With 60 days left until Summer is over I’m bringing you babes an update of last year’s post 38 Brands Who Sell +Size Swimwear . This list contains a fit for every style, shape, and budget. You can shop online or go try on the swimsuits in store. Whether you’re looking for a cover-up, monokini, bikini, tankini or just beach accessories this list has tons of options for you. Some of these brands offer up to 7x (38w) so let’s dive in ! When shopping swimwear make sure to check out measurements charts, if it’s been awhile since you’ve purchased a swimsuit I recommend getting fitted first. Remember your body is beach ready whenever you’re ready to take your body to the beach. Don’t let the swimsuit seasons pass you by go out and enjoy it, show off those legs, rolls, and that belly and give no F’s while you do it.
The venue for the first Plus Size Men’s Fashion show was loft in uptown Manhattan. Every seat was filled as the music blared. The host announced the first brand, MVP Collection. The plus size male models descended from up stairs as the worked the runway around and through the crowd the cheering ladies.

A grey button up shirt, black tee, dark denim, canvas sneakers accessorized with a small brim hat. I can see a lot of guy wearing this look layering and un-layering the shirts as the season change.

This past weekend I attended the Make Up Show in Orlando. The Makeup Show brings together an incredible range of pro-driven brands, services, celebrity artists, educators and beauty insiders. The show featured over 50+ vendors and 2 days packed with informative demonstrations from experienced beauty professionals. While I was there I had to stop these ladies to find out about their #FatshionFoward looks ! Not only were these ladies serving face but also serving style. I love to see plus size women pushing the fashion boundaries. We can wear what we want and these babes sure did and owned it. Check out how these beauty babe’s do fatshion.
First up the fabulous MUA Casey wearing a sleek black Lane Bryant jumpsuit. Her voluminous lashes and curls gave me life. I loved the sheer bishop sleeves on the jumpsuit and how she paired the look with metallic pointed toe flats from Torrid. When asked what inspired her look she said she wanted to look high fashion without compromising comfort. Tre Chic Casey <3.
I am here for this athleisurewear look. From her shell top classic sneakers to the netted T-Shirt dress to the frosted cat eye frames. This look was giving off all kinds of nostalgic vibes. Her hair cut and color, tattoos and ombre lip also gave the look an edginess.
Next up is Mitcheba who is showing us a casual way to rock the utilitarian trend for spring. Going for cute and comfortable with a tan button up from Charlotte Russe, black leggings and single strap sandals. This look is far from basic when you have a crown of braids, glittery gold lips and your brows can cut shade from a mile away. She is two for two with the gold glitter lips which is another Spring trend. Check out www.glamorouschickscosmetics.com if you want your lipstick to be poppin’.
Getting some serious boho vibes from this babes look. Layered look consisted of a sheer kimono with fringe hem over a wine colored shift dress. Dress featured peek-a-boo cut out and a neck tie. She competed look with lace up heels and shimmery lip gloss.
Who says curvy ladies can’t slay in horizontal strips. JLY proves em from in this knit lace up shift dress. She paired the dress with black leggings and sparkly black D’orsay sandals. Accessorized with beaded stretch bracelets, statement watch, and black Michael Kors tote bag.
I fell in love with the way this babe mixed monochrome prints. From her striped tote bag and head band to her check board printed leggings. I think her look is a fun was to break up the head to toe black look most professionals where on the job.This babes vibrant hair color initially caught my eye but when she turned around her distressed leggings and bold lipstick choice made me approach her. Another chic way to wear black from head to toe without compromising style or aesthetic. Her gold jewelry, lace up combat boots and lush lashes completed the look. Can you say fine wine? This babe was slaying in her fitted knit midi dress. She layered the dress with a flyaway cardigan and a pair of high top chucks. Add some wayfarer sun glass to block out the haters and complete the look.
Achieve an effortless leisurewear look like this Miami HMUA when you pair your favorite kicks with a chambray button up dress. Chambray is a great fabric for spring because of its soft blue color and light weight yarn weave. Every look is more fun when your hair is purple *hair flip*. Add baseball cap or hoop earrings to complete the look. Dress: Target // Shoes: JC Penney
Jessica’s colorful dreads and sequins top from Forever21 initially caught my eye. But as I approached her I noticed so many other little fashion forward details in her look. For instance she layered Ashley Stewart tights under black shorts from Citi Trends that feature several woven patterns, her leopard eye glass frames and her bright pink backpack. Keeping it cute and comfy she completed her look with a canvas sneakers. When asked how her look came together she said that working in the beauty industry has inspired her to mix glamour and edge without compromising comfort.
The only thing cooler then Samantha’s blue hair was her caged kiss print top. Her top is obviously inspired by the occasion. Love Samantha’s style ? Her outfit is available at Torrid. She accessorized the look with gold hoops, a spike stretch bracelet, watch and sandals.
