If you are not financially stable, the tips below will help you make the right fashion decisions.

Rules for the plus size

Say no baggy clothes

People think that baggy clothes hide the big arms and tummy. This is not true. Put on something that perfectly fits you and hugs your curves at the right parts. Search for brands that purely deal with plus size wear; they will give you the right options and sizes.

Confidence and comfort

You must achieve the above in every dress you put on. You can never be confident if you are not comfortable in what you are wearing. You must feel effective and comfortable in your clothes irrespective of your size. You do not have to play with fashion rules all the time; at times set your own rules.

Get yourself a shapewear

Many people believe that shapewear hides your body fat, this is not the case. It just brings your curves together and helps tone your body such that you can wear more clothes without much struggle. You can put on anything as long as you have your shapewear on. The shapewear you purchase must be made of a comfortable and stretchy fabric.

V-neck tops

This is ideal for pear-shaped bodies. These tops accentuate your upper body. That way attention will be shifted to the center of the body. Such tops are ideal for ladies with heavy legs.

Never wear crop tops

Yes, they are trending all over, but crop tops are not for everyone. If you are plus size, stick to long tops. They help cover the flab on the tummy and waist area. If you must put on a crop top, match it with high waist trousers.

Put on the right makeup

Nothing competes with a beautiful face. Before doing your makeup understand the occasion and the dress code. As long as they match the event, go for anything that accelerates your facial beauty. If you do not know how to do makeup, please get a specialist to help you. People will already be noticing you because of your size, do not want to draw more attention with bad makeup.
