Being a 'plus-size' doesn't mean you can't look good. All it takes is a little know-how and a healthy dose of confidence. The sure thing you need to know is that you don't need to hide anything, just find a way to show off the best features in your body and embrace it. Accept your body, love it, and walk tall!
Here are some advices to all women that consider themselves as a plus-sized:
1. Know Your Body Shape
In our previous article, we give you five different body types and the tricks of how to highlight your best assets of each type. To know your body shape is actually easier for you to determine what kind of clothes that will flatter your shape.
2. Avoid Too-Loose & Too-Thick Clothes
Avoid flare skirt, flare dress and loose straight blouse, these kind of clothes will make you more and more bigger than ever. Try a pencil skirt or high-waist pants, they will bring out only the best features of your figure. They make your curves visible and frame your figure nicely.
3. Pay Attention to the Pattern
Be careful with patterns. The pattern you wear draws a lot attention to your figure. Always go with small patterns, it'll look pretty on you. Horizontal stripes will never work for a plus-size, while vertical stripes works just fine.
4. Play with Layers
Bored with plain top? Don't be afraid to play layers! Choose not-too-tight tank tops and combine with not-too-loose outer. Long outer will help you create the illusion of a longer figure, while the short ones can only do the opposite.
