My Favorite Summer Dresses!

I am an avid dress fan and have been since I realized my curves look great in dresses. Pants have ALWAYS been a struggle, so leggings and dresses are my favs. In summer I usually wear a dress 3-5x a week. I dream of a closet just for dresses! HAHA You get my point, I LOVE dresses. So here are some of my fav that I’m currently wearing. Enjoy!

Torrid size 2 Hi Lo floral dress

I love hi-lo dresses, I think they are cute and fit my body well. I never have to worry about my ass hanging out either! I would wear this casually on the weekend or with a cover up to work.

Torrid size 2 Pineapple Skater dress- Hot pink

I have a million skater dresses! The cut is so flattering to anyone because it accentuates your small waist.  This is another causal look for me but you can dress it up easy with heels or a necklace. From the office out to dinner and drinks would be easy in this.

Forever 21 size 3x Bodycon Dress

BadaBing Badaboom! This bodycon is defiantly for a night out dancing and shaking it! I used to be nervous about my belly in bodycon dresses, but not anymore. I rock that shit and no one can tell me otherwise. If you were nervous like me go try some on! I promise you’ll start getting into the bodycons. They make you feel like a total babe!

What are your favorite summer dresses?

Love your Thighs in Thigh Society Shorts!

Logo

All of us plus ladies know the agony of chubrub! And if you don’t, I envy you! Seriously, this is one thing I am actually self conscious about. Because of my thighs rubbing I get dark spots and sometimes breakouts. I hate it! I have used powders, deodorants and spanx. In the end no chemical has lasted more than 30 minutes and shorts get so sweaty and therefore hold moisture in which rubs my thighs.
 

Size 2x High Rise Black Short

Thigh Society shorts really are unique. They are not spanx, they are lightweight and VERY comfortable. The moisture wicking material is comfortable on the skin and breathable.  Thigh Society shorts keep you dry, so you never have to worrying about leaving a wet mark on a chair or pulling them off with pliers. haha

Product-Explenation_Grey3_f5b6aada-7796-4d00-af15-779a5f28f5ea_1500x.progressive

Thigh Society shorts come in three styles and three colors that run from a size S-4XL.  All are sold for $34.00, a good price for a quality product that lasts. The three styles have varying lengths at the waist: Mid Rise, High Rise, and Ultra High Rise. I prefer my underthings to go over my belly button, so I got the high rise shorts and they fit great!

Get yours at www.ThighSociety.com ! 

Five kisses for this fabulous product! I’m looking forward to seeing more from Thigh Society!

Curvy Kate now shipping to the US!

I have been eyeing Curvy Kate Lingerie for at least a year. As soon as I started seeing photos of the gorgeous sets and heard about the large array of sizes I’ve wanted to get these pieces on my body! Finally my wishes came true and Curvy Kate now ships to the US!

I was gifted three sets from Curvy Kate and am very impressed with the quality, styles, and fit! Each set was a different bra or panty style and I seriously loved them all. If you have never checked out Curvy Kate’s bras the first thing to know is they have a vast variety of sizes. They specialize in large cups that run D- K! Band sizes run from 28-44. Do note that they are a UK company so make sure to check your size in UK sizing. Band width will be the same in US and the UK, but cup size does differ!

IMG_2060
42D Daily Dream Padded Balconette Bra. Size UK 22 cheeky short
IMG_2095
Bra $65 Panty $36

The aqua set was the most comfortable for daily wear. I wore this set the entire day of my shoot and it felt great. The fabric was extra soft and had a decent amount of stretch. The bra also had padding, which I prefer for good coverage on a daily bases.

IMG_2110
42D Vegas Balconette Bra, Size UK 22 Vegas Brazilian Brief
IMG_2118
Bra $66, Panty $35

Can we talk about how much I love mesh! It is so sexy and feminine, so these panties felt amazing! The brazilian cut hugged my ass perfect leaving very little to the imagination. This is a great set to show off, perfect for a special date night. This set will make you love the way you look.

42D Ellace Balconette Bra, Indigo and size UK 24 Ellace Brazilian, Indigo

IMG_2220

This blue set is also just stunning! This bra does not have any padding so I would not wear it daily, but it would fit great with a silky dress for an evening. Full lace panties hug my hips perfect and cover my ass just enough. Again this piece made me feel so sexy and is meant to be shown off.

