Plus Size Retro Clothing & Swimwear!
Let’s face it pinups, not all of us are a size 2-10 but those days of it being difficult or nearly impossible to find amazing plus sized clothing are now over thanks to a few amazing brands that are changing the game as we know it!
My inspiration for this post?–All of you gorgeous curvaceous pinup girls out there who don’t know where to even look when it comes to fabulous retro plus sized clothes.
My resource for all things plus sized and perfect? Tess Munster, a BEAUTIFUL & FABULOUS plus sized model who inspires women all over the world to love themselves whatever their size. Let me tell you a little more about this fierce and fabulous lady…Tess has been turned down from modeling gigs, bashed, teased, bullied, and shunned by the most vicious and ruthless kind of people in the world because of her size but continues to turn her troubles into triumphs by living out her dreams as a famous plus sized model and makeup artist in the heart of LA. She is the go-to-model for plus sized brands all over the world, has been featured in countless magazines, and was the face of the TV show called “Heavy” on A&E. Her fearlessness and achievements continue to challenge society’s standards of women who are over a size 10. She is proof and the perfect example that women of any size, any color, any race, can be someone if they learn to love what makes them different because we are all special in our own very unique way.
I had to include her in this post to inspire many of you who aspire to be as great as Tess. She inspires me and I am a size 2! Thanks to her I discovered all of these amazing plus sized retro brands that offer you the same sexy, sassy, classy, and fun clothes brands offer to the size 2’s and 4’s.
