Coco's Corner - a shop dog's view of a beautiful plus size boutique RSS

How Tops are measured for the website - SoCalQueen.com In Womens Plus Size clothing, sizing can be tricky, (actually this is true for all clothing)

Sizes can Run 0X, 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X... or 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, ... Then more and more we are seeing One Size Garments - which DO NOT mean One Size Fits All, just that it's available only in One Size

Then there is the consistency factor - even in the same designer two different styles will run differently

Then the most important factor - How do You want things to fit.....some like clothing to be very close to the body, others like a more relaxed or flowy look.

With all of theses variables, SoCal Queen helps you order the correct size for you by putting the measurements of the garments on the webpage for each item.

This video shows how we take those measurements for tops and for comparison we ask that you measure an item you want it to fit like instead of yourself, we have found this helps with accuracy.

Thank you for watching and if you have any questions, never hesitate to ask. You can reach us directly at our shop in La Jolla, San Diego by calling 858-454-3700

Today I took a video of Mom - Benthe to you - demonstrating the different ways to wear the Shawl Dawls presto chango top!

I think I did a really good jog holding the camera with my little paws - it was hard not to laugh when Mom put it on wrong, but she had a nice save.

What do you think?

Hi this is Coco,

Your favorite shop dog at SoCal Queen - La Jolla Village leader in Plus Size Fashion!

Today we are giving you the information needed to pick out the correct size top for yourself regardless of who makes it - or the style.

Forever ago we realized that even with the same manufacturer, sizes run differently with different styles, so we measure them all and have them posted on each page.

This is how we do it.

Remember too, if you ever need additional measurements, like sleeve width or length, just give us a call here at the shop and we can give those to you quickly.

Kisses from Coco XOXOXOX

Hi this is Coco - Mom (Benthe to you) said I needed to stop being lazy, LOL!, so I shot this video of her. Not bad if I do say so myself, and we did it in one take, well that's all I had the energy for.

Just know that if you're Plus size or any size, everyone loves our jewelry from local San Diego artists! This video shows some of the most creative and versatile pieces that are wonderfully adjustable.

Any questions or comments - leave below.