Check out Curvy Kate here!

I cannot wait to try more from Curvy Kate ! They also offer swim wear and an additional lingerie selection called Scantilly, which is a bit more R rated. US ladies I promise their items are worth the money! If you are nervous to order from a UK brand, do not be! Contact customer service and they will guide you to the correct size and make suggestions. I can’t say enough what a lovely and friendly company this is. Plus, they strive for all ladies to have sexy well fit lingerie!

Hips & Curves Lingerie

hipsncurves

Finding lingerie that is not only high quality, fabulous and affordable is tricky.  That’s why I’m fortunate to have Hips & Curves as an advertising partner. Curvy ladies between sizes 10-28 who love lingerie or just want to spice things up; must check out this brand!  California based, this lingerie company has been catering to curves since 2000. From beautiful bra and pantie sets to racy costumes, Hips & Curves has it all! One of my favorite things about Hips and Curves, other then the fact that they cater to plus sizes, is the diversity. They offer so many everyday lingerie items and even more delicious delights.

DSC_6973

I had the pleasure of posing for the talented Rachel Schwebach in my gifted Hips and Curves lingerie. I cannot emphasize enough how comfortable these sexy pieces were! It is so rare to find a full piece that is actually comfortable and sexy.

I started in with the cozy cotton sleep shirt in a size 2xl. It fit perfect and was very light weight with just a hint of see through sex appeal. This is not an item I would normally go for because generally I say less is more, however this was a great change for me and I felt stunning. Who doesn’t appreciate a beautiful woman in a all white dress shirt? It screams “I am a total sexpot!” This shirt specifically is excellent because the light weight material and versatility. You can turn the heat up with being nude underneath or wear a bra and pantie set under. Then the next night you have it for a cozy sleep shirt.

Camille Strappy Lace Panty 2X In Black

Paired with the sleep shirt I wore the Camille Strappy Lace pantie in a 2xl. I am a big fan of any strappy lingerie, I think straps beautify a woman’s curves. Also, they hug my cheeks great giving them just the attention needed and bringing all eyes to it.

DSC_6921

The Solange Lace Chemise is everything! The lace up each side is such a beautiful detail that I have not seen in other chemises. The piece has plenty of room but also has some hold. Plus the cups lift and hold up the girls so well! There is nothing worse that a sexy piece of lingerie with no support- but don’t worry that is not the case here! FULL SUPPORT FOR THE LADIES!

Solange Lace Chemise 42 Medium Cup In Black

I added an extra touch to my full outfit by pairing my favorite thigh highs by Kixies and the caged pantie from above. I love the look of the cage showing through just enough to get the mind going. I didn’t want to take this outfit off! I would suggest this exact chemise for anyone. It works for any woman because it has coverage but also shows the perfect amount of skin. Its the an absolutely perfect balance for any woman to feel comfortable in.

Hips & Curves is offering a fabulous 20% off for all my blog readers and fans now through Saturday. All you have to do is follow this link  20% off or use the code “AshleeLove”.

Torrid Lingerie Love

Audrey-Hepburn-meme

If you know me you know that Torrid is in my top 3 favorite stores! I say this without any hesitation. And this is not a paid post- I just feel every plus size woman should try Torrid’s clothes and lingerie. I am always a size 2 in Torrid to give you a reference, plus their sizes never change like some brands. I can count on being a 2 always. In jeans I’m a 22 or dresses that size in that fashion I’m a 22. Anyway I want to talk my favorite current lingerie looks from Torrid. Sadly, I can’t afford them all so stock photos will have to suffice…..this is very saddening for me as I truly want a walk in closet of Torrid lingerie. hehe A girl can dream.

pink
Smooth Plunge bra and microfiber panty set

This is my go to everyday favorite set! I LOVE the feel of the microfiber panties plus they are sexy. Paired with the smooth push up and my girls are held up all day! This does give you cleavage so if you are not going for that I would suggest another style of bra. But Torrid has A LOT of styles so don’t worry you will find one you love.

skulls
Floral Skull Print Microfiber & Lace Racerback Bralette & Floral Skull Print Lace Up Microfiber Cheekster Panty

