Today curvy women are no longer afraid to show their figure, unlike their peers from a decade ago. Today's fashion is more inclusive, and it is as easy to find plus-size leggings as those in S sizes. If you are in the plus-size category, here are some styling tips that can help you show the world the best version of yourself.
1. Understand your body type
This is the most basic styling tip for any sized woman; even if two women's weight is the same, they must style differently if their body shape is different. Hence the first rule to shopping for plus-sized clothes is knowing your body type and then shopping accordingly. For example, for those with Apple figures, wrap tops suit them best, while those with pear-type bodies should wear fitted tops. Only that way can you highlight the best features of your body and cover the unflattering ones.
2. Don't shop by clothing tag size
Clothing sizes are often misleading and sometimes differ from brand to brand. Sometimes the size you normally wear may not have the same measurement as the clothes you buy. Instead of feeling bad or thinking that your weight has changed, try one size bigger or smaller. If it fits well and looks good on you, buy it. The number on the tag is not important as long as it fits well.
3. Don't buy oversized clothes
For a long time, the go-to style of clothes for plus-size women has been oversized or casual clothes. But they are and never will be the right styling method for plus-size women. Wearing clothes that fit well is the key to looking good. And by fit, it means comfortable fit, not a tight fit where you have trouble breathing or going about daily life. Shapeless clothes will never make you look good and will only bring down your confidence level. So, buy a pair of comfortable yoga leggings and not some baggy bottom wear.
4. Wear the right undergarment
Wearing the right undergarments is the last and most important styling tip for plus-size women. Many women fail in this and wear undergarments that don't fit well. Remember, your undergarment is the foundation of your style, so take time to find the best fit for yourself. Invest in good ones and then choose the one that fits the style of clothing you are wearing.
