ACCORDING to the basic principles of economics, demand and supply should be directly related. Why then are we seeing an increase in size zero outfits in high street shops when the average Irish woman's size is a healthy twelve?
Fashion and style are a personal reflection and shouldn't be restricted by size. This is why Curvy Chic, located in Gorey, Co. Wexford, has decided to dedicate its styling expertise to the natural feminine curve.
Catering for sizes 16 to 34, Curvy Chic provides fashion, trends and over 25 top labels to the plus size lady.
Among the labels carried are Signature, Zhenzi, Elena Grunert, Fred Sabatier and Elena Miro. Through this vast and sophisticated label range, Curvy Chic also caters for grand occasions such as wedding wear for mother of the bride and groom. It also carries an array of shoes and accessories to suit any occasion.
Curvy Chic hopes to change how plus sized women think about themselves. They wish to dispel the belief that the design of plus sized clothing is to hide the body. Instead it wishes to highlight the fact that we all have assets to be proud of and, no matter what the size, everyone has parts they wish to hide and parts that should be accentuated.
The trick is to find the style that suits you. Curvy Chic advises that you give yourself time to try on different styles and colours. To help you in finding your own style Curvy Chic offers a wide variety of colours, patterns and styles to suit every season and occasion.
Curvy Chic is about possibilities and the shop is full of endless choice in terms of different styles, shapes, colours, lengths and labels to suit every plus size.
