You know that moment when you try on an outfit and realize it was absolutely made for you?! Well, this blog is compiled with outfits to give you that same feeling. Here’s how to dress for your plus size body type:
One of the most flattering silhouettes for an hourglass body is fit and flare. This typically hugs the waist and flares over the curves of your hips, showing off all your curves. The most popular fit and flare silhouettes are be dresses and peplum tops. If you really want to enhance your curves, you can also pick a body-hugging option that accentuates your hip and bust area.
The two factors you have to consider when dressing yourself are your legs and chest. Wearing skinny jeans, or any sort of tighter pants, is appealing on an apple shaped body. For tops, deep V-necks help highlight your shape. For a more moderate look, tunics and shift dresses are always a solid choice.
The focus when dressing your pear shaped body is balancing out your upper body with your lower. High waisted bottoms are ultra flattering – whether it’s a high waisted skirt or high waisted jeans, this silhouette is made for you. For tops, printed and detailed tops are your go-to.
When dressing your rectangle body, the goal is to create more dimension. Jumpsuits are a great way to portray a curvier shape – not to mention super comfy. However, oversized bottoms paired with a tight fit top is the staple piece for you.
Although there are tons of tricks to dress in the most flattering way for your plus size body, the most important factor you have to consider is how you feel in the outfit. Confidence is key!
