    I love the Kiyonna brand, esp. the wrap dress. You can dress it up to your heart’s desire or down, whatever mood your’re in!

    visited the SONSI site and was thrilled to see some SWAK designs there! I am having a PUG (Pin Up Girl) Party this summer for my 37th birthday, and would love, love, love the Dixie Halter Dress to wear for that! I’d pair it with red platform peek-a-boo heels, have my hair pin-curled and styled like Marilyn Monroe and do the classic pinup girl makeup. most likely wear a big, red flower or a classy little hat with some vintage gloves and a vintage purse. What a gorgeous dress! And at a very reasonable price, too!

    I LOVE IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel! The material is always top-notch and everything always has an elegant look. Their items are tailored to actually fit full-figured women – love their stuff!

    I absolutely love the Florica Dress in Multi by IGIGI and am definitely buying it! The different mix of prints, patterns, and stripes looks so good together and it’s done in a tasteful way!

    I love Igigi! I’ve ordered from them in the past, and I’m buying the Celine Wedding Gown to be married in this June!

    I love IGIGI and SWAK. I would have a hard time deciding how to spend the money.

    Being that Summer is right around the corner, I have my eye on the Alight, Turquoise Scarf Print Dress. I love the color and the print 🙂

    I love Monif C’s designs!!!! I have always wanted to wear at least on of her dresses because they are all simply beautiful. The stores where I live do not have dresses that fit my curvy body the way her dresses would seem to. Being in college, I do not get a chance to go shopping often but If I were to win this contest, I would get the white Marylin Ruched Convertible dress. That would be the perfect dress to go out on a date in!!!

  11. Katrina

    March 5, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    I always keep an eye on Igigi, Kiyonna and SWAK designs. Especially love the Vika dress in brown, the Betsey Ruched in maraschino and the Gloria dress in purple, respectively.

  12. Jaimie Donelan

    March 5, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    I LOVE the Amour Belted Dress by Catherines, paired with the Savoir Faire Hat also by Catherines . That outfit is absolutely perfect for Keeneland race track!!!

  13. Ivy

    March 5, 2012 at 3:39 pm

    I absolutely love the IGIGI Eva Maxi Dress by Yuliya Raquel. This dress is elegant, super sexy, and would look gorgeous against my chocolate skin. I am 6′ so long dresses are a treasure! I would probably wear a pair of gold wedges or heels to bring out the natural hue in this dress. I would also wear my hair up and the makeup would be natural with an nice smokey eye – sounds like I am ready for a night on the town!!

    omg i love the Apply Now for a Lane Bryant Credit Card
    ‘Marilyn’ Short Convertible Dress – Purple by Monif C i think this would be a great dress for spring and fall oh ya summmer and winter with a cute pair of boots and a cute shrug.

  15. Tishea

    March 5, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    I almost never look for an outfit in Lane Bryant or on the website. I do however look on igigi and kiyonna and was looking at possible dresses I wanted from off their website to wear to an award show I am planning to attend. But low and behold when I looked on I saw a MULTI COLOR SEQUIN SKIRT by Lane Bryant that might be in the running for options to wear to the award show. I would like to pair it with a shirt that brings out the ocean blue color in the skirt, heels, bracelets and a nice necklace.

  16. Lisa

    March 5, 2012 at 7:25 pm

    Workin’ Moms gotta have fun too.. That Monif C Ruched Marilyn (plum!) is my top pick. I adore IGIGI also, and am getting the Francesca (black) and keep sticky toddler hands away by playing peek-a-boo with that GORGEOUS ruffled trench coat (olive)… and I would like the IGIGI multi Infinity dress- just on a whim. I can look totally put together at Target, grabbing milk, birthday cards and butt paste.m

    Love the sexy animal print dress by Sydney’s closet and the dresses by Pink apple are prefect for summer. Cute, cute, cute

  18. Moe aka @biggirlblue

    March 5, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    At the moment I love the Urban Expressions handbags especially the bright blue Cadence (I love the bright pink too!). The turquoise would be a great addition to my new coral trench. 😀

