If you have ever been frustrated at the mall, when the dress you want does not come in the size you need, if the size you use does not fit properly, or if the clothing simply does not look right because of your motherly curves, then let me introduce Alight –  an online store with lots of cool and affordable plus size clothing.

Alight carries sizes from 12 to 34, and the best part is that they have tons of different styles, clothing for all occasions, clothing that will make any mom look great, and there are even great plus size clothing for teens.

When I tried on my beautiful green and blue sheer layered top from Alight, my middle son exclaimed: “Mom you look just like a princess!”, my oldest son wanted me to wear it to the grocery store, and my husband worried about our bank account. It is such a beautiful, high quality top that I am going to save it for a special occasion….such as my upcoming 30th birthday this weekend. 

The elegant top is perfect for a night out, for an evening celebration at one of the beach restaurants, or for a party. The sophisticated twisted straps and the beautiful lightweight sheer layered fabric is great for the hot and humid South Florida evenings, and the colors are my favorite – this top from is the perfect top for me.

Alight really has something for every style, and the huge selection of plus size clothing that Alight carries offers endless possibilities.

I love dresses, but I had a very difficult time finding a favorite at, so I am going to share a few of my favorites with all of you.

There is something for almost every price range at Alight as well, and the above dresses all cost betwen $14.99 and $49.

Alight’s website has a great setup, and it takes away some of the frustrating guess work that you easily encounter at online clothing stores. You can browse by category, brand, boutique or size. If you have ever browsed an online store, found the perfect item just to discover that they don’t carry your size in that style, well then you will definitely appreciate the browsing by size tab. After you click on your size, it will give you subcategories, and you can then choose dresses, pants etc.

There is much more than dresses at Alight…
