Recently, I had the opportunity to try a few wonderful pieces from SWAK Designs. The company caters to plus-size women who want stylish, comfortable clothes. All too often I find adorable pieces in department stores that just don’t come in “normal,” much less plus-size options! I’ve been working on losing weight, so I tried the 1x options and found them to be perfect!
In the package I originally received from SWAK, there was a pair of the Whitney Palazzo Pants. All too often I find pants in this flattering, wide legged style to be either too big in the waist and too small in the thighs or vice versa. However, the Whitney style is PERFECT! Not only does it skim over my hips and thighs, creating a more flattering silhouette, but they’re wonderfully comfortable. Actually, I’m wearing them right now-one of my favorite aspects is their versatility. I’ve worn them out to run errands, at night for a nice dinner with the boy, in the house to do chores, and in bed! When most of my clothing was packed for the move, I pretty much lived in them! The Whitney pants are $41.99-and worth every single penny! (Available in Black, Navy, Grey-sizes 1x to 6x.)
Because I loved the Whitney pants so much, I decided to place an order with SWAK. Among the items I decided to try were the Gaucho pants. Due to my height (about 5’4″), they don’t hit me higher on the ankle like they do in the photo. However, that doesn’t stop them from being as comfortable and stylish as the Whitney pair. Now, one thing to keep in mind while wearing capri styles pants is that depending on wear they hit you on the calf, the pants can create a more choppy image that doesn’t allow the pants to flow and slim you. However, since they’re so comfortable and light weight for spring, I’d definitely recommend a pair-but I’d wear them with some of the season’s flattering, high heeled shoes (wedges, pumps, etc.). The Gaucho pants are $32.99 and come in Black, Brown, or Grey (size 1x-6x).
Of course, I needed a top to complete the look! I have a ton of tank tops from when they were on sale at Wal-Mart, but I like to layer them under nicer shirts for a classier look. I loved the Cheyenne top, as it’s flowing, loose style would keep with the soft appeal I was going for. Because there’s a bit of elastic under the bust, the top doesn’t look baggy. Rather, it’s fitted in a comfortable and sexy way. I selected mine in Black, but I also love the Rust (pictured). I think it would actually make a really sweet bathing suit cover-up in the summer. In the meantime, pair it with lighter tops and flowing pants or skirts. Since warmer weather and prettier colors are right around the corner, a pretty dress would look gorgeous under it! The Cheyenne is currently on sale for $25.99; unfortunately, only 1x is available right now.
When I placed my second order, I also decided to try a few dresses! I was planning on getting two different styles, but I love the Kayla so much that I ordered it in two different colors. Due to the fact that I’m incredibly pale year-round, I opted out of the white (although I’m thinking about ordering it now). Instead, I selected the gorgeous pale pink, and the soft turquoise. Once again, I was totally thrilled with the comfortability level and the super appealing look! My boyfriend caught me trying it on over jeans and loved it, so I’m looking forward to the weather to warm up a bit so I can start wearing them out! The dress is also on sale for $28.99, and is available in 1x-6x (not every color is available in every size).
