How to Dress When You’re Large

February 3rd, 2010

If you’re a big-boned woman who likes fashion, you might find your options to be severely limited in the clothing arena.  The fashion industry seriously neglects plus-sized women and what clothes are available are often not that trendy nor do they have the proper structure and support.  Therefore, if you’re in this situation, what are you to do?  Here are a few suggestions to help you out.

As the saying goes, if you can’t beat them, join them.  You can join the skinny elite by squeezing into the clothes you want to wear.  However, you’ll need some help because the last thing you want to do is look like a muffin top – that is, have the squeeze of the clothes be so tight all your fat rolls spill over.  What you need to do is wear some sort of body control underwear to evenly distribute the fat and bulges.  Slimming underwear for women truly does work and you can look a few sizes smaller for your efforts.

Another trick you can try to get the wardrobe you deserve is to go to a tailor for alterations.  You can do this one of two ways.  You can either let out the seams of a smaller piece of clothing or you can take a larger item and take it in.  Be warned though.  It is very hard to rework the smaller items so make sure that it is worth the trouble.  However, if you are handy with a sewing machine, you can bypass the tailor all together and try your own luck with alterations.  If you are really talented, you might design fashionable clothing for plus-sized women yourself.  Goodness knows there is a market for it.

So if you are a big woman who loves fashion, there are some alternatives for you to get your clothing fix.  After all, everyone deserves to look good and feel confident about themselves.
