The Spectacular Plus Sized Fashion from Simply Be Remains Spectacular

Here is my review for 3 new items from Simply Be Fashions

Simply Be Fashions


I was lucky enough to be contacted by a lovely person representing Simply Be Fashions, the UK based online plus-sized fashion site, to do a review on a few items of theirs.

As you know, I love Simply Be. Their quality is great, their prices are fair and the fashions are right on target.

Their sizing is from 8-28 which is pretty amazing, since most plus size stores only go up to a 3X.

There is something for everyone and for every occasion: from jeans to cocktail dresses; from shoes (including the hard-to-find wide width)  to jewelry; and much more.

These are 3 things that I picked out:


  1. Shape and Sculpt Skinny Jeans


These premium Shape and Sculpt skinny jeans are engineered with multidirectional stretch denim to respond to your curves and retain their shape. They contain Tencel to provide ultimate comfort. Featuring a comfortable high rise with hidden Magisculpt control panel to help flatten your tummy and hold you in. Designed with intelligent seaming to define and lift your bottom, making them the ultimate must-have jeans.
Machine washable.
70% Cotton, 21% Tencel, 7% Polyester, 2% Elastane.
I cannot tell you how much I LOVE these jeans.
I thought my days of wearing jeans were over.
These are so light and comfy and slip-on so easily that I feel that I can wear these forever. (There are 2 buttons and a zipper, however, I was able to just slip them on.)

My jeans did not fit snug like in the picture on the site, but I think that’s because I ordered them a size too large.

Finally, pants I can tuck a shirt into.

The color is magnificent. Sort of an indigo blue.

I like the ‘give’ that comes from the great materials used.

I definitely think that I’ll get a lot of wear out of them and they are just so light feeling, so unlike regular jeans.

2.  Red Floral Cami Skater Dress

I ordered this dress at the end of summer because the temperatures where I live stay hot for at least another 2 months.

Also, I couldn’t resist this.



A fabulous throw-on summer dress. This easy to wear piece is perfect for these warmer months. This is a sleeveless jersey stretch cami dress in a fit and flare silhouette.
Machine washable.
97% Polyester, 3% Elastane.
Unfortunately, this just did not fit well.
The armholes are a little large so you will have to be carefull with the bra you wear underneath and I just used a black bandeau.
It’s so comfy and beautiful though. I love the colors so much.
I think I can make it work with a belt and maybe hemming it up a bit.
This is meant for someone taller and as I am only 5’1″, I felt like I was swimming in it.
Love the neckline, though.

Finally, I chose these great shoes:

Heavenly Soles Slingback Shoes:



Everyone needs a pair of these pointed-toe slingback pumps from Heavenly Soles. A choice of colors means they are so versatile they can be worn with any outfit.
Upper: Other materials. Linings and sock: Other materials. Sole: Other materials.
Heel: 3in/75mm. Wide E Fit.
These are gorgeous! Just the most beautiful coral and they fit perfectly. Who knew? Wide-width pointy toe shoes!



Simply Be remains the same high quality, great fashion plus-size store it’s always been.

I wish that I had remembered from before that everything runs a little large, because then the jeans would have fit perfectly.

I do love the jeans, however. They are so comfy and look great and I’ve never been so comfortable in any pair of pants.

So….get to Simply Be and have some fun!

Happy Shopping!

I Found My New Favorite Wide Width Shoes and they’re By David Tate

Usually, I live in my white or black Skechers slip-ons for running around. They were my favorite shoes by far. Not only are they super comfortable but they also come in wide sizes.

I don’t know if Lulu, my shi-tzu, vomited in my black skecher or what substance it could be, however, once I saw them, they were going in the garbage.

I didn’t see Skechers in my size (which is a 6W) so I had to resort to the place I should have started first:

As you know, I love the company, FOOT SMART,com. When you have horrible feet like I do, you can’t just walk into Dillard’s and find a pair that fits.

So, once I decided to throw out the shoes LuLu threw up on, I went on the hunt. It was so difficult because of my strict criteria: they MUST be comfortable, be made well, have wide sizes, have some kind of a heel, and be fashionable.

When I ended up at, I found what I wanted. In my size. There are also sizes wider than what I bought.

Here is The David Tate Paris Wedge Slide Sandals

davidtateThese shoes are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever bought.

They come in sizes 5-12 and size width Narrow to WWE/Wide Wide.

The colors are black or brown.

Here’s the description:

Stride on waves of comfort in this moderate wedge. The contoured foam footbed has unique wave ridges for feel-good cushioning, while the synthetic sockliner provides a smooth feel against your skin. Look chic in the suede upper with eye-catching stitching, and get a just-right fit from adjustable hook-and-loop bands over the toe and instep. You’ll rise to new heights with the moderate wedge and platform on a flexible rubber outsole.

These sell for $84.95, however with a promo code and free shipping, it came to $67.90. I always try to remind my readers about using promo codes and free shipping options.

They were sent to me very quickly (as always) and they were exactly as advertised.

I love the fact that I can make the straps shorter or longer to really fit my foot well.
