Sing It, Erika!

A well-deserved break, and I am back in the saddle!

A comment from reader Erika caught my eye -- she tells it like it is right here:

"We are the new hot commodity - the plus size dollars. Out of 40 comments, I counted less than a handful of positive ones. WE need to stop supporting companies with our hard earned NOT INDUSTRY RESPECTED dollar. Wr also need to tell everyone else we know to not support them. Then we need huge and loud blog posts saying the same. Then we need a local news station to cover theor mishandling of out funds (esp for the people who had to pau customs fees - WHO can afford that in this day and age?!??!) Then and only then will we see positive results.

Sidebar: I think too many plus size bloggers are getting sent stuff for free and are giving rave reviews and telling us to go and support these brands like simple be. That's alarming as well!! Lastly, the quality doesn't even support the headache. In about 98% of the posts here, the quality of clothes was lacking. Come on ladies Simply be may be bad but WE have to do better!!! Shoot invest in a sewing machine and make your own clothes before suffering through this mess!!!"

Opinions? You know how I feel about my sewing machine (LOVE), so I am going to have to back Erika up on this one...

Simply Be here in the UK is a fairly cheap clothes catalogue.It is not a high end or expensive label…so if you think it is you will be disapponted.
They do have some nice dresses but they are aimed at women who are not earning a lot..this is based on me seeing their catalogue
