The Perfect Fit!
Everyone comes into this world with a certain body shape, ether your a tall, short skinny or plus size, everyone has their unique figure, and what comes with this is in mind, is finding the clothing that flaunts and suites your body shape. I’m sure their are many times that you loved a certain type of trendy clothing, that set you in the must have mind set, but to a disappointment, when you looked in the mirror, your mind went from love it to love to hate it! Nevertheless, with the thousands and millions of fashion divas out their, designing new looks, and plus size shape wear, still the question to be asked.. What really works for my body?
There are three basic body shapes: pear, apple, and the hourglass figure. Most women are the apple and pear body types. On apple shape the upper body is larger than the lower body, when on pear shape is the opposite. An apple shaped women needs to draw attention to the lower body. That is why shoes are very important when dressing it adds length, to the body which gives a more even look . Flare/wide leg pants are also a must have in the wardrobe, which i have a million pairs, and love in any size group! A pear body type is the most common shape on women. You need to draw attention to your upper body, so a few clothing articles will definitely help you. Semi-fitted and form fitting tops are a must have best friends. Also straight skirts and maxi dresses look amazing on a pear shape body. heres a a little play by play of what to think about when your finding your perfect piece of clothing…

As well, there are a few fashion tips you need to remember always when getting dressed or renewing your wardrobe. Dressing in one tone or lovely soft colors will definitely help your image, however, be open to new colors, red, royal blues, and so forth. Colors like these and more so, will really bring life to any closet as well, depending on your natural skin tones, and really rock your look up! Knowing what to dress all the time, is a difficult task for everyone, no matter the size. however, for plus sized women is even harder, when it comes to finding that perfect outfit when shopping. When looking at the local clothing line towards plus size women, their is an industry cut standard, however we all don’t fit into those “size Standards” Which in my next post I will be setting forth the innovated ideas of custom made clothing, an slightly different approce to buying plus size clothing from rockabilly, business, and street wear.
Most women wear clothes that are too big for them. Why? Because they think this way they’ll hide flaws. Really, I recommend to step out of this trend of over size clothing, take your time and experiment with different items and even go for things that fit a little tighter, more colors and learn that its ok to flaunt what you have just like any other girl! Any woman, even a plus size one can learn how to dress and gain more confidence. The first step is to really look in the mirror to observe your body. You must not be ashamed, no matter your body type or your weight. Always trust yourself, trust your instinct. You’ll know what clothes are the best for you if you really look at yourself when you wear them.
