It’s possible to be stylish no matter what your size is. Trendy plus-size women keep proving it constantly. There are no bad bodies, there are poorly chosen clothes. Curvy women are awesome, but not all of them can pick the right clothes to emphasize their strong points and hide what they want to hide. Plus-size women have their special charm that makes them splendid. DatingBrides is a living proof. In order not to lose this charm, it’s necessary to listen to expert advice and avoid common style mistakes. So, here is what curvy girls do wrong.
Thinking that only oversize dresses suit them
Indeed, shapeless dresses only make you appear even larger. Once you put on a baggy tunic, you add an extra size to your figure. It’s sad but true. The thing is that shapeless clothes such as lightweight blouses and dresses add looseness to your look. Unfortunately, curvy girls have to be more careful with their outfits. Try to choose those clothes that will expose thin parts of your body. For example, wear a long-sleeved shirt that will emphasize the delicate wrist and put an elegant bracelet on it.
Ignoring the correcting underwear
There is nothing shameful in wearing slimming pants or high-waist shorts on a daily basis. Wearing it on a special occasion is even a must. It smoothes the curves, makes your silhouette more graceful and boosts your confidence.
Thinking they look slenderer in black
Fashion experts advise you to get rid of this popular stereotype. Black really works if the shape and texture are properly chosen. Buying only black and brown clothes hoping that will make you appear S-size is a bizarre idea, indeed. Choose new look style dresses (often worn by Adele) to accentuate your feminine figure.
Hoping for the belt to do a miracle
You must have read somewhere or heard that to get an hourglass figure, you should bind the thinnest part of your waist with a belt. But if the waist is not that thin, this effect will be hardly achieved. Choose in favor of straight dresses and high heels. It will look much more attractive, and, in addition, you will not have any problems with breathing.
Not paying attention to makeup and hairstyle
Neglecting the state of skin and hair, any girl, no matter whether she is slim or plus-size, consciously spoils her image. The wrong makeup and poor or no hairstyle make a girl look sloppy. This opinion is connected with the stereotype about plus-size women according to which they just gave up on themselves. Very often, plumpness is associated with greasy hair and frumpy clothes. But you should do your best to prove this stereotype wrong.
Fashion Tips for Curvy Girls
Keep it simple. When you go to a shopping mall to buy some new clothes, make minimalism your friend. Choosing shoes, the best option is the pointed ones. The optimal height of the heels should be 5-7 cm. It will visually stretch your silhouette and make your legs even more beautiful.
Choose the right length. Knee length dresses and skirts are perfect for plus-size girls. The best length for blouses, shirts, and tops is about 5 cm from the broadest hip line.
Choose the right prints. The right choice will be small prints or vertical stripes. The vertical edging and a row of buttons have a similar slimming effect. Avoid big asymmetrical prints that visually add an extra size.

I am a 14-16 depending on where I shop and brand too. All your tips are correct. The other one to add is wear a longer style costume jewellery and not short around the breast. I read that somewhere recently on www. Don’t buy clothes that are to tight and not the right size either. Fortunately colour is not a problem for me. I only do black for funerals if it is
Great tips. Buying the right size is the right way to go.

I’m very slim, I’d actually love a few more curves, but my best friend is very curvy and she has made these mistakes as we have grown up! I’m always telling her to wear something more fitted as drowning herself in over sized clothes make her look bigger!
Yea oversized clothes definitely make a body shape look bigger.
