Plus-size fashion tips to live by
Having a fuller frame doesn’t mean that you can’t dress with confidence and style. Here are some top plus-size fashion tips for curvy gals to make sure that you always feel fabulous in everything you wear:
Invest in good underwear
Good underwear is essential to making sure the fuller figured woman looks fantastic, particularly a good bra. Lifting your breasts and holding them in the right-sized bra can make you look like you’ve instantly dropped a dress size by revealing your torso, which will make you look much leaner. It is important not to be swayed by the size on the label and instead choose underwear that really fits – it’s a common mistake choosing underwear (particularly knickers) that are a size too small.
Don’t slavishly follow trends
Just because something is on trend doesn’t mean that it will look good on you. When trying on outfits, think about your body shape and ask yourself whether the piece your wearing makes you look and feel good. If the answer is yes then buy it in every colour. If the answer is no then put it back on the rack: choose the pieces you love, not the pieces you think you should love. However, that doesn’t mean you should shy away from trying new trends: athleisure wear is comfortable and looks great on fuller figures, so don’t let its new status as this seasons must-have look put you off from giving it a go.
Many curvy girls choose to wear black because they think it is slimming and it helps them to hide away in the background. However black doesn’t suit every skin tone. It’s time to curb your black addiction and incorporate colour into your wardrobe. Start off with a coloured necklace or shoe, and keep adding more and more colour until you have the confidence to wear a rainbow. Not only will adding a pop of colour to your outfit make you look more stylish and stand out, wearing colour also makes you feel happier.
Break the mould
So many fashion articles tell curvy women that they should wear an A-line dress because it will hide their curves and choose dark jeans because they are most figure flattering. Both of these style tips are generally true, but do we really all want to look like clones of each other because we’re desperate to look as slim as possible? The best thing any plus-size woman can do is be confident in who she is and break the mould. So, if you want to wear that floral jumpsuit or experiment with the lightest shade of acid wash denim then just do it! Your confidence will carry you though, and you’re sure to look fabulous!
