Real women have small busts!

Sometimes I talk too much about plus sized girls, saying that “real women have curves”. Well, that’s true. But you know what else is also true? Real women don’t have curves. Because real women come in all shapes and sizes. So yes, if you aren’t “curvy”, you are still beautiful – graceful, lithe and agile. Don’t feel ashamed or self-conscious, embrace your lithe girly silhouette!

Remember, fashion is all about using strong points – and your swholesale brasleek, sporty silhouette is definitely a strong point. There are many styles that don’t suit women with larger busts but will perfectly suit you! You can wear strapless or backless tops and dresses without much stress – busty ladies will have trouble with it because straps of their large wholesale bras will break the effects. You can reveal your slim shoulders without much hassle and feel confident in a strapless bra. Likewise, you can expose your sides – and paradoxically show a bit more skin without worrying about showing too much of a cleavage.

And in the hot summer months if you feel fancy you can use a large scarf to craft a simple top without fear of “falling out” of it. Many such tops require the lady to go braless – which is not a consideration for you. You can easily turn the scarf into a simple halter or a sleeveless top, simply tying it around your cleavage. You won’t have to buy wholesale bras! If you like small tops, you can also choose cropped jackets and boleros – on a well-endowed lady, these look baggy and bloating.

Alternatively, you can embrace the boyish style, with boyfriend jeans, denim or leather jackets – and then soften it with feminine accessories. This might look butch – but you can make it chic! And instead of “tough girl” you can also embrace the “office lady” look, sometimes even complete with a tie!

Remember, there is no single ideal of women’s beauty. True beauty is confidence, style and the ability to make it work – not the bust size!


Measuring pants!

wholesale trousers

I dislike buying clothes online. Sure, there’s a practically unlimited variety of clothes out there, but I prefer to get clothes I can try on and walk around for a while. But the price is sometimes so low and they look so good on the pictures that I get tempted. Even wholesale trousers on business sites look good! That’s why I decided to learn how to size a pair of jeans and measure my own appearance. I have always thought that the clothes need to be comfortable first, good for weather second and pretty – at the close third.

To measure a pair of jeans lay them on a flat work space. Most of the measurements you need to make are the easiest if you lay them down flat. Smooth out any folds, zip the pants and button them up – you need exact measurements.

Waist size

Waist size is the distance between the left side to the right side of the waist, doubled. If your waistband is elastic, don’t stretch it. Some jeans are intended to fit somewhat below your natural waist (low rise) so keep that in mind when measuring yourself.

Thigh size

Measure the things 2 inches/5 cm below the crotch seam – the point where the two legs meet. Go down from it about 5 cm, and measure it horizontally. Double it. This is the thigh measurement.

Inseam size

You might want to use a tape measure for that one. Stretch it from the crotch seam down to the cuff – the bottom of the leg. Do not double this one.

clothing-650372_1920Front rise

Front rise is the distance between the crotch seam to the middle of the waistline. Remember to stretch out your pants so that the upper part is nice, tight and flat. Again, do not double this number. If you’re a very curvy woman, with a nice bottom, you can also measure your rear or back rise – the similar distance on the back.

Other measurements

In general, you need the four measurements above to find a fitting pair of jeans, but if you need more precise information, you can measure the pants in the point the knees would bend, the width of the seat, or hemline of the bottom of the leg. Few sellers of wholesale trousers bother to take care of these.

Measure yourself

If you have measured up the pants you’re waiting for, now it’s the time to measure yourself – in the parts of the body where you measured the pants.

To get your waist measurement, wrap the tape around your waist – and if you’re not sure how to find it, bend to one side – the waist is where your body creases. Similarly, measure the fullest point on your thigh, the distance from your crotch to your ankle (the inseam) – and boys, remember to be a bit looser for this one. And finally, measure the distance from your crotch to a belly button.  Women would do good if they also measured the largest width of their hips.

You could use a sizing table to adjust your size – but I seldom do it, instead preferring to ask the retailer or dealer of wholesale trousers about the size of the clothes.


Why wear pearls?

female-616292_1920Pearls exude elegance and class, but they can work for many occasions, from chic presentations, dates, through a family outing of a casual movie with friends. Pearls show some class, but their greatest strength is that they’re modest, subdued. They will kick your outfit up a notch without being in your face! The beauty of the pearl lies in its perfection – natural pearls are round, perfectly elegant, and well, pearlescent – their shine attracts just the right amount of attention. Not as gaudy as gems or gold, the pearls signal maturity, elegance, and responsibility.

