Plus sizes are coming back now. An average lady’s size is now US size 10 which used to be like US size 6 or US size 8 before.  A lot of plus size women always shy out their curves making themselves believe they don’t look good in one dress or the other.  I was doing my daily reads and I came accross this post on plus size women. Below are what to consider when buying or shopping for clothes.

DO visit the petite or tall sections, depending on your height. If you’re under 5’3, there’s a great reason to suspect you should do all of your shopping in the petite section of stores

DO visit specialty stores like Lane Bryant for your clothing needs and to learn what to look for in terms of fashion trends.

DO dress to accentuate your best features. While some plus size ladies simply want to disguise their entire body or hide under a shapeless frock, it’s important you play up your best features

DO look for clothing that’s tailored to fit. Instead of hiding your body under a dress with absolutely no shape, be daring and choose a dress with darting and style

DON’T wear clothing that hugs or clings to your body. The trick to finding clothing that fits is to select pieces that skim your body, but don’t hug your body

DON’T wear clothing and fabrics with teeny tiny patterns. Whether you are drawn to a tiny printed shirt or skirt, stay away!
