Fun, Fitness and Fashion, Bring on the Fitness Season

May and the spring season is the start of many people wanting to have fun, start some fitness routines and of course new fashions to help make it that much better.  It’s no surprise then,  that everyone seems to be in a better mood.

May is that month where there is a lot happening and everyone seems to be moving in some direction or other.  We can feel that the air is getting warmer and it just begs us to get outdoors and do something.  So what are the latest fashion trends for curvy women who are looking to get and stay fit?  And what are some of the latest fitness trends to help curvy women feel strong and well balanced?

fun, fitness, fashion trends for women, fabulous

Well,  let’s just say that there are some really great opportunities out there to work your body so that you remain healthy.  Curvy women were sometimes forgotten in the fashion industry, especially when it comes to work-out wear.  Not so any longer!


With the advent of Yoga as a really good way to exercise, there is also a growth in the fitness wear made for all that stretching and moving. Hula Hooping is another trend that is growing by leaps and bounds.  It will take you back to a time when you could move for hours without end. Of course, there is also water activities that are great for everyone, curvy ladies included.


Before you start your new exercise routines, you need some new duds to work out in.

Following some of the latest fashion trends for women, I offer you a great selection from some of the best athletic wear manufacturers, all available through Amazon.

Let’s go!

Colorful and stretchy capris will make you feel like you have a second skin on. Comfortable and really nice to wear, these capris will look good and help you feel comfortable in any exercise program you choose. Walking, yoga or even swimming can all be done wearing these lovely 3/4 Capri style pant.

Pair these Capri pants with a really snazzy athletic top that adds just a little pizzazz where you want it.  Comfortable and stylish this top is great for all your activities and with its little cutouts, it is modern and trendy too.

This one is a favorite of mine.  I love the colors that it comes in and you can’t beat the price.  Why not add one or two to your workout gear.  It is affordable, looks really nice and will make you feel beautiful inside and out.  The latest fashion trend of adding mesh to your look is part of the beauty of these tops.  It is an accent that just makes this a trendy beautiful and comfortable addition to your modern-day workout gear.

Breathability and airiness are important aspects when you are undertaking some new exercise routines. A splash of color doesn’t hurt either. I love tops that make me feel energized and these are no exception. Lightweight and comfortable for almost any activity, these tops will help encourage you to show your colors to the world.  This is one of the latest fashion trends for women who are looking to have fun, get fit and be fashionable too.

My New Great Exercises

My own new routines will include hula-hooping and swim walking.  Why you might ask?  Well, let’s just say that as a child I hula hooped for hours outdoors and enjoyed it a lot! Now that I am a certain age, running does not quite fit my lifestyle, but hula hooping does.  Does this make you want to try?  My friends at can get you started if you want to join me.  Ruby Hooping will help you get started on the right foot so to speak.

Swim walking is another part of my new fitness routine.  You see I am a curvy lady.  Curvy ladies don’t like to bounce around a lot.  But swimming and swim walking will be perfect for me.  My legs are not the strongest anymore, and walking in a pool will take the burden off of my knees while still giving me a great workout.  I may be curvy, but I am not out of shape, just my shape is different than yours. If you want to know more about swim walking you can check out this link. Mayo Clinic Swim Walking

I need to show you one more beautiful trendsetting top before I tell you more!  You need to check this one out!  It comes in solid colors as well as tie dye in several different colors too.  I love this latest fashion trend for its style as well as it’s colors and prints.  Knock me on my bottom, I need some of these for my workouts too!

Yoga is also becoming a part of my life.  Curvy gals need to stretch as much as our slimmer counterparts!  Yoga is the answer again because the movements are slow stretches that engage all your muscle groups without jarring you from one galaxy to the next. To see how to start a yoga exercise routine if you are curvy and have never done this before, this video link is a great start. Beginners Yoga for Curvy Women

You can bet that I will be looking fashionable and ready for fun and fitness in my new routines to keeping fit and healthy. I will be sporting the latest fashion trend for women who are eager to join the ranks of the fit and fabulous.


Most work-out clothes are machine washable, but, I prefer to hand wash mine.  Most of these outfits are made with some amount of spandex in them.  This stretchy fabric will last so much longer if you take the time to give them a good hand wash.  Then hang to dry after your fitness routine is done.

Come on back and tell me how you are doing with your new routines. Spring is rolling into summer.  I’d love to hear from you!

The Best Out of the World Full Figure Swimsuits

Everyone who has a full figure thinks that Swimming and Full Figures do not go together!

I’m here to tell you that you are so wrong.  Full Figure women love swimming and will love having a Swimsuit that is comfortable, looks really nice and is at the same time is stylish.

full figure swimsuits, full figure swim dresses, full figure women's beach wear

Plus Size Fun in the Sun

Activity for everyone is important and Full Figure women need activity too.  Sometimes the reason that women become fuller figured is that there are certain activities that are difficult to do.  Or maybe they have other issues with their health that does not allow them to do other activities.

Swimsuits are colorful, have support for the bustline and coverage too. What more could you ask for? Each of these suits is absolutely beautiful.

