Plus Size styles :)

I was at work today and I made a couple of new friends :), lovely people! Super excited to get to know them! In one of my conversations a pretty lady asked me what I thought would look good on her, she said she has a hard time finding things that fit well on her. She is plus size and wanted some help, so I told her I would give her some info, go shopping with her to help find her styles and post on my bloggie as well :) I really believe that we as women have to love ourselves. I believe in being healthy, but while we improve ourselves we must love ourselves enough to be confident in who we are as women and find the time to look great! :) I am not a plus size but I can understand the frustration plus size women go through, and so I decided to find sites you ladies can shop at and look amazing!!! Also some tips and what you can feel sexy and comfortable with! :) Here are some style, I will then add tips :) enjoy beautiful ladies, remember to be who you are!

Alright so the only website I didn't provide was pinupgirlclothing.com :) go check it out and see what you like! They have great sales too! Here are some fashion tips :)

1:jacket and pants or a skirt in the same color worn with a splash of color near the face elongates your profile and draws attention to your facial features. Although you may have been taught that black was your color because of its slimming effects, reserve it for that gorgeous little black dress instead.

2:Choose skirts and dresses that fall below the knees, unless of course gorgeous legs are your strong suit. Pair them with hose and shoes in the same hue for a slenderizing effect. Avoid pleated skirts that make your hips look bigger.

3: Wear open jackets or blazers to create a vertical line, but beware of long jackets if you are short. These make the legs look shorter and plumper. A hemline just below the hips works well.

4:Straight-leg or flared pants draw attention away from the thighs, but should be well fitted in the waist and hips.

5:Wear scoop or V-neck shirts to emphasize the neck, making it appear longer. Longscarves draped around the neck and allowed to hang freely are a great way to add vibrant color near the face.

6:A good support bra is a must for plus-size women. It improves your appearance, posture and sense of self-confidence, and clothes will fit better as well.

7:Avoid clothing with large bold patterns. If you prefer patterns, choose medium to small designs in colors that complement your complexion, hair color and eyes.

8:Although it may be tempting to buy that shirt that is a little too small or one that gives you plenty of room to move, it is important that any clothing you choose fits well. Try several styles until you find one that fits your body. If clothes bind when you move, try a larger size.

Remember ladies to love who you are no matter what! be confident, walk with confidence and a smile :) Try these tips and styles I showed you and see which style you are :) enjoy beautiful ladies, I will be posting more styles up next week! enjoy, xoxo 
Monica

  9. thanks so much for following & leaving that comment!
    i completely agree with you... we as women have to love ourselves.. in order to be confident! i can understand how uncomfortable plus size girls must feel but at the same time i think that nowadays society's much more open to different bodyshapes than it was a few years ago. although being skinny is still a controversial "trend" (if not already established bodyshape.. :/), i think that thanks to all of those plus size collections and women standing up for this look and being proud and confident with their plus size, help society to broaden boarders.
    great post!
    xxx love

  50. I think it is so important to report on plus-sized styles. Plus-sized fashion doesn't get as much reporting time, but that does not make it any less significant.

  53. That's so great that you did this. I agree I think we should support each other but at the same time I'm a strong believer in being healthy. If you're healthy and plus-size, awesome but if you're plus-size and have health issues...then I think we should encourage each other to make those healthy changes.
