cushie b Review and Giveaway, ends 5/3/15




I AM A PLUS-SIZE WOMAN!

That's right -- you heard me! And I am just fed up with ugly "fat clothes".  Just because I've gained (and kept) extra weight doesn't mean I don't want to look stylish and fashionable.  I DO!

It's sometimes very difficult for women my size (smaller and larger) to find clothing that looks chic, upscale, and modern.

Wild orange florals are NOT for me. I look like a pumpkin.  Black may be slimming but it's also rather maudlin at times. I love colours that whisper rather than shout.  Comfort, too, is very important. I like clothes in which I can function: work, play, club, and travel.

Surfing the net for plus-size shops, I discovered, to my happy surprise, the amazing cushie b.  I fell in love immediately. Beautiful clothes, thoughtfully designed.  Clothes that will fit me and all of my plus-size sisters of the heart.

This is the divine Teal Blue/Navy Draped Kimono. Lovely, is it not?




It's also available in Silver Grey/Black and Deep Red/Wine in sizes 1X - 3X.

I was delighted when the folks at cushie b offered my the opportunity to review an item of clothing for them. I must've spent 2 hours trying to decide... I finally narrowed it down and asked them to choose for me!

When the package arrived... I actually cried.

I received the stunning Periwinkle Blue Cozy Draped Blanket Cardigan.  Oh, how I wish that it was winter coming on and not summer!  I want to wear this all the time.





The photos do NOT do this cardigan justice. It was a rather warm day, too. Darn it.

The back is long and covers my backside (thankfully).  It will be such a blessing come the cold weather.

The Cozy draped blanket cardigan has a cable back yoke and ribbed sleeves. Made of 100% extra fine merino wool.  It retails for $155.00 USD.




Please keep in mind that you are looking at a woman who is barely 5' 3" (Happy Husband claims I am only 5' 2").  This will definitely fit differently on a taller woman. I am wearing a 3X and truthfully wish I'd ordered a 2X.  I've lost more weight than I thought!



As summer approaches, cushie b has some gorgeous TopsShoulder Tops, and Knitwear.  All beautiful and all perfect for the plus-size woman!

DRUM ROLL PLEASE!

The generous folks at cushie b have kindly offered one of my readers the chance to win a lovely, stylish Tee from their shop! How  amazing is that?

One lucky winner will be blessed with a High Low Hem Short Sleeve T-shirt in the size and colour of their shirt!

Available sizes 1X (14-16), 2X (18-20) , 3X (22-24). Colours:  Black and Mediterranean Blue. Retails for $49.00

I like the Black Cozy Draped Blanket Cardigan. I only wish that so many of the tops did not come down so far in the front. I have that problem with a lot of plus size clothes.
