Everyone should know that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. But more often than not, when we flip through fashion and lifestyle magazines, we are bombarded with images of very slender and skinny women who are wearing the latest fashion trends. They are asked to represent the fashionable clothing lines in the world because skinny is now directly proportionate to beautiful. We should not tolerate this kind of thinking that media rubs off the minds of people, especially the young girls. They are the ones who really patronize shows, movies and magazines where all skinny girls are featured endlessly.
To all plus size women out there, here are 2 tips that a lot of people do not know. They will definitely help you look great and without compromising style
1. Stay away from baggy clothes. A lot of plus size women feel and think that they are bigger than they really are. A lot of them try to hide their problem areas such as arms, thighs and mid sections by wearing really big clothes. The rule of the thumb that every plus-size women should know is wearing baggy and loose clothes only make you look bigger than you really are. Baggy clothes hide your full figure and make you look like you do not have curves at all.
2. Go for figure hugging clothes. But the rule is, know your measurements. Make sure that your clothes are not too tight and not too loose. Instead of wearing baggy clothes, try to look for clothes that accentuate your curves. Why not try a monochromatic dress that goes just below your knees. Opt for v necklines that make you look thinner. Also look for clothes that have sleeves just below your elbows or dresses with longer sleeves to show the thinnest part of your arm.
3. Get a proper bra-fitting with a professional. If you did not know, wearing the right bra can work wonders to your shape. Most plus-size women have fuller breasts so they think that big bras should do the job. That is just wrong. Wearing the right bra will lift your breasts and enhance your figure. You will be surprised at the effect of getting the right bra. Some people swear that they look like they lost 10 pounds just by wearing the right bra for them.
Sad but true, most of popular clothes stores do not have clothes that are trendy for plus-size women. All of the great styles and designs of clothes seem to be only custom made for skinny girls. Plus-size girls do not have a lot of clothes and designs to choose from so they just settle for the boring sweat shirts and baggy pants combo. What is weird is that there a lot of plus size women these days. Don’t you think that it makes perfect sense for clothing stores to make fashionable clothes that cater to those women who are little bit on the heavy side? It will definitely increase their popularity and income. Armed with these tips, plus-size girls can now look beautiful and confident with what they have. Good luck pretty girls!
