Being a woman under thirty but with a less-than-lithe body can be a shopping challenge. I’ve hovered around a size 14-16 for most of my adult life. (Uh huh. I said it. And I’m hot.) It’s not difficult to dress a body with dangerous curves, but finding clothes that look young can be a massive challenge. Plus size clothes can often be cut much more generously, so if you’re petite like I am, you get lost in them. I know Stacy and Clinton (shut up, I love them- they remind me of my BFFs Amy and Eamon) eschew wearing juniors clothing, but I drool every time I get the Alloy and Delia*s catalogs. Flatteringly cut clothes at non-designer prices, and the extended sizes offerings are decent. I especially love their offerings every fall- the pieces are indeed young, but can easily be worked into the wardrobe of a working woman as well. One simple request- make everything in the complete range of sizes!
