Can Fuller Figures Wear Prints?

When reading style guides and related articles targeted to full-figured women I often come across this tip: Stay away from prints. Although sometimes it is true that certain prints can be very unflattering, other print are done right and actually enhance a plus size woman’s figure and her curves.

So today I’d like to re-word this ever-prominent ‘tip’ to: Choose only print which are done right! Make sure that any clothing with print work with your curves to flatter your figure.

If you look around through plus size specialist stores, you’ll find a multitude of clothing in prints which are made for curves! Take a look for instance, at the latest collection from Kiyonna. You will find that this is dominated with prints that are combined to perfection with clean lines, smart pin-tucks and 3/4 length sleeves, which keep such styles universally figure flattering! Kiyonna’s classic wrap silhouette dress is given a modern update in a bold giraffe print jersey (see picture). A richly detailed paisley print offers just the right amount of accent to Kiyonna’s deep brown kimono dress as well.

Kiyonna have managed to create a fusion of prints and stunning silhouettes with an end result of utter sophistication and effortless, chic and season-less style.

    I have worn prints that are just awesome, and others that are just awful. I think it depends on the print!

    Really??? I think prints are a great way to actually appear slimmer – given the right print and right cut – they distract away from, ahem, other things.

    I know that’s what I always thinks when I read fashion tips articles and read that plus size women should stay away from prints… say what?? That’s why I posted this entry really to encourage curvy ladies to wear print and not be afraid of them. Obviously though there are some print which one should stay away from, so as long as the prints flatter and enhance the curves, bring it on!
