A lot of the times I feel like its slim pickings in Toronto when it comes to plus size clothing. Unless you fit within the really limited 1x-3x category, there isn’t a lot to work with. So whenever I get word of a new store geared to us fat folk, I get really overwhelmed with excitement. SexyPlus Clothing is a (relatively) new store, just a baby at 2 years old. However, its become increasingly more popular in this booming city of mine and I just had to go out and see what it was all about. With promises of pin-up inspired garments and lingerie, I couldn’t get there fast enough. I spoke with the store’s owner privately (Stefanie Campbell) and discussed heading over to check out the goods. When I arrived she was so very welcoming and I instantly felt at ease and comforted. The store is rather small but quaint at that. I didn’t feel bombarded or anxious about being in a high volume area (the joys of having social anxiety!) and I felt relaxed enough to browse at my own speed.
Although most of the clothing was well out of my budget, I had no trouble finding many items I wanted to add to my wardrobe. After looking around and trying on a few pieces, I settled on this absolutely stunning black mesh dress. Albeit, this isn’t my usual style but I felt instantly in love and knew I needed to have it. I stashed this perfect number away until I could find just the right opportunity to wear it out and what better occasion then SexyPlus Clothing’s 2 year anniversary where I was the featured blogger. I’m really excited to play around with this dress and to see just how many ways I can dress it up (or down). So, if you’re in the general Toronto area, I highly suggest checking out this shop. 901 Yonge Street – just a few blocks outside of Rosedale station. I am certain you’ll walk away with something you love!
