CowCow Plus Size 2.0!

images.jpg

I was chosen as a 2017 Cow Cow Plus Size Ambassador! This is my second time working with Cow Cow and you can see my first post from 2016 in my archives. As a Plus Size Ambassador I was gifted 5 apparel items and naturally I went with mostly dresses! Because all products are made from a very stretchy mix of spandex and polyester, the dresses are my favorite rather than leggings or tops. For those not familiar with Cow Cow it is a unique online clothing company specializing in all over print. Anyone can design a print and send it to be sold on their site! There are literally 1,000’s of prints and products. Though I am partial to their dresses they have all types of clothing for men, women and kids and also bags, magnets, mugs, shoes, and more.

Black Cat Dot Skater Dress, 3XL: The skater dress is my favorite style from Cow Cow because I love how it hugs my waist and flares at the hips. I could wear a skater dress everyday in the summer, its so comfortable and cute. I prefer the sleeveless like above. This design is unique because it has the different print on top, an oddity for Cow Cow so I was so excited when I found it. Plus its freaking adorable. Meow Meow!

Sweet Pattern Sleeveless Skater Dress, 3xl: Last order I got a donut dress that I got so much amazing feedback on so I knew I needed another sweet treat print! This one I fell in love with because of how light and girlie it is. Again perfect for a summer day or night. I got a 3XL again and it fits perfect. The dress hugs my chest and waist to show off my figure while flaring out at the hips where I need more room anyway. It sits just above my knee which I like, especially since I’m only 5’3.

Skeleton Pattern Lace Up Front Bodycon Dress, 3XL: This LACE UP bodycon was a new one I found on Cow Cow and I LOVE IT. I have one other bodycon that is super sexy and tight, but this was with corset like lace up on front is amazing and constructed nicely. These lace up detail is so cute and actually does a little cinching. I do not have it pulled tight in these photos, because leaving as is was more comfortable. I highly recommend this bodycon style because it is the perfect little dress for nights out. Dress it up with heels and a cute clutch. I felt like a total sex bomb in this number. As a bodycon it is of course tight all over, but the fabric that is used for all Cow Cow items is super stretchy.

Black Skeleton Cap Sleeve Dress, 3XL: Apparently I wear a lot of black. HAHA I knew this already but now here is more proof. I found this fish print and just had to have it! Especially since it was on a black background. This dress is just like the skater dress expect a little less flare in the bottom and has short sleeves. Personally, I hate sleeves but I wanted to try them. They are a bit tight on me, which is what I was worried about, but it wont stop me from wearing this. Maybe I have XXXL arms, I’m not sure…

Small Christmas Red Polka Dot Hearts On Snow Bikini, 3XL: I GOT A STRING BIKINI! This is a major FIRST!

I have never owned anything but fatkinis, but I said “Fuck It” I want to do this all the way! So I found the cutest smallest polka dot bikini. HEART polka dots! How insanely cute. This bikini is made very well, it even has small pad in cups so its not just fabric. No support or lift, but that is the style of top I picked out. The bottoms tie great and hold up just fine. Made very sturdy for such small items. I will be rocking this on vacation!

Thank you Cow Cow for exceeding my expectations with these fun prints and great stretchy garments! I cant wait to explore your website again for find fun and unique prints. Again I wore a 3xl in all items above. I am a 20/22 and 5’3. I suggest sizing up if you are in between sizes because this fabric does hug all your curves, but always for stretch.

Plus Size line Curvy Sense Review

I seriously have to gush over Curvy Sense! So many positives with this company that I don’t know where to start. The styles of course are amazing, you can find causal cute T’s or sexy bodysuits. They literally have everything a girl could want on their site. Even bikinis and swimsuits. Plus their prices are AMAZING! Normally you get what you pay for, but their low prices give you very high quality garments. All three items I received from Curvy Sense came in great shape and were very well made. (Bonus most items are made in the USA) I’m no gentle little lady so I do give my clothing some serious wear, so quality is a necessity. I was especially impressed with the stitching and overall construction of all my pieces. All were flawless and thicker than a normal $20 item.

