Plus Sized Fashion Tips to Help You Look Slim and Feel Beautiful
Be bold and beautiful with your color choices
For awhile, I was a plus sized woman and one thing that I found out was that wearing black did not make me look slimmer. Neither did baggy, over sized clothes. The only thing that I felt wearing big sweatshirts was frumpy and outdated. It was easy to fall into a fashion frump being over weight. And, even as the weight came off, I didn't like the way I looked because I was dressing wrong for my body type and personality.
What I found was that wearing bright colors, even bold reds and lighter pastels such as pinks was just right for making me feel good about my body's ever changing shape.
And, though the color did not cover up my weight issues, it helped me have confidence to get out in public and socialize with friends. Being bold and beautiful in bright clothes made me feel like myself again, so I didn't feel like a recluse. The bright colors helped me shine and radiate confidence. And, the more I liked how I looked, the more I was able to do both in public and in my personal life.
Clothes don't make a woman look thin, weight loss does and that takes time. Before then, you need to nurture your confidence by wearing bright happy colors that make you feel bold and beautiful, not clothes that fool the eye.

Looking and feeling beautiful whatever your size
No need to postpone the happy moments of your life (wedding, parties, reunions, relationships), until you lose weight.
Be happy with your current weight and look, even as you are living a healthy lifestyle and trying to lose weight.
That way you will feel just as beautiful when you reach your goal as you did when you started it.
Just think about the things that make you beautiful. Your eyes! Your smile? Voluptuous figure? That gorgeous laugh. Focus on the sparkly parts of your personality and the things you like most about your body and accentuate those with fashion, make up and accessories and you will radiate beauty, whatever your size.
