How’s your summer going? Now is the perfect time to enjoy the outdoors and make fun travel plans. It will be a shame to see the summer go.
But, in the meantime, enjoy the remaining days of summer as much as possible. And for that, you need to stay cool in plus size clothing. So choose outfits in lightweight summer fabrics.
There Is No Perfect Fabric
Keep in mind that all materials have their pros and cons. No one fabric is perfect for all plus size clothing you’ll wearing during the summer.
Variety in your wardrobe is essential. Go with several of these cooler fabrics to create a beautiful, comfortable summer collection.
Linen is great for hot weather and sunny days. It’s light, breathable, and cool. The major drawback is that it wrinkles very quickly, so that can be a hassle.
Cotton absorbs moisture efficiently and dries almost as fast as linen. One of its major advantages is the ease of care. Most cotton garments can be washed in a regular cycle in your washing machine with no concern.
Jersey is made from cotton, though some jersey contains wool and synthetics also. This is the fabric most T-shirts are made of, though not all jersey is the same thickness and texture as a traditional T-shirt.
It has just the right amount of stretch to make it comfortable. When it comes to dresses and casual plus size tops, jersey is great because it drapes exceptionally well. In fact, it’s one of my favorite fabrics to work with.
Rayon – though not as durable as cotton – is another cool fabric. It stays comfortable during the summer, even in humid conditions. Be sure to follow the washing directions since most rayon should be treated with care.
Revel in your summer style by adding plus size clothing in cool fabrics to your wardrobe. Be sure to check the tags to care for each garment appropriately. You’ll be able to create dozens of gorgeous outfits.
I know how challenging it can be to find casual plus size clothing that is also cool and comfortable. That’s why I carefully choose my fabrics myself. All my handmade designs are crafted with your comfort as the ultimate goal. So you can savor the rest of the summer in style – down to the very last sunny day.

“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
