Catherine's is a plus sized retail store that carries a wide variety of career, dress and casual clothes for women. You can shop by catalog, or, separated by department and subcategorized by specific style, the website makes shopping for the perfect item of clothing easy. In addition to carrying dresses, tops, bottoms, swimwear, sleepwear and shoes, Catherines also has one of the finest large ranges of plus size brands available today. Danskin dancewear fashions in misses' sizes are part of the site, and the shapewear department has everything a woman could want in foundation garments.
Shapewear is an important consideration in plus sized clothing as in other sizes: the right underclothes make outerwear fit better, eliminating undesirable things like panty lines and the various bulges that appear right where we wish they wouldn't. There's so much more to underclothes than the usual bra and panty! Shapewear covers all areas of the body, from the chest to torso right down to the ankles. Full body coverage in fashion went out with the advent of the flappers, but every full figured woman has at least one garment that would fit perfectly if she had the right undergarment to help with the fit. Someone recently said that most women have two wardrobes; the one we wear and the one we wish we could wear. The right shapewear adds possibility and range to your wardrobe.
Besides items like smooth-fitting control top panties, Catherine's shapewear department also contains body briefers, hip and thigh-smoothing underwear, hosiery and the Spanx® Power Panty. Spanx® is something special in the line of control panties, being as well built as a designer suit and made of fabric that holds without squashing, pinching or binding. The right underwear makes all your apparel look terrific, adding shape and smoothness with extra panty lines. If you're looking for the foundation garments to make that clingy dress fit just right, look at the shapewear department in this fine store.
Catherines' range of clothing is wide, which is especially useful in view of the fact that the size range is also extensive. You can find career wear, play clothes, sportswear and lingerie all at the same store, and then add the perfect shoes for each outfit. Another terrific thing about one-stop online shopping is that you only have to deal with a single shipment, which often results in reduced charges and less time spent waiting for your package to arrive. Look for Catherines coupons online so you have even more money to spend on accessories, fun clothes and shoes.
Let's talk about shoes for a minute. There's something about the shoe industry that seems to have missed the fact that feet come in a variety of widths as well as lengths. Women who want to wear cute shoes are willing to pay for them, but many women can't find shoes in anything but medium (B) width. Most catalog companies that sell shoes don't even bother with wide widths (J. Crew springs to mind, with its adorable suede ballet flats that cost over a hundred bucks and can't be bought for love or money if you have wider feet). The fact is that millions of women have feet wider than the skimpy B width, and we deserve nice shoes too! So, even the rest of your body doesn't fit plus size clothing, look for plus size clothing shops like Catherines, which carries pretty, sexy, stylish shoes for women whose feet are wider than "average".
Catherines is available online which makes shopping easier than ever, and you can order a free catalog to browse when you aren't at the computer. While Catherines carries sizes up to size 16 in Misses, its Extended Size Shop is where this excellent store really shines. In the Extended Size Shop, clothing is available in sizes 28W-34W and 4X and 5X as well. There is something for every plus size shopper at Catherines, where career suits and dresses rub well-made elbows with jeans and casual sweaters.
