10 Plus Size Spring Must-Haves that You Would Never Know Were from Retailer Venus

Venus has changed from their swimwear origins. We share a few plus size Spring items that you would never know were from retailer Venus.

Catalog and online retailer Venus has been around for a while. They’re known for their body-hugging silhouettes, bathing suits and accessories that evoke images of hot Miami days and nights. Somehow I ended up on their mailing list and, honestly, that catalog used to go from mailbox to trash can without even coming in the house. I couldn’t wear a thing in it so why bother, right?

Well, a few years ago Venus expanded their sizes through a 3X (26-28) so they got a reprieve from the trash can. I still wasn’t really open to Venus because I thought of them as focused on the bodycon style. I’m not really a bodycon girl, can’t really wrap my mind around around celebrating my belly, but more power to those of you who do. It’s interesting to compare notes with others around the office because they never saw Venus as really bodycon-focused, just rather mature, if you know what I’m saying. For the more seasoned ladies.

Here comes another catalog, they’re persistent if nothing else, and I had time and I’m always looking for something to spend money on so I gave it a look. They’ve got some cute stuff in there! Things that younger ladies would wear. One thing I really appreciate is that they didn’t just add a plus collection, they took many of their straight size items and continued the sizing through plus! And they show you the plus sizes on plus models! So today I’m gonna share some of our office faves!

We’re here for the cute options that Venus has for the plus size ladies of Spring! I appreciate that each item that is available in the plus range can be viewed on a “plus” model but it would be nice to see a little more body and ethnic diversity in their marketing.

    Not one plus size woman would wear anything that was posted. Who comes up with this crap?

      I am a plus woman and I would wear several of the chosen items. We all have different taste, that’s why so many different vendors can thrive!
