The Astarte Difference
Welcome to Astárte, original designs for the goddess woman sizes 14 and up!
Our clothing is engineered specifically to create the most flattering shape and fit for the variety of plush figures we serve. It's important that you select your size, shape, and height choices carefully. Please check our size chart for a more complete explanation of Astárte sizing and shape determination, which is based on the waist to hip ratio. Just ask if you would like suggestions on the best designs for your body style.
Astárte designs are rare: they are not available on any other website and only select boutiques in Southern California (watch for our fashion shows and trunk shows around California) and they are created in limited editions. The unique way we engineer the fit, the limited nature of many pieces, and the fact that we work hard to create a piece that not just fits your measurements, but creates shape and elegant movement, are all testaments to the value of your Astárte investment. At Astárte, we celebrate curves because we honor the feminine.
Astárte signature pieces, such as our shells, pants, and sleeveless dresses, are intended to be wardrobe staples, "lifewear" that you will reach for again and again, and because of their classic styling and exceptional fit, you'll find the investment well worth it. Our seasonal prints, and even our unique swimsuits, will just give you more flexibility in creating new wardrobe options. Many of our designs offer a different neckline front and back, such as our Tiffany dress, the quintessential "little black dress" and some of our jackets and dusters can be worn over other pieces or closed and worn as a tunic. We are all about options!
Astarte designs are intended to create feminine shape and elegant movement. The difference is clear in the video above.
A lot of thought goes into each piece because we are plus-size women like you, and since 1991, we've listened to our customers of every size and shape to give them the type of clothes they just want to live in. They tell us how many more compliments they receive wearing Astárte designs than anything else they own. They feel beautiful in Astarte designs, and that is our goal for every one of our customers...including you.
