If you’re a
size 14 or greater you must know the styling tricks that will help you look


As far as we
are concerned here in Shaidy’s world, there is no perfect body. There is a
beautiful body for each person. So plus size ladies should not leave fashion statements
to the slender ladies alone.



Curves are
hot, and gets the “who is that chick”
attention even faster than other body Sizes.  It’s all about accenting your assets and
covering your “non- assets”( lets use that
). There is no excuse for a plus size lady not to look fab at this age.
There are so many stores including online stores that sell fitting cloths so
take advantage of them. . There are so many plus size ladies who work their
bodies and make them slender ladies drool you need to do is to make sure that
you look curvalicious, not frumpy 🙂 That means avoiding anything that makes
you look bulky and rather focus on smoothing out your lumps and bumps.


You don’t
have to hide them but if you want to look your best, you need to make sure your
proportions are balanced and that you’ve got the curves on all the right


are some Style tips as written by chic fashionista.

Your main
focus when buying women’s plus size clothing is to create a trimmer silhouette that makes the eye go up and down,
instead of side to side.



For this you
need to pay attention to what details you put on your body frame and how you
combine the colors of your outfit.


Compared to
petites you have more space to work with and you can handle bigger details,
however, it’s extremely important that you select details that are scaled to your body size. Because if you
for example put on a dainty necklace, you’ll emphasize your large proportions.


But on the
other hand, you can strategically put on a couple of extra necklace layers to
create a fuller look that complements your body scale.

Basically, I recommend you to base your
“plus size fashion mantra” on 3 basic golden strategies:


  • Ensure
    proper fit.
    I know how tempting it is to hide your body in layers and
    oversized clothes, but they’ll only make you look bigger! Great fit makes
    sure nothing looks lumpy. Lumpy is frumpy.


Your bra is
especially important – it has to fit to keep your bust up and eliminate
unevenness in your silhouette that will only distract the eye.


  • Get the
    body scale right.
    Scaling prints and accessories with
    your size makes sure you won’t look bigger in comparison.
  • Strategically
    work with prints, shapes and details
    to make the eye go up and
    down. Vertical details are your best friends.


Now let’s get the low-down on my plus size fashion advice to you – the basics
on how to dress your plus size body frame:


Dress Your Body Shape



The first
thing you need to do before shopping for womens plus clothing is to take a close look at the contours and
proportions of your body figure.


Plus size
isn’t a category by itself. There are both tall and short full figure women,
and each and one of them has a different body shape that requires different set
of styling and clothing strategies to look their best. For example, you might
have wider shoulders compared to your hips, while your girlfriend who is also a
plus size has wider hips than shoulders.
Well-Balanced Proportions Can Make You Look Trimmer


By knowing
what body shape you have, you’ll be able to decide where and how to correctly
place clothes and accessories, to create curves on the right places so that
you’ll make any prominent body part less obvious, but still keep your waist
defined to help you look trim. These balanced proportions equal a proportional hourglass body shape.
Basically, downplaying any prominent areas of your body
to achieve well-balanced body proportions, can help you look leaner and taller. Balanced outfit proportions de-emphasize and
conceal any prominent body part you may have. Ever thought about why many pear
shapes look shorter and “thicker” than they are? That’s because their
hips take the center-stage and make the eye go horizontally.


Do You Have
Short or Long Legs?

another key factor to dressing your full-figure size is your body frame’s vertical line; meaning, how long your upper
half is compared to your bottom half (torso versus hips and legs). You
might have longer or shorter legs than your upper body or vice versa, which
also requires a couple of outfit adjustments.

Despite that
image consultants are preaching about balanced body proportions, having long
legs is considered attractive – simply because it elongates your frame and can
trick people into thinking you’re taller and thinner. Short legs can make you
look stumpy. However, super-long legs and a super-short torso may throw off
your proportions.The most important thing is, let your best assets be confidence. Holla.
