Jane BarbourMy boobs need their own zip code4   ·  5 days ago

Jeanette Finocchiaro WidenskySOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME!! As a “16″ myself, just remember we have curves and really don’t want to cover them up. We want to feel classy and sexy just like our smaller sisters ;)7   ·  5 days ago

Donna HulnickI want to be artsy and creative and hip! I don’t want a tunic.:-)6   ·  5 days ago

Karen Ellis McKevittI want my pants to stop falling off because I have no butt. I also want my F/G boobs to fit into a dress that doesn’t look like a drape on my size 14 hips. I want someone to realize that I’m not an hourglass. I’m more of an upside down pear. I also want a bra that isn’t beige or white or black.3   ·  5 days ago

Laura McCormickPlease know that just because a big girl has wide hips doesn’t mean her waist is the same size. There are many curvy big girls with wide hips and smaller waists. Please design with us in mind. Thanks!3   ·  5 days ago

Barbara Nunley SmithNo flowers or silly embellishments on the tops. We’re cool and edgy too and want our wardrobe to reflect that.2   ·  5 days ago

Irene WagnerIt’s not all about covering up what society sees as your ‘less than perfect’ body. We want clothes with shape, style and a good fit for curvy hips and thighs.2   ·  5 days ago

Allison SandersNo elastic bands at the waist or hips. Thank you. I love flowy.3   ·  5 days ago

Jill Lerman NazimekEmme: thanks for making a difference and getting the world to recognize that we are all not flat boobed little see through women like the models. I know one thing is for sure, no matter what I wear, I will never blow down in a wind storm! Still remember all the fun we had as kids @ SU! before hubbies, careers, cancer, 50!1   ·  4 days ago

Peggy SmithJust to remember that we have to live with our bodies no matter what the shape is, so please make them look as good as possible!!1   ·  4 days ago

Lydia HayesTHANK YOU. And can you design for a Size 16 who isn’t 6 ft tall? Some of us are 5 ‘ 3″ or shorter. Not popular maybe but realistic. Thanks again for seeing ALL women out here!1   ·  5 days ago

Patricia WoodIt is about time!! I am a size 22W and I need all the help I can get!!1   ·  5 days ago

Barb Morra PaceAmple room for my upper arms which I inherited from the wonderful Dad. I’m waiting on my 6th formal dress for my son’s wedding in October – lovely choices but all of the sleeves are too tight….it’s always been a problem. If I order a size up – the entire dress is too large. Sigh.1   ·  5 days ago

Lynn ForseyBig shoulders big boobs big hips. With sexy curves!!1   ·  5 days ago

Lisa WilliamsMost 14+ clothes start to become shapeless and there is a big difference between one size and the next. We want clothes with shape that appropriately accentuate our curves, and that create the illusion of balance. V-neck/wrap tops, sleeveless or tank tops that don’t have too big/low or too small/high armholes, fitted at the waist, no “blousing”, pants with a mid/modern waistline, pants with straight or skinny leg openings that aren’t skinny through the thigh, fabrics with give and drape, suit jackets that are roomy enough across the back/shoulders without swimming at the waist. Offer pants in lengths – short, medium, tall. Just because we’re bigger, doesn’t mean we’re taller. Perhaps we need to start adding “shapes” to size: hourglass, apple, pear, rectangle.1   ·  5 days ago

Deb RileySmart, hip colors, no horizontal stripes, not everything has to be black or screaming bright colors.1   ·  5 days ago

MaryAnn ValenciaLadies tops that have sleeves that don’t cut off right below armpit. Not an attractive look for many women.
Good luck!1   ·  5 days ago

LaDonna BrownDesign for us who are in our 40′s. What I mean is I just turned 48 and when I shop all I can find is clothes that my grandmother would wear.1   ·  5 days ago

Kathleen Sunshine O’BrienLove flowing sexy feminine1   ·  5 days ago

Sherry Wheeler BaierlThat some of us are bustier at top and smaller at waists…1   ·  5 days ago

Liza BascomHave pants shorter so they do not have to be altered or hemmed. Not everyone wants to wear heels with pants or trousers.1   ·  5 days ago

Cindy BellMainly, I would get a really good book on what big curvy girls should wear and design with those rules in mind. It took me years to start finding deep V necks in plus sizes. Everything was crew which made me look like a football player.1   ·  5 days ago

Cindy Bellfor gosh sakes, think the waistline a little and stop using that disgustingly hot polyester !!1   ·  5 days ago

Linda GrossClothes that are “age-appropriate”. Sorry, but ripped jeans and shirts with stupid designs are not appropriate for those of us over the age of 50.1   ·  5 days ago

Rebecca Yorkooooh, I’d like to have one of those! I’d mosaic it all pretty like!1   ·  4 days ago
