[Virtual Window Shopping is looking at supersize / extended size clothing that I think is nifty. Preferably modeled by fat people.]
In the last few years I’ve been acquiring more tie-dye shirts. I think it’s partly that they tend to be a subtly variegated pattern, and I prefer the subtle patterns (at least in everyday life – for workouts I’m tempted by things like this in orange and hot pink).
The shirt at left is very tempting, in part because it’s not a typical t-shirt, meaning it has darts and shaping, as well as a nice subtle pattern. It’s also hand-dyed, made in the US, and $75, so I probably won’t be getting it.
I also tend to be tempted by dresses and skirts with pockets, like the one at right. However I am reminding myself that I already have a couple dresses with pockets, I have skirts with pockets, and I don’t wear dresses or skirts very much. So I don’t need this one, especially since jewel and crew necks don’t always like me. Really.
FYI for those who have been dismayed that Making it Big is mostly supersizes: they have reworked their smaller sizes to be more fitted. Their 22-24 and 26-28 equivalents have been split into 22, 24, 26 and 28 equivalents. However they still aren’t going smaller than size 22. Their size chart is here.
FYI, I tend to wear a G (tops) or H (bottoms) in their sizing.
