By Nina Ashe, SexyPlus Clothing Blogger Ladies... what's with the jiggle?  What’s more, what about those horrid panty lines or worse - egad! - the bright colourful granny panties shining through thin material?  I'm not just pointing at the sexy plus sized ladies, but the slimmies too. Now, don't you dare give me any excuses: “I feel constricted.” “It makes me sweaty.” “I don't really need it.” Uh-huh.  Can you ladies just picture my I’m-not-buying-it look? Shapewear is no longer a dirty word. This is neither our grannies’ girdle nor our Victorian ancestors' corsets. This is modern, breathable, flexible, hold-you-up, tuck-you-in...

Forgive but don’t Forget

bbw blog Blog Lifestyle plus size clothing canada

By Nina Ashe, SexyPlus Clothing Blogger I was commenting to a friend how some women either dress in the dark or just don’t seem to care about the image they put out there.  How a little confidence, flattering colors and some posture might do them and the rest of the world some good.  How just thinking of themselves as sexy women, plus size or otherwise, would change their outward appearance. And that’s when my friend reminded me that some of “us” still live in constant fear, pain and humiliation… the kind that, whether subtle or violent, grinds you down every day...

   A More of me to Love Blog Post by Patricia Morgado April 23 2010 Why Wasn’t Fashion For Me? For a long time I thought fashion wasn’t for me. I always loved it, but I just couldn’t relate to the pictures I saw in fashion magazines.  I loved to adorn myself, but at the same time I believed that my body wasn’t fashionable enough. I couldn’t fit into the sizes of the jeans that were available in the coolest stores, and to be honest, that made me suffer for a long time.  However, at some point I realized that...

Your Own Worst Enemy...

BBW Blog confidence Lifestyle plus size clothing plus size clothing canada sexy plus size clothing sexy plus sizes

By Nina Ashe, SexyPlus Clothing Blogger Many of us do not realize what we believe when we look in the mirror.  Many of us do not see our own image but someone else's image that we feel we must please, thinking it might be of value.  But there is no value or glory playing second fiddle to someone else.  You cannot live your life with someone else's image.  It means self-destruction: you become your worst enemy. You are your worst enemy when you want to be perfect.  You become fearful of making a mistake, so you don't assert yourself; therefore you...
