Plus Size Clothing Tips & Tricks
By Bridget P. Allen
Fashionistas come in all shapes and sizes. Girl, you are hot! Don't let those sickly anorexic models dictate what you can and can not wear! So take your confident self to the nearest boutique and purchase that cute outfit you were eyeballing!
The 15 minutes of fame for the flower printed muumuus and tent dresses are over! It's time to seek out your personal style and tell the world about it!
There are now many options for the voluptuous fashionista. The key to selecting a great outfit is putting together a great outfit sometimes risky but simple. Here are a few tips:
The most important tip is to buy clothes that fit. Don't wear a piece that shows bulges or rolls. This is unflattering.
KISS - Keep it simple sista! Dress in a single color. One color will help to de-emphasize problem areas by elongating your silhouette. If your skin tone looks great with pink, go for it!
Get vertical! Vertical strips create the illusion of a thinner you.
Wear heels. Wearing at least a 1 heel helps to elongate your legs making you look slimmer.
Don't wear low-rise anything! Very few people can pull this off correctly.
Compliment an outfit with a blazer and belt. Blazers and jackets help to make your waist look smaller. Blazers and cardigans should be long and left unbuttoned. Avoid cropped jackets which draw attention to your waist and butt.
To help elongate the neck, wear tops with an open neckline such as v-necks.
Stick with pants that have a slight flare at the bottom. The pencil thin pant leg emphasizes the butt.
One thing that is overlooked is the right bra. The correct fitted bra can actually make you look thinner.
Proportions are also important. An oversize handbag is a great accessory but a small handbag will make your figure appear larger.
So ladies, don't hide those gorgeous curves under dull, baggy clothes! Show off your curvy figure with your new style and flair.
