Some larger sized lovelies are probably guilty of hiding under layers of baggy clothing. This is not a good idea. We should shed some of those layers, a daunting experience for those of us who aren't sizes 10 or 12 I know, but the time has come to bring out the best of the beautiful, full-figured woman that you are.
So if you are:
This means that you have a bigger upper and mid-section, so the best approach is to bring more attention to the lower part of your body and create longer lines. Empire style tops and dresses (high waistline just under your boobs) would look great on you as would V-necks, but steer well clear of halter necks and trousers or skirts with puffy side pockets
Are you smaller on the top and wider at the bottom ? Then this is your shape. Bring attention to the upper part of your body by wearing some bold accessories such as a neck scarf, necklace and earrings. Definitely no clothing with bulky side pockets but off the shoulder and square neck tops will help to create balance.
Or do you have an
Full bust, full hips and a small waistline. WOW. If your lucky enough to be blessed with this Marilyn Monroe figure, who by the way at some point of her life was a size 16, then the wrap style top or dress would look fantastic on you as they accentuate the waistline. Fitted tops that go in at the waist are very good as are low-waisted trousers with a slight flare at the bottom for balance. Avoid overstated tops and blouses with ruffles and the importance of a well fitted bra cannot be over emphasized.
So there you have it. Go and play dress up, find the big beautiful woman that you are, AND FLAUNT HER.
