Plus Size Designer Clothing Shopping Tips
Is shopping for plus size designer clothing fun for you? Most women genuinely enjoy a day at the mall shopping for the latest fashion trends, but for plus sized women, looking for new clothes is a major chore. Instead of getting excited looking for a hot style or a great bargain, these women are just looking for anything that has some style and fits properly. Shopping is no longer fun, but rather, is an almost depressing experience.
However, it does not have to be. It can, and should, be a fun and rewarding experience. I want to change the perception, and give you some great tips that will start making your shopping experience for plus size designer clothes truly exciting.
First, we need to change your mindset and expectation. Most women falsely feel that the only options are oversized skirts and really long dresses. The more you can cover up, the better, right? Wrong! Having all the extra material hanging off of you actually creates the perception of a larger body being hidden underneath than is actually there.
Let me ask you, how many times have you wished to lose just 15 to 20 pounds? Most plus sized women can do this almost instantly, at least in other peoples eyes, when they wear the right clothes for their body.
Focus your efforts on finding clothes that fit your frame. A nice A-Line skirt will do wonders for your body shape. Not only does it provide a slimming waistline, but it also over emphasizes the bottom of your legs to give the perception of a slimmer waist as well.
Avoid patterns in your clothes that tend to look stretched when they are on you. For example, blocks and rectangle shapes tend to stretch, giving off a look that is not near as flattering as a thin line or even a light floral print.
Above all else, focus on your neckline and chest area. Wear shirts and tops that show a little skin up top! This gives the visual image of a nice, long neckline, and takes the eyes to the more flattering parts of your body, and away from the mid section that you may be concerned about.
There are so many great plus size designer clothes out there that are full of style and flair, that you can really look great each day. No more solid black clothes that cover up every part of your body. Start to show a little more skin, and work with the angles of your body to really emphasize areas that make a difference.
