On this Monday, I am hyped to share with you the newest collection that has my attention and I am geeked to see this brand to success! I already know there are a few silhouettes I am intrigued to try on! ADD to that, this site is clean, nice, and easy on the eyes, I am here for this… YES.
*Editors NOTE: This line is for those inbetween, for that gray area of sizing, from a 10-18. Hopefully she builds out this collection with demand. These pieces are nice!*
What is Pile NY?
“Simply put, it is a very subjective collection of garments that I wanted to find hanging in my own closet: Feminine clothing- minus the frilly, bold and sexy- without being tasteless, and most importantly, a great deal of importance given to proportion… we understand first hand that the fit of a garment relies on more than just the size on the label. If the proportions are wrong, wearing the correct size has very little significance.”
Let me share, let me share, rather than talk your ear off! You ready? Here you go:

Plus Size (In Betweenie) Designer to Watch: Pile NY
About the Pile NY Fall 2013 Collection:
“The Fall 2013 PILE NY Collection was fit on a pear shaped figure. Women with this body type will be most comfortable in the pieces (although my Hourglasses and Apples are more than welcome to make the pieces their own). Next year I hope to expand the line to include silhouettes specifically designed for hourglass and apple shapes as well”
From the designer:
“At the end of the day, I’m just a plus sized woman, living in Harlem, fed up with what fashion has to offer this body of mine. But I have finally learned not to blame my body for the limits that fashion creates. I have decided to push the limits. I hope that you will do the same.”

Right?!?! Love it!
Catering to one body type is disappointing, but I get why that happens–women’s shapes vary no matter their size, but it is all the more true in plus size fashion. That said, though, I think the way *you’ve* described this brand suggests that there’s one “right” way to dress for your “body type,” and that’s simply not true. (I mean, come on, fuck flattering! That’s really no better than skinny people telling me what I can and cannot wear!) I also wish you had mentioned in this post that the collection is only for sizes 10-16. I was excited to go look at the options, because the prints are so cool, and I was prepared to spend $$ even though I got a really bad vibe from this post about my shape. But my hopes were quickly dashed when I realized that this was only for a “tiny” segment of the market. 🙁
I think that you have misunderstood my description of this brand and my post?! In no way do I ever promote one type over another NOR do I share or say what is or not is flattering… In regards to this collection, I did say it was not for the shy… with the bold prints and mixing of patterns… as readers have commented on the past. NOW
The designer has paid attention the pear shaped woman, addressing certain parts of the plus size shape… the designer has chosen to do something different, and adding more and more options is not an offense… I believe.
I am terribly sorry if you got a bad vibe about this post and your shape! That was not the intent at all! 🙁 @elf4793:disqus
I love it…something that make me come out my shell!!!… I really love it…
Yeah! I am happy you love!
look I like it so much I feel like I could be modeling for plus size fashion…lol
Absolutely love the spicy orange pants the model is wearing on the runway! Actually I love all the pants in this collection. Very trendy! Love it! It’s just so nice to finally see more fashion sense on plus size clothing. Always so hard to find.
Right!!! Seeing new silhouettes and options is fab!
Where can I get those burgundy shoes the model is wearing?!
I am sorry, I havent the clue!
I love the collection…but for an average working person who is NOT afraid of the bold print…the prices…just my opinion…could be a little better. If I save maybe I could splurge on one item…but I dont want to detract from what she is doing…great clothing line!
It is nice! Gotta love our indie designers!
