6 fashion tips for full-figured ladies

As far as flattering necklines go, a V-neck is the one of the best fashion tips for full-figured ladies.

We’ve got six helpful fashion tips for full-figured ladies:

Don’t hide behind your clothes

If you are trying to disguise a full figure under baggy, oversized clothes, you’re going about it all wrong. Outfits that are too big only make you look bigger. Instead, wear a mix of snug and loose clothing pieces, like a snug knee-length skirt and a flowy blouse, to accentuate your assets and draw attention to the areas of your body that you’re proud of. You’ll feel much better than in a too-big blazer and too-long skirt.

Try a V-neck

As far as flattering necklines go, a V-neck is the one for you. This style helps to elongate your figure and bring attention to your beautiful face. Try a V-neck wrap dress for extra slimming power. The wrap is right at the waist and will help show off your curves.

Belts are a must

Chances are your waist is a pretty great part of you. Why not let the world see by adding a belt to any outfit? Whether you use one to slim a boxy dress or even over a cardigan or blazer, you’ll look slim and sleek with your accentuated curves.

Look outside of plus-size

It is easy to stop shopping in stores and clothing styles that are not made exclusively for plus size women. But there are plenty of items not labeled plus size that you can wear. Don’t be afraid to wear a dress or tunic as a shirt, or to peruse the shoe and accessory sections. Most leading retailers have styles made up to size 16, even if they are not a well-known plus size brand. You can always try a garment to see how it fits and send it back if it’s not what you had hoped.

Make it knee-length

When choosing a dress or skirt look for one that ends right above or right below the knee. These areas are where your legs start to get slimmer and are a great place to end a hemline. Your legs will look long and trim if you stick to this flattering length.

Go big or go home

When it comes to accessories, you can rock some big, bold pieces. Try a chunky statement necklace or some bright bangles. You can pull of wide hoops and long chandeliers like none other, lucky you! Play around to see what suits your personal style.

  1. I love your clothes but why are shipping chargest so high??

    1. Thank you for your comment and for checking out our fashions. Shipping charges are an annoyance, but we charge them to cover the postage delivery charge, handling and packaging the product, processing the order, and some overhead costs related to all this. The cost to us generally goes up as the price of the product increases which is why you see many companies use a shipping charge table as we do. We do hope to be able to serve you in the future. Hope you will consider placing an order with us! We do sometimes run specials on Facebook or through emails so sign up to possibly get a discount sometime!

  2. How do curvy bloggers go about reaching your press or social media team for collaborations?

    1. Email us at socialmm@monroeandmain.com. Thanks for your interest Tracy. 🙂

  3. I will not buy from your company because of the outrageous shipping/handleing or whatever you want to call them charges. I was going to place an order for well over 5 hundred dollars but when told the charges to ship and that you don’t provide a prepaid return lable. I went someplace else. Good luck, if you get your charges inline let me know.

  4. I love your clothes sometimes a little to much lol – but my problem is I relly wish you would use more plus size models – I love some of the clothing but seeing it on a regular size 8 woman does nothing for me – I want to know what it looks like on a size 16 or 3x woman

    1. Thanks for the comment Deb. Great point. We are always looking into adding plus-size models. We talk about this more on this other blog post toward the end if you wanted to check it out: https://www.monroeandmainblog.com/real-women/this-fit-is-for-you/. Thanks again for the comment and loving our clothes (even if it’s a little too much!) 🙂

  5. I liked the information you posted, but how about putting plus-size women in these dresses in your catalog? Let us see what they would look like on our size. Everything looks good on size 2.

    1. Hi Toni,
      Thanks for the comment and for liking the info we shared. We have utilized plus-size models in the past and are exploring it again. Just letting you know that even though we show our clothing on a “traditional” model, we take great pride in offering our styles in sizes up to 3X or 24. We utilize live plus-size fit models and adjust the fit of all our garments for plus-size. You can read more about this here: https://www.monroeandmainblog.com/real-women/this-fit-is-for-you/ Thanks again for the comment. Hope you are having a great day!

  6. We know you offer your sizes up to a 3x or as24 but sz 2 model does nothing for the plus-sized ladies,we are all beautiful women
