Suiting Tips from Slink Magazine

Slink magazine has made this excellent video giving us suiting tips for full figures. Nice to know I am not alone in finding getting a good suits, even just a suit jacket, to be a terrible experience. Slink, is a full figure magazine worth checking out!

Don’t have time to watch a video? 

Among the things she suggests are:
  • Suit separates, rather than whole suits, so you get a better fit on both the top and bottom
  • Buy 2 bottoms for each jacket style you find. This creates more ways to wear it and will make that suit last longer
  • A bigger Jacket IS NOT Flattering, just detracts from the shaping you could have gotten with jacket
  • Get a good shoulder fit, and attention to back seam detailing
  • Keep an eye on suits proportion to Your Shape, Shorter women wear shorter jackets
  • A longer neckline is visually flattering in a suit jacket 
I felt these are some pretty good tips, and will likely put a link to this video on our suits page, primarily so I that when the horror of suit shopping revisits me, I will be ready!

25% Off Everything White at Ashley Stewart

You can get this wonderful sale price on all, (really all apparently), white clothing and accessories at Ashley Stewart now! Equally surprising is the styles I looked at so far, like these shown below, are all available in all sizes 12 to 26! I do not think I ever saw that at one of their sales before.

You will find white linen and other suit separates, flowing rayon blouses, white denim, white dresses, pants, shrugs, button downs, jackets and skirts and more, for 25% Off!

This rayon blend top has a subtly stud accented bow, beautiful drape and would dress up jeans or cut offs, or look good with slacks, pencil skirts and is $22.13 at this sale!

 Bow Embellished Tank Top

This voile, (100% cotton), peasant dress with its smocked lace up waist detail will be a flattering for many women. It is just $29.63 at this sale! Likely you can dress this style up or down for some special and casual events and have a comfortable summer outfit!
 Peasant Voile Dress with Lace Up Detail

This skirt, while apparently not actually gored, would appear to have all the advantages of a gored skirt, meaning you move an inch, it moves a foot! Ashley Stewart simply calls it a Full Linen Skirt and is actually a linen / rayon blend. This skirt has a wide waist band and should be a comfy, yet handy addition to ones work or church wardrobe and is $29.63 at this sale.

 Linen Full Skirt

This everything white sale even includes:
  • A straw hat 
  • Rhinestone chain belt 
  • Sheer White Pantyhose 
  • Sunglasses 
  • Sandals 
 as well as a wide variety of apparel.

I believe this sale event ends on 5/20/13 so enjoy it soon.

Panache Full Figure Bras for Less +B1G1 Free deal

Currently you can get 2 of Panache’s top rated full figure bras for the price of one! Not only that, each one you actually pay for is less expensive to begin with!

Panache’s Tango balconette bras are $54 at Bare Necessities, but just $38 at Figleaves, who is having a 2 for the price of 1 on this Panache bra, in its plunge and full cup versions as well, and Panache’s Ariza bras too!

While both stores have these great bras in seven colors, you can click on this bra’s picture to find it for less, and its 2 for the price of 1 offer at Figleaves! They have these in sizes 28 to 40D to K, in this color, and limited sizes, and prices like $26 in some other colors!


I do not know how long this 2 for the price of 1 on select Panache bras deal lasts, but it is one of the great discount you can currently find in Figleaves' Weekly Offers, which you will find on the right side of their horizontal menu bar.

You can find them for less at eBay stores

Using this Panache Tango II Bras, New with Tags at Buy it Now prices link today, I am finding 1454 of them, starting at $13.13!

I would, and have brought bras this way, when confident of my size in each style. I recommend getting them for less at Figleaves, and buy more of styles you love at eBay stores!

It is a great way to save money and have plenty bras you really like on hand, no matter how out of budget they would have been otherwise!
