Most people in this country have a love affair with Bettie Page. The sad part is that if Bettie Page lived today she would be considered obese and have a hard time finding clothes. One solution has been the websites and stores opening up inspired by her and what she represented. Retro fashions are in and the plus size fashion community is really embracing this fashion concept.
Tatyana Designs, Inc. (the “Company”) (OTC Pink:ASCO), a growing retailer specializing in contemporary designs inspired by the iconic Bettie Page, today announced it has signed a ten year lease and will open its tenth Bettie Page boutique at 32 Newbury Street in Boston. Known as “The couture” block of Newbury St., Bettie Page‘s immediate neighbors include Chanel, Burberry, Cartier, Brooks Brothers, Valentino, Loro Piana and Giorgio Armani as well as Ann Taylor, Juicy Couture and DKNY. Located on the ”first block” of Newbury St., the new Bettie Page boutique is just steps to the Boston Public Garden.
“Our newest Bettie Page boutique is situated in the heart of the shopping jewel of Boston,” notes Tatyana Designs Co-CEO Jan Glaser. “Wecontinue to be gratified by the enthusiastic acceptance of Tatyana’s designs by women from all walks of life.”
When I looked at the website I was first impressed by the selection of dresses, separates, purses, and even a few fashions for the kids. Basically the 50′s look is something that I can really get with because it reminds me not only of the simpler times but simpler fashions. The Bettie Page fashion website carries sizes up to 4XL. The only disappoint part was the 4X is based on a size 16-18 and on the lower end so if your hips measure beyond 49″ you are unfortunately out of luck on this website.
One thing to note. Tatyanna Designs is not a plus size fashion company so I guess that is the reason the sizing doesn’t go higher. Think of the Bettie Page Clothing website and stores as another option to your plus size fashion arsenal. After all its all about the clothes and if Bettie Page can inspire another generation of fashionista’s to another level of fashion, we can count that as mission accomplished.
