If you’re finding it difficult to dress in the spring–ladies, you’re not alone! We help you prepare for the often unpredictable with 6 plus size fashion tips.
The plus-sized clothing market now makes up for a $21 billion industry. If you’re trying to find the perfect outfit for the spring season, you’re not alone, ladies! Equipped with the right tips, you can find clothes that are affordable and cute, just in time for the warmer weather.
Before we get into the fashion tips first a little disclaimer.
Over the past 20 years, the average woman’s size has increased to a 16. Another word for average is medium, yet typical size “medium” women’s clothes fit a size 4-6. If 16 is the new size average, then size 16 should be the new medium. Vibe Clothing Company believes it is time to embrace the woman who is a size 16 or more, not shame her by sending her to the one plus size rack hidden in a dark corner of a store. The time to rewrite the laws of fashion is here, and Vibe Clothing Company has the solution.
Vibe Clothing Company has generally eliminated terms like “curvy”, “petite”, or “plus size”, which insinuates that these body shapes are abnormal. Sizes should be about how the clothes fit rather than a label describing a woman’s body. Therefore you won’t find any of these terms used on our clothing store website. You’ll simply find women’s clothing that fits you regardless of your body size or shape.
The only reason we mention it here in this article is because it IS so commonly used by women searching for clothing that will fit them, we want to make it easier for you to discover us. Once you do you’ll know you have found your home!
With that said, keep reading to discover the six plus-size fashion tips you need to get started.
With these tips, you can transform your wardrobe with clothes that fit and flatter your beautiful figure. Start your search with these six tips!
1. Try on Different Sizes
First, it’s important to know that not everything will fit the same way. Sizes can vary between stores, fabrics, and styles. Don’t feel discouraged.
Instead, take the time to try on different sizes. If you can’t find what you’re looking for in the store, head online. There are plenty of options available to help you find the perfect fit. At Vibe Clothing Company it will be easy for you to find clothing that fits you regardless of your body size or shape because of our unique approach to sizing of women’s clothing which makes it much easier for you to buy your clothing online.
Finding clothes that fit and look good is the real secret for success and Vibe has reinvented the sizing system. Featuring both “tailored” and “traditional” sizes, Vibe clothes fit every woman from size 2 to a 22 or larger. This new sizing system not only helps to encompass a larger range of sizes, it also promotes body positivity and helps empower women to be proud of how they are made.
2. Know What Flatters Your Shape
As you use these plus-size fashion tips, make sure to consider your body shape.
Curved women aren’t all built the same way. With that in mind, it’s important to find clothes that suit your figure. For example, if you have an apple-shaped body type, you’ll want clothes that flatter your assets and create the illusion of a waistline.
For those who are comfortable with it, consider showing off your arms and legs or highlighting your cleavage. You can also wear vertical lines to help your silhouette look longer.
People spend about $209 per month on clothing. By finding clothes that fit your body shape, you can make sure every dollar is worth it.
3. Add a Wide Belt
A nice, wide belt can complete any outfit. Belts also enhance the smallest part of your body to help you look a little slimmer. You can use a belt to hide extra fabric or compress your tummy while letting your curves stand out.
While you’re shopping, keep a lookout for the perfect accessories.
4. Don’t Hide Those Curves
Super curvy women out there, don’t hide your curves! Instead, wear them proudly. Wearing oversized clothing can actually make you look bigger than you really are.
Meanwhile, super-clingy clothes can enlarge your shape.
Try to find the perfect balance.
5. Let the Color Pop
Add color to your spring wardrobe like this Shayna Kimono. As you use these plus-size fashion tips for spring, experiment with different fabrics and colors.
Don’t feel the need to go all-black. Finding your shapes can help you look slim if you choose clothes for your shape.
6. Above All Else…
Remain confident! Show off what you love about your body. When you feel confident, it will shine through.
