Personally I’ve never felt like vanity sizing by brands did me any favors... until shopping Free People last weekend with my hubby now that I fall more on the plus size side of body types at a 14/16 . FP sizing varies so much depending on what item and how the brand customized it individually to fit. Especially when it comes to their more oversized style pieces and “basics” like tees or sweaters, there are options still for sure at my size. Thus, it feels like I‘m capable of still shopping at one of my favorite stores when I *technically* don’t match their sizing chart any longer. Let me break down how I tackle finding new looks for a curvy shape from a straight size store. Note: I purchased a Large or X-Large in everything I got that day and it all fit pretty well.
I'd love to share more looks with y'all and would love to try tackling another brand -- if you have any ideas or suggestions, feel free to reach out on Instagram @thekeybykate or on here in the comment section below.
Thanks for checking out how this curvy girl went to Free People and found some key Fall pieces!
