Got a shipment yesterday from Kiyonna, which is one of my favorite places to shop. I first started shopping with them when I couldn’t find well-made business casual clothes in a size 32. They go up to a 5x in everything, their quality is great and the fabrics feel great.
This is a terrible picture and my hair is uncharictaristically messy, but I love the Sweet Ruffle Bellini I just got. You can wear it open, or tie it (I have it tied in this picture), and it is super soft. Underneath I’m wearing their essential stretch camisole in white. I also own it in black and nude, and wear them under nearly everything I own. Only complaint is they run a little short in the torso so I order a size up, but I’m tall and have a super long torso anyway, so I’m used to this.
If you ever need a dress, you can’t go wrong with Kiyonna dresses. I have several and they never fail to produce compliments. Other items in my daily rotation that are Kiyonna include the Bellini Ballet Wrap, Kenzie Cowl Neck Sweater (I have it in plum and rust), Tory Cinch Dress and the Sidney Ruched Top.
This should serve as a case study in why plus size designers should serve the extended plus market and also focus on classic style, fabrics and fit. I’m tired of cheap-polyester-ill-fitting-crap. Also worthy of praise for going beyond normal plus is Igigi. I don’t own as much Igigi as I do Kiyonna, but that’s just because I found them later than I did Kiyonna. Keep up the great work designers!
