For plus sized girls, it’s not always easy to find a perfect dress. Sometimes it feels like pretty dresses don’t come any larger than a size two! Here are some tips to help you choose the right plus size dress for you.

  • Dark colors like black and navy can make you appear slimmer. You can add color to a black dress by wearing colorful shoes or carrying a brightly colored bag. You can also buy a dress that has a colorful or shiny belt, or pair a belt with it.
  • Other dresses with simple colors, besides black, may also flatter your shape. It’s a matter of searching for the best color for your shape and size.
  • Don’t buy a dress made from a stretchy nylon-like fabric. This type of dress will more than likely cling in all of the wrong places.
  • Looking good in a dress can be as easy as keeping your shoulders back, and maintaining good posture.
  • Vertical stripes elongate a body, while horizontal stripes make the body appear wider.
  • Keep prints and designs subtle, unless you find a loud print that flatters your shape.
  • Use shapers to smooth out your shape.
  • Most importantly, buy clothes that fit correctly, and look good on you!

Next time you’re shopping for a dress don’t rush and buy the first one that fits. Stop, look in the mirror, and think about these helpful tips.
