Summer is here and with the warmer temps comes the need to update your wardrobe. When you’re on the curvy side, wearing less clothing can make you feel a little self conscious, so I’ve put together these tips to keep you looking and feeling your best!
1. What you can’t see is sometimes more important that what you can see.
While you may think I’m talking about your personality and confidence, I’m actually talking about your undergarments! 🙂 Wearing the right undergarments can make you look better and feel better. I’m a huge fan of the Spanx Higher Power Brief! They’re perfect for smoothing out unsightly bulges and giving you a smooth silhouette under dresses!
Also, make sure you are wearing the correct size bra. You don’t want to have back bulge and you don’t want you cup to runneth over! 🙂
2. Accentuate the positive!
We all have features that we like more than others! You may have a great pair of legs or fabulous shoulders! Maybe you have a tiny waist or fabulous bust! Whatever it is that you love about yourself, find clothes that highlight that area!
3. Wear clothes that fit and flatter!
Regardless of what size you wear…whether you’re an 8 or a 28, you need to wear clothes that fit and flatter. When you wear clothes that are too large, they make you look bigger than you are and you’ll look sloppy. When you wear clothes that are too small, you’ll show all kinds of bulges and bumps. Either way, it’s not a good look! Choose clothes that fit well and if they don’t fit the way you need them to, take them to a tailor. It will be a worthwhile investment!
4. Add a pop of color to your outfits!
We’ve all heard that black can make you look thinner and while that can be true, it doesn’t mean that you should dress solely in black!
5. Pick patterns with care and pick patterns with flare!
I’ve heard it said that plus-sized women should stick with solid colors. I couldn’t disagree more! While the wrong pattern can draw the eye to your trouble spots, the right pattern can take your style level from ordinary to extraordinary!
Clothes may make the man, but accessories make the woman! 🙂 Pick fabulous shoes, jewelry, scarves and hats.
7. Hold your head high!
It doesn’t matter how great you dress if you’re not confident and you slouch. Hold your head high, be confident, and smile!
