Appropriate fitting bra

First and foremost, find the most appropriate fitting bra possible.  This can be a challenge for any woman, but especially for plus sized women.

Studies have shown that most women are wearing the incorrect size bra, so it is very important to be properly measured to insure that the bra you’re wearing not only fits right, but helps you look your best!

Wearing a bra that is ill-fitting could result in the straps digging into your shoulders or back, a saggy appearance, or unwanted lines that show through your clothing.

There are many stores that cater to bra as well as lingerie items for plus sized women, as some store do not carry certain sizes that are often needed by plus sized women.  So, first and foremost, be measured for the correct size bra.

Appropriate fitting jeans

We all know how difficult it is to find a pair of jeans that fit just right! The shopping process for jeans might not be fun, but it is definitely worth it. If you need to dedicate an entire day to jeans shopping, do it.  It is much better to have only one or two pairs of jeans that fit just right rather than having many pairs that don’t.

Once you find the pair that fit you great, buy several pairs.  Jeans are a staple that can be worn every day and can be dressed up or down.  They are definitely worth the invest of both your time and your money.  Keep in mind that dark washed jeans and jeans that have stretch can often be more comfortable and flatter figuring.  Also, many stores are now making “curvy” jeans that are tailored for fuller figures.

Cardigans

Cardigans are great ways to add some spunk and color to your wardrobe, as well as accenting your curves.  Putting a belt over a cardigan helps to accentuate the waist and your curves.  Cardigans are great for layering and can also be dressed up or down, and can be worn with jeans, dresses, etc.  They are a must have staple piece.

Accessories

Accessories can do wonders for your wardrobe and for your body.  For example, a bold and colorful necklace can be worn to draw attention away from your hips/thighs and up towards your smaller area.  Or a belt can be worn at waist level to accentuate your waist and curves.  And the great thing about accessories is that they don’t come in special plus sizes, they are one size fits all! So you can shop for accessories without having to worry whether or not they will have your size!

A great pair of heels

Heels are a great way to dress up any outfit, whether it is jeans or a dress.  Also, heels are a great way to accentuate your legs and make you look taller, which in turn can give the appearance of a smaller body frame.  Heels don’t have to be uncomfortable, either.  They don’t have to be sky high to have slimming effect.  Invest in a pair of comfortable wedges or ankle boots that accentuate your calves and also are comfortable to wear.
