I had no idea...
We call this group "limbo shoppers" - women who sometimes struggle to fit into straight sizes but aren't quite plus size. They often have as hard of a time finding clothing as true plus size women do - but they are generally overlooked as a group in need of information. Overall, more than 48 percent of women wear a 12 or larger.
...I fall into this group...and while lurking around the internet I ran across this site...brilliant.
The designer Monif C. has her pulse on designing clothes that really flatter a plus size women's body.
I picked a couple of my favorite swimsuits from her line...a bit pricey, but worth every penny.
...is this model gorgeous or what? There's nothing wrong with being a size 2, but beauty comes in all sizes...see.

...Wanna get the low down on what different plus size labels mean...for example, is 1x the same as XL? What's the difference between misses and women's...this website lays it out in an easy to understand format...