Now this is a comfortable and sexy set! Every woman should try a bralette because they are some comfortable and insanely popular. Even better they work well for all sizes from small to very large breasts. And again did I say how comfortable they are?

lace.jpg
Lace Bralette Babydoll

I would sleep in this lace babydoll every night if I could! It is so comfortable and light. I’m always warm, so the least amount of sleepwear is best. This is great because you are covered but also still look sexy.

red
Lace and Mesh Longline Bralette set

I cant have a lingerie post with out some red hot sexpot sets! And this is it! Damn I need this in my life. Can I just lounge around in bed wearing this, being fed chocolate covered strawberries? Ok ok I’ll stop fantasizing, but seriously this number is FIERCE! Want to wake your husband up from the typical monotony then put this set on and just walk in the damn room. If he doesn’t get fired up quick them you better walk on outside and leave him drooling. High wasted panties and longline bras are VERY in-style and perfect if you want to cover some belly. Add red mesh and lace = mind blowing sex appeal!

ONLINE- BOGO 50% OFF* REG. PRICE

Feel free to shop through my blog as I do have affiliate links to Torrid, like the one above. I have tried so many types of lingerie from Torrid so ask me if you have any! Plus I love talking lingerie.

The Pampered Period Box

PPBox

20170505_172659           20170505_172540

My May subscription box review is all about The Pampered Period Box! As you might have noticed I’m loving female specific subscription boxes lately. This box really caught my eye because the large amount of items you get and its not only items for your period. I would suggest this box to ladies who do not menstruate as well. The Pampered Period Box is more about providing women with items and techniques to practice self care. In fact my box didn’t even come with pads or tampons, but was FULL of great items for me to indulge myself in. The box came packaged with beautiful details to make it extra special. I loved the cute postcard with the cinnamon stick and rose petals that filled the box.

20170505_172940

My Pampered Period Box came with so many luscious goodies! I just kept unpacking items, it was great! My favorite items included a large notebook, a cute makeup bag, a TonyMoly mask, and two bath bombs! I am obsessed with baths so I can never have enough bombs.

20170505_173228      20170505_173014     20170505_173147

Also included in was liquid B12, which I have never used. After reading the information sent with my pampered period box I learned simply adding the B12 to a drink daily can help keep my nerves and red blood cells healthy.

A unique add to my box was a delicious recipe for a chocolate smoothie. Other drinks included a  box of calming flow tea and several packets of electrolyte mix. This box had hydration covered!

20170505_173122

What is a period box without some chocolate!? My Pampered Period Box came with four yummy squares to nibble on while you relax in the bath wearing your TonyMoly mask. After the bath try the Beauty Works Shea butter lotion and continue your evening of relaxation with the candle burning through the night. This is certainly a relaxation self care box. I could get used to receiving all these treats once a month. No need to go to the store for your girlie goods, just sign up for the Pampered Period Box!

What’s in the box each month? Finely curated items for menstrual health and self care. each month is different. You don’t have to have a menstrual cycle to enjoy this box!

Price? $57 per month

Why? Because you need to indulge yourself from time to time. And 10% of every purchase goes to Girls Helping Girls Period Organization.

Tempt Boudoir

temptIf you have never been professionally photographed now is the time! What are you waiting for? Seriously, being fawned over and groomed like a queen makes you feel amazing. I think EVERYONE should have a boudoir shoot at least once in their life. Do it for the photos, do it for your partner, do it for new lingerie, but most important do it for yourself!
I have the best time shooting with the lovely ladies at Tempt Boudoir in Indianapolis. They make me feel very comfortable, are always encouraging and even position me so I don’t have to think about a thing! Tempt is a company based on making ALL women feel special. Yes I have modeling experience but many ladies they work with do not. They will supply you with professional hair and makeup, style guides, and pose coaching during the shoot. Anyone can do a boudoir shoot, if just takes the effort of putting yourself out there.

Tempt has affordable prices with three gracious packages that all include a one on one consultation with photographer Robyn, full hair and makeup styling by Bri, and professional retouching. Each package offers a different amount of digital images to you. I love that all three packages include hair and makeup, because on your big shoot day that is the last thing you want to worry about handling yourself. You want to be pampered and you will be at Tempt.

