A Letter From The Editor
For women large enough to wear a plus-size, fashion can be especially confusing. There's a nebulous line between fashion as a series of fads, and fashion as the art of dressing in a way which compliments your body and appearance. The fads will always be here, helping to create photographs we cringe at 20 years from now. The art of dressing well for your body will also always be here, bringing pleasure to those who master it and confusion to those who haven't. For plus-size women, fad and flattering styles are rarely the same, and standard fashion advice can be disasterous if adopted. Hopefully, this issue will have a few tips for everyone, from teens to professionals. Our contributors explore wardrobe essentials, buying certain kinds of clothing, and even how to ditch the traditional bathing suit for something more practical.
