December 2008 - HAPPY HOLIDAYS! HAPPY SHOPPING!
Tis the season! All of us at AlwaysForMe.com wish you and yours a happy and healthy holiday season. We appreciate your continued plus size patronage and look forward to a positive and productive year ahead.
We also know how hectic this time of the year can be --and how hard it may be to decide on the perfect gift for yourself and others. To make holiday shopping a breeze, AlwaysForMe.com offers the following suggestions. Even better? You won’t need to hassle with traffic or mall crowds. You can shop for everything you need from the comfort of your own desktop.
Wrap Yourself as the Present! Three great potential lingerie gifts new this month are the fun and flirty Santa outfit , a unique and forgiving blouson chemise, and a perfect-to-ring-in-the-New-Year black lace babydoll.
Ho, ho, ho goes hot, hot, hot with a plus size velvet Santa outfit.(Style # X7288) in sizes 1-3X . You can keep this outfit year after year creating an altogether new kind of holiday family tradition! The white trimmed red velvet underwire chemise comes with a waist cinching belt.
A unique style that is reminiscent of a 20’s flapper is our newly arrived, Blouson Chemise (Style # 4139), in a darling fuschia pink. The no-cling cut of this plus size lingerie covers a multitude of sins. The flowing mid-section offers ample coverage then comes in at the hip to create shape. The chemise and matching thong are accentuated with sweet nuances like spaghetti straps with flower detail, and short swingy skirt.
A sexy choice for New Years Eve will have the champagne cork popping on its own! Our plus size lace chemise is femme fatale fantastic! A sheer lace floral panel runs down the front from neck to skirt, teasing the eye and tantalizing the beholder. A daring V-neck is finished in scalloped lace.
2009 is the Year of the Plus Size Swimsuit
We have been delighted to see that the options and attention paid to the plus size market dramatically increased in 2008. We know that we’ve done our job well in representing the plus size women when magazines like Oprah, Seventeen and Woman’s World want to share our swimwear designs with their readers.
Here are just a few of the plus size suits that represent the fashion-forward nature of our plus size bathing suit styles. Be sure to check back on our site as the New Year unfolds to order the newest 2009 styles before they sell-out!
The #1 Style from 2008: Ocho Rios (Style #78458WA). What more can we say than what’s been said by every major fashion magazine and customers around the world? This kicky retro design with its super flattering style is a plus size swimsuit wardrobe MUST HAVE. And for the ladies who already have this plus size bandeau in their closet, be sure to check out its sister version, Negril, in 2009 in a brown and white polka dot pattern with pink details. This version is not even out yet and the best-seller buzz has already started!
Another classic plus size swim suit that looks great on a variety of body types is Carol Wior’s one piece swim dress in black (Style #93093W). From its empire waist that falls softly from under the bust line, to its Chanel-like interlocking ring detail, this plus size stunner is sophistication with a capital “S”.
Start the year off with an international flair. Our Hermes print halter tankini (Style #K5552) offers plus size pizzazz! An Italian inspired Pucci-esq top sets off a solid brief to advantage. This plus size two-piece offers plenty of adjustability, as well, with a halter tie neckline, underwire support bra, mesh tummy support and adjustable side ties.
A Dress, A Cover Up? We can’t talk about plus size bathing suits without mentioning at least one great plus size cover up sun dress as a perfect holiday gift. In sizes 1-3X, our Grecian inspired black sundress with braided neckline (Style #6073) is easy to buy for others, but we can’t guarantee you’ll actually give it away once you see how stylish and affordable it is. This neckline is uber-flattering with a black and white braid that frames the face and sets off the empire style to its best advantage. A feature we loved (and you will too!) are the elastic arm holes that afford plus size movement and comfort. Wear it with its belt, or without, for two incredible looks.
Make Your Resolutions a Reality
Great gifts for you, or your workout partner are active separates from AlwaysForMe.com. A late season addition, Danskin’s wide leg workout pant (Style#3093)has quickly become a fan favorite for its wide waistband and leg room – as well as for its incredibly soft texture. Many have paired it with our V-neck tee (Style #3016)in pink to create a soft and feminine color palette. And PS… many say they wear this combination for everything BUT working out!
