My Review of The Ultimate Cargo Short

Originally submitted at

Get on trend in these pigment dyed cargo shorts with just enough hardware to stand out!

  • Single button with zip closure. Reinforcement button. Front slanted pouch pockets. Double button coin pocket detail. Back buttoned pockets. D-ring tabs at cuffs. Woven. Imported.
  • C...

Excellent, even with small pockets

By Annie from NJ on 7/30/2010


4out of 5

Waist: Feels true to size

Length: Feels true to length

Pros: Washes Well, Flattering, Comfortable, Nice Color, Breathable, Versatile, High Quality, Stylish

Cons: Pockets a tad small

Best Uses: Perfect summer weight, Casual Wear

Describe Yourself: Casual Dresser

I tried a pair. They wore and washed well. The perfect summer weight of the fabric of these shorts made me buy them in all the colors that were left in my size. I would like bigger back pockets, but then it gets me to use a purse more, which I really should anyway. I tend to put every thing in my pockets, leave the purse at home, and it makes for a bulkier appearance. So these shorts are not only great hot weather comfort wise, they are making me improve my look!

Elomi’s Caitlyn side support Full Figure Bras

These side support bras come in band sizes 34 to 46, and in cup sizes up to JJ!
I like the colors they come in, their great reviews! I put excerpts of some of my favorites reviews at the bottom of our Elomi's Caitlyn side support Full Figure Bras article.

There are at least 2 places you can get them at 10% off! Which is nice because they have a standard price of $50 for the bras, their matching panties are usually $26.

Even better, you can use this New Elomi Caitlyn Bras at eBay stores link to find, currently, 313 of these bras starting at $31, or $21 if you want to bid!

These pretty bras, and matching panties, at 10% off!
You can find them at Bigger Bras, use their 10% off code on the right side of their pages
You can use the Bare Necessities 10% link to shop them there, and Elomi lingerie is not excluded from that offer! Bare Necessities has these bras in this pretty sapphire blue below! Other colors too!

I wanted to try the Keira Goddess Bras below;

However, I need a smaller band size than they come in. Then I noticed this Caitlyn bras, it appears to have similar side support and reviews. I have really wanted to try a daily-wear side support bra.

The Caitlyn comes in band sizes of 34 inches, the Keira bras start at 36. If you have had s similar problem with full figure bras, need smaller band sizes, you are not alone!

Now a brief note about accessories

If you are full busted, especially if you are wearing modest tee shirts, as I often do, we really should wear scarves and / or necklaces. I am kind of shy, and picky, so I almost never do this…

However, I like Baby Phat’s logo cat. Their prices make at least considering wearing it more possible! This Cat Photo Etched necklace below is just $17.50. I love their earrings too. I really should wear earrings. I wear my hair up in a tight ponytail quite often. Could use a little sparkle there…

If you click on this Cat Necklace picture now, it will go to their Accessories page, where you can see a beautiful video of their charm bracelet charms! My daughter and I love these little charms. Though I do believe, it is the first time she has ever taken notice of charm bracelets at all…
I really like a lot of the jewelry at Their bronze shield necklace below would really fill the negative space my modest t-shirts leave me with…

But if I timid out of wearing my long rectangular Klimt silk scarf that I have had for years…well I would likely be to shy to wear a bronze shield necklace too….Have to work on that!

Silhouettes, who like most other stores featured at Plus Size Women’s Clothing, have always had some excellent accessories now has fine jewelry!

They have some nice pendants, more sedate than the shield above; sadly, you have to buy the chain separate, for their pendants…unless you already have a chain that goes with a given pendant already!

At least you can save on their fashions and now fine jewelry using this discount below!

Free Shipping* on orders $75 or more

An Eye Makeup I must tell you about!

This has actually done much to improve my appearance;
  • Even though it is summer
  • Even though I rub my eyes quite often!
Anastasia’s Brow Wiz.

I go mine at a Sephora in a mall, I am not finding this Anastasia eyebrow pencil at their online store anymore though.

This is a very fine mechanical pencil, with a spooley brush at the other end.
You can draw right on your own, pale in my case, eyebrows, then blend with the brush, and it stays there through all the sweating I have been doing these days!

If you have pale eyebrows, you gotta try this.

I have tired to do the same with drug store brands for years, and I finally gave up.

The pencils were just not fine enough, but this one is perfect!

40% and 20% off Baby Phat and Dereon Urban Fashion Today!

As these discounts do not show up at Baby Phat and Dereon, (They both have other discounts at their sites though…), And as there is not discount code, I have to assume it’s use the link, order and see the discount as you check out.

Baby Phat does have another discount running, which you can find out about at the top of our urban wear page, this 40% off one below is just for today!

