How to use this group

Examples of great posts:

- wonderful plus size retro items you have found, be they overthings, underthings, and any other item that comes in plus sizes.

- asking where to find items that are often difficult to find in larger sizes, like hosiery, bras, etc. 

- questions about the fit of items and which are more accommodating for certain measurements.

- pictures and posts that are body positive. Had a great shoot where you felt curvy and fabulous? Feel free to share!

Please be mindful that:

- all bodies are good bodies, please no body-shaming of others or even your own. 

- even if someone is "not fat" or "not plus size" to you, doesn't mean they don't find that plus size clothing works best for them. 

- We always want to help out people who are at any end of the plus size spectrum. Straight sizing often ends at an XL or a 16, so finds in 18/3x and up are always welcome to many members.

It's that time of year, ladies - I'm freezing my butt off in dresses at work. Every year I go through the same struggle of trying (and usually failing!) to buy TRUE plus sized leggings and tights.…Continue

has anyone plus sized (2x) tried/worn/own the Evelyn Dress? my bust is 47-49 and am wondering if it would fit, or if it would  be too tight? I find my favorite dresses are the Heidi, The Netti and the Lana.

Hi Sandy! It's easier to reply to questions like yours when they're posted to the discussion forum section. Feel free to repost your question there so we can help you out.

Just an FYI:

I'm starting a discussion for anyone interested in improving our voluptuous selves through exercise and diet. There is ALREADY an awesome forum The Pinup Girls guide to Exercise and Nutritional Plans but I think THIS group's contingency would be super great at building the discussion there.

THANKS!

I have always been very curvy. I love that so many styles of PUG clothing flatter my figure. I just got rebra fitted at Lane Bryant I found out to be a 38DD. They were so helpful there and sexier then VS.When I went into other plus stores I would be treated not well due to not being a size28.so now I can find skirts or capris to go with some tops that can be more of a daily wear. As much as I love a dress everyday, I'd like to be active more with my daughter. Any plus size pinup from PA here?

Hi, Mrgan, Do you only wear PUG or are you also a vintage wearer?

Comment by Jill McCormick on May 3, 2013 at 2:08pm

IndeedI do! I sell vintage for a living so do have quite a selection (hope that's okay to say here,lol?!) For the detective look, I would of course, do pin curls with a side barette, a WWII simple dress in a bolder color like a red belted dress OR a 40s or 30s suit. Ah now, for the parlor, nothing will do but a 1930s full length  Summer party dress with a soft floral print! Oh how I DO love my vintage, hehehehe!
