One fine Saturday afternoon after consulting with a client, I was waltzing down Fifth Avenue and I stumbled into Anthropologie. I usually go in Anthro for knick knacks for my house (they have the best candles and housewares) or a piece of jewelry. I perused the sale section and grabbed some pens, a cute notebook and some plates…but then something caught me from the corner of my eye. Lots of prints and textures in billowy fabrics hanging on a sale rack.
So I said eh, whatever. Let me just humor myself and try these on.
Lo and behold, I was standing in Anthropologie plus size and all, wearing a jumpsuit WITH ROOM. I was stunned! So I tried on about six more pieces and they all fit and I was ecstatic. I’d NEVER thought to come into Anthropologie and find clothes that actually worked for me. As I always say, shopping is mind over matter. You just have to go into the store with an open mind and some patience.
Now in full disclosure, I’m a size 18/20 and an hourglass shape. I tried on pieces from the three brands below, so I know the material and I know they work for me and my body type.
