Why do they insult like that. Stargrrl, I am so glad you found it helpful. Thanks for the comment, and sorry for the long delay in answering. PSP, you are so right. The wrap dress, especially, is so flattering and attractive on any woman. Thanks for the great comment! Maddie, thank you so much.

I am a curvy lady, and I find that empire waists are incredibly flattering, so I often go for what I know, but wrap dresses are a great wardrobe staple, too!

Thanks once again and keep up! Amar, thanks for your comment. I do understand that not everyone has a waist but I meant to suggest is that the dress should create a silhouette that suggests a waist, often right below the bustline.
That made me laugh! I don't think you should dare to wear a dress, no matter how much anyone begs. Thanks for the comment and stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend! Hi my friend, sorry even if you dare me I'm not wearing a dress. I do so agree that a dress helps you feel feminine, and that there is no reason for a plus size woman to feel afraid of them, but we'll have to agree to disagree on cinching in the waist.
Speaking as someone who hasn't had a waist since , trying to pull it in just doesn't work for me, but you are right, i'st easy to get inspiration from the past. The key to a flattering garment comes down to fit, not color, says celebrity stylist Susan Moses. On camera, wearing white can make you appear bigger.
When shopping for white clothing—Moses is a fan of white jeans and white ruched dresses in particular—avoid flimsy fabrics, which will highlight any bumps. Start with small, vibrant details—shoes, jewelry, or bags—before trying bigger pieces. Monochrome can indeed work wonders by creating one long, lean, continual line; but simply throwing on random pieces in the same shade can also make you look sloppy.
The hue also matters: Look for stripes that angle inward to help slim your waistline. Thinner stripes tend to make you look more svelte than thick ones do, and a dark background with lighter-colored stripes is far superior to the other way around. If it floats your boat, by all means go for it. The trick is to adapt a trend in a way that works for your shape. Dying to wear a crop top? Want to give color-blocking a go?
