July 29, 2017 Venoma 1 Comments

Dressing fashionably as a plus sized woman can be challenging as the industry caters to women of smaller stature. While this may be the case, there are some designers that focus solely on more endowed women and can offer great, high quality garments at a great price. It is a myth that plus sized women cannot be stylish. This article will provide several tips on how to dress in a stylish manner as a plus sized woman.

  1. Find clothes that fit. While it may be tempting to purchase clothing items that are loose can be enticing, they can actually make you appear to be larger than you are. Be sure to choose garments that fit your body without making you feel self conscious. Sometimes it is helpful to be professionally measured so that you know what size you should be buying. The better you feel about yourself in your clothing ensembles, the better you will look. If you are wearing a large sweater but you do not feel good in it, this lack of confidence in yourself will show in how you carry your body. A good fit will not only look good, but it will make you feel good too.

  1. Skip the mall. It can be frustrating to go to the mall or other retailers to only find that the styles you like are not available in your size. This can be a disappointment and cause some unhealthy thoughts about body image. To avoid such a situation, try shopping online at stores such as ChescaDirect. While shopping online you are sure to find great styles in your size. What is even better is that the items will be shipped directly to your home where you can try them on without a pesky salesperson or other patrons waiting impatiently for their turn in the changing room. If you do not like the clothes, simply send them back for a refund!

  1. Accessorize. A great outfit is not complete without some accessories. In fact, items such as a statement necklace or a scarf can round out an outfit and make it complete. Use accessories to your advantage and make them the focus of your outfit. If you are self conscious about your middle, wear a statement necklace and draw the attention upward to your neckline. This is a great way to feel good and look good at the same time!

  1. Shoes. Shoes can make or break an outfit. Be sure to wear the right shoes with your ensemble. For example, if you are wearing a beautiful pantsuit, you will want to wear some nice heels or flats that match. Heels can make your body appear longer which distributes weight more evenly and can make you look and feel thinner. Give this a try and see how you feel.

No matter what you wear, the key is to feel good about yourself. You have a lot to offer the world and your weight does not matter. What does matter, however, is how you see yourself and how you feel about yourself. Love your body and your clothes and you will be happier overall.
