A Curvy Girl dressing guide for mid season

curvy girl dressing guide

I 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? Plaids shirts and jeans? Which 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?

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.  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.

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. 

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.

    I would like to know what your size range. For larger sized ladies please. Can you tell me where to find it on your site?
    Thank you.

      Hi Liz, I normally, publish along with my patterns the sizes or measurements that can use the pattern because I believe people should dress by body shape rather than by size. I have not gotten around to making an average sizing table. I think I would need to make 4 or 5 to include all the patterns I have shared free on this site.

    Thanks for this post! I am plus and will attest that no matter your size, confidence is the essential factor in pulling off any look. Love yourself enough to try new looks if you are stuck in a rut. No, I am not always dressed to the “nines”, but I am confident in who I am and know that my body is not me, simply a housing for me, the soul inside. That said, bodies can be fund to decorate …or not as the mood strikes you.
