Ladies, plus-size clothing has been revolutionized! Monif C. Plus Sizes, created by Ms. Monif Clarke, has made shopping for the curvy woman, fun again. Her motto, “Be Transformed…I am Monif C. You are Monif C.,” describes the idea behind her line: embrace who you are as a sexy, curvy woman.
Monif’s campaign to teach women how to love themselves for who they are has been successful. Women all over the world from New York to Australia are jumping on the Monif C. bandwagon including Gabourey Sidibe who wore a piece from the Monif C. collection on the cover of this month’s Ebony magazine.
Her West Indian background is very prevalent in her work. Her designs include vibrant colors and sexy silhouettes. The new spring line consists of the stylish convertible dress. From elegant to edgy, the dress’s versatility can take you anywhere. Her site www.monifc.com features the different ways of wearing the dress.
Another great element within her line are her swimsuits. Her runway ready styles are based on the many places she has visited including her greatest inspiration, Barbados. Her many summers spent in her family’s native land inspired the sexy ‘Plunge V Plus Size Swimsuit’ in the beautiful gold and chic black colors; the colors of the Barbadian flag. The hottest suit in the collection is the ‘St. Tropez Fringe Plus Size Suit,’ which is a low v-neck one piece with long fringes in the front. Each suit offers comfort and class for this summer.
