5 Typical Style Mistakes of Plus-Size Girls

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.

How to Look Slimmer

UK Fashion Blogger Picture


I have added some weight in the last couple of weeks, and I am trying very hard to shake off. I don’t really mind the extra weight to be honest, my main focus is to look and feel very fit. But adding the extra weight has opened my eyes to some issues many women will be dealing with it on a day-to-day basis. Styling a new size 12 body can be a pain when all your outfits are in a size 10. Trust me I know, I have been there and done that, and I know first hand how that can also play on your body confidence, if you are not happy with the extra pounds added.

If your goal is to look slimmer while you work on your body, here are 6 tips for you:


Wear the right size

Wearing a size too small happens when we are in denial; holding on to our old body. If none of your clothes fit, get a few clothes that fit properly, while you work on your body, if that is what you are after. Squeezing your body in clothes that do not fit will only make you appear bigger.


Make sure you walk tall

Make sure you walk tall. Walk with your back straight and your head held up high. This is the simplest way to appear slimmer. This trick will elongate your body, making you look a size slimmer.

Choose your pieces carefully

Opt for lightweight fabrics such as cashmere, cotton, that will skim your curves, rather than stick on them. You should avoid lycra pieces as much as possible.


Go for darker colours

Dark colours help make us appear slimmer but you don’t have to wear all black. Navy blue, brown and dark grey all have the same slimming effect.



Wrapping your hair in a ponytail will instantly make anyone look slimmer. A ponytail gives the illusion of a slimmer face and a longer neck.



Heels have the power to make us look slimmer. I know many women struggle with walking in heels but once you find a comfortable pair, your style game will be out of this world! Heels paired with skinny jeans will make your legs appear longer and slimmer.
