Fashion + Style | How To Use Quality Fashion To Create A Great Body Shape


fashionandstyle_logo

Shopping for the perfect outfit can be really hard when your body isn’t a standard size and shape. Most of us have areas of our bodies that we’re less than happy with. But when it starts to get in the way of our fashion choices, it can be difficult to pick out good outfits. Fortunately, there are excellent fashion retailers out there for every size. It doesn’t matter whether you’re petite or plus-size.

Start by figuring out your body shape on http://www.bodyshapecalculator.co.uk. Whatever size you are, your shape should determine the types of clothes that will most suit you. After all, a fuller figure could be a pear shape or an apple shape. And a shorter woman can still be voluptuous. If you have a fuller chest, then look for clothing that offers the extra space. It all starts with the underwear.

Whether you are a fan of control underwear or not, there’s no denying the beautiful body shapes it can help create. One of the biggest mistakes for larger chested girls is trying to fit into a small bra. This will create bulges and ‘over-spills’ that are not attractive. Embrace your size and pick underwear to fit. Control pants help contour your tummy and bottom. Use them to create the silhouette you want.

Many plus-size girls feel trapped in skirts if they have heavier thighs. But you can buy beautiful jeans and trousers at online stores like http://www.off-size.com/index.php/women-s-clothing/jeans.html that should look good whatever size you are. Look to balance your hips with your shoulders. This will create a slimming effect for your waist. Elongating the waist when you are shorter can be tricky. Try wider waistbands and belts to help create the right effect when you wear trousers or jeans.

If you are particularly petite, it can be just as tricky to find fashion to suit your shape. Use flowing fabrics to create a larger silhouette. Heels can bring up your height, and shaped underwear can help create the curves you are looking for. Dresses look very glamorous on smaller frames. Trousers should be looser fitting styles to look more shapely. Avoid the skinny fit if you are particularly slender.

Some girls with a pear shape body struggle to find figure hugging dresses. This is because the thighs require a larger size than the top half. Choose cammies and fitted blouses with an A-line skirt instead for a flattering style. A Wonderbra may not help you fill the back and shoulders of a larger dress, leaving it to sag. Longer skirts that finish around the shin area are often the most flattering length, whatever the style.

Dressing for your body shape is the key to looking wonderful in every outfit. Most of us can create a gorgeous silhouette just by picking the right underwear underneath our clothes. We’re all different, but some of the high street retailers fail to provide enough sizes to suit everybody. Look to online or specialist stores to find your next quality outfit. Remember, your body is fine as it is – make the fashion work for you!
