Default Luxurious lace (article)

I'm surprised that the plus-size industry hasn't yet caught on to this exciting new development in the New Femininity -- the popularity of antique-looking lace styles. It's definitely making an impact on mainstream fashion, and is even helping to revive an appreciation for curves.

Look at the text of this recent fashion article:

The writers states:

"Shove that little black dress to the back of the closet, because this year is all about white. This...ivory lace dress embodies what this spring is all about. It captures the femininity that will soon be bigger than it has been in years...It has the feel of the 40's and 50's with the natural waistline, soft lines, and antique lace, tied together with a droopy satin bow."

There used to be a picture with the article, but it's gone now -- but her text gets the point across. And the idea that these lace styles are curve-flattering is definitely on the writer's mind. She notes:

"We are approaching a new era in fashion--one that embraces the woman for what she really is, curves and all. It represents a woman who excels...while retaining her feminine attributes. Women no longer need to wear masculine suiting to hide her figure..."

and she concludes with this great statement:

"This new era glorifies, lace, natural waistlines, round toe pumps, chiffon, taffeta, bows, satin, and large costume jewelry. So get in touch with your femininity and enjoy being a girl."

Applause! I found a couple of lace dresses at Nordstrom in the undersize section, but they would look so much better on plus-size models. On straight-size frames, they just look flat and empty.

I hope we see more lace styles in plus soon. This is an especially pro-curvy trend.
