A passion of mine is clothes, and as a plus size lady, I find that finding young, fashionable clothes to fit my figure is a trial. Big companies have started to develop ranges to include bigger sizes but I still feel this isn't enough. The clothes are being retailed at a higher price and plus size woman have to spend a fortune to be on trend.
As a teenager, my mother and I knew the struggles. I've always been big and as many other teenager, I wanted to wear the latest trends and the same clothes as my friends. However, I couldn't. I was forced to wear anything that fits, from any retailer that stocked my size. I didn't have a choice. I look back at old pictures of myself and cringe because I'm dressed like someone 4 or 5 times my age, just because the clothes fitted. And these days I feel the same.
I used to go on holiday with my friends or my husband and I couldn't find comfortable flattering clothes. I'm confined to massive kaftans and cut off denim trousers. I wanted to wear pretty sundresses. I wanted to wear a bikini that hides all my wobbly bits that doesn't cost £150. I wanted to feel good.
I am comfortable with my size and I want to embrace that.
This is where the idea for Sazzmatazz Clothing came from.
Whilst wandering around a plus size retailer, I thought to myself, 'I can do this, and it would be better'. Once I came to this realisation, the rest, as they say, is history.
Now please join me in the revolution of curves.
