Hey all I was fumbling through the pages of the Skorch magazine mini mag (well virtually anyway) and found an ad for Figuresque.com

I'd never heard of their site and being the plus size fashionista I am, I decided to take a look. They carry sizes from 1X to 6X which I think is great since so many "plus size" clothing sites don't carry sizes that large.

Then I notice they don't have models modeling the clothes and the lingerie photos are stock photos with straight size models. Now if any of you follow me on twitter you know I can't stand when clothing sites don't have models in the clothes and or have straight sized (not plus size) models when they exclusively sell plus clothes. It usually bothers me to the point where I can't even continue browsing the site much less buy anything but this time it was a little different.

They have a decent selection of cute tops in 1x to 3x and the prices are pretty nice. I must say I was disappointed in the 4x to 6x top selection as well as the dress and skirt selection. Not much too see there.

Over all I'd say this is a site I would shop at and return to. The prices are right with cute, trendy and feminine pieces. They don't have everything you need for your wardrobe but what site does? They definitely do have some very cute items that will pull your wardrobe together nicely.
So go check 'em out www.figuresque.com is Ariluv approved!

P.S. If anyone reading this is associated with Figuresque.com please try and get some plus models on the site. If you need help with this I'll be glad to lend a hand :)

I was actually able to get passed the no plus models thing because I notice they have some pretty cute tops and shrugs including this one.


The $24.95 price tag made it even more appealing I mean c'mon people we are in a recession. This shrug is the perfect thing to pair with a cute dress or dress up a tank and jeans. Definitely not as boring as most shrugs I've seen or even own.

I also loved this ruffle black shrug. I have the perfect strapless olive green dress to go with it. Also $24.95


I know the plus clothing market is over saturated with kimono tops but I would actually wear this one. So pretty and it's only $25.95


Last item is this black lace top. This piece is so feminine and pretty I just had to feature it and the best part it's got the right price $25.95



  1. I couldn't agree with you more re: this site not using plus sized models. Almost seems rejecting in a way which is just crazy considering their target market. There are so many beautiful women out there that could model these clothes!

  2. Thanks for the info. I've never heard of this site before but I'll definitely check it out! The non plus size model thing tends to annoy me, but I too overlook it if the clothes and prices are right!
