Fashion to Figure Review

Bow Peep Tank Top, looks perfect tucked in
After Lucia was born, I had a major fashion problem.  After the first few weeks, my maternity clothes were too big (thank goodness!) but I was far from fitting in my pre-pregnancy clothing.  In fact, last week was the first time I was able to fit into a pair of my old pants (and even now, I only fit into that one pair).  Many of my shirts continue to be too small because as a nursing mother, I am quite a bit larger in the chest.  So I was searching for beautiful, flattering clothing in larger sizes and was very upset to realize that many items in large sizes either were not very cute or were simply made as a bigger versions of clothes made for smaller women, so the proportions just weren't right.  I'm sure some of you ladies who wear larger sizes are much more familiar with this problem, but this is the first time I came across this issue and I was quite shocked!

a little long
I was given the opportunity by Fashion to Figure to try out one of their clothing items.  I chose the Bow Peep Tank Top because it's adorable, perfect for the hot summer, and I could nurse in it.  I really love this shirt and have received several compliments on it.  It has a really unique overlapping fabric design that doesn't quite come through in the pictures, but that I was very pleased with.  I struggled a bit to find a tank top to go underneath it as I didn't notice when I ordered it just how shear it truly is.  One of my favorite aspects of this tank is that is can easily be a cute top for the day or dress up for a date night out.  As far as sizing goes, it fit me very well width wise, however, it was very long.  I'm used to shirts being long for me since I am only 5'2" and wear petite sizes when available; however, from the lengths of this shirt, I would think that it would seem a bit long even on an average height of 5'5" of 5'6".  Since it was so long on me, I tucked it in while wearing it and really liked how that looked.  I was also pleased with the quality of the item.  At a price of only $26, I was wary that it would look and feel cheap.  While I wouldn't say it is of the highest quality, it certainly is of quality surpassing what I would expect for the price and makes the item a great value.  I anticipate it lasting me for quite a while and becoming a wardrobe staple.

Fashion to Figure is an online retailer whose tag line in "bringing fashion to figures 12-26".  Their clothing is truly trendy (I've seen many styles similar to the Bow Peep Tank Top on Pinterest, my go-to fashion source!).  Since their clothes caters to the plus sizes, they are made to be flattering for curvy women, not simply a larger version of "regular" sizes.  I especially love their jeans, they look so flattering on the models, I can only imagine that they would look great on me too!  They also have cute, stylish accessories for women of all sizes.  What is your favorite item from Fashion to Figure?
