There’s been so many more mainstream designers introducing plus size lines lately – it’s been a really refreshing development in the fashion world. I think back to when I was a teenager and was limited to one store and maybe a couple department stores and it feels like eons ago. Of course, online shopping changed it all, right?
THERE IS NO “MAXIMUM” ON STYLE -- STYLE DOESN’T HAVE A SIZE!
I discovered rue21 last week and wanted to make sure I spread the word. I don’t know how I missed it. They’re based here in the U.S. with more than 1100 stores in 47 states. Even here in California! In fact, rue21 is one of the fastest-growing fashion retail brands in the country. Inspired by the spirit and style of one of the best times in life (age 21 – cute, right?), their products are designed for people looking for fashion that’s modern, trendy and affordable.
True to that, rue21’s plus section is fashion-forward, flattering and includes everything – tops, plus size leggings, party dresses, outerwear, shoes, accessories and more. They have so much to offer, and their plus size clothing collection has only been around since November!
With spring and summer coming, here are some of my favorites:
Most recently, they launched plus size lingerie. Can I get a HALLELUJAH?! This is the hardest thing to find when you’re overweight. Not just because of size alone, but because a lot of manufacturers assume because you’re big, you’ve put aside any desire to wear sexy under-garments. They even carry plus size sports bras – this has always been the HARDEST item of clothing for me to find. I’m excited to take their line out
Also, massive bonus points for their sale section. The prices are just beyond reasonable and with this crazy weather, I may blow a few bucks on some $16.99 sweaters! Shipping is also affordable at a flat rate of $7 (although expedited shipping with higher rates is available), and is always free for orders over $50.
I would be remiss if I did not also mention their social responsibility campaign because stuff like this earns my loyalty. rue21 is a proud supporter of diversity, philanthropy and sustainability initiatives.
Please go check them out and let me know what your top wishlist item is!
