Try it on!

Welcome everyone to Scarborough Fair’s first blog post on our new website.  We are so honored and excited to have a way to connect more directly with all of you. We look forward to sharing our thoughts and insights into the fashion world, while highlighting new trends and approaching harder subjects like accepting ourselves and actually finding clothes we LOVE to fit our beautiful bodies!  

This post is one of many to follow regarding the search for beautiful, well-made plus size clothing that suits your personal style and taste. It’s well known, that just because a designer decides to size up doesn’t mean the proportions are adjusted properly or that the fit is flattering. With the average American woman wearing a size between 16 and 18, according to research from Washington State University, it’s a mystery why there aren’t more stylish, modern and trendy clothes for the plus size woman. The frustration that Kelsey Miller so eloquently describes in the latest issue of Glamour Magazine is something a lot of women feel, when, after combing through the racks in the store, they finally find clothing they love and cannot try it on because it’s not carried in their size. Though Miller’s article was focused mainly on shopping for bridal gowns, we know that the issues extend beyond special occasion wear. So we are proud to say that, here at Scarborough Fair, it’s time to try it on!

Scarborough Fair offers fashionable clothing in sizes starting from XS to 3XX. The clothing has been carefully selected by owner, Kat Menaged. Kat masterfully dresses women of all sizes with a unique selection of pieces, taking the time to match individual style with comfort. When a woman walks into the shop, Kat rolls out the red carpet and works hard to find just the right piece for each body type. This is noteworthy for a few reasons, one being that this is not your typical department store shopping experience, especially if you’re shopping for plus size clothing.  Scarborough Fair is committed both  to bringing a new way of dressing to the market, and to  supporting designers that focus on quality designed collections that fit all women such as:  Alembika, J. Ribkoff*, Comfy, and Chalet. Styles range from classic cuts to romantic curve-highlighting show stoppers. Come in and see us for an enchanted retail experience that serves everyone, in every size, with grace and style.

We would like to meet you when you are able to visit the shop and we would like to hear from you.

*The J. Ribkoff line, include the gorgeous floral pants Kat is modeling, are available in store only. If you are in love, but not in town, give us a call or shoot us and email at info@scarboroughfairshops.com.
