in sizes up to 32W
Kiyonna has a wide selection plus size dresses, blouses and nice suit separates too. Unfortunately, their offer does not include Jewerly, Spanx or their Premium Denim. Their Flaunt Cocktail Dress below comes in black, red and navy and gets excellent reviews for its sexy appearance on the women who wear it.
Enjoy this weekend, and its savings of figure flattering clothing for us full figure women!

I have checked this out a bit lately and find, if your size is available in what you want, act fast! In that way this is just like the above mentioned bras in clearance.
Here are two exceptions:
This Panache convertible push up plunge bra is still available in many sizes up to 38G, at 43% off!
Glamorises’ soft cup lightly lined plus size bra below. It is now just $17, half price, available in café and white colors, and in a multitude of sizes: 38 to 56A and B
More typical is the Fantasie bra I had meant to post above, but by the time I got around to it, it was down to 2, neither full figure, nor large cup sizes. A lot of bras there are only avaialble in one size, so shopping by your bra size is the fastest way to shop this section.
Sleepwear on sale!
Did you know Betsy Johnson makes plus size sleep wear? I did not, until I checked out Bare Necessities Outlet. So far I see her sleepwear comes in sizes up to 2XL. Betsy Johnson size 1XL = US Size 14 – 16, size 2XL = US size 18 – 20. This beautiful sheer chiffon baby doll, which comes with matching G-string, is still available in both sizes at 50% off!
If you click on its picture, in Bare Necessities’ right column at this baby doll’s description, is another Betsy Johnson sheer chiffon plus size baby doll, at 30% off, in a dark richly colored black and purple floral.
You will also find this Oscar de la Renta short, robe, finished with shimmery stretch satin and ruffled chiffon. This short robe is designed to fit full figure women, and comes in sizes 1 to 3XL, and it is now 50% off!
Now I am not going to waste any more time looking to see what else is on sale in full figure sizes, while stock disappears.
You can shop by bra size, style department, and brand at Bare Necessities’ Outlet. I will post a link in the right column here, under their clearance link. They are both worth checking out often for great savings sake!