Plus Size Accordion Cross Front Bodysuit- Size 3x- $@3.00

This bodysuit gave my girls all the love up top! I always enjoy cleavage so I was excited about a V neck cross front bodysuit. The straps were adjustable also which is great because I am short and often need to change my straps. The bodysuit fit perfect in every spot! The fabric is stretchy and I had plenty of room so I was comfortable. I paired this bodysuit with a Forever21 tulle skirt and chunky Torrid wedges. Obviously this outfit shows some skin so it is perfect for the summer! I would wear this out on the town or on a Saturday at the lake. Dress it up with some jewelry and you have yourself one sexy look!

The second bodysuit was different than my usual style, but its good to get out of the norm, right? I do love the royal blue and how well it was made just like my other items from Curvy Sense. I went with a sleek dark denim jegging from Torrid and heels for this bodysuit. I planned on wearing it solo, but the booty didn’t fit like I imagined. It wasn’t full coverage nor was it a thong- it was in the middle, showed a little cheek. I did really enjoy the asymmetrical straps on the bodysuit. Very bold and different especially pared with blue. I would wear this out to lunch with friends or a weekend shopping, but again it could be easily dressed up.

Plus size Color Block Bodysuit-Royal Blue, size 3x, $21.00

 

Last and my absolute favorite (thought I’m partial to dresses) is the SEXY Plus Size Frill Bodycon dress in RED! They also carry this same dress in mint on the website. At $29.00 I am saying everyone should own this dress. One because everyone needs a sexy red dress and because it fits like a glove, is a great price, and is actually really comfortable. I was highly impressed that the bust area had a sculpted wire. I have a lot of sexy V neck dresses but none have a wire to hold fabric into shape. This knit material was stretchy and also hugged my curves so good. The off the shoulder ruffle detail was another highlight with this dress. The ruffles laid perfect and didn’t overpower the look. The I felt like a total sexpot in this dress and was really comfortable!

FIVE KISSES FOR CURVY SENSE

Lineage Wear – Ethical, Sustainable, Inclusive

I am a HUGE legging fan and am always looking for the best. I wear leggings a lot, to work or the gym, running errands on the weekends, or relaxing at home. When I saw Lineage leggings I knew I had to try them. I was very happy with what I found on their website. Not only do they have fun unique prints, but these babies are made to last and for everyone! All leggings are made in NYC with high quality fabrics and in an environmentally friendly process. From printing to shipping Lineage does everything possible to keep the company green and local.

Inclusive

As a plus size woman who works out it is difficult finding workout wear I am comfortable in. I don’t need all my bits bouncing around when I am active, I need some control especially in my stomach and butt. Lineage has got me covered with their sturdy but breathable spandex.  Lineage is an inclusive company meaning they have sizes for everyone! When I say everyone I mean it, they have sizes XS – 5X! (Plus they have cut kid and wee baby leggings to match mommas!) I was gifted a size 3X ankle legging and a 2X tank top, both fitting perfect! I am glad I went up to a 3X in the legging because they do run a bit small and are of course form fitting. With plenty of stretch and length these leggings were great to wear all day. All the Lineage leggings are made with a thick spandex material with tons of stretch and strength. Also all styles have a extra high waist which is a must for all leggings I wear.

www.Lineagewear.com says it best:

“These leggings have been specifically engineered to withstand stress, flatter the body, and prevent common complaints:

  • Lightweight, moisture wicking- no sweat marks
  • Extra high waist – no jiggle, no muffin top
  • Contoured shape – no yanking, no saggy crotch
  • No center seam and an angled inseam – no camel toe
  • Coverstitched hem- no binding elastic”

Lineage also has other goodies including light weight breathable tanks, tees, and now offer leggings as shorts! As summer approaches I know shorts will be my next go to.  I certainly recommend these leggings for all activities from walking to lifting weights. They have comfort, stretch, durability and high quality! Plus so many cute and fun prints with new ones popping up often.

Cow Cow!

Yes I said Cow Cow! Yes that is really the companies name and they sell everything! Cow Cow is a company that celebrates creativity and individuality. On Cow Cow you can upload your own art work and have it printed on just about anything! From a cell phone case to a bodycon dress they offer all types of products and  100% customization.  I have seen many other plus size babes do reviews on their dresses and leggings, because they have so many wild prints and large sizes.

