Yesterday I was checking my email and I came across a silk zebra print dress by plus size designer Monif C. I consider Monif a luxury designer because most of her dresses are fairly mid to high price. I have never bought a Monif C. dress but, I hear her clothes are of quality and great style. What struck a cord in me about the silk zebra print dress was the fact that it was about $500. I thought to myself, wow, that’s kind of pricey for plus size clothing.

As women in general we fluctuate in weight, but, as plus size women, many of us are trying to trim down for health or personal reasons. So, spending $500 on an article of clothing would seem like a waste of money, right? Or, does it not matter because you want luxury items just the same as non-plus size women?

Today I pose this question:
As a plus size woman would you buy or have you bought an article of clothing for $500 or more, and why?

I would love to hear your thoughts.

    I don’t think it matters. It’s the same as if you were a smaller girl. You would just try to maintain your weight to fit in that dress. However, I think that plus size women should not buy expensive clothes because when referring to size 18 and up, you are more than likely trying to lose weight. So, if you spend $500 on a dress, then you will be sorry once you trim down. The same for if you gained weight. Chances are if you are a size 18 you are going to get bigger and your still out of $500
