Plus Size Coats from Just As You Are (Giveaway!)

December 1 2011 | CeCe Olisa

I’m a California girl, so New York City winters are definitely not my favorite thing. This year I have at least one reason to look forward to the frosty weather that is sure to come, my new coat from Just As You Are.

I first heard about Just As You Are from Plus Model Magazine, but because of their special sizing process I had to check them out for myself.

I logged onto www.asuare.com, to see how they make coats based on SHAPE not Size. The first thing I noticed is that they use actual plus size princesses on their site, very cool! According to their site they “take a personalized set of measurements that you and only you provide and input them to our unique Just As You Are โ€œfit matching systemโ€. This system uniquely pairs key body measurements directly with each coat or jacket measurement โ€“ to give you the ideal fit youโ€™ve always deserved.

I pulled out my measuring tape and got to work, based on my measurements they suggested a few coats including the three below:

Plus Size Coats from Just As You Are!

 

It was hard to choose, but I decided to go with the Antarctica coat (when it snows I’m going to be soooo cozy!). My coat arrived in less than a week and the fit was perfection!
Now to the important part, Just As You Are is letting me do a giveaway. Are you ready?
I have not one, not two… but THREE coats that I can give away! These coats are valued at up to $260, so this is a very exciting for me… There are two ways to win:
1.) Leave a comment on this post
2.) Tweet the following phrase “Want to win a LUXE #plussize Coat($260 Value!)? 1.) Follow @thebiggirlblog 2.) Follow @as_U_are 3.) RT this message & you’re entered!”
BONUS: If you want to triple your chances of winning “Like” TBGB & Just As You Are on facebook and tag us both in a post so we know you “like” us.
That’s it… good luck!!!

    I am soooo needing a new coat this winter, and this would be an amazing happening for me since the budget won’t have it. I’ll be wearing my hoodie quilted flannel coat again, and not being quite warm enough to do anything outside for any long amount of time. ๐Ÿ™

    Which is why I took advantage of *both* this and the facebook ways of entering this giveaway, grin. I’m tempted to create a Twitter just to enter a third time! Good luck everyone!

    Coats are so not Miami weather so when I travel North & it’s cold, I’m NEVER prepared. What’s warm & snuggly down here ends up feeling like I’m wearing a tank top LOL…I would LOVE a no fail coat ;0)

    I Love the opportunity to win one of this coats for my daughter, she is 16 and plus size. It breaks my heart when she feels nothing fit good. A coat like this will put a smile on her face! Thanks!

    I’m a California girl too, living in New York, and I have yet to find that “perfect” winter coat for me. (Never really needed one, lol). These coats look just right, so here’s hoping! Thanks!

    Thanks for this amazing giveaway! I hope I win because its cold in DC! And I entered in all of the three ways! Thanks again!

    I’m in central CA, where the winters are as harsh as the summers. A new coat in this economy would be a luxury. Sitting at the bus stop wrapped up in a sweater and gloves doesn’t do much to keep one warm, that’s for sure. Good luck to everyone who enters, as I’m sure we could all use something to keep us warm when the elements are against us!

    Oh God lol, these are fabulous. I can never find any like that where I live (not in plus-size anyway!), and it’s definately ironic because I live in Quebec, which means we go from 40 C in the summer to -40 in the winter sometimes.

    I love hearing about new plus size clothes sites. And this one sounds awesome! I have such a hard time finding clothes that fit since not everyone is shaped like everyone else. Thank you for sharing! It’s also a positive that they gave you the opportunity to make some folks’ day.

    I would love to win one of the coats from Just as You Are! I recently got a free measuring tape from them, so I can take my measurements. Their coats look fabulous, but unfortunately, they are out of my price range.

    That is an excellent way to determine what type of coat a girl needs. I love shops that go above and beyond to make sure their clothes fit perfectly!

    I love that more companies are becoming more attuned to the fact that not all PSPs are shaped the same. It’s even more awesome to see women who look like me modeling the clothes. Progress! I’d love to own one of these coats to beat the tough Midwestern-winter blahs!

    I’ve never really owned a coat even though I’ve lived in New York my whole life..these are beyond gorgeous and I must have one! Personally I favor the Aurora.. it’s just so dramatic with a lovely shape. I also just want to say thank you for doing what you do. You’ve been a big help in me beginning to change the way I see and feel about myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

    WOULD LOVE ONE OF THESE COATS. It’s so hard finding a good coat given my special proportions and sizing. Crossing my fingers!!!

  36. Piper

    I want to win! I could use an extra winter coat. I’m a size 24, but since the coats are based on shapes and not sizes, are they geared toward plus-size women on the smaller side or can us big girls wear them too?

    These coats look fantastic! I really love the Albany coat; it looks so darned stylish, and I haven’t seen one like that before. I love their process of fitting your measurements to the coat – not the other way around!
