4th of July Sales have Already Started

1st, I would like to apologize for not posting the excellent discounts and sales you will find at the top of our full figure bras page that have cropped up during the week. I have not been entirely well lately, well about 4 or 5 weeks…. I hope that my doctor will be able to help me with this tomorrow!

Some of the following discounts are at the top of our home page at, some not. There are a few others listed there that I will not get to here today…

Consider this a So Far, listed by the % Off Numbers:

Although Jessica London’s discount has not changed since Monday or Tuesday, so I half expect it to.

Additionally, all of these stores have excellent sale and clearance sections. Some even have new fall styles already!?!

For what it is worth:

Especially if you want a real comfy, supportive bra and wear sizes 42F, today, as they have, apparently one, in this size for just $27!They had a 36F earlier today and I am not surprised at all that it is gone. They also have one for bid, currently up to $9.99 in 42G. I do not bid, but if you like to, this bra is well worth much more than that!

The following link for Elomi’s Hermione full figure bras has been added to my eBay stores watch links for Bras and other intimates in this pages right column:

New Elomi Hermione Bras at eBay stores
This bra has made the pain in my right arm and shoulder somewhat more bearable. At a time when every little bit helps, except there were few possible little bits to help…This bra has been one of the few helpers!
Now I aim to replace my poor, over worn one I am currently wearing. Although, it dose seem to be holding up better than I am!

Enjoy the above savings! I hope that I will be able to keep this posted with others as the actual holiday weekend arrives!

30% Off almost everything at Ashley Stewart

Use code ASFAMILY at Ashley Stewart today and tomorrow to get 30% off!
They have a wide variety of plus size dresses, vividly colored tops, they have, longer than the ones I show on our plus size shorts, but shorter than Bermuda shorts, suit separates, and the rare form fitting linen vest I show on our women’s suits,

and their unique Butterfly Bras! They seem to come in 38 to 44D to DDD sizes, like this strapless one below.
If you need other sizes in large cup and plus size bras, check out the top of our full figure bras page for Figleaves 20% to 50% off sale.

But if you can wear these strapless plus size bras, it would be nice to get them at 30% Off, and they are only $30 to begin with!
If you click on this bra, click on More Views at the bottom of its pictures and you will find Ashley Stewart’s unique Butterfly Bras double back panels. Now there is support you can be sure of! (Now if they would just make them in more sizes!),

If you can dress strapless, and have an hourglass or inverted triangle shaped full figure body, you might like the new rouched off shoulder Dereon top, you can get for 40% off. Both the deal and top are featured at the top of our urban fashion page.

Currently there are three styles of Butterfly Bras, and this one comes with removable straps. The straps on the other two, lace and plunge, styles look so comfy, and they all cost $30.

There is just so many richly colored styles at Ashley Stewart.

Because this is posted as an Online Sale, if you click on their very convertible dress below you will go to their Web Exclusive page.
This dress can be worn 10 different ways, and if you mouse over each of its 10 different colors on the Web Exclusive page, you will get to see all the ways you can style it!

Should you forget to note the 30% off code before leaving this page, or just don’t feel like scrolling up to get it, because I have ran on a bit…,

Just click on the Ashley Stewart name, at the top left corner of their pages, to find it, or after 6/24/11, their current discount.

This offer is good on everything except Clearance Styles and Squeem waist cinchers. It’s too hot to wear Squeem anyway!

Roamans’ Best Styles for $11 each, 4 hrs. only

From 11am until 4pm today, only you can get Roamans’ best plus size fashions for $11 each! Use the link and code given on the page it goes to near the end of this post during those hours and you will find 33 styles that would be fine additions to any women’s wardrobe!

Of the tunics featured their, I have already been eyeing up their Best Selling unique gauze tie-dyed tunics!

Most, of the current 10 available prints are cotton, and most are more vertical, figure friendly, patterns.

This tunic in its Sapphire Tribal print below is the one you will see on the Roamans sale page. It is different from the others in that it is rayon, and has the most horizontal print.

It is hard to really see how the other prints look from their swatches, so I show several more of them on our Unique gauze Angelina Tunics by Roamans page.

Here is one the more vertical print it comes in:

And here it is worn belted in its black and white print. I think it might work belted perhaps even a bit lower than shown, for us inverted triangle shaped women, but I have not tried it yet…

I would like to wear something like this, that I believe the air might even go through, with Lytess leggings, on a summer day and skip the sun screen on my legs!

