...Unlike many people, I don't like to set resolutions, because I have NEVER been able to keep them.
... Instead, I set an INTENTION for the year ahead. Setting intentions are like creating road maps towards the destinations where you want to go. Intentions help me dream big and stay focused at the same time. A few years ago, I set the intention to love myself more every day...

Almost all of my stories, in one way or another, originated as dreams. My dreams are very detailed and vivid, there’s little difference between them and the waking world, except for some of the fantastical elements...
I feel most comfortable when who I am on the inside is reflected — in some way — on the outside, and who I am on the inside is full of ideas, and characters and entire worlds and galaxies that span centuries into the past and eons into the future...
There are two kinds of people in this world. One who, as the middle of February nears, dons their sweetheart-print pajamas and nestles all snug in their beds, with visions of heart-eyed anime characters dancing adorably in their heads...
We at Dare Fashion wanted to seize this opportunity to make a statement on what we DO stand for. And that is providing women with clothing that is made in the USA, which allows them to feel beautiful, accepted, and powerful. Did you know that, unlike most mainstream designers, all of our clothing is designed on a 2x model, and then scaled up and down to fit sizes S-5x? Because no matter what your size or shape, we think you are BEAUTIFUL and you deserve the best.

How could I hypocritically disclude myself - and by proxy, my fellow curvy women - from my fight? That's when it really sunk in: the act of self love is the ultimate form of rebellion. And that self love directly involves our bodies.
..."I own several of your quality pieces and hope to add to that collection in the future. I have always been a larger figured person and have long felt depressed about the lack of choices in women's fashion for plus size ladies. You are so right - there is a real feeling that if you are plus sized, you had best be content in shapeless dresses or sweatpants and over-sized t-shirts. Finally, there is a clothing outfitter that understands what I want as a full-figured woman!..."

Among the images for each product listing is a style-specific size chart. For our tops and dresses, you can get your Dare size with ONLY ONE measurement of your bust!
Please use the size charts as a guideline. Our fashion is made to these specifications, but due to variations in the stretchiness of the fabric and how it is sewn, there may be some slight deviations from this chart. But please rest assured, all of our styles are designed to fit a range of body types, with features such as stretch fabrics, corset lace-ups, and spaghetti ties in the back to customize the fit.
And did we mention... if it doesn’t fit, you can return it, no questions asked! So buy with confidence. And if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us - we're here to help!
