Fashion for the Plus Size Fashionista
I know everyone sees that I have BBW tacked on to my name. It stands for Big Beautiful Woman. For those that didn't know, it is the large size version of those little bitty females so many people aspire to be. Well there are fashion designers out there that cater to the plus size, although not as numerous as the ones that like the size zeros. Here are a few that you can look into if you are into looking great! (Click designer's name to go to website)
