Plus Size Woman’s Clothing
Wearing the Right Styles for Your Figure
As a plus size woman, you might think that you have limited clothing choices when it comes to expressing yourself. However, this doesn’t have to be the case! Here is a guide on how to find the right style of clothing for your figure.
Be Body Positive
The first step to dressing to flatter your figure is being body positive. Accept and love your body for what it is. When you feel confident in your own skin, you’re more likely to choose clothing that you love, no matter your shape or size. It’s also essential to find clothes that fit properly. It’s tempting to try and squeeze yourself into something a few sizes too small, but this won’t be flattering and it can often lead to health problems.
Know Your Body Type
Knowing what type of body shape you have can help you choose the right pieces. Identifying your body shape will tell you which parts of your figure need to be enhanced, and then you can find cuts and clothing choices to flatter them.
- Pear Shape: Pear shaped figures have wider bottoms than their top half, so draw attention up with a bold statement neckline or a puffy sleeve.
- Apple Shape: If you’re an apple shape, you can enhance and play up your waistline by wearing a flow-y top and a belt or cinching the waist with a belt.
- Hourglass Shape: To show off your curves, choose a dress or top with a defined waist. Emphasize your curves with a wrap dress or choose structured silhouettes.
- Inverted Triangle Shape: Balance the upper body with flared or full bottoms, like palazzo pants or kilts. Opt for statement sleeves or necklines to distract from broad shoulders.
Be Colorful and Accessorize
Bold colors help create an elongated look for curvy shapes, so don’t be shy when it comes to wearing bright colors and patterns. The right accessories can also make all the difference. Wear belts to cinch the waist and the right jewelry to accentuate all the right places.
At the end of the Day, Wear What Makes You Feel Confident
At the end of it all, always wear whatever it is that makes you feel beautiful. Whether it’s a fitted dress or a loose top, choose what makes you feel comfortable and confident!