Do you wonder how versatile the pearl jewelry is? Well, wonder no more. Here are a couple of examples on how can you wear them with.

Every woman should own an LBD – little black dress. It’s amazingly versatile and works well for formal, elegant, sexy or casual outings. You could wear one on a semi-formal cocktail party or a great date… and with it, you can wonderfully complete it with a pearl necklace and a pair of pearl earrings. Just like a little black dress pearl jewelry is timeless. Some celebrities want to keep it modest, classic and simple, with a single or double strand – but many celebs wear longer strands of necklaces.

Pearl necklaces are also a perfect compliment for an elegant, business work pantsuit or jumpsuit. Some of the companies I worked with often banned outright metal jewelry deeming it distracting and in some places they were impractical, stainless steel looks actually very nice, but it can interfere with work equipment! Pearls don’t have this problem, actually. If anything, they just make you look more professional and competent. Just wear a pearl necklace over one of the wholesale blouses your company bought in bulk for you.

wholesale blousesAnd you can rock them with casual wear, for school, shopping or meeting with friends. If something works for Lisa Simpson, it can work for you! Natural pearls might be too expensive for you, but for a casual outing, artificial pearls look pretty nice! Match it with one of your fancy wholesale blouses, and look for the effect.

Pearl necklace is not the only piece of pearl jewelry. While rings with pearls aren’t seen as practical, pearl earrings can add just the perfect touch of elegance for your costume at any time. You can wear it with everything – so, guys, this is a perfect gift!


My main take on fashion designers!


wholesale leggingsThere are dozens of fashion designers reigning the fashion industry, from the beginning designers and fashion bloggers, producers of wholesale leggings to the most powerful movers and shakers who influence the way that people dress. I have chosen a couple of fashion designers who influence a lot of current trends. This is my personal choice, so don’t be offended if you won’t find your idol here!

Elsa Schiaparelli

Elsa Schiaparelli was a famous Italian designer who used surrealistic inspirations inspired by great artists like Man Ray and Salvador Dali. She used it to create irreverent, unusual designs and was famous for her shocking pink designs. Her achievements still amaze and inspire a lot of people. 

Ralph Lauren

He gained his popularity because of the wide ties he promoted – often made of unusual materials. His clothing lines were sold at high-end stores, and his set design and careful staging made them very memorable.

Christian Dior

The famous French designer, Christian Dior, is well known for his unique and distinct “new look” style, based on his mastery of shapes and lines. His dresses and suits revolutionized female fashion after the WWII. He gave the women a “flower silhouette” – a voluminous, full, and nipped-in waist skirt, padded hips and balanced bust line. To this day Dior is an inspiration for creators of clothes, from high designs to affordable wholesale leggings.

Calvin Klein

Calvin Klein was famous for his disco style, like his tight designer jeans, and his stripped down and spare designs in the 90s created minimalist style. His claim to fame were many celebrity endorsements, like Kate Moss or Mark Wahlberg; he has created many successful advertising campaigns.

Gianni and Donatella Versace

Gianni Versace was a very charismatic, talented Italian designer. His pieces were focused on sex-appeal and personal power. After his tragic death, his flamboyant sister Donatella focused on the line and is often known for celebrity endorsements and unique style. She is known for vivid styles and amazing patterns.


Beanies for moms?!

get hats wholesale like herFor that winter and late autumn style, there is a multitude of hat styles – and there’s always the beanie. Sure. I know what you’re thinking (hint: I’m standing right behind you now). A BEANIE? What am I? Nine? Well, no, don’t mock. Ladies of all ages can rock the “beanie” look, they’re warm and can be stylish with proper care. Ask your retailer if they’ve stocked up on hats wholesale for the winter.

The classic beanie look covers your whole forehead and ears. The front of the beanie should be a little over your eyebrows, don’t make it slouch too much, but leave it a little loose on top and in the back (think “backwards smurf”). Push the bangs beneath the hat, especially if they’re a little greasy or flat.

