How Fat Women Can Dress
Being overweight doesnot mean you cannot look fabulous! Learn how to accentuate your positive features and feel more confident with what you are wearing.
1. Make use of color and pattern. Try darker colors and smaller patterns.
Colors, cut and patterns you wear can draw people's eye toward or away from your figure. Here are some basics:
The tried and true rule is that black is generally very slimming and falttering. Sticking with darker colors are a safe bet because brighter colors draw attention to your body and are less effective at camouflaging certain trouble areas.
Big patterns will make you look bigger, while small patterns can make you look smaller.
2. Wear well-fitted undergarments
It is true that your underclothes are the foundation of your look - it's hard to look good when you're wearing flimsy underwear that doesn't support you sufficiently.
Wear a bra that is the right size. A well-fitting bra can have a minimizing effect for women who feel they are too top-heavy.
To lose a bit of girth around your hips and thighs, wear low-legged, high-waisted underwear in a firm, supportive cotton.
3. Find clothes that will flatter your bottom half, especially tailored or A-line skirts.
4. Dress to flatter your upper half.
Depending on your body type, this could be the difficult or easy part. If you tend to carry your weight around your stomach and shoulders ( or you're "apple-shaped"), these tips can help:
Skip spaghetti-strap or halter tops. You'll want your shirt to cover your bra straps, and they might be wide.
Wear full-length cardigans and jackets - don't opt for cropped lengths.
5. Last but the most import, Be confident in what you wear.
