Best fashion hacks from a plus-size boutique
Looking for more ways to take your fashion to the next level but can’t find tips that apply to your body size? It can be a frustrating experience scrolling through blog after blog, seeing nothing you can use and as a result, feeling less confident about the way you look.
But there’s good news. You can use some of these plus-size fashion hacks to help yourself feel good about how you look and feel way more comfortable throughout the day.
1. Wear a body-suit to stop your top from riding up
There’s nothing worse than having to obsessively keep pulling down your top all day. You don’t feel comfortable bending certain ways, and it seems like no matter what you do, your top just keeps riding up. Wearing a body-suit is the ultimate plus-size fashion hack.
2. Define your waist to accentuate your curves
I’ve seen a lot of bad fashion advice telling plus-size women to hide their curves. But you would be surprised how big a difference defining your waist can make. It helps accentuate your curves, giving you more of an hourglass figure.
3. Shop at plus-size boutiques to find the best clothes
You want to wear clothes consciously designed for your body, not scaled up as an afterthought. By shopping at a plus-size boutique, you benefit from a wider selection, better fitting clothes, and great-looking outfits. Here, you won’t need to settle for what a store has and you get way more creative freedom.
4. Know your measurements and buy clothes that fit
Here are the measurements you need to know; neck and bust, waist and hips, front and back waist length, arm length, and shoulder width. Knowing these measurements will save you a lot of time and trouble, especially when you shop online.
5. Stretchy materials are more flattering for tight areas
Stretchy materials are more comfortable, flattering on a plus-sized woman, and adjust as your body changes. When you wear stiff material over tight-fitting areas, it can create unnatural bends that won’t feel good and won’t look right.
6. Stop chafing with thigh bands or cotton shorts
Chafing happens when there’s a lot of skin-on-skin friction. Not only is it uncomfortable, but it can even lead to skin rashes that can turn into bigger problems. Wearing thigh bands or cotton shorts is an easy fix that puts a cloth barrier between your legs.
7. Wear wide-fitting shoes to help with swelling
Do your feet swell in the heat or after you’ve been walking around more than usual? Then you should invest in wide-fitting shoes. They put less pressure on your feet, are more comfortable to walk around in, and can handle light swelling on the days you need it the most.
