Nygard Review and Giveaway

I'll admit that I'd never heard of Nygard before, so when the company contacted me I wasn't sure what to expect. But after perusing the petite, regular, and plus-size offerings in the Peter Nygard line and the fun basics available in the Bianca Nygard line, I was excited to see a garment in person. I was sent this Bianca Nygard ladies jacket to review and keep.*

I adore blazers and am constantly on the lookout for new and eye-catching colors. This Bianca Nygard ladies jacket - the Cotton Sateen One-Button model - comes in turquoise, citron, coral, cobalt, and seven other colors in addition to this trendy mint that I chose. The blazer is lined, sturdy, and holds its shape well. It runs a bit large - I had to swap out my usual size 8 for a size 6 - and, strangely, the material appears to be a bit of a cat hair-magnet. But overall, I'm impressed with the quality and design. and am eager to explore more garments from the Nygard family.

Love the lux jersey peplum in citron, but alas they don't have my size- but the blue is quality too, so I'd chose that 'un!

I swear... I'd wear a garbage bag if it was citron. Or peplum. Can't get enough of either of those!

I love the Mitered Stripe Tank Dress by Peter Nygard in either color -- but I can really imagine changing up the black and ivory with various bright pops of color.

I'm such a fan of Nygard Clothing, my closet has many pieces already, however, my choice would be some Capri's for summer, or, a peplum top would be lovely too!

I'm always pleased to find a new source for plus size garments that are well made wardrobe pieces. The dresses are great, but what I really need is a jacket like the one you are wearing, the Bianca Nygard Cotton Sateen One-Button Jacket. I think it would be perfect for the interviews I have coming up. Or possibly Peter Nygård Triacetate Crepe 2-Button Multi Seam Jacket... ilembach [at] yahoo [dot] com.
