FFFWeek Day Five: Just My Size Brunch

July 13, 2013

Friday morning I headed out to attend the Just My Size brunch at the Affinia Hotel. JMS was probably the big name brand that I knew least about, so I was excited to hear more about their brand, and I definitely learned a lot. JMS is often carried in Walmart and Kmart, among other stores (check out a local store near you), and I’ve worn their tights before and knew that they carried upper plus sizes. During the event I learned that they carry sizes 14-40, and that their price points make them so much more accessible than the majority of plus brands. For instance, a lot of brands that do carry above the size 28 have prices upwards of $80 for tops. Looking at Just My Size, their extended size items range from $20 – $32. From what I observed, they specialize in clean cut basics, while also providing some trend inspired pieces, intimates, and swim.

At the beginning of the event, we all had some yummy breakfast and talked about fashion and plus women’s perspectives on fashion. Here, Gaelle was discussing the attitude toward plus fashion in France with JMS team member Crystal.

JMS displayed results from their survy throughout the event space. This one says, “61% of respondents agree: ‘I’m more comfortable with myself today than five years ago.'” Do you agree? I’m certainly part of that percentage.

I noticed a bold colors and prints in a lot of their pieces.

I liked the polka dot swimsuit and this wrap dress the most. Both are super easy to wear. You can also see their semi-sheer hosiery here, which is their new piece for transitioning from summer to fall.

After some more conversation, the JMS team addressed us and discussed how much connecting to plus women meant to the company. They serve a large general public by at Kmart, Walmart, etc, and they really consider what every person needs and what prices we can afford.

I personally see myself buying more of their intimate line because I already have too many basics these days, and in my goody bag from the event were some of their items to try: tights, underwear, and a bra.

I received the Just My Size Pure Comfort Seamless Wirefree Bra, and I LOVE it. I already ordered it in the other colors. It’s not a bra that I would wear out during the day (I prefer underwire), but it gave great support and I loved the band that came down underneath it.

I kept it very casual at the event wearing a Target maternity (yes, you can try these sections out!) dress and a Eloquii jeweled belt.

Thank you, Just My Size, for the invite. I loved learning more about your brand and am so happy that people have access to quality items from your brand.

    Isn’t JMS associated with the Hanes line? I’ve seen it in the outlets together. Hanes is a good old North Carolina company or was. It had a factory in Newland NC but now it is closed. This line looks really nice and bright. You look great in the black.

    I love that wore a maternity dress. I often buy Target’s maternity swimsuits because they’re longer in the belly, but was embarrassed to admit it!

    You get to go to some of the coolest events, seriously! I’ve always liked Just My Size hosiery but didn’t realize they made clothing & accessories, too. I LOVE that straw anchor bag.

    I just wish that the stores around here carried more of the fun & trendy JMS pieces…they mostly only have the t-shirts/tanks/basic shorts. I do, however, own a lot of their tees and tanks. The tees shrink quite a bit when you wash them, so buy a size up. 🙂

I have create a blog of my own tackling stereotypes of plus size people. it also includes my journey to loose weight to get healthy, i am also trying to show that plus size people could be overweight and happy. I would appreciate it if you could visit my site.
