Simply Lovely: A Review of

I'm wearing my Moon Print Tunic
Introduction. Happy Holidays Blog Readers! I’m so thrilled to be on holiday break. I’ve got my Harry Connick, Jr. and Michael Bluble Christmas Albums out and I’m planning my Christmas Parties! My post this week is going to highlight a 100% plus-size (Sizes 10-28) oriented site.! This is my new favorite place to shop and it was introduced to me by fellow blogger, Franceta Johnson (Thanks Girl!).
Ruby Rocks Playsuit

Style. Fairly conservative, this is my favorite new place for work clothes, school clothes, and casual holiday parties. Caters to a clientele between 25-45 years old, but not limited to this age range.
Price Range. Not bad, not bad at all! A casual dress on average runs about $75 and their party dresses are all under $200. However, I have ordered from SimplyBe four times and I have not paid full price once. They seem to always have fantastic sales and promo codes going.

Fairisle Sweater
Size&Fit. They run a bit big, but I feel like this is typical of shops that cater to the plus-size market only. I like things a bit roomy though. I don’t like to feel constricted. So, I’ve enjoyed almost everything I’ve purchased.

Have this & LUV it!
Quality&Construction. So far I’ve had no complaints about the quality of my garments. I feel like it’s actually quite good. I’ve followed the cleaning instructions given on the tag inside the garments and they’ve all maintained their shape and color just fine. And nothing feels fragile, which is good for me because I really wear my clothes. Over all I give the Quality an A!

Sheer Skirt Dress
Shipping&Returns. Shipping takes FOREVER. They are coming from England (which the customer service operator never fails to remind me every time I call to see where in the world my stuff is) and sometimes I think maybe my stuff is coming over on the Mayflower. So, while the wait is worth it, if you are in The States, do not shop here for last minute events. Also, a note, and perhaps my only real complaint, twice I have ordered a garment and said garment was first back ordered and then cancelled with out notice. Make sure you check the status of your order and if something is back ordered be sure to keep track of it. If they happen to cancel it, make sure they give you your money back. Returns are quite simple, they send a prepaid return sticker with your package, you just fill out a form and stick it in the mail. No fuss. I like that.
Print Dress With Belt
Recap. I highly recommend to all my plus-sized friends and readers! To be honest, when I first discovered them, I immediately sent the link to about 5 of my friends and family members. So if that’s not a recommendation I don’t know what is! Just be weary of the time it will take for your order to ship and also make sure to track your order!

Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping!
