The Dos and Don’ts of Dressing for a Plus-Size Body

Let’s face it, dressing for a plus-size body can be a challenge. With limited options and outdated fashion rules, it can be hard to know what to wear and what to avoid. But fear not, my fellow plus-size fashionistas, because I’ve got the ultimate guide for you – the dos and don’ts of dressing for a plus-size body. And trust me, we’re going to have some fun with this one.

DO: Embrace Color and Prints Gone are the days when plus-size women were told to stick to dark colors and avoid bold prints. It’s time to break those outdated fashion rules and embrace color and prints. Wear that bright yellow dress, rock that floral jumpsuit, and don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns.

DON’T: JUST Wear Shapeless Clothing I get it, sometimes you just want to throw on a big t-shirt and call it a day. But here’s the thing, shapeless clothing doesn’t do anyone any favors. It can make anyone look frumpy. So if I’m going to wear something shapeless, I pair it with something form fitting (a big T, with a bike short). This way you can still choose clothing that accentuates your curves and shows off your best features.

DO: Experiment with Accessories Accessories are a great way to add some personality to your outfit and draw attention to your best features. Try a statement earring, or an unusual neckline to draw the eye upward, or a belt to cinch in your waist and show off your curves.

DON’T: Follow All the Fashion Rules Fashion rules were made to be broken, especially when it comes to plus-size fashion. Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and can’t wear. Wear what makes you feel confident and beautiful, regardless of what the fashion “experts” say.

DO: Invest in High-Quality Undergarments Good undergarments are the foundation of any great outfit, and this is especially true for plus-size women. Invest in high-quality bras, underwear, and shapewear that fit well and provide the support you need. Trust me, it’s worth it.

DON’T: Be Afraid to Try New Styles Trying new styles can be scary, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. Don’t be afraid to try out that crop top or jumpsuit you’ve been eyeing. You might just be surprised at how amazing you look and feel.

DO: Tailor Your Clothing Just because something doesn’t fit perfectly off the rack doesn’t mean you can’t wear it. Tailoring your clothing to fit your body can make a world of difference in how you look and feel. Find a good tailor and get ready to fall in love with your wardrobe all over again.

DON’T: Obsess Over Sizing Sizing can be a tricky thing, especially with different brands and styles running differently. Don’t obsess over the number on the tag. Instead, focus on how the clothing fits and feels on your body.

DO: Mix and Match Mixing and matching different pieces can create a unique and personalized look that shows off your style. Don’t be afraid to mix prints, textures, and styles to create a look that is uniquely you.

DON’T: Let Anyone Dictate Your Style At the end of the day, your style is yours and yours alone. Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and can’t wear or what is “flattering” for your body type. Wear what makes you feel happy and confident, and own it.

In conclusion, the dos and don’ts of dressing for a plus-size body are all about breaking down outdated fashion rules and embracing your unique style. So go ahead and wear that bright pink jumpsuit, mix and match those patterns, and don’t forget to accessorize. And above all, remember that confidence is the key to looking and feeling amazing in whatever you wear.
