I am so accustomed to slogging through the relatively paltry ready-made clothing options available to plus size women that I had never experienced what it was like to have clothing that truly fit me well--until, that is, I discovered Jane Bonbon's work. Jane is a designer in Vancouver, BC who designs and constructs clothing exceptionally well for curvy ladies. She ROCKED the fit, sight unseen for this very curvaceous, size 24-30 fatshionista. I have NEVER, I repeat NEVER had clothes that fit me so perfectly in my entire life. I am thrilled beyond belief, and doubt that I'm going to be able to go back to ready-made clothing after my experience.
Jane Bonbon's clothes are a stunning combination of a 1940s-50s vintage sensibility and hand-made, indie-rock style. Her clothing features clean lines and amazingly handcrafted details in gorgeous fabrics--all at a price point that isn't much higher than what Americans, at least, are used to paying for ill-fitting polyester grimness at Lane Bryant.
I am beyond pleased with the clothing I've bought from Jane. She has made a committed customer who is a serious clothes horse--all due to her fitting prowess, attention to detail, amazing design and taste, and exceptional customer service.
