From looking around this site, you can see that we want to make sure you, as plus size women, feel fabulous! Today, rather than discussing products and retailers, we’re going to look at some practical tips you can use to select some awesome outfits! All these style tips have been extensively and exclusively researched just for you guys!
TIP #1 – GET YOUR COLOURS WORKING FOR YOU
A vibrant colour not only provides a bit of a ‘pick me up’ but also allows you to attract attention to exactly where you want it. (Cool right?) For example: You pick a plain coloured sexy plus size with a bit of leg showing. You love the dress and want to wear it, but don’t want people looking at your really want people looking at your legs. You could accessorise it with say a smart long sleeved bold pink jacket. Creating a ‘smart sexy look’ as well as achieving your desired goal of drawing attention away from the legs you aren’t so confident with.
TIP #2 – ACCESORISE AND DE…STRESSORISE (OK, I’M NOT SURE THAT WORKS BUT RUN WITH ME!)
If people are going to miss anything out of an outfit it’s the accessories! People always forget the accessories. But ladies… Along side your sexy plus size dress, accessories can prove to be your secret weapon. Accessories help you create proportion. If you feel your hips look quite wide, top off your outfit with a large vintage shady hat. This creates the illusion of balance. Similarly, If you want to create a ‘waist’ illusion making a clear divide between the upper and lower half of your outfit invest in a statement belt!
TIP#3 – THE UNMENTIONABLES
That’s right. A great choice of underwear can offset your sexy plus size dress look! You are building the foundation of you look. Regular bra fittings, comfy seam free panties from the department store. All these ensure that everything is in the right place, looks perky and you’ve got no embarrassing lines.
TIP #4 – EMPHASISE YOUR ASSETS
There are a lot of tips out there. The first thing to be aware of is that just like any body shape, it’s all about emphasising your OWN assets to make you feel the best you can. So, If you feel you have a great chest, select a sexy plus size dress with a statement neckline to emphasise this (i.e a sweetheart neckline, that drops at it’s lowest point just where you want it). Get creative, get quirky and GET YOUR SEXY BACK!
