Although there is a lot more choice amongst retailers and brands these days for the fatties, there are always those just out of our reach across the pond that it just isn’t cost effective to place too many orders with, if any, due to shipping costs and custom charges, but nonetheless they have a great deal of pretties I would desperately like to get my grubby little mits on! So, when Debz came up with the idea of a challenge where we put together a wish list based around our fave international brands and retailers, I thought it was a really good idea, and decided to get involved.
One of my absolute fave brands is Modcloth, and I have been lucky to get my hands on a few items thanks to the lovely Becky and her blog sale, and the fact they every now and again run a Stylish Surprise where you pay a much reduced price for a dress, other apparel, shoes or accessories, and the cost generally comes in under the customs bracket, as long as you stick to the one item…. Lol! The only problem there is you only know what size you will get, you don’t actually know what you will get, it’s like a lucky dip, and so much fun!
So, to start with here is my Modcloth Wish List:
The plus size range go up to a 4XL, 28/30.
Next up is IGIGI. Not the cheapest available out there, but definitely if you want something a little bit special these are your guys! I have seen a few bloggers who have managed to get their hands on items, and they look amazing. I would love one of their gowns for the up and coming Model XL pagent.
So here is my Igigi Wish List:
Igigi sizes also go up to a size 30.
And finally, Pin Up Girl Clothing. You know I’m a sucker for a bit of 50’s style, and having seen both Georgina from Fuller Figure Fuller Bust, as well as a few other bloggers wearing their frocks, I can’t help but swoon!
And here is my PUG Clothing Wish List, again with sizes up to a 4X. This one was a tough one, I could spend a lot of money here:
So if money was no object, shipping fees weren’t so astronomical, or customs charges didn’t exist, where would you spend your pennies? You might get some inspiration from reading some of the other beautiful bloggers posts taking part in this challenge, so make sure you check them out:
