Fashion for Plus Sized Women

If you have been under the false assumption that fashion is only for those skinny and tall girls, you are so wrong! There is nothing wrong or embarrassing about being a plus sized woman, you just need to learn how to embrace yourself and look beautiful. I personally believe that every girl out there is beautiful in her own way, whether she’s tall, short, skinny or fat.

Fashion is for everyone, and that included plus sized women. You should learn to love your curves and your body because if you are not comfortable with who you are, you will keep getting bullied by people all your life. You might have seen the movie ‘Pitch Perfect’ where a plus sized girl calls herself Fat Amy just because others don’t do it behind her back. Now that is called embracing yourself!

Anyways, moving on to fashion for plus sized women. You need to remember that there is absolutely no reason for you to hide your body behind or baggy clothes. There are numerous online stores which sell beautifully designed clothes for plus sized women. Simply emphasize on your assets in order to feel good about yourself. Here are some fashion tips to help you out through the way:

Not Too Tight and Not Too Baggy Either! If you have a plus sized body, then wearing tight clothes is only going to exaggerate your weight. Just buy clothes that fit you well and forget that a size tag even exists. When I say not too tight, I don’t mean to go for baggy clothes. Many plus sized women wear oversized clothes to hide their body. When you do this, you are only drawing attention to your body. Your bra is very important to be considered here; it needs to be the perfect fit in order to keep your bust up and get rid of any lumps which distract the eye.

Know Exactly What Works on your Body and Emphasize on your Assets! Always remember that just because something is trending does not mean that it will work for you or your body. It’s not necessary that you have to pull off all the latest trends, just stick to what you feel comfortable in. Plus, if you have a favorite part of your body, like your killer curves or your tones legs; then show them off!

Work with Colors! Colors are amazing to camouflage weight. Colors not only cheer you up, but they also have the power to draw attention to a few areas. If you wear dark colors on heavy parts, then those parts will end up looking smaller. If you want to put emphasis on your waist, then wear a colorful waist belt, blazer or a top.

Accessorize your Outfit! Want to look trendy? Accessorize your outfits with the latest shoes, bags and jewelry. But, always keep in mind to keep the accessories in scale; a plus sized woman should never wear a small purse.

What Else? Longer tops are great for plus sized women, and so are V-necks. A high-waisted dress slimmer your waistline and gives you a chance to highlight your curves better. As for pants, a lower waist is a better choice because it hides your belly.
