I wear lots of dresses.

Do you know what I hate? Dresses.

Ok, I’m exaggerating. I don’t hate dresses. I just don’t prefer them over my other options. With a body that looks like mine it can be so difficult finding plus size pants that fit and are comfortable I some times just give up. I put on the dress and succumb to the eternal comfort of not having a waist band digging into my belly button.

But why do I have to always wear things I don’t like? Because plus size clothing manufacturers don’t understand the shape of my body? Because hiding my VBO (visible belly outline) is what society taught me was “flattering”.

Fuck that.

I love pants, damn it! I love fancy pants! So this Fall I’m re-committing myself to exploring all my plus size fancy pants options, starting with the awesome black and white number I’m wearing above. I’m a plus size pants-loving babe on a mission.

What are your fave pants? Have you found a brand that just fits perfectly every single time? What do you wish you could find in plus-size-pants-land that doesn’t currently exist?

    I have the hardest time finding pants that fit well lately! It’s like ever store I go to has awesome patterns that look cute on the model, but when I get to the change room they’re SUPER tight around my lower belly (where I carry most of my weight). It’s so frustrating, and sizing up just makes everything else shapeless. I know not every plus-size woman has a big belly, but many of us do. I’m tired of having a seam make it look like I have an ass in the front AND back.

      YES!!!! The tightness in the belly is so real and WHYYYY like – how hard is it to just give us a little extra room in the belly area!?!?

    I broke up with pants a few years ago, but recently I got a pair of knit, elastic waist pants from Junonia that are called loose-fit leggings. They are super comfortable and I like them, although the style is not totally me. I love the look of woven pants, but I’m not willing to get pinched when I sit or move anymore! I’ve never found a stretch woven fabric that held its shape and was still as stretchy as a knit.

    I also need pants that come up a lot higher in the back than in the front, because there’s a lot more of me in the back than the front. The Junonia ones come up a little higher in the back, which probably works great for some bodies, but it’s not high enough to prevent the front from riding up unevenly for me.

      I’ve never even heard of junonia! I’m going to have to check them out! <3

    I have had a lot of luck with the ponte boot cut pants from Roamans. They have really good stretch and I can sit in them with no ride down. They have pretty good belly room and I’ve been wearing them for years. Just dont get the houndstooth pattern something about that pattern takes most of the stretch out of the material. I love their pinstripe pattern it makes my legs look long even though I’m only 5’4″. ?

    Hey Flow, thanks for the 40% off discount at threadup. I used it over the weekend. I do have a question about what sizes you buy. In one video you said you wore a 26 on the bottom but what size are you on top? I tired 7 different exposed arm and shoulder tops on this weekend and found I am too broad in my shoulders for them. I also want to say thanks for making the vlog, it’s very helpful and a lot of fun.. Chris from Detroit

      I usually wear a size 24/26 on top and a 26/28 on the bottom! Tops can be tricky – if you have broad shoulders definitely go one size up! <3

    I broke up with anything with a structured waistband last year after I realized that wearing jeans made me feel like I was being sawed in half. I’ve had some luck with maternity-type cuts, buuuut I already look about 6 months pregnant on a good day, so accentuating that isn’t my favorite thing ever. Plus, maternity pants leave you FOREVER pulling them up because they just don’t stay put!!

    I love dresses these days too but man. Sometimes I just would like a pair of pans that fits AND doesn’t have a leggings-type waistband.

    I have a hard time ordering pants from online sources because I just have to try the damn things on. And returning stuff is just a PITA unless they actually have a retail store because they so often ship things in a bag that can’t be reused.
    My lower body is not easy to fit- long legs, narrow hips, big belly, thick front to back, skinny legs but no butt. Yeah. Nobody really makes pants for that.
    Miss Corissa, can I ask how tall you are and/or what your inseam typically is? You seem tallish.

    I’d love to find something where the long sleeve actually hits me at MY wrist. I’m reduced to rolling them up, having them altered or going with 3/4 length sleeves. I’m used to hemming everything because I’m short, but I’m fat so to find a shirt that will fit my big 44F (DDD) boobs and my even larger belly means the shoulders are now dropped and the sleeve is too long (or too big). And BTW I don’t want to look like I shop at Lane Bryant, I’m not 93.
