Plus size fashion choices

In the past, curvy women often struggled to find fashionable garments that fitted them and made the best of their assets. But in recent years, women’s plus size clothing has become increasingly stylish and more available.

Most high-street stores now stock a wide range of larger sizes, as well as exclusive ranges specially designed to make the most of your shape. This means that there's never been a better time to update your look!

The key to dressing well is finding clothes that you feel confident and comfortable in, as well as highlighting your best features. If you have an hourglass figure, don't drape that waist in excess material; similarly, if you've got pins to die for, pull on a skirt or some trendy shorts that will show them off.

First, however, you must go back to basics. 

Make sure you always have underwear that fits and flatters you a nice plus size corset from plus size lingerie will have you feeling confident in yourself. Bras should be supportive and briefs should not dig or nip. For added confidence, shapewear can create an even more flattering silhouette.

While many larger women immediately choose loose tops, it is often far more effective to select structured garments, which work with your figure and don't hide it. V-neck garments are particularly fetching, as they elongate your body and allow you to experiment with colour and prints.

Layering is an excellent way to keep warm in winter, without drowning your body in heavy materials. A bold colour vest with a plain shirt, along with a long-line jersey cardigan, tied at the waist with a statement belt, is a wonderful winter warmer.

As for trousers and jeans, it's imperative that they fit properly – which may mean a visit to a tailor, but the result will be more than worth it.

Whatever your fashion tastes, remember that plus size clothing is just as stylish as any other. So don't hide your shape, flaunt it!