Today Only! Take 40% Off All Sale Merchandise at Baby Phat. Offer Valid on 7.22.
I have been playing around with it for a while and have to assume the 40% comes off as you check out. I check out my budget and decide if I can buy today before I test this. If it does not, call their customer service! I have in the past and they are pleasant to deal with!
I really like these Baby Phat knit jeans, (and their knit denim Capri, also on sale!), They are very comfy, have deep pockets and are a sale item the above discount might apply to. Sadly, they are only available in sizes 18 and 20 now…
Dereon’s 20% off any sale one item is equally not apparent, but when you get there, to Dereon, you will find a Take 40% off all sale items, site wide!

Take 20% Off Any One Item at Dereon's Diva Thursdays! Offer Valid on 7.22 Only.

Apple Bottoms The Sale on Sale Event - Buy 2, Get the 3rd Free On All Sale Merchandise. Offer Valid from 7.8 - 7.22. deal ends today…

And Torrid’s Additional 50% off All Clearance: July 21 - July 25 starts today.

Clearly, these stores are trying to move their trendy plus size fashions along to make way for their new fall lines!

At Baby Phat, (quite possibly at Dereon, Apple Bottoms and Rocawear too!),I know for a fact, if you order before 2 pm est., you get same day shipping, at standard shipping prices, as I was pleasantly surprised!

Therefore, you can get your warm weather fashions for less and wear them for most of the summer too!

Don’t miss the summer sale and discounts at Silhouettes!

See the bottom of this post for Silhouettes free shipping offer, and check out their, up to 70% off, Summer Sale!

I did it again… Had my eye on this red bandana shirt at Silhouettes below, and now it is out of stock! I usually do this with Baby Phat and Silhouettes clothing…But is still available in four other prints! Still I wanted the one below.
Wrinkle-Resistant Short-Sleeve Shirt
Fortunatley I recalled an eBay store who carries Silhouettes fashions. Quality Women's Plus Size Clothing at eBay!
I have no idea if, or when, the bandana shirt above will show up there. Or if it will show up in my size. I did find the two other colors of a layered look polo shirt I have been wearing out in the color I got mine in! Sadly, I got mine a couple of years ago. On the bright side, if it takes a couple of years for the bandana print shirt to show up, I will likely still want it!
Silhouettes is having their summer sale, like most of the stores you will find at Use the code in this banner to enjoy Free Shipping on orders of $75, as well as their markdowns!

Free Shipping* on orders $75 or more

I wear Silhouettes fashion, and have for years. They are generously cut and durable!
If you think you will shop Silhouettes often, scroll down to the bottom of any Silhouettes’ pages to check out their Buyers Club. You can enjoy 10% off every order if you are in their Buyers Club!

Some unique Full Figure Bras on sale lately

As Figleaves sale has reached its final reductions stage, I figure I’d share with you some of the unique bras I’d try if they came in my size, (HH to JJ cup sizes)!

I especially like this Samantha bra by Curves below. For a long time now it has only had 1 review, which complains about the forgiving upper cup and rigid lower cup. This is the exact same quality I enjoy in my Fantasie favorite Mariette large cup bras!
These bras are now just $21 and still available in sizes 36, 38 and 40C, 34, 36 and 38D and 42DD.
This Triumph bra is on sale in, apparently all 5 colors, for just $32. Sadly it only comes in sizes up to 32 to 38A to F, and it gets very mixed reviews…
But it is similar to Lavinia’s best selling Balcony Push Up Bras, which come in sizes 32B to E and 34 to 40B to F, in white, beige and black, has excellent reviews, but it is $50…

Lavinia has newer wire free large cup size bras which have a similar balcony shape too. They are a bit less expensive and come in sizes 36H, 38DD, DDD and G, and sizes 40DDD, G and H.

OK, I got off topic here…

Lots of the bras I have posted near the top of our full figure bras page lately are bras at this sale I though were noteworthy, Like the Faubourg 183 cottony full figure bras I have shown here before.

Although sizes are limited, they are still more plentiful than the sizes of bras on sale at Bare Necessities new sale event.

The Figleaves sale has been on for quite a while, and is bound to end soon. So we should take advantage of it while we can!

I do not know about you, but I am reluctant to buy without size charts. Dereon and Rocawear, who both have styles I would love to try, do not give us size charts.
I am going to write them about this and explain about it inhibiting my likelihood of buying from them.

I Know some of the reasons I love these urban fashion styles is that:
  • They are shown on full figure women
  • Back, or front, with regards to jeans, Capri and shorts, views are usually available
  • Unique stylesSales and discounts that make these styles affordable
  • New twists on classic styles

If only Rocawear and Dereon would handle their size chart problem! Then I would try their styles at these sales!

Sales and discounts, especially like what Baby Phat has going, such as the ones these stores have on today make the unique urban wear styles of these stores nicely affordable!
