I’m a bigger girl (even bigger now that I am 19 weeks pregnant) and I have been since having my first baby almost 13 years ago. Finding clothes that fit, aren’t overly expensive and don’t make me feel worse about myself than I already do is difficult. Finally a company that makes real clothes for real people.
Enter the new women’s line from Giant Tiger and I finally feel like a company listened to not only what plus size women want but what women want in their clothing period. Far more generous sizing for both regular and plus and the fact that I can get the exact same tops and dresses in plus as you can find in the regular sizing. It’s not only impressive but unheard of for any other brand I have ever come across.
Not only do the clothes look great, they fit great too. When I was at the launch just before I went to New York, I was completely sold on the entire line. It is gorgeous, trendy and above all, affordable.

So I asked Giant Tiger if they wanted to partner with me for the BConnected Conference I attended 2 weeks ago because I really wanted to showcase the new line and show it off to as many people as I could. They were incredibly awesome and off I went to my nearest store. For the first time in many years, I finally felt comfortable trying on clothes and they really helped me feel good in my own skin again. I didn’t feel frustrated like I usually do when the clothes don’t fit right or the price tag is just too high. I was able to try on several different looks and even if I didn’t really love the style on me, it fit wonderfully even being able to accommodate my growing belly. It was by far the easiest and least stressful shopping trip I have ever been on. There is nothing I hate more than trying on something I really love only to have it make me feel bad about my self.
More than anything else, I finally feel like a company finally gets me. They realize that just because we are plus size doesn’t mean we don’t want to wear beautiful, well-fitting clothing. I felt beautiful in all the new clothes I wore over the conference weekend and it’s been a long time since I have felt comfortable wearing a dress or even colourful tops. I usually leave most stores feeling defeated and upset with myself because I didn’t find a thing to fit me properly. After being able to grab some new clothes that fit made me feel great about myself and happy that a company finally got it.
For $100, I was able to get to beautiful lace tanks, one in coral and the other in turquoise, a peasant top with sleeves in white and also a peasant tank in black and the most gorgeous style maxi dress that will more than accommodate my growing belly over the warm summer months and will definitely be my go-to outfit for the warmer weather. This is by far less than I could have paid for a single top at some of the plus size stores.
Even if I wasn’t working with Giant Tiger, I would have gone to get these things anyway as they are gorgeous, affordable and just plain great. I will be outfitting my daughter for summer in the new line as well. She is only 12 but she is 5’5″ and doesn’t fit in the regular kids sizes and since this line is so trendy, it will even be perfect for her as well. You can check out all the great new styles by visiting the Giant Tiger website.
