Plus Size Fashion Blouses and Tops

Always look for a style that compliments your plus size bust line.

  • Try on blouses and tops with a proper fitting bra, so you can look in the mirror and see your body shape as others will see.
  • Avoid clingy fabrics that draw attention to the bust, unless layering under a wrap, sweater or jacket.  A tight knit or clingy top may make you look miss-proportioned.
  • Avoid tops with little or no straps. Look for straps that are wider to make your shoulders and chest appear smaller.
  • Look for tops with darts to fit neatly around your bust without extra gapping fabric.
  • Also tie or scarf accents on your blouse draws the eye away from your plus size bust line.
  • Plus Size Career Jackets and Sweaters

 Look for sweaters with shape. A boxy sweater can make you appear larger.  And, be very careful with a cable knit pull over sweater.  Cables can make a busty body shape look much larger.

 A great alternative is a soft wrap.  A wrap tied at the waist line, or cinched with a thin belt will add definition to your smaller waist.

 Make sure jackets fit properly around the bust and taper in to add waist for definition.  A fitted jacket on a plus size shape accentuates the waist and will gives you a polished well-dressed appearance.  You may need to have your plus size clothes altered to obtain the perfect look for you.  Yes, this may cost extra, but the finished look is more than worth it.  Proof will be in the compliments you receive.

 Trendy Plus Size Skirts

 Stick with an A-line skirt or a pencil skirt if you have a smaller waist than hips to show the curves.  However, if you have a fuller busty body shape, a pencil skirt may make you look top heavy, so this is a look you should try on before buying the straighter skirt.

To elongate your plus body torso tuck in a blouse or top with a skirt that has a slightly lower waistline.  This will make your top half look more proportioned to your full body figure.  It will also give you an appearance of being taller.  This is also a good rule of thumb for a petite plus.

Avoid the miniskirt as it detracts from the bustline making you look miss-proportioned.

 Plus Size Fashion Trousers

Wide legged trousers provide the perfect body shape balance. The wide legs in plus size fashions are popular as they balance the bottom half of your body shape with the busty top half.  However, if wide-legged pants are not for you try straight legged jeans.  Straight legged pants will also balance out your plus size.

Avoid skinny jeans, leggings or tapered. They will make you appear very top heavy.

 Dresses For Plus – Picking the perfect style for that out and about evening.

Look for a structured top with an A-line skirt to balance your plus size body and make you look well-proportioned.

For an evening look, a fitted dress with a lower neckline will give you the wow factor.  However, this plus style dress or gown will more than likely need to be altered, because most plus size women wear different size tops and bottoms.

As with the tops try the wrap dress.  This will give your body shape a softer look and still show off your curves.

Remember that strapless or spaghetti straps are not supportive and can make your bust line sag.  Plus, if you have to worry about keeping the top of your strapless dress from sliding and shifting, it can take away from enjoying yourself, and make you look and feel self-conscious.

Stay away from miniskirts and tight fitting clingy material.  These can make your plus size body look out of proportion and unattractive.

 Accessories

One of the best tricks in dressing in the perfect plus fashion is accessories.  Avoid big pieces of jewelry at the neckline and chokers as they will compete with your bust.  Slim chains of strands of beads are the way to go.  To bring attention to your waist, a thin belt works great, but do not wear wide belts as they tend to make your plus size shape look square.    To bring attention to your waist, a thin belt or belt scarf works great, but do not wear wide belts as they tend to make your plus size shape look square and boxy.  If you are carrying a purse, stick with medium to larger size to balance out your plus size shape.

 Happy dressing.
