How To Dress For the Plus Sized Body

Too many women feel restricted when it comes to loving and dressing their curvy bodies. I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be like that. Accentuating your assets, understanding your silhouette and knowing what works best for your body will not only make you appear more stylish but will also make you feel happier and more confident. Here are a few simple tips to help you look your best.

APPLE SHAPED BODIES

Highlighting the waistline is the key for women with an apple figure. This body type carries most of the weight at the torso so it’s essential you create an illusion of an hourglass figure. Do this by showcasing your legs and smaller hips, drawing attention away from the midsection. Plus size fashion doesn’t have to be boring. Grab a timeless a timeless midi pencil skirt, straight and skinny jeans and complement them with V-necks or drop waist tops. Dresses in A-line cuts and single-breasted hip-length coats also work well for you. Go for tailored and structured pieces that don’t cling to the tummy.

HOURGLASS SHAPED BODIES

Like apple outlines, women with hourglass figures have a larger chest as well. Your goal is to wear outfits flatter and fit your curves. Although this body type typically looks good in everything (and we hate you for it,lol) your silhouette can get lost in the wrong piece. Go for classic outlines like peplums, pencil skirts and shift dresses that are more structured and tailored. Long necklaces are the perfect choice for accessorizing.

PEAR SHAPED BODIES

Women with pear bodies should aim towards balancing out their torso with the lower half. Pear bodies often find it difficult to look for bottoms that fit their small waist and ample hips. Standout with your plus size fashion by wearing detailed and printed tops. High-waisted, flat front slacks, A-line cuts, long blazers and jackets, belts and boot-cut jeans are your go-to choice for showcasing that petite waist.

RECTANGLE SHAPED BODIES

Women with rectangle silhouettes typically have an undefined waistline with same sized hips and bust, giving them a boxy figure. The goal, in this case, is to create the illusion of a curvier shape. Ruffled tops, bold prints and asymmetrical cuts like wide-leg pants, peplums, heavy knits, tiered styles and tulip skirts can help create a proportionate body.
