The Modern Design of Casual Plus Size Clothing

January 5th, 2011 by Lisa Metcalf

Over the course of the last 20 years or so, the plus size clothing market has exploded.  Girls and teens who want to keep up with the latest fashion trends can shop for popular styles in plus sizes.  Young, professional women can find office plus size clothing to look great on the job and stylish casual wear and dresses for evenings out on the town.  Middle aged women who used to be held back by their minimal clothing options are now able to shop for top quality fashions they love.  Most of these changes have been thanks to pioneering fashion designers who have worked hard to bring the latest fashions to women of size.

Younger women have been focused on the most by modern fashion designers as they represent a large part of the plus size market.  But, for many years, middle age plus size clothing for women was still hard to find.  Many ladies found that department stores had plenty of options in what might be considered “normal: sizes, but once clothing got above size 10 or 12, it was much less stylish.

The most noticeable flaw in the casual plus size clothing of years past was that it was totally formless.  Instead of creating form fitting designs that would show off a woman’s curves, designers ignored the strengths of plus size women’s bodies and made clothing tent-like.  These looked awful and did nothing to boost a woman’s self esteem and personal image.

Modern designers have taken mature plus size clothing for women to a whole new level of style.  They are using designs that fit a women’s beautiful curves without drawing too much attention to problem areas.  For example, they are designing blouses with flattering necklines and roomy sleeves that are both comfortable and gorgeous.  If you haven’t done so yet, you should definitely take a look at modern designers and the middle age plus size clothing for women they offer at online stores.
