essemorcI was talking to one of my guy friends the other day about the importance of being thin. It is not about the number, so stop obsessing on that! He said, if a girl knows how to show off what she has, he could care less about her weight. Most guys and ladies, don't care about it. They only care about how you present and carry yourself. Any body type, man or woman, can look good with what they got all you need is to take a few fashion tips for your particular shape. And remember, keeping healthy (and I don't mean thin, just healthy) will show and make you look even better regardless of your weight. But anyways, onto fashion!
If your a plus sized gal, you should try clothes that compliment your figure. Throw away those plain, loose t-shirts and trade them in for a baby doll top. Which is not only cute, but will also hide your stomach and compliment your chest. When shopping try to find shirts that highlight your best qualities. And I don't necessarily mean indiscreetly, just a top that will show what you got. And maybe you want a shirt that will slim your waist, try belt or cinched style shirts. As for bottoms try, darker colored jeans with a boot cut style will give your legs a taller, skinnier look. (especially with some high-heeled boots.) And as they always say, black is quite slimming. Well any deep color will seem to have a better fit look to them. Which also, never forget the importance of wearing your size. Too small and too big of clothing will make you seem larger than you actually are. If needed you should never hesitate to get measured.
And if your a bigger man, just know most women aren't looking for the body builders. The only initial turn off for the average woman would be looking "sloppy", just remember to take pride in your appearance. Most women like clean, cut, confident men. Pin-striped, button up shirts with a plain undershirt is casual, yet respectable and eye-catching. And if you want to wear a regular t-shirt, adding some accessories like a nice jacket will give you a tall, thin look to your outfit. Just be sure to stay away from stretchy bands that tighten at the bottom, especially if you have a bit of a stomach they can make you appear larger.
These are just a few tricks to show off what you have, and not hide the important attractive features. But mainly shopping at stores with specified plus sizes, will be beneficial. For them to be successful, they make clothes specifically for bigger people. Not just in sizes, but in styles and cuts. And I can understand, it can be very difficult to find stores that actually sell quality plus clothing sizes. My solution...online shopping for larger clothes is becoming more and more popular with the vast variety of sizes, you can find just about anything to fit. And I would recommend taking a look for the wide range of styles. If you have ever been to a store and fell in love with an outfit, yet they only made it for the thin and curve-less, look online. Usually you can find exactly what your looking for in your size rather than being limited to the malls choices. Just remember when picking clothes out, anyone can look good by dressing to show off the body type they have, rather than hide it.
