Best Shops for Plus Size Women Clothing in Nairobi : Series 1

A while ago, i had such a struggle finding stores that sold plus size attire without compromising on my style. Most of the stalls which claimed to sell plus size clothes had these very boring stuff which was so upsetting. Just because somebody is a plus size doesn’t mean they want to go through all their life in deras or oversized clothes. Please don’t get it twisted I have nothing against deras. Infact i have a couple but you just can’t live in them forever.

I’m glad nowadays there are a couple of stores which have pretty awesome stuff for this niche. I have compiled a list of the stores that are worth visiting for great plus size apparel here in Nairobi. For starters today i’m sharing with you THREE stores in no particular order whatsoever. These are stores which i have either bought from or seen their collection and can vouch for without any hesitation.

  1. Lyl Fashion

Great for : Trendy pieces

They pride themselves in selling American dresses. They stock high quality dresses, coats denim and kimonos amongst others. If you are looking for plus size apparel which is unique and can’t be easily found elsewhere, this is the place to explore. Sizes range from 12 to 26 depending on the attire. So far i know Lyl fashion has two stores. Their town branch is at Re-insurance Plaza, Mezzanine floor inside boutique Africa. The other branch is situated in Yaya area, Wood Avenue at Woodlands Mall 2nd floor. Their trendy casual dresses will blow you away. Check them out here.

Why you need a chic sweater dress!

If you are looking for a great trans-seasonal piece which will see you through from cold to warm weather consider incorporating a sweater dress into your wardrobe. I am so excited that i finally started this Fashion and Style Blog. It gives me a great platform to express myself. I feel so awakened when i indulge in such conversations.

As the weather changes over from cold to warm, sweater dresses are quite something! Most of the weekends when I’m up and down running my errands i always rock canvas shoes. I find that pairing a sweater dress with these kind of shoes gives me an ultra comfy yet extremely chic look.This look makes me feel neither overdressed nor under-dressed. What a perfect transitioning attire. I distinctively adore my canvas in white! Very specific…huh! I know right! I find them very practical with most of the outfits in my wardrobe.

Whoever said that money can’t buy happiness, simply didn’t know where to go shopping! I am always delighted when i get value for my money. If you are in Nairobi, Kenya and you’d like to get high quality sweater dresses at great prices, Toi Market at Adams Arcade is the place to go for shopping! You will be spoilt for choice as they have a variety of sweater dresses and much more. As for the white canvas shoes, check Bata Kenya. They have lots of varieties.
