Shopping Tips for Plus-Sized Women

Any woman who has stepped into a clothing store, only to find out that the amazing dress on sale does not come in her size knows how tricky shopping can be. If you’re a plus-sized woman (usually size 14 and up) and you’ve faced difficulty finding great-fitting clothes in the past, here’s a list of must-have items and shopping tips for autumn. Although you may not be a size zero, you can still enjoy this season’s latest styles and look fabulous at the same time.

  1. Long, flowing wrap cardigans are a great look for the fall and are sure to flatter a curvy figure. Slimming, versatile, and form-flattering, the humble cardigan has come a long way in recent years. Perfect for both casual days and the office, this is one item you’ll definitely want.

  2. A girl can’t go wrong with classic black leggings, which actually look great on plus-sized women if worn correctly. Try wearing your leggings with a pair of sleek boots, a tunic top, and a boyfriend cardigan.

  3. Don’t be afraid of a pop of colour! Often, larger ladies are intimidated of bright shades and prefer to go the safe route by sticking to black. While darker colours are slimming, a pop of red, burgundy, or blue will make your outfit come to life.

  4. Plus-size skinny jeans and jeggings are available at a variety of specialty boutiques in a variety of cuts and sizes.If you happen to be curvy, you can still rock trendy denim in a dark wash, with a slightly oversized blazer, empire-waist blouse, and heels. Go for a great-fitting indigo or black pair of jeans, and avoid details such as acid wash, fading, or whiskering, which will only highlight problem areas.

  5. Wide waist-cinching belts help to emphasize curves while offering a slim silhouette at the same time. Try a belt like this over a charcoal grey pencil skirt, tights, and button-down blouse for an elegant 1940’s look.

  6. Lastly, remember to wear mainstream trends with confidence! Take inspiration from curvaceous and fashionable celebrities such as America Ferrera, Beth Ditto, Christina Hendricks, and plus-sized model Crystal Renn
