The size of your beauty has nothing to do with the size of your body. Skinny can be ugly. And big can be beautiful. The secret to looking good in your plus-size skin is to choose your clothes carefully, enhance your best features, and wear your things with confidence.
Buy the Right Size
- Eliminate Loose Looks. One of the biggest mistakes a full-bodied girl can make is hiding in oversized and baggy clothes. Yes, your baggy t-shirt may hide an unsightly bulge, but it also masks your ample chest and other positive features. Plus, sloppy clothes make you look bigger and can make you look unkempt.
- Impossible Strict. Only bugs and supermodels may use spandex and other glomming materials. If you have meat on your bones, a body-hugging shirt and pants will accentuate any lumps or creases that are in your figure.
- Find Matches. Instead, choose clothes that fit your body without clinging to it. The idea is to show off your silhouette. A good option is to choose clothes that are similar to ruching Old Navy graphic slub-knit tee or royal waste as found here Plus Moda Women’s Plus-Size Geo Pop Collection Dress.
Build a Solid Foundation
What you wear under your clothes is just as important as the clothes themselves. And the main ingredient for getting in good shape is a well-fitting bra. Women everywhere were shocked when Oprah launched the “Bra Revolution,” stating that 8 out of 10 women wear an ill-fitting bra. An ill-fitting bra can feature backward roll, make your breasts sag, cause… er… your cups to overflow, and cause the straps to eat away at your shoulders. On the other hand, the right bra will lift and separate your “girl” and show off your waistline.
You can find a variety of beautiful plus size bras at a number of retailers including new ones The Perfect Coverage Bra by Victoria Secret available in sizes up to 40DDD in a variety of colors and prints.
Throw Tapered Pants
Tapered pants aren’t anyone’s friend – especially plus-sized women. However tempted you may be to follow fashion fads, remember that you don’t want to have the same shape as the Dairy Queen dip cone. Instead, opt for a straight leg or boot cut that gently grazes your derriere and thighs before dropping straight down. A good choice is Plus-sized Suki in Silver Jeans embellished cut.
Color Yourself Beautiful
Yes, black is a slimming color, but unless you are an “all things Goth” fan, you should definitely add some color to your wardrobe. Monotonous clothes can also be slimming–no matter what color they are. Also, black can make your skin look pale and faded. Wearing a top or scarf in a color that accentuates your skin tone or accentuates your eye color will draw attention to your beautiful face.

Now you are ready to flaunt your wares with confidence and style. Embrace your curves–and others will too!
