LASTINCH - Your Ultimate Plus Size Fashion Destination
Although curves look hot, you must know how to best achieve them and look great in them. The main focus would be to create a trimmer silhouette, curvalicious, looks and not bulky looks.
You will need to pay special attention to every detail on the cloth on the body frame and how the colors are combined. Plus size clothing offer one advantage to petite: you have more cloth to work with and you can use bigger details, all to your advantage. You should go for those details that are scaled to the size of your body.
There are endless options for dressing a plus size body with plus size clothing, starting with the small details to the very cloth you wear. Some little things such as a couple of extra necklace layers will create a fuller look. In this article, we will concentrate on three basic strategies of dressing in plus clothing.
1. Ensure proper fit: Improper fitting is the main temptation for most plus size people. We assume that every woman would not hate her size but that does not mean there is anything wrong with creating the outlook that you want for your body. However, over-sized clothes and layers of clothing – that many people use to conceal their sizes – will only make you bigger. Always remember that Lumpy is frumpy. You can use proper fitting clothes to eliminate unevenness in your silhouette and keep the bust up.
2. Get the body scaling right: Ensure that the prints and accessories are scaled rightly with your size.
3. Prints, shapes and details should be strategic: Work with vertical details and patterning instead of cross patterns. Make sure to compliment your colors.
You also need to be familiar with your body type and shape and choose plus size clothing that works for that particular type of body. More particularly, you need to consider the appropriate contours and proportions of your body figure.
Remember, plus size is not a category by itself when dressing plus size bodies: some women are shorter than others and the body shapes will also vary. Some women have wider shoulders compared to hips than others.
