It is an intimidating process for plus-sized women to find the right clothes. Fortunately, more and more stores are carrying plus-sized clothing, making it easier for larger women to shop for clothing. These newer stores tend to market themselves to every taste, shape, and size.
Plus size clothing should be selected according to your own personal preferences such as vibrant colors or flagrant prints. Accessories such as belts and scarves can update an outfit that was in a style that is now out of fashion.
After that you should look at your lingerie. Do you own a plus-sized bra? Upwards of 70-85% of women are currently wearing the wrong sized bra. Don’t shy away from getting your bust size professionally measured. Many stores that offer plus-sized clothing will have staff who can properly take your measurements. Often you don’t even have to take off your shirt so there is little chance of embarrassment.
Are you ready to start looking for some plus size clothing? We all have social events we have to deal with – weddings, office parties, blind dates. Is there something marked on your calendar? Don’t delay… start looking for a plus size dress now, to make sure you can find the right one in advance.
There are many different styles of plus size dresses. Make sure you find the one that is just right for you. You might find that you prefer a sweeping dress with empress sleeves and other times, a cute little number might be what you need. Being plus sized should not limit the styles of the dresses you wear.
Don’t be afraid to mix up styles and tastes. Buy something that is comfortable and looks good on your figure. Larger women can get away with lower plunging necklines and you can easily show that off with a large necklace give your outfit that special “pop”!
You should make sure to be honest with yourself. For instance, simply try clothes on and ignore the size numbers. If the item fits and feels good, buy it. Don’t be upset if you are a size 18 and the item says a size 20. Remember, you are not your dress size, so make sure to buy what feels and looks best on you.
