About Plus Size Clothing
Plus size clothes refer to anything above the standard sizing clothing range. Whether you’re long and lanky or have a curvier figure, plus size clothes can accommodate your needs. Standard sizes usually stop at 14, so sizes 16 and up are considered plus size. While some designs use the same ratio cuts as standard sizes, the best-fitting clothes are designed for specific body shapes. In addition to buying to fit across the body, length can also be an issue. Some plus size clothing comes in short or tall lengths to account for differences in heights. Avoid buying too big; clothes for bigger women don’t have to be baggy. However, clothes that are too small may cause puckering in odd places and discomfort. Because many styles today are designed to accentuate your bust line or shapely hips to flatter your best features, buying the right size has never been so important. When picking out plus size clothes, do a bit of magazine and online research to know which patterns and colors that complement your shape. Find out which body types look best in which cuts. For example, vertical lines give the illusion of length; this is helpful for women who want to appear taller. A nice pair of heels can further the illusion, but like your clothes, make sure they are comfortable. No matter what your shape is, solid and neutral-colored tops and bottoms should be wardrobe staples; they look good and are easy to match with colorful accessories.
