Alight: Plus-Size Clothing That You feel Good About Wearing! A Review and Giveaway!

Those of us of more "ample" proportions bemoan the fact that many of the clothes offered on mainstream websites would have looked better on my grandmother then on those of us who are of the non-geriatric age range.

So happy to have found Alight; the clothes are modern and fresh, the cuts and sizing realistic and true to life, and the prices are on par with "non-plus" size clothing.( BTW...can someone please tell me WHY plus-sized clothing is more expensive then its regular sized counterparts?  Often even for the exact same item?  I mean they don't charge more for a size 0 vs. a size 9, why is it then perfectly alright to charge more for a size 16 then it is for a size 4?)  But I digress!

Many of the items are really rather pretty...and many also come in my favorite color "purple",,,,check some cool items:


Love the details on this one...the softness of the drape and the flower for embellishment...



How pretty is this dress?

So now the good part....Alight is generously offering to provide a plus sized top of their choosing to one of you, my dear readers!
