No pun intended but one of the big markets for ladies clothes is plus size clothing. While the broadest market is the so-called middle range of clothing, those people with slightly different requirements have the greatest need for special attention. It can be discouraging to go shopping for an outfit that is at either end of the size spectrum – either tiny sizes or plus sizes.
It only makes sense that the manufacturers would makeladies clothes galore in the middle range. Think of the bell curve factor where the big part of the bell curve is in the middle and you can see why there are lots of clothes in size 12. And lots of choices. Sure, there are plus size clothing stores that cater to ladies clothes in sizes that are at the end of the curve but if you live in a small town, finding a lot of choices may be a challenge. The same can be said for ladies shoes. If you have a size 4 foot, try to find a strappy high-heeled sandal in red. Then again, there might be many choices if you wear a size 7 shoe.
One of the other things about ladies clothes that is interesting is the way that current fashions suddenly appear and then just as suddenly disappear. To use an example or two from the past, think of the blouses with big puffy sleeves worn with a fitted vest or a princess line dress with the high waist. One year these are the height of ladies clothing fashion. Two years later if a woman showed up at a party wearing one of these outfits, that poor soul would be considered hopelessly outdated. However, maybe 15 years later, a princess line dress would be the zenith of fashion in ladies clothing.
If you happen to be looking for the perfect outfit and you cannot find what you want in your local stores, do not make the two classic mistakes that so many women have made. Do not browse through the ladies clothes and settle for something that is not your dream outfit. And do not buy something that is the wrong size. It is guaranteed that you will not wear the wrong size or enjoy the wrong style for very long. It is also guaranteed that you will not have fun in any outfit that fails in style and fit because you will feel uncomfortable and awkward and you will not end up enjoying the event.