And if it gets really cold, roll the cuff of the beanie once – creating a warmer band. Cover your forehead, ears and hopefully back of the neck. Let your hair dangle in front of the beanie this way, since it fits more snugly now. You don’t have to buy a multitude of hats wholesale; a beanie is very versatile.

dsc_0456_kopiaAnd conversely, you can wear the beanie higher – wear it over your forehead, covering basically only the tips of your ears. If it slides down, you can hold it in place with a bobby pin.The excess material of the hat can stand up, or fold in the back. And if you want to show off your hair dye this “Peter Pan” style works great – especially if your hair is in contrasting color from your beanie.

Accordingly, if you have very curly hair you can
try an oversized beanie, covering it all without looking misshapen or lumpy. We might also joke that it’s an afro or reggae style, but in truth, the large, beret-style beanie looks great on any lady and warms you up. The beanie styles presented above work as well with curly hair as they do with straight hair. You can pull your beanie back, and let your curly bangs shine through, tangling with your hat – it’s your head and your choice!


Hey, guys, want to try out a sweater?

My friend Anita has evidently been inspired by my erstwhile series on flamenco dresses and has published a series on men’s sweaters. You can read it easily here:

She has a lot of knowledge on the topic, and it’s clear that she knows her sweaters. So, moms, look there. The Halloween is coming, and Black Friday too, so, moms, hunt for that perfect gift for the dads!


Fishnets – hot or not?

sexy-1617403_1920I have to admit, I have mixed feelings about fishnets. They’re this one weird article of clothing that says both “classy” and “trashy” at the same time. For every ten floozies that wear them, there’s one awesome lady that manages to pull them off… er, you know what I meant. And that’s the thing – you either love them or hate them.

Fishnets – classy or sexy?

When we see fishnets on TV they’re usually paired with a mini and high heels – but this isn’t particularly elegant or lady-like. Let’s start with wearing fishnets with a skirt that’s two fingers above the knee or longer. Don’t scream “sexy”, suggest it instead. And yes, if you want to, you can match the fishnet stockings with an actual pair of pants – it offers just a hint of sexiness with your feet and it shows! You don’t have to show too much of your leg – and boots are another choice. You can be very feminine showing a bit of fishnet between the hem of your dress and the ends of your boots!

A good compromise

A good compromise between the risky fishnets and regular pantyhose is a finer mesh. They will be seen as less “racy”, more toned down. The smaller the distance between the “diamonds”, the better the look. And fishnets don’t have to be black – for day wear they can be flesh-colored or brown. Indeed, you can even wear some solid tights underneath the thin fishnets – office-acceptable colors include dark navy blues or greens. You can even try out the more daring combination for the evening. Here’s a fun article about colorful tights I found!

gothic-1461103_1920Keep the rest of your clothing simple. Avoid patterns and prints that might draw attention away from the fishnets – they should be your key fashion accessory, not brooches or flashy tops. Fishnets can make matronly, dowdy clothing look instantly more stylish and elegant. Instead of drawing attention with colors and patterns, pay more attention to the cut and the style – wear tailored shirts, bespoke jackets, and other customized clothing. And if you’re one of these ladies who must wear jewelry no matter what (like I am), you can pick pearls. Pearls work great as modest jewelry for all occasions.

Dress codes for employers and employees

Many of readers of mine have work. Some are useless bums. Or students. Or, quite likely, moms. But chances are that if you can afford the Internet or a mobile device you might have a source of income. And chances are that you work for somebody, probably in a company of some sorts. And many employers enforce a dress code in an office.

you need wholesale women's sweaters for the office

A lot of entry-level employees dress shabbily, without any regard for the others. They pick baggy sweatpants, loose tops or shop for discounted wholesale women’s sweaters. They don’t devote any attention – whether boys or girls – to their appearance. And this doesn’t create a good image of the company and can influence productivity in the office even if they don’t directly meet any customers. A compulsory dress code can keep them in check, and help improve company’s image.

How to set up your dress code?

Of course, the exact dress code depends on the company. Some enforce dress code only for the employees that are responsible for the client’s well-being: sales force, greeters, customer service. But I have worked for banks that enforced dress codes for IT employees, marketing and even freelancers like photographers and translators working for them. If the company has no dress code, anyone can wear anything – and this can distract other employees. Not to be stereotypical, but I can imagine a situation where the office becomes a fashion revue and instead of working, ladies start to display fancy costumes. A neatly uniformed look can be a great help in maintaining order in the workplace. You can even buy a lot of clothes in bulk, like wholesale women’s sweaters to serve as your uniform.

wholesale woman's sweaters are important for dress codeA lot of the workers might opt for casual business or formal business attire, but this is something that might vary greatly from office to office. If you want to set the dress code for your office, you might outright ban: “funny” T-shirts, with distracting slogans or even foul language, revealing clothes like tank-tops or skinny jeans, torn jeans or tops. Wearing hats indoors usually depends on the job and could be allowed for religious reasons for instance. And naturally, sweatpants and sweatsuits are the no-no! Instead, allow wholesale women’s sweaters, so that your employees will feel warm at work.

