Just My Size Launches Plus Size Belt Collection With Walmart

Just My Size has been the leading retailer of plus size clothing and under garments for many years, and now they are adding a belt collection to the list.

One of the things I can’t live without is a belt. I never wore them until our very own Reah Norman, styled me for Love Your Body Day a few years back. I looked at the garment she picked out for me and just knew I would look like a big denim cloud, but  you know what? I was wrong; the belt did the trick and I instantly had a shape.

Needless to say I have a growing collection of belts and when Just My Size approached me about sending over some belts I was super excited.

If you are looking for belts to compliment your fall wardrobe, check them out. They will be in Walmart stores after September 6, 2011 and let me know what you think.

    I love belts too for the same exact reason…they instantly give me shape. Out of these the leopard print one is my fav. I usually lean towards wider stretchy belts but can’t wait to check these out next week at Walmart. I was watching “What Not to Wear” the other night after “Big Sexy” and I was amazed at how gorgeous these women looked after finding the right fitting clothes. I must admit, I need a wardrobe makeover! The key this fall for me is ORGANIZING my closet and only keeping what fits me well and embraces my curves.

    Hint on the closet organizing–when I did it last spring I did it by color. All my clothes other than undies and nightwear. I look at which one hits me as “right” for that day, then go and grab something appropriate. Don’t forget some way to organize your accessories too. It does make life easier to put your hands on what you want immediately.

    Nice to see belts for PS coming in less expensive options. I don’t mind putting out $$$ for classics that I know I’ll wear for years, but it would be nice to buy something inexpensive and “trendy” just for a season or so.

    Belts have been one of my favorite fashion accessories for a couple of years. Now I love them. But that’s a pretty new transformation for me. I used to think that being plus size, I couldn’t wear a belt.

    But as I was going through the process of doing research for my book, “Lovin’ the Skin You’re In: The Juicy Woman’s Guide to Making Peace with Food and Friends with Your Body” I began to interview women who I considered role models demonstrating body acceptance.

    Because I was so moved by the personal transformations of the women who nominated themselves to be on the show, “How to Look Good Naked,” I became fascinated and passionate in my quest to not only learn how to love the skin I’m in but to teach and inspire other women to do the same.

    Gals like Kelly Park and Shannon Flores who were shaped like me, with big thighs and a tummy, were taught by stylist, Carson Kressley how to rock their plus size figures, Then one day when I was shopping at Lane Bryant, I learned about plus models and realized that they were really the perfect icons for body acceptance. I had the opportunity to speak to and interview the late Mia Amber, she confirmed what I was learning by telling me that it’s so important to focus and to look for parts of your body that you love and to emphasize them. I told her that I used to love my tiny waist but since I had a tummy, I began hiding it in in bigger clothes. She told me that was the worse thing I could do and belts are a plus size woman’s best friend.

    From my experience with Mia and hearing Shannon and Kelly’s and other women’s story and seeing so many other beautiful transformations with just a simple addition of a good belt, I realize that not only does it create more shape and definition for any plus size figure, it makes me feel sexy as hell. And anthing that can do that that can’t be bad! Don’t you agree? What do you think about belts? Love ‘em, leave ‘em? Can’t wait to hear what’s on your mind.
