Laundry is no doubt a part of your weekly routine. And while some ladies are meticulous about only washing certain colors and fabrics together, others just toss everything together into the wash. This might seem a lot easier than separating lights and darks or cottons and synthetics. But taking good care of your casual plus size clothing will keep it looking great and make it last for many lovely seasons.
For starters, always check the tags on your garments before you launder them. Sure, it might seem easier to just toss them into the wash with all your other dirty clothes. But checking the tag can prevent you from shrinking your favorite blouse or jacket down to Barbie doll size. If the tag recommends warm water, don’t just assume that cold water will work fine. Following the instructions will keep your mature plus size clothing for women looking great.
If you are not sure about the best way to care for your garments, you may want to contact the manufacturer or store directly to find out what they recommend. This is easy to do when you are shopping online for casual plus size clothing. Just call the store or send an email before putting your new clothes in the wash. That way you can keep your favorite outfits looking great for many seasons to come.
Stephen, Your Designer
“There is an amazing feeling of artistic accomplishment when all the parts come together into one harmonious aesthetic. It's a connection with who you are and the elements you choose to express yourself visually. This is what making clothing is all about for me. It's like when a songwriter hears his first written notes from a voice or a baker who has practiced a recipe and nails it or a figure skater who exceeds her own expectations. I express my sense of art in clothing. I see things in color, shape and texture. I react to the touch of silk on my skin and my eyes are aware of how color combinations make me feel. My goal is to bring all of these intuitive notions to garments that are sized for larger women. If I can accomplish this then I have reached my goal.” – Stephen
