    The only good thing in this collection is the jersey top and jacket made in a different type of material. The rest is not for me.

    Even the model looks miserable in these clothes. Flat, fake expressions that say she’s a professional but she doesn’t feel good in what she’s wearing. And who could blame her?

    I’m a size 18-22, depending on the garment. I don’t like things to be skin tight, unless they’re leggings, but I don’t bury myself in volume on top AND bottom. It’s one or the other. And I won’t even comment on that awful silver coat.

    As far as the pants go… well, let’s face it and be fair, plus-size gals: how often do we really walk around with our tops tucked into tailored pants? With our extra rolls, muffin tops, and hanging stomachs? Be honest. I know I often don’t. Now, we can all draw the conclusion from the photos that the fit was terrible in general…and those pleats are giving me fits…but still, they weren’t the worst offense.

    I agree with many comments: this collection is awful, and it’s worsened by stylist fail. Who the heck put those ensembles together? Dolman sleeves with a voluminous midi AND ankle boots? Way to cut the body off at every possible opportunity. Let me guess: someone skinny (and legally blind) styled this photo shoot. Shame on you, BurdaStyle.

    PS: I reserve the right to wear horizontal stripes sometimes. Not every garment can be constructed on the crossgrain; forcing vertical stripes just makes me feel like a pierrot/circus clown.

    Ick. Why did we just throw the rules out the window? No horizontal stripes, no pleats, no “bags”. Those are rules that plus size gals should live by. For me, that skirt represents five awful years of my chunky butt being made fun of in Catholic school.

    I guess the black outfit is nice. I’d rock something like that at work. But then… it’s black. Everyone looks good in head to toe black.

    Being a bit top-heavy and with long slim legs, I like the pinstripe pants, BUT the long sleeve top looks like a pre-maman cover-up. Also, the winter white, leather ankle boots are to die for !!!!

    Oh my, what a shocker of a collection. That shimmering fabric makes the jacket look like a plastic bag. Those oversize dolman sleeves make the, I assume, tall model look short and wide. The jersey tops aren’t too bad but are far from original. Like its been mentioned before, a lazy, unoriginal, almost condescending collection. Which seems to be the theme over the last few years and the reason I did not renew my subscription. Happy with that decision!

    I am relieved that fashion is gradually returning to oversized garments. I see the silver anorak as oversized and frankly, it looks like it would be a lot of fun to wear. I have a similarly styled RTW safari-style jacket which I found slenderizing and have worn quite a bit. This comes from (1) wearing the jacket open; (2) gathers are below the waist; and (3) the jacket is in a lightweight fabric so the gathers don’t add too much bulk. The silver anorak is pretty much styled the same way. Worn with a slender skirt or pants, this is a good look for a pear body type. The wide dramatic sleeves put the emphasis away from the middle to the arms. I also like the 3/4 sleeve dolman pullover. The addition of a pleated skirt to a full top is a styling misfire, however. Again, a slender skirt or pants would place emphasis on the dramatic sleeves. I like dolman sleeves b/c they can be worn with slender arms or not so slender arms.

    Gorgeous model! The batwing top and silver coat aren’t really flattering, and while I like the skirt I’d want it longer. Pants would likely work for my figure. The floaty front long sleeve top is pretty, like the striped top too. The long blue coat is gorgeous, but the comment about the flappy cuffs is likely right, it’s -20 C where I am right now, even if pretty don’t think I’d take the chance.

    Burda, what are you thinking? I don’t even wear this size range and realize that you could just adapt some of your stylish patterns for plus sizes. Baggy and big are just not flattering. Everyone can look great. Please get on the stick and come up with consistently great plus size patterns. Sewing makes these ladies look super if they have great patterns to begin!

    A surefire way to make a woman look fat is put her in something that balloons about and doesn’t have any tailoring or fit to it at all. This collection is an abomination.

    Wow – harsh critics. I really like the striped long-sleeved top (minus the fake leather), and the gray top. Not sure the pants would work for me but I don’t hate them. The coat draws attention to the hem and sleeves and has a nice v-neck.

    Sad collection. Here’s a tip: If you need to cover the trousers’ waistline for the photo shoot, then they’re not flattering and shouldn’t be marketed. Don’t get me started on the tops.

    AWFUL!!!!! Most of us feel curvy NOT fat! and these designs just scream “I’m trying to hide my generous body”. We would love to have designs like those for “regular” sizes. A lot of us don’t have the skill set to grade patterns. As for me, I love interesting designs, with nice fitting details and not a lot of volume…..and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

    By having these hideous designs you are losing a lot of your consumer base…just saying.

    I’m sorry, but this is terrible. The trousers look like pregnancy pants. Why can’t you do more like the adorable, fashionable cowl jersey dress pattern that I just bought and am SO excited to make! Now THAT is a gorgeous pattern for those of us aren’t tiny!

    The grey jersey batwing top shows a slightly off center seam in the technical flat while the garment in the photograph has no such seam. At least edit these properly!

      I’m not sure that’s supposed to be a seam…isn’t it just showing the different sleeve and silhouette options that the pattern provides?

    This whole collection is just so unattractive. The gigantic silver mess of a coat is so awful I can’t imagine who could look good in that. It’s as if someone took all the details that are least flattering on plus sized women and combined them into this collection. Pleated pants are never flattering on someone carrying extra weight around the waist. The navy coat could have been cute with straight sleeves but they inexplicably used flapping slits where the cuffs should be, that won’t keep the wearer warm and will get caught in everything. Yoked waist pants???? I’m so disappointed with Burda for this collection!

    Not a fan of this collection. The silver jacket might be nice if it were several sizes smaller. The skirt hits at the thickest part of the model’s calves, making her legs look short and stumpy. The asymmetrical tops would be much cuter if worn with leggings. And the batwing top is simply an unflattering style on the model, especially when worn tucked in.

    That silver/grey shorter coat thing….I wouldn’t want to be buried in. Burda, I know you can do better than this. Please us a various plus size panel of people to assist. This collection is wholly hideous.’

    I like the elegance of the double breasted coat and maybe even the long-sleeved top. But the rest is just awful. The styling of the jersey top and skirt (the whole package) is just terrible. Not flattering at all.

    Definitely not impressed. What do the designers of this collection have against larger women? Horrible choices for us, I wouldn’t wear any of them.

    Really? Pleated pants with a yoke to make my butt look bigger than it already is? Way to go!

    Oh wow, this is really disappointing from an aesthetics perspective! How you can say that grey sac in ANY way defines the figure is way beyond my imagination! Burda HAS done some amazing plus sized stories, but they are so few and far between. It CAN be done…so what is this? Laziness?

    I don’t know if it’s the case of awful patterns or awful styling. I lean towards the latter, with the exception of the silvery grey sack thing (seriously, is there any person who would wear something like this? )

    Has anyone made a pair of pants with a yoke like the one above? I’m thinking that in theory the yoke would suit a plus-sized, bottom heavy person.