Take note, that if you allow something for men and ban it for women, this will be unnecessary. Women can wear ties and some can look good in them – but if you think it’s distracting either ban ties in general or allow them, don’t forbid women to wear ties and allow them for men!

And communicate them clearly to your workers – if you want some variety, like casual Fridays or Saturdays, allow them.

Tights, leggings and yoga pants?

she's not wearing black leggings wholesaleWhat’s the difference between tights, leggings, and yoga pants? Many women consider these one and the same, but obviously, there are many differences between these. I consider tights being a heavier variety of stockings, worn with street clothes or when I want to dance. Tights are opaque and more durable pantyhose (although I also talk about light nylon tights). I don’t consider them outerwear, they’re for me just another kind of lingerie. I would wear them also with more formal clothes, like my Sunday best. Tights get torn up easily, so you can buy a lot of them, but you wouldn’t buy, say, black leggings wholesale.

I consider leggings, on the other hand, to be a substitute for pants. They are footless, unlike some tights or pantyhose, and body hugging. Typically they’re made of spandex or similar wear. They can have pockets, but usually, they don’t. They’re also thicker than tights, and can be more acceptable as outerwear, although most consider them to be worn under a tunic or a skirt. Many women wear black leggings to work, although most do it under the shirt, they seldom completely replace pants. Many employers buy black leggings wholesale for their workers. They work great when you want to keep warm, and can be a great substitute for pantyhose during the winter. There are also jeggings which are essentially leggings that have a denim pattern (but aren’t to be confused with skinny jeans), and treggings is leggings made out of thicker fabric, an essentially tight pair of pants.

Of the three, yoga pants are the heaviest, they’re essentially a kind of sweatpants. They can be tight and narrow with ankle stretches, but can also be flared or bell-bottomed – they’re very popular as an alternative to jeans. They’re also fairly stretchy, have a wide waistband which can sometimes be folded, and fit snugly. They usually stay put when you’re doing weird yoga positions. They’re very comfortable and can be worn without a cover up.

I love all three of them, but they’re made for different purposes. I get tights for official occasions, buy black leggings wholesale for exercise or during cold winters, and yoga pants for comfort.

Mix and match your clothes…

Sweatshirt tunic wholesale is not as good as thisRecently I had a couple of hours free, so I decided to experiment with styles and dress up. It’s not easy to find women’s clothes in all sizes, especially when you’re wanting more affordable clothing. You might want to spend the day shopping, buy if the shop doesn’t get key items like a sweatshirt tunic wholesale, you might feel that the day is wasted.

I tried a romper – but I didn’t like it because I’m not five, and I don’t romp. Plus-size women need, however wide, flowing stretchy clothes, and rompers work well but it might be some of a problem to wear. Rompers combine shorts and a shirt, and sometimes can show too much, but are nevertheless a good wear for the summer.

A matched suit of a striped skirt and a crop top can also look great. The longer top can sometimes reveal too much, but a neckline can be more open. Two striped pieces match great and create a slimming effect. On the other hand, you can pair them with another top, like a sweatshirt tunic wholesale. The skirt will match the grey tunic and be available for everyone easily. It’s important that you felt good in your clothes, they need to be comfy and soft, and not too tight.

Giel in beautiful sweatshirt tunic wholesaleA simple solution is just a t-shirt, cut more in the hips that can accentuate your curves and show how well you present. The fabric can be free flowy, and if you wear long sleeves, this can look like a flowing sweatshirt tunic wholesale, especially now that’s the autumn is coming. Grey sweatshirt tunic can work great with grey jeans, even though they might be baggy, but they are very comfortable.

The new fad is for bomber jackets, and I have discovered also that varsity jackets can be a great variety, especially if they’re shorter than the hem around the waist. A military swing jacket might fit your body, but a sweatshirt tunic wholesale can fit it very snugly.
