For plus size women that are only offered black, safe neutrals and over-sized tunics, Shop Translated ventures once again into exotic prints, unexpected colors and shorter hemlines for the Fall. Designers Jacqueline Floro and Cortney Burk have infused this new Fall 2011 Collection with their signature ultra-feminine vision for the confident, fashion-forward plus size woman. Combining romance and sensuality with versatility, the design duo offers their curvy customers a truly versatile array of separates that are both dramatic and bold.
Offering to women plus sizes 10 and up, the Shop Translated Fall Collection features core pieces that can be mixed and matched for nearly any occasion. Styles include striking printed plus size tops and colorful tailored blouses. Cotton and chiffon dresses and skirts are also featured heavily in the collection in signature romantic, floral prints.

About Shop Translated:
Never shying away from celebrating the female form, Jacqueline Floro’s previous designs have been worn by celebrities such as Blake Lively, Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson, Jessica Biel, Halle Berry and more. After meeting Navy veteran and former plus size model, Cortney Burk, the two decided to join forces and shake up the design and fashion world by introducing plus size online boutique, Shop Translated. The design-duo brings a contemporary aesthetic to the 40 million American plus size women who have previously been invisible to contemporary designers, because they are over size 8.
In testing the response to early designs at trunk shows and consumer shopping events, Floro and Burk could not have been more thrilled with the remarkable responses: “Women would write passionate, heartfelt emails thanking us for finally creating something attractive and exciting for the plus-size women of the world. Smaller-sized women would ask the sales reps if the styles came in their sizes, to which they politely answered, ‘No, I’m sorry it doesn’t come in your size.’ Something plus size women have been forced to hear… forever!”