I got 5 items from Cow Cow and LOVE 3 of the 5. I am partial to dresses but wanted to try a variety of items from Cow Cow. I am a huge fan of all the wild and unique prints offered. You can find anything from monkeys to pineapple print. I even found my favorite animal, the sloth! Seriously if you can think of it Cow Cow can make it and at great prices.

IMG_20170314_165149.jpg

Dress Style: Sleeveless Bodycon size 2XL

This is for sure one of my favorites! It fits great and is very form fitting like a bodycon dress should be. I feel sexy and equally badass in this skull print. The length is perfect on me, but I am short (5’3). I would wear this on a night out dancing or a night I am looking to turn heads. Pair with heels or black boots and you would certainly make a statement.

IMG_20170314_165429.jpg

Dress Style: Racerback Sloth design size 2XL

You might notice its a bit hard to tell this is in fact a sloth. I was disappointed that the sloths head goes into my armpit, so not the best placement. Also, I wish I had gotten this in 3XL as it does feel too tight. After looking more closely at the size chart on Cow Cow I do fit better into a 3XL per their measurements. Otherwise this dress, like the rest was sewed perfectly and comfortable.

IMG_20170314_165401.jpg

Dress Style: Skater dress with sleeves, size 2XL

I absolutely love this print! I don’t wear much white but this was the perfect combination of black and white. My only issue with this dress is the sleeves are very tight. I would have sized up to a 3XL if I had known the sleeves would be so snug. Otherwise the length, neckline, pattern, and all stitching was excellent!

IMG_20170314_165317.jpg

Top:Sleeveless tunic size 2XL

I love the purple in this  and it is exactly the color I pictured online. This top is a bit tight but the length is great so it works well with leggings or jeans. I wore this as a very casual look but you could easily dress this up with black slacks or cute jeans with heels or boots. So many options for this top.

Full Length Leggings, size 2XL

These have great stretch and coverage. The fabric, like all the pieces I have showed, is made of 90% polyester and 10% spandex so the stretch is great! They do come up high, past my belly button, like I wear my leggings so I enjoyed that as well. I have not worn these more than a few times so I cant comment on how long they last but I feel with this material they will not split in the thighs like so many other brands do.

DSC_0044

Dress style: Sleeveless Skater Dress, 2XL

This is my absolute favorite and not just because I LOVE donuts but because it fits perfect and you can twirl in this to flare out bottom. This would be a casual dress to me mainly because the pattern but you could dress up any of these up with a sexy pair of boots or heels. To me the donuts and lilac color make me think of summer so I cant wait to wear this in the nice weather.

I suggest ordering from Cow Cow if you love bold designs that can be found know where else! Cow Cow offers literally every clothing item including mens, womens, kids, and babies. There is swimwear, tank tops, skirts, capris and tons of dress options. When ordering remember the polyester / spandex material and how it will cling to your body. If you don’t enjoy tight clothing order a size up from your usual.

Check out Cow Cow to see ALL the options and designs available. Or upload your own design on any item. Some Cow Cow items are also available on Amazon. Also, Look for some great discounts on Instagram @cowcow !

Corsettery Photoshoot

I recently had the pleasure of working with Corsettery; a US based, authentic corset brand.  This was my first opportunity to try out a piece by Corsettery and they absolutely impressed me in every possible way!

From style, to fit, to shipping time and their communication, it was all perfect and professional. I gave them an idea of what I was looking for and they gave me so much more in return.

The quality of the corset is absolutely top notch. Corsettery used gorgeous velvet fabric and sturdy steel boning. Note, steel boning in any corset is of the utmost importance! This particular corset is an over bust with eight steel bones all around. Unlike many over bust corsets I have tried, this one actually lifted my chest up making me look & feel fabulous for photos.

Corsettery was also very accommodating to my custom plus size measurements and my requests when it came to styling my outfit.  They were happy to fit my unique size, which is especially great for plus size ladies looking for a well made, custom fit.

The skirt was also made by Corsettery and it was made to show an open or closed slit with plenty of fabric to use as you see fit. Whether to swirl around in the freezing snow or command attention like the Gothic queen you are!

I just can’t say enough good things about the team over at Corsettery. They were very prompt and sent my items in safe secure packaging. And my package arrived much earlier then I expected, plus it fit perfect! I can’t wait to work with  Corsettery again!

 Thank you again Corsettery for making my gothic dreams come true!
