Trendy Plus Size Outfits
It can be tricky pulling off the latest fashion trends if your figure is fuller than the UK average of 14. Magazines showing stick thin models effortlessly showing off designer trends can be disheartening to say the least. But with some thought and great tips it can be done and the curvier figure can look amazing.
Don't forget, the right bra can really give you back your waist so make sure you go and get properly fitted. I was wearing the wrong size bra for years it turns out!
Creating detail at the top of your outfit will balance your body out and wide neck lines are very flattering for the fuller figure as they draw an out and up line. Avoid styles that may reduce the width of your shoulders (or at least the appearance)
If you are pear shaped or larger around the bottom try to avoid anything with large pockets at the back as this will emphasis it!
I speak from experience here as I had what I thought were a gorgeous pair of jeans with two zipped pockets on the bum but after seeing my back side in photos I realised the error of my ways!
