As a Canadian, I feel like we still lack a lot of plus size options. Most of my favourite stores are based in the UK, with a few in the United States and Australia as well. The few that do exist tend to be overpriced or hard to find if you live in a small town. Point Zero Curvy is helping to fill that gap, they are an existing line that has added a curvy division that can be purchased online and at local indie plus size stores. PZC is a youthful brand that often still works for the workplace, as you will certainly see in the first outfit here. Look at me, ready to work and still be comfy!
This grey stretch fabric pencil skirt with lace detail along the bottom is absolutely gorgeous and exactly as I expected. I am wearing a 0X and I am normally a size 16 on the bottom. The lace portion is only partially lined with the grey material which goes longer than a mini skirt would, the extra lace material brings it to a knee length. I’ve styled it with a plain v-neck tee and a black cardigan. I’ve also got on a necklace from Trinket’s Jewellery and the Prague Hold Ups from Big Tights.
I tried on two pullovers, one in grey, with a lace lined v-neck. It comes in a tunic length which I absolutely love because it offers full bum coverage for those of you that don’t consider leggings pants. Even though it is pretty obvious leggings are in fact pants. I also love that it has 3/4 length sleeves since I am famous for rolling my sleeves up to that length anyway. I’m wearing a 0X and I think it will fit slightly better once it has been washed and dried, as it is just a tiny bit too big, so maybe size down on this item. This sweater is very comfy, I love how it mixes that feeling with a feminine lace detail. In this photo, I’m wearing it with dark denim jeggings and my favourite faux-velvet ballet flats. I’ll be pairing it with leggings for the plane ride I’m taking tomorrow, it’s a perfect travelling outfit as my flight is followed up by a two-hour drive.
The second sweater is taupe with sparse metallic threads that give it a special feel, but not too much shimmer for everyday wear. The shoulders have a sequin detail and the back is open in an upside down Y and lined with a chiffon material. It is a bit sheer as you can see here, so I recommend lining it with a tank top. Again, long enough to wear with leggings. This one has full-length sleeves but it is not so thick you can’t wear it all Spring. I am wearing a size 0X and I’d say this one fits perfectly as it is. The metallic threads and sequins make it ever so slightly itchy but nothing that couldn’t be avoided with a long sleeve top underneath.
While the next sweater is a thicker knit, it has ultra short sleeves so I think it will work into summer for the cooler days and at night once the sun goes down. It’s not so obvious in the photo here but I would recommend planning to line it with a tank top. When the knit stretches it can appear a bit sheer, so many people will prefer it with something underneath. The colour moves from the most saturated teal blue to the lighter shades, in a gradient way. The top third of the shirt is white. I’m wearing it in a size 0X and it is the only one that was actually fitted to my body. If you are concerned about being in-between sizes, I’d recommend sizing up on this one. Although you will have to find this one in store as it is not currently available online.
The final item I want to share with you is this beige crochet poncho that is perfect for summer and could even be used as a bathing suit coverup. It is very sheer and so you will need to wear something underneath it. I’ve paired it here with a black tank top and leggings. The material and pattern sort of reminds me of macrame and crafting as a kid, but obviously at an elevated level. All of these items are high quality and I believe they will hold up to the wash and the test of time.
