Fall Chiffon Tops

Busy lately, I finally had a chance to look into what happened to chiffon tops. I was wondering if we were going to find them in fall styles too. Here is what I found!

Business Casual Blouses

I think some of these tops can be worn at work, under suit jackets and / or cardigans!

This is just a picture, but you can take this Fashion To Figure today and find this blouse in New Arrivals, for $22! That is a typical price for many new styles there! This top has an interesting back detail and comes in sizes 1X to 3X.

You can click on this new shark bit chiffon tunic today and find it, sizes 14 to 32 at Avenue. It is one of their BOGO at 50% off tops today!
South of France Sharkbite Blouse 

You can probably wear this over nice slacks or leggings at some places of business!

Chic, Trendy and Fun Tunics

You can find this in a black print too. This tunic includes both layers, and while it does not say it is chiffon, or georgette even, the top layer does look a bit sheer.

These tops are from Roamans, but you can use the current One Stop Plus text discount link and code in this page’s right column to get them for less!

This is just a picture of these 4.5 star tunics.

These come in sizes M to 4XL and have an adjustable empire waist draw-string.

Both the Roamans style above and this Avenue one below would look great over skinny jeans or leggings!

This knit with chiffon top also comes in black and is on sale now for $30 and still available in sizes 14 to 32 too!

Studded Sharkbite Top with Chiffon Hemline

Special Occasion Styles

This glittery tunic also comes in black / gold / silver, in sizes S to 5XL.

Sequined Illusion Tunic

It is apparently too new for reviews…

So far I am finding more chiffon tops and tunics, (and a tunic / dress!),  at Fashion to Figure in new arrivals than other stores.

Is anyone else interested in these, or is it just me?

Bali’s Satin Tracings Bras, at the best prices

Award Winning Bali Full Figure Bras

Satin Tracings, by Bali Bras has won the Undies Awards, (Favorite Minimizer in 2010), at Her Room and is one of Bare Necessities Top 12 Bras of All Time! While these bras are almost constantly on sale at the above-mentioned and other stores. Who actually has the best price as well as selection of sizes and colors of this excellent bra style?

Regular Stores vs. eBay stores

Many stores have sales and discounts on these bras. Both Bare Necessities and Her Room have them as $38 full price. At this up date, (11/25/14), Her Room includes this style in their Buy 2 Get 1 Free Bali Bras special. While at the same time Bare Necessities has this bra on sale at 30% off. Only eBay Stores , (starting at $12.60), beats the current JMS sale price of $17!

You can use this Bali Satin Tracings, New with Tags, at Buy it Now prices link to view,
today’s (11/25/14), 4071 results starting at $12.60, (that one is a size 50D. Hard to find sizes are often available at eBay stores. More on that below!)!

You can click on this bra’s picture to find it in sizes 34C to DDD, 36 to 44C to G and 46 and 48C to DDD at Her Room, who also has its Undies Awards winning status and often has very useful wearers reviews! They have these bras in 7 colors.

Just My Size usually has them in the same sizes and 7 colors too.

Should you feel that you size is too obscure, or just want to narrow it right down to what is available in your size at eBay stores: 
Today’s example, 36G, shows 39 bras starting at $20!

Which stores are the best to try these are Award Winning Full Figure Bras

You can read many reviews about these underwire minimizer bras at Her Room and JMS, Both have them in the widest size ranges and often the most colors in this bra style.

Bare Necessities also has many reviews about these bras. The latter also have many discounts.
My Favorite Stores for Reviews of these Bras
I like Her Room the best for having, perhaps, (hard to tell, as JMS does not tell us how many), the most reviews.

Her Room, like Bare Necessities, allows reviewers to give their bra size.

Bare Necessities tells you not just how many reviews, but how many of each common pros and cons:

Example: Of the 43 current reviews
  • Pros: 
  • 32 Straps stay in Place
  • 29 High Quality 
  • Cons: 
  • 4 Poor Quality
  • 3 Scratchy Fabric 
There are plenty more pros and cons too…

They also let you sort your reviews in numerous ways:
  • Padding
  • Support
  • Age
  • Sizing 
  • And more, 
  • each having their own pull down menu 
Among those are:
Body Type
where you can choose:
  • Petite
  • Average
  • Curvy
  • or Plus Size 

So for speed of sorting reviews,

I feel Bare Necessities wins!
Another Reason to Try Bali Bras at Bare Necessities
If you click on their picture of this bra, or the one going to Her Room above, you will often, if not usually find deals such as:

a BOGO at 50% Off deal, (that includes these bras),
 + an Extra 20% Off this style Today!
The above is typical of Bare Necessities.
Her Room often simply has them on sale, or part of one deal such as the one stated above its picture at this update.

Unlike Her Room and JMS, Bare Necessities has also carries these bra in band size 50C, D and DD.


Bare Necessities does this quite often with Vanity Fair, Playtex, Bali bras and others. Making it a great place to buy On Sale with a Discount!

  • Shoes + Accessories 
Today and you will find all these departments have Buy One Get One, (of comparable values), at 50% off!

I do not know how long these specials last, but it is great way refresh our fall / winter wardrobes!

  • + no code seems to be involved with the BOGO 50% off styles
  • So you can, no doubt, use this months above-mentioned discount codes to save more on these styles!

More Style Choices with BOGO Discounts

Yes the financial savings are great with discounts!
Not only that, there are those times when we cannot decide.
Times when both style choices have perfectly good advantages.

My favorite for this rational is footwear. No. I only have 2 each pair of sneakers, sandals and tall boots, currently.

Let’s face it though, the more footwear we have, the longer they will last. This is true if we change them every day!

There are other practical arguments for this too, but back to the style dilemma…
Example: 2 BOGO 50% Off Boot Styles
Say you love both ankle boots and tall boots.
Or you just like either, but want them in both
sleek, buckle, western or slouch…heels or flats…black, brown or other colors.

This is a great way to extend your boot choices at less than half the price of at least one style. Utilizing both the BOGO special with the current Avenue discount code!

Both of these, and All of Avenue’s boots and shoes, are part of this BOGO special

These ankle boots come in cognac as well in sizes 8 to 13 in wide widths, for $64 Connie Belted Bootie

These slouch boots come in black, cognac and grey in the same sizes, for $68! Bridget Tall Slouch Boot

Having a variety of ankle and tall boots expands your style choices for each outfit!
Practical Reason for Fresh Footwear Each Day
So you can:
  • Contribute to the health of your feet and Achilles tendons, (alternate heels with flats)
  • Let the inside of your shoes and boots dry out
  • Thus keeping your feet cleaner, drier and more comfy 
  • Besides lasting longer on the heel and outer sole, 
These are great reasons to have fresh footwear daily.
Deals like Avenue’s above make it much easier to do this!
