Fashion to Figure (Review)

ftf_logo I’d like to be able to blame Emma for my new post-baby figure but the truth is, I love to eat.  In fact, I can’t stop eating.  Now that summer is in full swing, I’m trying to have more self control and make better choices.  It’s not easy.  Did I mention I love food?

polkadotdress My weight has gone up and down over the years.  At one point I was a size zero – not a great look for me.  Luckily, you don’t have to be a size nothing to be fashionable.  At Fashion to Figure, trendy duds come in all shapes and sizes. 

075 I was so excited when I saw the Nautical Bolero on the Fashion to Figure site.  Tank tops are my summer staple but they’re not always appropriate, like when I’m attending Sunday mass.  I like to have shrugs and cardigans handy for a quick cover up, and this piece is perfect.  It covers my upper arms and fits comfortably, and the nautical style is perfect for summer.

The one thing I dislike about Fashion to Figure is the sizing labels.  According to their sizing chart, I’m a 1x in their clothing, which is equivalent to a size 12.  Not a typical sizing standard.  This is the smallest size available on the site.  I know it’s only a number, but these things do matter to consumers! 

Overall I’m impressed with the quality of the item I received, and the reasonable prices on Fashion to Figure.

No compensation was received for this post, but I did receive the product discussed free of charge in order to facilitate my review.  All of the opinions above are 100% my own.