Right now we are just getting into the late spring and early summer. Depending on where you live, you might already be in a pool somewhere getting wet and enjoying the water activities.  Or maybe you are heading south for some pre-summer sun.  Be ready for some water activities and jump right in.

What if you have other problems?

Now I’m going to bring up a problem that I have with swimming and my Full Figured self.  Not too many people will admit this, but I am a realist and I want to be able to go swimming without worrying about my “little problems”.

When I get out of the water, I find that I don’t like that my thighs tend to rub together.  This is probably me, being a little too sensitive to the fact that I have a little more weight on my legs than I would like to have.  But guess what?

I’m here to give you an easy rescue plan!

There are many women today that prefer to dress more modestly when they go swimming.  They either opt for a Swim Dress or they will go swimming in athletic wear that was originally intended for yoga or some other form of exercise classes.

Yoga wear can easily double as swimwear.  It is so much more comfortable to get out of the pool and not have your legs rubbing together.  It also looks really nice with some of the tops being very colorful and bright.

If it is your intention to lose weight by swimming, then this is a perfect way to do it,  When you start to see results, you can slip back to the bathing suit or swim dress idea.  Or continue to wear yoga style activewear.

Most of the time, there is no hard and fast rule about what is appropriate swimwear.  So whatever you are comfortable in,  will work quite nicely.

The most important thing is that you are getting out and doing some kind of activity.  It will make you feel better just to move those muscles.

Swimming or walking in a pool is my preferred fitness routine.  It is easy to do and works well on the arms and legs.  The joints are not overworked with pounding on the pavement, yet still get a great workout.

My other idea of a great workout is indeed Yoga.  Stretching and holding a position for a counted period is a great workout as well.  Not strenuous on the joints and if you can’t do the poses today, keep trying.  All of a sudden, your flexibility is much better.   Thank yoga for that.  Many women are too shy to join a yoga class.  They are uncomfortable with their Full Figures.  I tell you, that is a stumbling block you put in your own way.

If you don’t want to join a group of like minded women (of all sizes), then you have the option of doing yoga routines at home as well.  Pop in a DVD that will walk you through the poses and when you are comfortable, do join a group. The group not only is a social time, but they will also encourage you to try a little harder. We sometimes can use that extra encouragement.

The Bottom Line is, it does not matter what size you are, so long as you are healthy and can get around.  If you have issues with mobility due to arthritis or other illnesses, then find something that will work for you.

I like the Full Figure Swimsuits that I have chosen to share with you here, but I also like and use the yoga capris for swimming as well.

My mantra is to move my body.  I don’t want to work it till I fall over, but I do want to make it work better.

Who isn’t happy to see the daylight hours become longer and brighter?  I can honestly say that I am so happy to see the end of March and April coming in like a beautiful new beginning.

Besides the beautiful flowers that are making their presence known, there seems to be a need to show our joy at the change in season with what we put on our bodies too.

Beautiful Dresses

Spring time just calls us to wear something fresh, and dressy.  These Plus Size ladies dresses might just fill your needs.  I love to show a little leg after a winter of long trousers and dark drab clothing.  When the sun is shining, lovely colored dresses are a must have.

Spring fashion is full of flounces and ruffles, and you can have some too.  This dress has a lovely cowl neckline and the sleeves are just beautiful at the 3/4 length.  I love the cut of this dress with its flouncy skirt, it is feminine and beautiful at the same time.

Womens Spring Wardrobe: Transitions for Stylish Spring Clothes

Stylish Spring Clothes and updating your Women’s Spring Wardrobe doesn’t have to be difficult.

Many times women are at a loss when it comes to transitioning their wardrobe from Winter to Spring.  Everyone loves the change in the seasons and we love to show that change in how we dress.  But, and here’s the big BUT, you don’t have to change everything in your wardrobe!  The Basics of your Spring wardrobe will remain much the same as your winter wear.  Here’s the Big Difference!  Colors,  patterns, and florals will bring your winter wardrobe into the spring without breaking the bank.

basic spring wardrobe, women spring wardrobe, essential spring wardrobe

A few well-inserted pieces will get you through from winter to spring like a fashion professional.

So What do I need?

Spring is that season that seems to take forever to arrive.  Once it has arrived it can quickly take a U-turn and make it look like winter again.  So you’re never really sure what Mother Nature will have in store for you from one day to the next.

That to me is the biggest problem with Spring Wardrobe changes.  It’s too early to pull all the warm stuff out of your closet! And yet, it’s the time when we really want to be lightening up our looks.

So What is a fashionable gal supposed to do?

First of all, don’t panic!  Updating your spring wardrobe is as easy as adding a few pieces that follow the fashion trends for this year.

Your lovely basic black, gray and navy colored pants or trousers are still able to be worn.  Just add a spring blouse, sweater or blazer and you have a whole new look.  Below are some wonderful spring updates that will easily transform your basic spring wardrobe.  All the fashion magazines are showing colorful prints, solids with a flair for color and feminine fabrics.  Cold shoulder or cut out shoulders are still the rage, along with baring one shoulder too.   Asymmetric hemlines are still popular too.  The runways were full of ruffles and ornamentation for blouses.  With one or two of these, your spring wardrobe renewal is on the way.  Check out some of the beautiful blouses below.


