Blanque is one of the most popular lines of fine clothing we carry. I always say that if you wear Blanque once, you’ll wear it for life – and I’m speaking from personal experience! What makes Blanque so wonderful is that it makes the larger woman look modern, sophisticated and well-dressed – whether for simple daytime activities or an evening out. It is a three-season line that is comfortable, packable and so easy to care for.