I especially like the busy prints not just for their ascetic value, but also to hide the inevitable paw prints of our carry me dog Teddy!

You will find a big white boy friend shirt, other nice, loose blouses and tanks and other tops at Roamans’ lunch time sale below!
Lunchtime Flash Sale - Shop our best items at $11.00 each!

If you dream of wearing breezy tunics with lightweight skin conditioning Lytess leggings, that are suppose to shed inches. (I can not follow my erratic use of these close enough to say, but the skin really likes them):

You can sometimes, this is how I buy them, get Lytess legging at a good price at eBay stores! Use this New Lytess Leggings at eBay Stores link to check them out today. I have this link in the right column here al the time too!

They are also having an semi annual clearance, which you will want to shop by your bra size, as it is bras in discontinued colors.

Click on this bras picture and you will see the banner for this final sale across Bra Smyth's page.

Why you would want to shop by your bra size

especially a discontinued colors sale:

A quick of example of why shop by bra size:

At Bare Necessities current sale, my semi-rare bra size
  • Only 2 out of the total 194 bra styles available. Saved a lot of time there!
  • Shopping the above-mentioned Bra Smyth sale by my bra sizes today tells me they have none on sale in my size.
So if you are pressed for time, shopping sales by size is likely the best way to shop!
I do not know how long these two sales last so enjoy them and I hope they have plenty on sale in your sizes!

Comfy, Pleasant to Reapply, Daily Sunscreens I am using

The heat and humidity are rising and I’m out in it no less than 2 hours a day walking our dog! Like you, no doubt, I am now wearing short sleeves sleeveless tops and shorts. We are showing more skin, to the sun, and should take care.

These (AT LONG LAST!), COMFY SUNSCREENS are a Pleasure to Reapply

Hawaiian Tropics Shimmer Effect 40 UVB SPF with UVA
This product absorbs right in, even when sweaty, we do not have central air. During the pup and my hour long walks, it never feels like last years sunscreens did.

Last years felt like a hideous oil, or something, slick, designed to trap in heat and feel gross.

Not so this inexpensive
  • Feels great
  • Looks great
  • No reason not to reapply often sunscreen

It’s mica minerals shimmer subtly, an effect that lasts until you wash, yet never builds up. No matter how much I reapply!

Click on this
Hawaiian Tropic coupon to find a way to make this wonderful sunscreen even more affordable!

With a nod to the fact that I have sun damage on my arms, less so on my legs. So I am trying to use Avon’s Anew Solar Advance 30 SPF UVA/UVB sunscreen.

SADLY, It costs a lot more than the Hawaiian Tropic one above…

For my face, neck and decolletage, I vary a bit, but as it has become more hot and humid:
  • I am relying, perhaps too much on my outback hat and 
  • Garnier’s Skin Renew Anti Sun Damage SPF 28 UVA/UVB.
I only use this from under my glasses down to wear my shirt starts. I HATE SUNSCREEN IN MY EYES. The big hat really helps, I hope!

On the bright side, this sunscreen also absorbs into the skin right away. It does not even get on my glasses!

On the not too bright side, I cannot find it at Garnier’s site, but they do have a 15 SPF version in their very nice, (I use their Moisture Rescue gel-cream, it is just great!), Moisture Rescue line! This version I am currently using, because it feels great, is easy to re apply and I have little doubt their

Moisture Rescue lightweight SPF 15 lotion will be every bit as good.

Look to the bottom of Garnier’s page to find site map and you will find a link to Promotions, under Hot News, that will lead to coupons on their products!

Everything I have read about sunscreen lately says its effectiveness is all a matter of reapplying often.

Given that, the beauty of the above-mentioned product is they all feel great! This makes them a pleasure to reapply!

Plus Size Shorts and Short Shorts on Sale!

Almost all of the plus size short shorts, short rompers and jumpsuits on our new plus size shorts page are on sale! Torrid has a 10% Off your purchase discount you will find in the right column you can use on theirs!

Currently you will find 20% Off select full price summer styles at Dereon! Click on their new blouson shorts and you will find Bermuda shorts, Capri and 3 sleek and sexy short shorts length rompers, at 20% Off!
If you check out Dereon’s Skirts and Shorts link to your left you will find 2 denim short short styles and many other shorts, most of them are on sale at 20% Off!

