Plus sized fashion has become more popular these days with a lot of variety. However, plus sized women often believe that the larger the clothes are the more it hides. This is just not the case. Here are a few tips for plus sized women who want to play up their features or learn what suits their personal body shapes.
Clothes That Fit
Bigger is not better when it comes to plus sized clothes. Baggy clothes on a larger woman make them seem bigger than their actual size. Tight clothes ride up and bunch, showing every hill and valley, bulge and lump. Find clothes that fit you without being overly tight or overly large. When you find a particular item of clothing that fits you well, buy several pieces of it in different colors.
Lycra is Not Always Your Friend
Unless Lycra is in your undergarments, plus sized women should avoid this material or any stretchy material. It hugs the body and will stress every flaw, ripple or dimple.
The more frills, big patterns or stripes the larger you will look. A simple tailored fit is more in line with a lean look on a larger woman.
Solid Colors Create a Solid Look
Keep your tone the same color top to bottom adding splashes of colors in the accessories. Contrasting colors will interrupt the illusion of leanness in a plus sized woman.
This is the first thing people will notice and remember. Not the clothes you wear.
