From Radiance Winter 1999
Love Your Peaches Clothing Co. is a mail-order catalog
that was started two years ago by designer Janelle Bonlie. Peaches specializes in unusual,
hard-to-find fabrics and styles for the plus-size woman who likes to stand out in a crowd.
The success of the two-piece swimsuit line convinced Janelle that there are plenty of
women out there who arent afraid to be themselves, and love to wear body-conscious
items, both at the beach and for an evening out. Janelle designs and manufactures every
item found in the catalog. The selection ranges from two-piece swimsuits, catsuits and
leggings, flowing tops and jackets, to body-conscious evening wear, all in sizes to 6x.
Janelle believes in equal clothing opportunity for all.
"If I cant make a garment in a 6X, I wont make it at all. Im so
tired of fashionable clothing for plus sizes stopping at size 3X." For a free 32-page
color catalog, write to 50 Webster Ave., 4th Floor, New Rochelle, NY 10801. Phone