Vixen Curves

“I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO DESIRE TO FIT IN”

vixen

Vixen Curves is a BAD ASS online retailer out of the UK specializing in plus size harnesses! (Yes, our beautiful breasts need more pretty things to wear!) Vixen Curves was created solely by owner Vicky who thought more exotic lingerie choices should be available to plus size women. The brand follows the Eff Your Beauty Standards thinking, as said on the shop website.

Harness bras have been trending heavily for a couple years now, with some bra’s even having a built in harness. But having a harness you can mix and match with any bra and any outfit makes them so much more versatile! The down fall, the plus size community was virtually the last to get such wonderful garments, but thanks to Vixen Curves you can get any type of boob lingerie you can imagine! Vixen Curves has also branched into making a harness skirt, suspender belts, chokers, and tulle skirts!

This is a very unique item that I absolutely love and bring to all photo shoots. You could wear this in the bedroom or put this over/under a miniskirt on a night out!

This piece is also fun at shoots and to add some extra spice to an already sexy harness. Vixen Curves is very creative with adding to her traditional items. I have not found any harness that fits me, is well made, and so creative!

This is a great first harness as you can wear it with any bra or without! Partner this with a v neck or scoop neck top for extra exposure. I especially love wearing a harness bra in the summer with tank tops. A harness always adds to an outfit. Also, a harness can dress up a weekend outfit or work casually with a cut up tee and jeans.

Vixen Curves often post one of a kind items for discounted prices on her Instagram. If you aren’t following her there you should because that is the best place to see all of her creative wonders! From feathers to jewels she will add all types of items to make a harness work!

For a full view of all the regular items visit Vixen Curves shop. All items are made when ordered so due expect some time delay, especially if in the US. Also, all goods are made with plus size ladies in mind and use material that does stretch and bands that extend if needed. If you are still worried about sizing you can certainly contact Vicky to send  your measurements. Vixen Curves wants you to feel like a sexy vixen every time you wear one of her designs and I promise you will!

Lingerie of the Week {4}

Today’s lingerie piece is a MUST HAVE in any vintage babe’s wardrobe. This is a piece I have had for several years and I wear it in a lot of my photo shoots. Rago Shapewear is a well known brand because their items are high quality with gorgeous vintage styles. Even if you aren’t a vintage style lover you will still love Rago Shapewear if you love high end lingerie and love feeling sexy!

DSC_3041.jpg

Rago Shapewear is the most durable and tight cinching shapewear I have ever worn. Like I said, it is high quality stuff, so there is never any need to worry about squeezing into it and ungracefully ripping anything. As a plus size woman it is especially difficult to find sturdy shape wear that will last, but Rago has that covered. Another excellent feature is that all Rago Shapewear is made with full metal garters. From experience I have learned you cannot trust those cheap plastic garters, so metal is always the way to go.

Brand: Rago
Sizes Available:34C- 48DD or small – 4xl depending on where you purchase from
Pros: $69-$72
Cons: Sizing depends on how firm you want your shapewear

DSC_9270.jpg

I am wearing Rago Style 9357 – Body Briefer Extra Firm Shaping in a 46 C

This particular piece is an extra firm full body shaper. Rago does have many options and items that are way less binding. Extra firm is the tightest you will find and I don’t recommend an extra firm shaper for your first purchase. Levels of shaping go from light, medium, firm and extra firm. Above I am modeling the extra firm shaper which I did get in a 46C, not the size I would normally wear, but it fits perfect. I had to size larger in width and smaller in chest to find a perfect fit, which Secrets in Lace helped me with. Again, this is why I suggest going with a lower level shaper in your regular size to start.

Below are the two websites I highly suggest when ordering from Rago Shapewear. Both have large selections and similar prices.

American Shapewear

Secrets in Lace

Next time you feel like spoiling yourself splurge on a Rago set or shaper. You will absolutely feel so feminine and sexy wearing these sensual goodies under your clothes or slipping them on for a night in with your partner. Rago lingerie is very versatile and long lasting, and so worth the money. I give Rago 5 big kisses and certainly plan to get more of their gorgeous products in the near future!