Plus Size Sweet Crochet Spliced Blouse Plus Size Sweet Crochet Spliced Blouse

This blouse is available in a variety of colors, so you can choose the one you like the best. It’s a Great Value for your wardrobe update.

Plus Size Ornate Printed Blouse Plus Size Ornate Printed Blouse

Plus Size Ornate Printed Blouse

Prints are all the rage, so for your consideration, I have included this blouse with a lovely overall design to make that update to your wardrobe easier and fun too.

L&L Flowing Chiffon Off The Shoulder Top L&L Flowing Chiffon Off The Shoulder Top

Off the shoulder cut, translucent material, trendy print, this plus size Love & Legend top has got it all. Wear it with a pair of jeans for a grungy look or a pencil skirt for a night out. 28-inch length.

Feminine and flowing are two of the spring looks you want to include in your wardrobe update. This one provides that and more, the off the shoulder or “cold shoulder” look is still very strong for spring. Don’t miss out on this truly soft and very feminine look.

Printed Chiffon Asymmetric Plus Size Blouse Printed Chiffon Asymmetric Plus Size Blouse

Printed Chiffon Asymmetric Plus Size Blouse

Asymmetric hemlines never looked better and they are not going away anytime soon. I personally love the look of the uneven hemlines. Very flattering for all figure types you need at least one of these in your spring update.

Michel Studio Three Quarter Sleeve Embroidered Blouse Michel Studio Three Quarter Sleeve Embroidered Blouse

A light and feminine look. This plus size embroidered blouse from the Michel Studio collection has a scoop neckline, a square shape, et embroidery on the hems and at the necklines. It also features flared three quarter sleeves. 28 each length.


Lovely embroidery on a square necked blouse is a nice change. I love 3/4 sleeves because they offer coverage and are not as bulky as a full long sleeve. This is one very versatile blouse.  Ruffles at the sleeve are also a big fashion statement for 2017.  You will feel so fashion forward in this lovely blouse.

Stay tuned for more Spring Wardrobe Updates!

The next installation of spring wardrobe updates will include some really pretty sweaters and blazers to get you through those spring days that are a little cooler than you’d expect.  If you’d like to be the first to know about those items, you can sign up for the newsletter and you will be the first to know all about my favorites and hopefully will see that one piece that just needs to be added to your wardrobe to make it complete.

Everyone is feeling so much lighter now that Winter Coats are being put away!  Hopefully, where ever you live, the weather has been showing signs of warming up!  Today where I live it’s definitely getting warmer.  The rain has removed the last traces of the snows that marked the 2016/2017 winter season.  I can’t say that I’m sad that winter is finally over.  I prefer the other three seasons to the one that just past.

I love Fabletics by Kate Hudson.  Not only are they really pretty and stylish, they are made to fit many different sizes.  You can get fitness fashions right up to 3X!

Whatever your chosen method to keep fit, Fabletics is the fitness clothing club to belong to.  Become a VIP member and you will be let in on all the latest styles, colors and sales. You also get your fist outfit for a really great deal and future outfits on a preferred member price.

What can you expect from Fabletics?

Just look at the banner above and you can see that there are leggings in all styles and some really fancy patterns and colors.  You have your regular leggings in plain colors too if that’s what you are after, but for me, I love the wild patterns and prints.  I also like the fancy way they mix solids and meshes to make your workout clothes look absolutely gorgeous.


These ones below are just a small sample of what’s so neat and funky about Fabletics!  I love the Magenta with Black pairing.  There are many others to choose from as well.  This is just one example.  The length of the pant is the other part I love.  These ones just sit under the knee, but you can have full-length pants or 7/8 length too.  Just wait till you see what you can put on the top….  Fantastic and fun, fashionable and really comfortable clothing for your favorite way to move!

Nothing Boring Here!

Who says that taking that step to activity needs to be boring?  No woman I know of would want to be in plain, uninspired fashion fitness wear!  If you want to be plain at the bottom, no problem.  Then spice it up with a topper that just makes your eyes pop.  When you feel gorgeous working out, you will stay at it longer and even find reasons to go to the gym.  There is no reason at all that you shouldn’t look great with fashion fitness clothes that really look and feel wonderful.

Fabletics offers all kinds of fun clothing and not just Fashion Fitness Wear, but also some really nice outfits for dance and movement type classes.  Or if you just like to go out to dance, there are several beautiful styles that will have you feeling wonderful all night long.

What makes Fabletics clothing so special?

Everything that Fabletics makes is made to be worn comfortably.  Comfort in fit is number one and then number two is versatility.  No one does fashion fitness wear better.

There are Tshirts, Toppers, Leggings in all lengths, shorts, and skirts that will have you looking fantastic from the moment you start your day till the time you finish up.  Fabletics even has dresses that can be worn to work or out to play.  The choice is completely up to you!  All I know is that you will love their sense of fun right along with their sense of fashion for fitness clothes that will do double and triple time.
