Great Style Has Nothing to Do with Size.

Fun fact: Most of my clients are over 40 and wear size 12 and up.

Most, okay all, are not crazy about their bodies, and you should know neither are the ladies who wear a size 2 to 10.  Go figure.

I really care about how my clients feel about themselves and it is my specialty to make their figures look good with the right clothes, and dessert need not be skipped to wear them.

These are my favorite labels for my clients, and since sharing is caring, here they are.

JM Collection a private label brand for Macy’s.

This dress has slimming details and yes, you can easily add a light topper to cover your arms.

This JM top has a criss cross hem design, which is a subtle way to visually reduce the tummy and hip area.

JM also has great pull-on pants.


Lysee makes the most incredibly comfortable, suck you in at the right places, leggings and pants.

Note the seams on these pull on pants. This detail makes the legs look taller and thinner, and yes they come in black.

Nic & Zoe  Nordstroms, Bloomingdales

Nic & Zoe designs her clothes to minimize the middle, be comfortable and look very stylish.
Notice the angles in this printed top. They visually reduce the middle and hip area.

NYDJ – Not Your Daughter’s Jeans – Macys, Bloomingdales, Nordstroms

Comfortable, very flattering and based on all the women I have put into NYDJ jeans and pants, you won’t want to take them off.

SEJOUR – Nordstroms in stores and online. 14 W to 24W

Stylish clothes that you can actually move in.

Slimming tip: Add interesting necklaces and earrings to bring the eyes up and away from all the body parts you think need minimizing. Plus, it’s fun to take a simple outfit, let’s say your all black standby ensemble, and transform it from boring to brilliant when you add color and whimsy with your jewelry.

You can find great looking and not expensive costume jewelry in TJMax and Marshalls.
