Most women today wear a size 14 or larger. Yet the images in magazines and television show women that are extremely thin and hold them up as standards of beauty for all women when this just isn’t the way it really is. The following are some easy ways to showcase your curvy figure that the catwalks and runways seem to have overlooked. Full figured and curvy woman can dress for success easily with these tips and suggestions.
Learn to love your full figure. It truly is something to celebrate and learn to embrace. No matter what your size, dress to show off your very best assets. Covering up your figure or wearing all dark colors is not the answer. Accentuate your best body features and dress to impress in every season.
For instance, if you have great shoulders, you will look amazing wearing sweetheart, scoop, v-neck, and off the shoulder tops. Go for beautifully patterned tops or fun, bright colors. You can add chunky or bedazzled necklaces to draw the eyes upwards as well.
Wonderfully toned arms can be accentuated with cap sleeves, short sleeves or even sleeveless tops. In the summertime, spaghetti strap tank tops give you the chance to show off athletic or toned arms. Sunless tanners can give your arms a bronzed and beautiful look in the spring and summer too. And don’t forget to showcase your amazing arms with trendy bracelets and cuffs too.
If you are blessed with a great bosom you can wear fitted shirts, scoop neck, and v neck shirts every day of the year. Make sure the tops are not tight or the v neck is too deep, or else you can come across as looking inappropriate, say in the work setting. There is a big difference between tight clothes and fitted clothes. A top that is too tight has buttons that pull and inadequate arm and chest space. It’s also important to wear a properly fitted bra. If you’ve never been properly fitted for a bra, you can ask for assistance in a local lingerie shop.
A great pair of legs should always be shown off. They can be accentuated with capris, dresses, skirts and low to medium heeled boots and shoes. You will look amazing wearing trendy boots with leggings in the winter, and sandals with shorts and skirts in the summer. You can also pull off wearing high platforms and peep toe shoes, as well as flats and ballerina slippers. Great legs means you can have your pick when it comes to fashion footwear, so go for it!
Full sized women can under emphasize their less than favorite areas with some thought to styling as well. Lose your muffin top by avoiding low rise jeans paired with short tops. Wearing colorful scarves, longer tops and a great necklace give the illusion of a long and lean waistline.
One way to get rid of cankles is by wearing wide legged pants, great belts and longer dresses and skirts. Avoid wearing skinny jeans, platform shoes, and leggings to avoid calling attention to this area. Accentuate your upper body with bright colors and printed blouses to draw the eyes upwards. And don’t forget about great jewelry and other fun and colorful accessories.
A fuller bum can be slimmed down by wearing slacks that aren’t too fitted or tight. Wearing properly fitted pants is always more flattering than wearing skin tight jeans and pants. Super low rise pants and skinny jeans can make a fuller bottom look larger than it is, so steer clear from these fashions. Coordinated vests, blazers and belted dresses look wonderful and can make a fuller bottom look more proportional to the rest of the body.
Learning to dress yourself to show off your body’s most appealing features and minimize your less favorite parts is the key to successful dressing. Full bodied women can learn to love their beautiful curves and show off their fashion taste with confidence.
