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.