Rocawear has stylish short rompers you will find in their left column under Dresses and Jumpsuits when you click on their linen short shorts below. These are on sale at about $12 Off and still available in most sizes 14 to 24 in their olive color and down to sizes 14 and 20 in this sunflower color below.
Their denim and mesh short shorts are not on sale, but are still available in size 24. Rocawear, Apple Bottoms and Baby Phat all have plenty of Bermuda shorts and Capri too.

Apple Bottoms now also has denim short shorts you will find near the top of our plus size short shorts page.

I do not know how long this is on, but Baby Phat has good selection of plus size Bermuda shorts, many are currently at 20% Off!
Click on these Belted Bermuda shorts to see them all!
While Baby Phat does not have plus size short shorts yet…

I have worn their plus size jeans in a size 14 for over a year and have recently tried their average women’s size jeans in sizes 13 and now 11.

While I do have only 41 to 41.5 inch hips, I have a, usually, 37 inch waist and 42 inch gut.
The size 13 and 11 Baby Phat jeans FIT!

This is likely due to:
  • My pretty small, as plus and larger sizes go, hips
  • The fact that those jeans have waists just below my belly button, so the 37 inch waist is not a factor.

I will write more about my experiences with Baby Phat’s plus size and average size jeans later.

I only bring this up now to say, if you wear size 14 jeans, it is possible, some styles of average women’s jeans, and therefore shorts and short shorts just might work for you too.

I have not tired their average women’s short shorts yet though…
These zipper waist average women’s shorts appear to have a low waist, and perhaps, extra leg room…
They are still available in sizes 11, 13 and 15, (and smaller sizes)
Click on these short shorts to see Baby Phat’s average women’s shorts and skirts section.
Many, including this style are on sale at 20% Off!
There are some high waist styles, which might not work well for some of use full figure women, so be aware!
If you, like I, have an inverted triangle shaped full figure body, with little in the way of hips you might want to try the larger average women’s sized jeans and pants.
I find they come closer to actually fitting my backside and legs!

What I found while looking for reviews on Kris Large Cup Size and Full Figure Bras

While checking out What’s New at Bigger Bras, to your right, lately I noticed Kris full figure bras and nursing or maternity bras.

Bigger Bras has 5 styles of these beautiful bras. I wanted to find reviews. I looked at Her Room and found an interesting review on a new Lilyette bra you can, currently, read in brief at the top of our full figure bras page.

I found Busty Blues, which offer a slightly different perspective on D+ sizes and the importance of bra fit. They also have reviews, just not of Kris Bras…

I found another beautiful corset I will show down the page a bit too.

Mouse over this Kris Maternity bra to see it’s expansive bra sizes. This bra style comes in a regular version too. The regular style comes in nearly the same bra band and cup sizes!
Click on this bra’s picture to see the Kris Bras at Bigger Bras!
Kris Full Figure and Large Cup Size Bras at

Several things struck me about Kris bras:
  • They come in a wide expanse of bra band and up sizes!
  • The style above, called Brilliant comes in a nice selection of colors!I got so caught up in finding a bra in my size, Elomi’s Caitlyn full figure bras, that came in colors, at the end of April I noticed had no nude of white ones to go with my warm weather tops! & Sapphire is my new black!
  • They are actually shown on full figure women!
  • They come in large and small band and cup sizes, like 30J and 50B!

However I find the price forbidding: $86 to $90 for regular, more for the maternity styles.

It is nice that Bigger Bras still offers 10% off and now 15% off when you sign up for their news letter. That is especially nice, as they do not write often, and when they do they often include another 15% off discount code! That has been my experience as a subscriber to their news letter.

I did Google Kris Bras, and Kris Bras reviews only to find, not much, and no reviews, so far…

One listing mentioned Hips and Curves, so I went to check out their bras and found:
Again, no Kris bras. Not in their bra section, nor in their extended sizes or sale section. I did find this beautiful steel boned corset!
Plus Size Corsets at Hips and Curves
This above floral print corset is an especially unique, yet pricey brand of steel boned plus size corsets you will find in solids, in other styles too at Hips and Curves!

Does anyone out there have any experience with Kris Full Figure Bras?
