Shopping As A Petite Woman

Posted on July 9, 2021 at 8:16 am

Life as a petite woman can be difficult. With brands focusing highly upon plus size, maternity, and general women ranges. The lack of clothes for petite women is astonishing. People do not seem to realise that petite women are around, and it is extremely difficult to find clothes suitable.

Shopping as a petite woman is a challenge. You will find that any stores with petite clothes seem to follow on set style. You do not get the wide variety of options that other women are offered. You will also find that there’s one theme, petite women are portrayed as short and slim, but this is not always the case. Shopping as a slightly taller yet slim petite woman is difficult. As it is if you are more on the plus size yet still shorter. The clothes are made for one specific size. So, we need to raise awareness of all different sizes in women and their different body types. Making shopping easier for all women!

Maternity Ranges – Are They Worth It?

Posted on May 14, 2021 at 11:05 am

If you are a woman and are pregnant or have ever been pregnant, it is likely you will have or will need to purchase maternity clothes to accommodate for your newly developed bump. But upon shopping, it is ready to notice that maternity clothes seem to be slightly more expensive than others, so are they truly worth the money?

For your own comfort, maternity clothes are 100% worth the slightly higher price tag. With them being specially created to accommodate for a pregnant mums bump and keep her comfortable.

While it may be possible to buy the next size up in clothing, this can make some mums feel down as they do not like to think their sizes are increasing. This way may also not offer as much comfort and support to you and your bump. So while it will save you a small amount of money, it is more worth it to purchase maternity clothes.

Shopping As A Plus Sized Woman

Posted on March 16, 2021 at 3:04 pm

Shopping for anyone can be a daunting process, with us each coming across our own issues when shopping for new clothes. One group of people who come across the most complications are plus-sized women. Today, we are going to share with you what some of the most common issues are for plus-sized women when shopping for clothes.

Plus-sized and Tall
For some reason, shops across the world have this misconception that plus-sized also means that the woman is tall. Meaning not only are the clothes being made wider to fit their curvy bodies, but they are also being made longer. This is not the case, not every plus-sized woman is taller. This misconception is making it difficult for women to buy clothes to fit their bodies.

Fabric Choices
Another common issue in the plus-sized shopping world is fabric choices. Production companies think it is acceptable to use cheaper material to make plus-sized clothing yet still charge the same prices. We understand that you are using more fabric, but quality does still matter. Plus-sized clothing should be made from the material of the same quality, giving everyone equal opportunities with clothing.

No Mannequins?
Another issue that is faced in the plus-sized shopping world is that there are no mannequins. How this is possible, nobody truly knows. Plus-sized women still want to see what the clothes would look like on a body of a similar size and style to theirs. Not the general mannequins used in clothing stores. Introducing plus-sized mannequins may even boost sales of plus-size clothing as women will be less afraid of purchasing after seeing it on somebody else.

The year is 2021, and these issues are still occurring in the shopping industry. We are all learning to love the bodies we were given, but surely it is time for plus-sized women to be treated with the same respect as every other shopper out there.

Ensuring Your Children Are Snow-ready

Posted on January 8, 2021 at 2:14 pm

Snow is one type of weather which all children will become excited for. With it not occurring often throughout the year, as soon as snowfall begins, everyone wants to head outside to play. Today, we are going to share with you what you need to ensure your children are snow-ready!

Firstly, you should ensure they have a good pair of wellies. These are an excellent kind of footwear to wear in the snow, due to them keeping their feet warm and dry. Pairing these with layers of fluffy socks will make their feet snow-ready.

You should also invest in a nice pair of thick gloves. Cheaper gloves will not keep their hands warm or dry for very long. If they are wanting to play for hours, investing in a nice pair of waterproof gloves to keep their hands safe.

Finally, coats are a must. Again, these will help to keep your child warm when playing out in the snow. As well as keeping them nice and dry.

Is Online Shopping Really A Downer?

Posted on November 16, 2020 at 4:13 pm

Right now in England, we have entered another national lockdown. Meaning all no essential stores have closed, only being open for click and collect or delivery. Most people saw this as a huge disadvantage, however, this is not the case. There are many benefits to only being able to clothes shop online. The main benefit of shopping online is that you are able to look across multiple stores at one time. Allowing you to find the best deal for the product which you are after. You can also head straight to the sale section, filter these selections by your size. Allowing you to know exactly what is available to you at sale prices. Making it easier for you to save money without needing to hunt through loads of sale rails. Finally, It gives you time to decide. When you head out shopping you normally want to buy items there and then. But, purchasing online allows you time to think as you can save products for later and head back another day. You may be discouraged by the fact that you will have to wait 5 days for delivery. But it will be an exciting time when the post man arrives at your door with your order.

Making The Most Out Of Your Money

Posted on August 24, 2020 at 10:30 am

There are many ways to make the most out of your money when buying clothes. Im going to give you some of my personal tips on this topic.

1- Charity Shops
Charity shops are not always full of old clothes. You can find some beautiful items within these shops. These will be for a fraction of the cost of buying them new. You can also find some one-off pieces which no one else will be wearing.

2- Sales
Do your shopping in the end of season sales. Buying your summer clothes in the end of summer sales ready for next year will save you loads of money. Clothes can get put down by 75%, sometimes more, when they want the stock to go.

3- Carboot Sales
Similarly to charity shops, carboot sales allow you to buy second hand clothes for cheaper prices. You can find designer clothes, one-off pieces and more. Saving you lots of money to spend else where.

Reusing Old Clothes

Posted on July 16, 2020 at 11:37 am

With the spread of Covid-19, it is becoming more difficult to sell unwanted clothing. Charity shops are closed, so we can’t donate them either. This is the perfect time to reuse your old clothes. I’m here to give you some ideas.

One way you can reuse your old clothes is making them into face masks. From the 24th of July 2020, it is compulsory to wear face masks when you go into shops. So what better time to make them when they are needed.
Another way you can reuse your old clothes is cutting them up. This may sound silly, but you will be able to use the smaller pieces as rags for cleaning. This will be a lot cheaper than buying new cleaning cloths you run out.
Finally, if you have any children, you could adjust the sizes of your tops and make summer dresses for your little girls. They will like dressing up in Mummy’s clothes.

What to do with any unwanted clothes

Posted on May 27, 2018 at 8:23 pm

If like many of us, you have many items of clothing simply sitting in your wardrobe that have not been worn for years, or even ever. There are many ways you can sort out your clothes and make some space for some more newer items.

Charity shop- handing your items of clothing to a local charity shop is a great option, or bagging the items up and placing them in a charity clothes bin near you. This way your clothes can be used to make money towards a charitable cause.

Sell them- once you have sorted through your clothes, you may find some of the items are worth selling. With many new clothes selling sites, selling old and new clothing is made so much easier. Vintage clothing is still popular, so what may be old to you may be a vintage find for someone else.

Either option will help create some space in your wardrobe, and provide you with enough space to head out on a new shopping spree.
