5 Key Fashion Tips for the Fuller Figure
by Gail Gill
If you wear clothing that flatters your figure you are sure to receive admiring glances. Follow the following five plus size fashion tips and you will achieve a stunning new look.
Choosing clothing for a fuller figure can be difficult. Reading fashion magazines can make you feel as if fashionable clothing is only for skinny people. Women with fuller figures can look beautiful and sexy. Here are five fashion tips for the woman with a fuller figure.
1. Choose Large Accessories
Carry a large handbag. A large handbag will complement your outfit. Carrying a small handbag may spoil the proportions of your outfit. Small handbags suit petite women and large handbags suit a woman with a fuller figure.
Wear large chunky pieces of fashion jewelry. Tiny necklaces make your neck and shoulders appear larger. Wear big beautiful pieces of fashion jewelry around your neck, so your jewelry will appear to be in proportion to your size. Large dangling earrings will flatter your face and draw attention to your better features, such as beautiful eyes.
Oversize watches, bangles, and bracelets will draw the eye away from large hands and arms. Tiny pieces of jewelry worn around the wrist will not suit a woman with large arms.
2. Wear Undergarments that Flatter your Figure
Make sure your underwear fits you perfectly. Have your bust measured by the sales assistant before you purchase your next bra. It is important to wear a bra that is fitted correctly. A well-fitted bra will enhance the appearance of your breasts. You will be surprised at the difference a well-fitted bra can make to the overall look of your outfit.
Wear either boy-cut panties or high-cut control panties under your clothes. Your tummy will appear flatter, if you wear the correct panties for your figure.
When you dress for a special occasion, choose to wear a body suit under your clothing. A well fitted body suit will smooth out your midriff bulges, flatten your tummy, lift your bottom, and shape your thighs.
3. Choose Fabulous Footwear
A medium heel or a high heel shoe will flatter the larger figure. Unless you have beautiful ankles, avoid shoes and sandals that have ankle straps.
Choose the correct boot size to suit your outfit. Short boots look wonderful when teamed with trousers or long skirts. If you want to wear a shorter length skirt, choose a pair of knee-high boots that just touch the hem of your skirt when you are walking.
Dark colored footwear will make your feet look smaller. If you are wearing light colored clothing, you can coordinate the color of your shoes to match your hair coloring instead of matching your outfit. For example, if you are wearing a cream outfit and you have dark-brown hair choose a pair of dark-brown colored shoes.
4. Choose Flattering Jeans or Trousers
Choose dark colored denim jeans to flatter the fuller figure. Boot-cut jeans or relaxed-fit jeans are the most becoming on a larger person. Both boot-cut and relaxed-fit jeans will help disguise wide hips. Jeans that have a flare at the bottom will draw the eye away from thick thighs or wide hips.
Avoid drawstring trousers and trousers with pleats. Both drawstring and pleated trousers focus attention on your hips and tummy. Wide cut trousers and trousers made from soft materials will suit the fuller figure. Team your trousers with a long length top that covers your tummy.
5. Wear Tunics and Long Length Blouses
A tunic or a long length blouse is the perfect choice for a woman with large breasts or a protrudent tummy. Unless your upper arms are very firm, avoid wearing sleeveless blouses. V-neck tunics and blouses will suit a fuller figured woman, so wear a v-neck instead of a turtle-neck or a high cut top.
Swinging tops are perfect for women with fuller figures. A swinging top will hide large arms. A long length swinging top will take attention away from your hips.
