Review: Fashion to Figure Skirt

Hello loves,

Those of you who follow me on twitter/facebook know I was thrilled when Fashion to Figure gave me the opportunity to review a piece of clothing from their company. Many of you know that I have been plus sized the better part of my life and so I understand the struggle to find fun, attractive, figure flattering plus sized clothes. Since I now wear a 12 (sometimes a 10 on a skinny day) I still technically fall into the plus sized category so I was happy to give it a go.

I was allowed to pick which item I'd like to review and keep. I picked the geometric print skirt I'm about to reveal because it seemed functional for both work and going out. I also could instantly imagine myself wearing my red Michael Kors heels with it, which won it bonus points. A few days later it arrived in the mail and I was thrilled with how well it fit! Even with a belt, it's comfortable for both standing and sitting for a few hours at work (I'm a threat to take anything I belt off while I work).

Here's a close up of just how well it fit:

I needed to make it professional for my work day so I paired it with a Caslon cardigan and added one of my favorite red necklaces to jazz it up and bring out the red skinny belt that came with it, as well as the previously mentioned Michael Kors heels.

I scoured the whole Fashion to Figure website with a plus sized coworker and we were both astounded by their stylish selection as well as their unbeatable prices! If you haven't visited their site before you should take the time to browse, the skirt I received was less that $30!

My second favorite item after the skirt was this ribbed ponte dress which is listed for only $42. Even their shipping is flat rate and $5. I was pleased to find and to share this company. I have heard time and again from friends, coworkers, and fellow bloggers how hard it is to find affordable, stylish, flattering plus sized clothes. It seems to me, the search is over!

I couldn't totally keep this under wraps for the few days between the skirts arrival and this post so as a result I've already promised Jess she can borrow it first! Also, Amber told me via twitter she has a clutch headed her way from Fashion to Figure now, which I can't wait to see! Make sure you check out their website and let me know what piece you would have picked to review.

Love, B
