5 Essential Fashion Tips for Full Figured Women

December 13, 2006 · 0 comments

With many options nowadays readily available to plus size women in the clothing department, especially online, a curvy lady needs to choose items which will flatter her figure and at the same time be comfortably fitting. Here are 5 essential tips to keep in mind, which have been brought to us by Kristine Blenkhorn Rodriguez of the Chicago Tribune.

  1. Fabric counts! Ensure the fabric you choose it not a crunchy one as this type can make you look bigger.
  2. Avoid pleats. These are a definite no no for plus size women as they magnify curves, no enhance them!
  3. Don’t sweat it. Wicking fabrics are a must for larger women.
  4. Avoid clothes that do not give definition to your shape! (Items also known as tents.) Hiding under loose fabric does not help and does not look good.
  5. Avoid clothing with cuts towards the middle of the body, as this puts emphasis on this area of the body. Instead choose items which make the most of your best assets, legs for example.

Thanks so much for these tips. My daughter and I manufacture clothing for plus-size women. Our company is called Jahqoi. We are BBWs too. So we know the special challenges full-figured women face
in trying to find garments that compliment our bodies. However, there are exceptions to every rule. So we tell our customers to be daring and experimental. Don’t buy the same styles every time. Break out of the mold and see what happens.

Still, we appreciate your tips. It’s good to have some guidelines
for those who aren’t sure about what looks good on their particular figure.
