It is a common myth that just because a lady is “plus size” means they are totally unhealthy. This may not always be the case. For example, plus size in the modeling industry is anything over size 6. However, plus size according to most designers in regards to plus size formal dresses is generally anything that is over a size 16. But you can be a six foot tall woman and be a size 16 and not necessarily look large. Some people carry their weight differently than others. So there is a lot of discrepancy out there in regards to what constitutes a plus size female .
Most would agree that a healthy diet and decent exercise is always going to be a good thing . Since the majority of Americans are now working behind a desk most of the day and not walking as much as they used to….many of us have lost that daily movement that is crucial to stay a bit more fit. So we all have to make a larger effort to work the exercise in so that we will not become unhealthy.
You will hear many times a bride shopping for plus size marriage dresses will say….I want to wait before I order so I can lose some weight before my wedding. Here at Darius Cordell Coutureï»¿ï»¿ï»¿ï»¿ï»¿ï»¿ ï»¿ we hear this a lot! And this is an perceivable concern since all brides want to look their best on their wedding day. But what about getting healthy for all days – not just losing weight for your wedding day. What happens after the wedding? Are you going to go back to not exercising or not taking care of yourself? It is of my thought that if you are going to lose weight do it for the right reasons and not just for one affair. The over all goal is to make sure you are as healthy as conceivable inside and out.
Oddly enough women shopping on line for plus size evening gowns come across a bit different. These are usually women who are not planning on losing any weight at all. They are just the size they are and are dealing with it. Most of the clients who contact us for plus size ball gowns are usually mothers of the bride, performers, or just socialites needing one more piece to add to their collection.
Most full figured ladies with larger arms or bigger thighs will tell you the same things about shopping retail stores for plus size women’s clothing. When looking for plus size dresses for after five, cocktail, or special occasion formals most will tell you that it is very hard to find a good selection in their particular sizes. Either the designs for larger women are horrendous… or they simply do not have the merchandise in the salon for them to try on so they wind up ordering from a photo .
This is where our fashion designer expertise assist our client . We have assisted plus size brides and evening wear women for over a decade . When buyers are unable to find what they need for their fuller figured frame they begin to look through alternative means like the net and ultimately find our establishment .
All designs shown on the darius cordell couture catalog can be made in all measurements including a plus size figure or configuration. What a lot of clients do not understand in regards to trying on social occasion dresses is that it is not like “trying on” a bra, blouse or a pair of pants. Formal Dresses are altogether a completely different story . Many times even if a beaded garment is in truth in stock available for somebody to try on it most of the time will not look good on them. The cause for that is simple. That off the rack item was not cut for them or their particular body shape . For instance it may have been a long sleeve evening gown with a high v neck and with an a-line skirt. Well possibly your neck line is longer than someone else’s – therefore meaning instead of the hole of the neck to the bust line being 5 inches as it would on a size 10….your measurement there may be a 11 due to your bust size. But the off the rack item does not make allowances for such. Or for example your upper body may be 20 inches from the top of your shoulder to your waistline where as someone else may be only 16 inches from that point. Yet the off the rack item does not allow for that as well. This is why when you are considering spending a substantial amount of cash on a formal dress it is usually best to have that plus size designer dress made to measure instead of trying to get something off the rack to work.
To aid the consumer get use to this way of thinking we have them ask themselves a few questions. Does the item in the pic hide what I want to hide? And does it show what I want to show? If it does (either as shown or with changes) then at that point all you have to do is simply have that item made in YOUR measurements and according to your specific body shape. Then you do no have to trouble about what will “look good on” or not – as the item has already met your visual preferences and now the fit requirements are taken care of as well since it was a made to order designer gown. There are a few Darius Cordell Customer Testimonials from plus size women over the years that are posted on our website for all to see.
