A Curvy Girl dressing guide for mid season

curvy girl dressing guideI have put together this pictorial curvy girl dressing guide for mid-season because I feel sad when some of you write to tell me “I can not wear this or that style because I am a plus size”.   So what? How would you know if you do not try a different style than you normally wear.

Are you stuck in a vicious circle of t-shirt and leggings? curvy girl dressing guidePlaids shirts and jeans? curvy girl dressing guideWhich are both fine but… don't you wish you can change once in a while?

Did you know that style is 70% attitude and 30% fit?curvy girl dressing guide curvy girl dressing guide

The saying goes “a picture tells a thousand words” Let us test this saying that is been around since early last century.  I want you to have a look at the woman in this photos, it took me many hours to gather these photos across many cities, Sydney, Singapore, London, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Milan, Cairo, Berlin, Johannesburg, and Kiev.  A warm thank you to all the contributors.

I will be a little blunt here so if you are easily offended like so many this days, please turn the page and walk away.  English is my second language and I have a hard time with political correctness.  To be politically correct in a foreign language requires a level of English I am incapable of.

So what's under your skirt?

Foundation is important in every bit of life, all human relationships and in architecture requires a solid foundation.  So what's with the floppy old underwear and wrong bra? Are you really that comfortable in it?  Both add years and pounds to your silhouette. curvy girl dressing guide Did you know that if you feel comfortable and sexy in your underwear it will show in your dress?  Don't believe me? Take a look at this girls. curvy girl dressing guidecurvy girl dressing guidecurvy girl dressing guidecurvy girl dressing guidecurvy girl dressing guide

I have to ask, if you have a favourite outfit and want to be featured in this curvy girl dressing guide please send me a photo on landscape mode and natural light to mayra@so-sew-easy.com and I will be happy to add you.

In order to understand style would look the best on you please have a look at this guide first, the key is to know what type of body shape you have.

Find your waist

We all have it, the smaller part on your torso no matter where it is.  Whether is one inch above your belly button or under your breasts.  Place a pretty accessory there to create an hourglass figure. curvy girl dressing guide

Don' be afraid of White or Light Colours

Yes it is true that black slims down, but not always is your best friend.  If you are blond and over 40 black will age you especially if you are not wearing makeup.  White and light colours will bring up your best features and soften your face.

Reds, orange, purple, and any colour derived from them make people find you more attractive.curvy girl dressing guide curvy girl dressing guide curvy girl dressing guide curvy girl dressing guide curvy girl dressing guidecurvy girl dressing guidecurvy girl dressing guidecurvy girl dressing guidecurvy girl dressing guidecurvy girl dressing guide

Adopt stripes and prints

These girls are breaking the conventional wisdom that bold prints and stripes will make you look wider. But, do they look good?

Invest in a good pair of jeans

There are a plethora of styles out there. There is one with your name on it. I promise. curvy girl dressing guidecurvy girl dressing guide

Show more skin. Covering is not always the best way to go. Take a look at the same girl in different outfits and decide which outfit makes her look smaller. curvy girl dressing guidecurvy girl dressing guidecurvy girl dressing guide

    Love you article on curvy girl designs and ideas. It is so refreshing to see real people (not twigs) wearing nice looking, good fitting clothes. I especially like your comment on confidence.

  5. Deanna says:

    Finally…..great real world advice I can use…..Woke me up to the fact that I just throw on same outfits day after day because I thought it didn’t matter…..why bother because I don’t have that “perfect” body anymore…..and nothing will look good anyway…..Seeing real plus size models in the article drove the point home that style, a good fit, and positive attitude is a game changer…..ALL the models were beautiful…..By the end of the article, not only was my brain brimming with ideas to try…..but most importantly also inspired me to reexamine how I view myself Thanks!

  6. Kathy says:

    Thank you for using real plus size women for the fashion. I get so frustrated when plus size fashion is advertised on thin models.
