At Already Pretty: Dressing on the Cusp

by Ashley on May 14, 2013

dressing for the cusp of sizes, dress for between plus and standard sizes, tips for women between standard and plus sizes, between sizen 14 and 16, advice for shopping between sizes 12 14 and 16

Last week at Already Pretty I shared my tips and shared advice for dressing on the cusp of sizes.

My whole life, my weight has always bounced between a 10 and 22. Some of those numbers are vanity sizing. My body has mostly hovered between the 14-18 range for the majority of it, which is infuriating.  Between juniors, misses, and women’s patterning, finding the best fit for your figure can be maddening, especially when you’re straddling the lines between standard and plus. (Or petite and standard, or petite and plus!)

For most of us, fashion is a lot of trial and error.  That can make shopping especially maddening, so I share my favorite places to shop and how I find new spots.

As always, the readers are infinitely more helpful than I am, so be sure to read through them– one of my favorite parts about Already Pretty is connecting readers who are similar and able to help one another out in their quest to find fashion that fits.

Great post, I’ve not visited the site in a while and can see you’ve re-decorated. It’s looking nice! You also look completely different in terms of style in both of those pictures. In the right photo you look like really classy and prim and proper lady and in the left picture you look a bit edgy and have a rocker- don’t mess with me- kinda vibe about you. I think it’s also the poses that give these impressions. But you look great in both :-).

Thank you, Arash!

Both photos were different times of my life… but I feel like the balance of rocker and prim is kind of where my style falls. I’ve always joked I’ve got a rock n’ roll heart. (Sadly, over the years, I think I’ve quelled my rocker/punk side, and it’s rarely seen on this site… it’s something I’m slowly working on. Balance.)

That being said– I love that someone noticed!

I just commented on your post over at Already Pretty, but I wanted to tell you… my daughter walked in and saw the photos of you above … she said the one on the right made you look like a princess!

Such a great post! Glad I found you.