  19. Aliyah Worthy

    I’m in a total passionate love with the Monif C. ‘Marilyn’ Ruched Convertible Dress in White! I would rock it on the streets of Seoul for as many days as possible! And yes I said Seoul as in Seoul, South Korea. Being a plus size college student here is hard enough but add plus size to it and it becomes somewhat of a problem. Being that I’m in a country that encourages girls to be stick thin, its really hard to find clothing. So with this dress I would just as…well lies I would look even more fierce with the girls that have no curves! It would be amazing to see the look on everyone’s that Big girls are sexy and fabulous too. 😀

    I LOVE the mood rings halter swim top by Cacique. Paired with the side slit swim skirt from Fashion Bug, and you feel like you have designed your own swimsuit! I have not purchased swimwear in many years because there just have not been as many cute and flattering styles in the plus-size market. There are now so many awesome choices!!

  21. Tammy Matlock

    March 6, 2012 at 5:52 am

    I love anything by Fashion Bug. Whether I’m dressing for the office, or for a night out on the town, I can always find something fun and fashion relevant in their stores. And their reasonable prices mean I always get more for my money.

  22. Melanie Healey

    March 6, 2012 at 6:10 am

    I have to say Lane Bryant, only because I just don’t know all the other fabulous lines! I’m just now learning to love AND dress my curves… but Cacique bras are my ultimate vice! <3

    Ali Dress in Red by IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel is a dream! It is very Japanese kimoni inspired and I am in love with it. It is elegant and doesn not make a plus sized gril feel like she is plus sized at all. You know what I mean. A lot of dresses in general make us plus sized womn look pregnant and the generous cuts on the dress and especially the sleeves make whomever wears it look absolurely stunning. A real show stopper of a dress and appropriate for all occasions. A go-to dress for any day or night of the week. Simplicity and elegnce all in one.

  24. Melanie, check out the Fashion Genius on Sonsi and explore all the great looks you can create! It’s a great way to step out of your fashion comfort zone and discover a new one!

    Asking me to choose a favorite is like asking me to choose a favorite type of cheesecake. But I guess overall I would have to say IGIGI has my favorite things. I already own several pieces from them, and I am currently cuvetting Tropical Beauty Maxi. But I also am planning on getting married next year and am eyeing a couple of their wedding dresses.

    I love, love, love the member creations outfits! One that stood out the most to me was a collection entitled summer fun, as I am preparing for vacation. I love the Patent T-strap sandal by Lane Bryant and would love to get all colors of this multifaceted summer sandal. I have been browsing the web like a madwoman in pursuit of the perfect bathing suit. The Palm print retro one piece swimsuit by Lane Bryant is the perfect bathing suit for summer as well as the beach getaway I will soon embark on. With the Ruffled hoodie swim cover-up by Cacique the poolside outfit is nearly complete. After the adding of the accessories and Graphic Diamonds Beach Sack by Echo this outfit is sure to draw positive attention and be a comfortable relaxed summer beach look, I’m excited about mixing it up and adding this collection to my collectiion!

    March 15, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    My favorite brand hands down would have to be IGIGI by Yuliya Raquel. Since spring has finally reached my city the “Tropical Beauty Maxi Dress” caught my eye right away. I love the versitility of a dress because just the slightest changes in make up and hair will allow me to go from a day to an evening look with that dress. I would wear my hair up and add some really dramatic wooden vintage pieces of jewelry with it.

  63. Brenda

    I am in love with the striped tank dress by DKNY, sold by Lane Bryant. I would wear it with a sassy pair of red espadrilles, and accessorise with silver jewlry. Would make a great addition to my summer wardrobe!


    March 18, 2012 at 11:43 am

    I love thevretro glam dress from Kinonna!!! It an be worn on a date or to an evening on the town or even to a wedding! so versatile and elegant! id pair this dress with pumps and a red lip, mabe some victory rolls (50’s hair style) to pull it all together! thanks!

    When I first saw the Mary Jane espadrille sandals, I immediately fell in love with them. They are the kind of sandals you could wear to work with a any business type of attire, then head straight to happy hour. You could even wear them with a dress, capris, skirt, or even shorts. I absolutely love, love, love these sandals!<3
