...where plus-size women find fashion, lifestyle and love tips.

BBW Dating Dress to Impress!

While it’s true that everyone has their own personal style, the notion that because you’re a certain size or shape, you aren’t able to enjoy fashion trends. This couldn’t be more wrong!

There’s always a way of making a fashion trend your own. Here are a few ideas/tips for how to bring out the “trendy” you that you’ve always dreamed you could be. Especially since you’ve now decided to start dating again. Wearing that perfect outfit for a first date can be scary, but doesn’t have to be. Searching for that special someone via dating sites like, bbw dating can take the worry and anxiety out of meeting people for the first time. The people you will meet on that site are looking for the same thing as you are…someone who can relate to the same life experiences as you.

Psychedelic Prints

The ’70s made their way back and that meant trippy prints and outfits from Woodstock days. A major plus-size fashion rule for as long as I can remember has always been to stay away from bold prints. Add to that psychedelic patterns, too. This breaks so many rules that were imbedded in my psyche. From the short cut of the bottoms to the bell sleeves to the vibrant colors, there’s just no hiding your body in cloth.

And why should you? Colorful prints and stylish cuts aren’t limited to the size 5’s. Your choice of colors and cuts are an expression of who you are and shows your confidence and self-esteem. Wear your colors proudly!

Pastels

It’s commonly known that plus-size women strive to wear black as much as possible. After all, black is regarded as “slimming”. Limiting yourself, however, to one color is just plain boring.

Pastels are bright and airy. A pastel top combined with black slacks (if you’re more comfortable with that), along with the right accessories, like earrings, a necklace, or a bright scarf, will allow your personality to shine.

Pastels aren’t exclusive to spring and summer. They surface every year, everywhere. And they’re just perfect for walks on the boardwalk or strolls down tree-lined city streets…the perfect first bbw dating date!

Cape Dresses and Rompers

There are few clothing items bolder than a cape. It has the kind of volume and depth so that every time you move, it flows and sways in such a manner that people will obviously take notice, for better or for worse.

This design can also be bright-colored, thus again bringing out the adventurous, playfulness in you. It will show off your confidence in making a bold statement…you’ve broken the stereotypical notions and the stares you may be getting are positive, approving ones.

Culottes and Wide-Legged Pants

With the skinny jeans being seen mostly on skinny women, they are not very flattering, or comfortable, on plus-sized women. Wide-legged pants and culottes on large women, however, are very flattering and allow free movement. How can you portray that you’re comfortable with yourself if your clothes aren’t allowing you to be comfortable? Dress comfortably and accessorize boldly. You’ll be surprised at just how much of your personality will shine through.

White-On-White

Plus-size women are usually deterred from wear white-on-white ensembles. In a similar vein to pastels, white is a color that is not traditionally deemed as flattering. As a result, many full-figured women stay away from it in an effort to avoid visible belly outlines, prominent rollage, or all-around “look at me” stares.

But white-on-white is everywhere, especially during simmers. The fact that plus-size women have been told that they need to cover up in dark colors and thick fabrics to avoid being seen, even during the hot, hot months, is just plain torture. Any so-called “rule” that inhibits a person’s right to express themselves with fashion, is not a rule that should be allowed to continue. Wear white-on-white proudly!

Pencil-Type Dresses

Anything “too fitted” might be a risk many plus-size women aren’t willing to take. However, sometimes, a dress that hugs to your curves is just the look in the mirror you want to see that makes you feel sexy and ready to show off to the world.

In a summer pencil dress, you will see the roundness of your curves without any disapproval. Add a wide-brimmed hat, a scarf, jewelry, and that first date that you met through bbw dating will make him sit up and take notice…in a good way!
