How to Look Your Best in Plus Size Clothing

June 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 152

Plus size clothing is no longer shapeless baggy clothes. Today plus size women have a wide variety of styles to choose from. Designers are finally getting the idea that plus size women have money to spend, and are willing to spend it on well fitting, in style clothing. More plus sizes are showing up in high end stores, online, and on the runway. More and more designers of straight size clothing are now tapping into the huge market for plus size clothing. You want to look your best in your clothes, but if you're used to purchasing pieces that are too big and hang off of you, you might need a few pointers to help you look your best in your plus size pieces.

Wear plus size clothing that fits. Many plus size women make the mistake of wearing clothing that is too large thinking it makes them look smaller. In fact wearing clothing which is too large makes you look bigger. Try to find clothing that is not too loose, but not so tight you feel constricted.

Find the style of clothing which fits you the best. Everyone is shaped differently and what looks good on your best friend might not be the best choice for your body type. If you have shapely legs, skirts and dresses will show them off. If on the other hand you have a large bust, choose styles like an empire waist that will accent your assets. Experiment with different cuts and styles of plus size clothing to find what looks best on your body.

Be bold with your colors and accessories. No navy and black don't really may you look thinner. If you're plus size, color is still your friend. There are several plus size clothing choices in bold and exciting colors and patterns. Try hot pink, electric blue, and other bright colors. If you don't want to make the commitment with your clothing, add pops of color with your accessories. A bright scarf, colorful belt, and brightly colored jewelry, shoes, or handbags can add some life to your look.

Have a good foundation. Your undergarments make a world of difference on how your plus size clothing fits and feels. Have a friend measure you and go by size charts online to find the perfect fitting bra, panties, and control foundation garments. If you can find a good foundation store, go there and ask for a fitting. You might have to try on several styles of bras to get the best fit. Plus size women usually have larger busts so you need a bra that will give you support yet be comfortable. There are several choices for control foundation garments. One of the best ones is an all over shaper that does not have a bra attached. This will help long-waisted women get a great fit, and will not mash down your bust.

Use these tips to get the best fitting plus size clothing and look great. Remember the real key to looking and feeling good is a confident attitude. Be bold, be yourself, and be gorgeous.

Created out of love for fashion, an agenda to improve women's self image and the desire to make fashionable and well designed clothes available to plus sized women in Australia. All women have the right to feel beautiful, and I believe that all women have the right to own beautiful clothes that make you feel as fabulous as you should.
