鈥淗onestly, at the end of the day, what I want women to know is that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. And that should not define who you are.鈥

鈥 Ashley Graham


One of the highest paid supermodels of today, Ashley Graham, more widely known as the 鈥減lus size model鈥 struggled with her size and outfits a few years back. But now, having made it to the top 10 highest paid supermodels of the world, and having been on the cover of Sports Illustrated, she knows that her body size was never an issue.


As rightly said by the supermodel herself, beauty does come in all shapes and sizes and there really is no such thing as a plus size or a zero size because they are all just sizes. Women shouldn鈥檛 beat themselves up for being a particular size, or for not being able to carry out what another woman can.


Let鈥檚 face it, no woman is a perfect 10; every single one of us has a lot flaws. But we also have some great qualities in terms of our body. The key to pull off any look for any body size or shape is to hide the parts that are unflattering and flaunt the good parts.


Since it鈥檚 always the so-called 鈥減lus size women鈥 that find themselves being bound by several factors in fashion, here is the definitive guide on how to make any look work for you.

Choose silhouettes as per your shape

Regardless of what size you are, if you choose silhouettes that flatter your body shape, then you鈥檝e pretty much done half the work. For example, if you鈥檙e a pear shape, then your best pick would be A-line dresses and skirts. On the other hand, if you鈥檙e an hourglass shape then you can go for pencil dresses and skirts. If you鈥檙e a petite person then mini dresses can be your go-to.

Pick fabrics with a defined structure

Flimsy fabrics can hug your body in all the wrong places and make your outfit looks unflattering on you. The key is to go for fabrics with a more defined structure that not only hide the parts that you want to hide, but also accentuate those parts that are your assets. Cottons, linens and blends are always great options.

Wear the right fit

One of the biggest misconceptions about plus size clothing is that baggy outfits are for big women. It is the opposite that is true! Baggy clothes only add more bulk to your body and make you look much larger than you are. Instead, what you should be doing is to wear clothes that follow your curves. This does not mean clingy outfits; the ones that fit just right are perfect.

Wear the right undergarments

Inner garments are like the foundation for your garments. It is extremely important to wear the right kind of inners according to the outfits. For example, you can鈥檛 possibly wear a fancy razor back bra for a low back dress. Similarly, you need a strapless bra for an off-the-shoulder top and a seamless bra for a T-shirt. And don鈥檛 forget to get the undergarments in the right fit as well.

Accessorize all the way

Do not be afraid to wear accessories. Statement necklaces or earrings, pair them with minimalist outfits for a contrasting effect. And don鈥檛 forget, belts are your best friend. They help accentuate your curves and also hide that belly pooch, if it鈥檚 big enough belt.


Apart from all these, regardless of convention, don鈥檛 be afraid to play around with prints either. There are no rules when it comes to prints for different sizes. Probably the only thing you might have to follow is a general concept of pairing prints and colours.

Rest assured, if you follow these tips, you will be well on your way to become the next trendsetter.
