A Fashion Guide: Basic Rules to Follow For Plus Sized Women

Who says that one has to be a size zero to look incredible? When looking at the pages of most fashion magazines, one may come away with the impression that beauty comes in only one size: tiny. However, that assumption is false. Women of all shapes and sizes can look fabulous and sexy by dressing to focus on their good attributes.

Plus-sized women often are not taught any guidelines about looking their best. Common fashion advice is geared toward the small to average sized body type. However, by sticking to several guidelines, the plus-sized woman can look and feel confident, sexy and gorgeous.

Accentuate the Positive

A fashion stylist will often say that plus-sized women need to know how to emphasize their best attributes and downplay their figure faults. A plus-sized woman should learn to look in the mirror and not beat herself up over her size. Every woman, whether she is a size four or size 14, will have figure faults, so plus-sized women should learn to change their mindsets regarding attractiveness. Women do not have to be perfectly proportioned to look lovely.

Plus-sized women do have some advantages over super slim ladies. Many times, these women have feminine, sexy curves that some other women can only achieve by using padded undergarments. If a woman has generous cleavage, a slender waist or sexy legs, she should accentuate those body parts, even if the rest of her body is not the ideal.
