How to wear plus size dress fashionably

Fashion isn't completely fun unless you can celebrate it, regardless of your size. It takes maturity and confidence to be able to feel good and comfortable in your size.

But the good news is, you can easily wear a plus size dress that flatters your curves as long as you know some simple techniques. Aside from exuding confidence, knowing what works and what doesn't, will help you strut what you've got, with elegance and style no matter the size.

So how should you wear a plus size dress?

Just like any plus size clothing, it's a must that you know your body shape. Are you a rectangle, an oval or the coveted hourglass shape? And from here, you can work out what would work well for you.

If you are a rectangle, you can play with prints or solid colors or a combination of both.Create an illusion of a waist with a belt, although I don't suggest wide belts. An oval carries all the weight in the middle therefore a belt will only emphasize the wrong parts. Instead, use killer accessories or prints that will draw attention away from your midriffs and onto your top. If yours is an hourglass body type, heavy on top or bottom, then you are more free to experiment with your dress types. You can wear prints, wear belts or stay with solid colors with accesories.

While fashion brands such as Onestopplus.co.uk have evolved to cater the needs of plus size women, dresses that slim women wear are also mostly available in bigger sizes. However, you must take heed because some dress styles are made simply for thinner figures. This include balloon and halter dresses (depending on your plus size body type).

Fashion is not about being thin, it's about celebrating your figure by being comfortable and confident with it.

  1. I am so glad you made this post. I was once plus size myself and found it very hard to find clothes that could fit me and be fashionable at the same time.
    It is sad how today you have to be thin to wear fashionable things.
