My First Time: Eloquii | Showing Some Midi-Love in Their New Extended Sizes

It’s a feeling you may know too well if you’re above a size 24. You’re browsing online, and you come across a shop that carries plus size clothes. Awesome…until you look at the sizes. It can be quite a bummer to feel too plus sized for most plus size clothing. I know that feeling all to well, walking the line between a size 28 and 30 myself. That’s why I was very excited to see Eloquii bring extended sizes to their collection.

I had been wanting shop at Eloquii forever with their classy clothes that are appropriate for the office or a night out; however, their size range only went up to 24. But their fans and prospective customers spoke up, and the powers that be added sizes 26 and 28 in a few of their styles. So far the selection is pretty small, but I still couldn’t wait to try something out.

I picked the above skirt in plum for my very first purchase. Being 5’9″, most midi skirts aren’t very “midi” on me and usually are shorter than I’d like for them to be. I was psyched that this skirt was truly midi and reached my mid calf. I also anticipated the size 28 being too tight in the waist, but it was a little loose, and I possibly could have sized down and still have had a great fit. The fabric of the skirt is also substantial, and its construction is quite nice. I predict this skirt will be a staple in my wardrobe for several seasons.

Eloquii is in full swing with their #MidiMoment campaign, styled by Margie Ashcroft of the fabulous blog, Margie Plus. You may even recognize some of her pals in the video above who are some of the most stylish fashion bloggers around. While not all of the midis pictured are offered in extended sizes, there are still cute colors and styles to check out such as the Circle Side Button Skirt below.

There was only one downside of my first Eloquii shopping experience. Along with my lovely skirt, I purchased a couple of pieces of jewelry, a stretch bracelet and a gold chain necklace which are not pictured and no longer available. Unfortunately, the bracelet was too tight (my wrist is right at 8″ around), and the necklace twisted upon itself while I wore it and eventually broke. None of this, though, is indicative of the quality of the skirt I bought, and I’m sure all of their apparel is equally well made. I can’t wait to buy another garment, possibly the Sophia dress, and skip the jewelry next time.
