You know I love to feature plus size clothing sites on this site. So, I was excited to find another site with affordable prices for us curvy women. I even more happy to do a review for the site Fashion to Figure since they carry many different items for plus size women.
I knew I wanted something dressier in hopes of having something new to wear in the classroom this year. So, I decided to go with the Paisley Print Kimono Blouse. I figured it looked pretty, dressy, comfy, and appropriate. The blouse is some of those things. 😉 I’m actually wearing the blouse above. As you can see, it is indeed pretty. It also rather soft and comfortable. It’s also relatively dressy. Plus, it’s easy to put it with a pair of black pants or capris (my favorite bottoms for the class).
However, the shirt is not as appropriate as I initially thought. The shirt is cut low in the front. In this picture I am wearing a black half-shirt underneath to cover my cleavage. However, I didn’t realize until taking this picture how thin the shirt is. I mean you can see through the bottom of the shirt (where I don’t have another shirt underneath it) to my skin/stomach. 🙁 Thankfully, I noticed this while taking the photos and before I actually wore it into the school. So, I will definitely put a black tank top or something like it under this blouse to keep everything covered up.
Granted, this is a really pretty shirt. It is also really comfy and I could wear it all day. I even prefer the v-neck cut on shirts. I even don’t mind the elastic waist. However, I dislike that I have to wear another shirt underneath it. I was hoping to wear just this shirt rather than making sure I have something else to go underneath it. I still plan to wear the shirt and I still like it. However, I will have to make sure that I have a shirt to wear underneath it.
Have you ever gotten something from Fashion to Figure? What did you of think what you received?
Disclosure: I received the shirt for free. No compensation was received. The opinions expressed are my own.
