Just because your body is gorgeous, curvy, and plus-size doesn’t ever mean you have to sacrifice style and fashion to find things that fit. We get it—many retailers are still making oversized, boxy, or “overly mature” options, and others are outright refusing to make clothing over a size 12 (don’t even get us STARTED on the ridiculousness of that idea). That said, there are plenty of options for you - and we know where to find them. Our first and foremost style tip (for any body) is fit first, always. It doesn’t matter how on-trend a garment is - if it doesn’t fit (or can’t be tailored to), don’t buy it! It is much better to find something that DOES fit than create a problem for yourself. For your frame, proper fit means not too baggy and not too tight. Garments that cling and grab give away too much information (keep some surprises for the bedroom!). Alternatively, baggy and oversized clothes will not only make you look bigger than you are, they’ll also hide your shape! We want to make sure your figure is strategically highlighted, not completely hidden.
Wondering how to do that? Well, one thing to keep in mind is that there are lots of different shapes and forms among real-size women. Just because you’re curvy doesn’t mean you fall into the “apple” or “oval” category. Knowing how your weight is distributed can help you dress in a way that is proportional and flattering. Not sure what that means? Reach out to us and we’ll happily help you!
That being said, here's our first tip (with pictures!) to help you show off your gorgeous curves!
