First off, I would like to thank you all for still rocking with me! Remember when I told y’all how happy I was to start grad school? Well, 7 classes in and I feel so much more empowered but SUPER TIRED!! But Chardline Chanel is still pushing! With that, over the past two months, I’ve asked everyone what Fall/Winter items they would like me to feature. Even though I initially wanted to do five separate posts, I thought it would be best to keep them all in one place. So here are the top 5 plus size fashion requests that I’ve received…all inspired by YOU:

  • Wide calf boots
  • Shapewear
  • Leather jackets
  • Tights
  • Fur Coats

Wide Calf Boots

We all know the battle with these bad boys, but here are some brands that I’ve personally tried, and my calves are 18 inches in circumference. Also, keep in mind that the bigger foot, the wider your calf size is for most brands. For example, if you are a size 8, the base size for the calf on a boot maybe 15 inches. If you are a size 11 like me, the base size for the calf on a boot may widen by three inches…so the largest part of the boot will be 18 inches or so. But if you are really stuck, check out this guide for more details. 




 

Plus Size Leather Jackets

I’ve had the same leather jacket for three years because nothing beats a classic jacket that can be worn from Fall-Spring. With that, here are my top places to get leather jackets this year:





Plus Size Shapewear

I am back to wearing shapewear these days. As much as I want the freedom to let it all hang, I like being tucked in and smooth. Here are my number one contesters! I’ve worn them all! If you’d like me to do a specific post showing the various levels of hold, let me know!!


 

I love tights, but as someone who is a size 22 and is 5’8, it’s hard to find tights that go up all the way. While some of my friends can get away with purchasing tight from Rainbow’s I am stuck hoping that anywhere fits. These places, on the other hand, fit all 57 inches of my hips and thighs! Side note, Avenue fits me the best because they go all the way up past my waist.




 

While fur coats are finally a hot ticket item that most brands are carrying for us, it’s super hard when you have arms that are very wide in circumference. But never fear, here are some furs that pass the arm test!



 

Find anything you like? Again, make sure you let me know if you want to see something specific!! Until next time,

Chardline.
