Best ways to dress for bigger women – look fabulous and thinner instantly

Updated on February 1, 2012

In America, many adult women are overweight. It is extremely difficult to lose weight after having a baby. Many women lost interest in fashion because of their bigger size. However, it is important to remember that you can still look great with lots of different outfits. Contrary to popular belief, most men are not into the model thin look. This hub is all about the best ways to dress for bigger women and look thin instantly without hard weight lost efforts. In my previous hub, I listed many important pointers for bigger women. This hub gives actual outfit ideas that you can use for causal, professional and romantic settings.

Causal settings – Even for causal settings, you should still look your best. Whatever the situation, you must wear heels to boost your height and elongate. A pair of leather stiletto heels are not the best for causal settings, opt for wedge sandals instead. Capri pants that are about three inches above the ankle are very flattering for bigger women because it shows off the skinniest part of your legs. For a top, empire waist is very flattering. Those that have medium width vertical stripes will slim you down instantly. For those that want to look even slimmer at family barbecue and other social outings can choose a short sleeve purple color cardigan for a very flattering look.

Professional settings – There are many flattering looks for a bigger woman in the professional setting. It is very important to have two things, minimizer bra and body shaper. These two things will take the weight away from you and make you look sharper instantly. For the bust, bigger is not always better and a minimizer bra gives you a more refined look. A body shaper will also instantly make you look at least ten or fifteen pounds thinner. In the office, you should go for a black fitted blazer, off white or purple shirt and a pencil skirt for a very sharp and professional look. It is important to wear thick heels because it gives you a major boost in height in addition to keeping your comfortable all day. When you look taller, you will look thinner as well. For those that do not want to wear skirt to the office, you can opt for pants instead. Even though black is one of the most flattering colors for a bigger girl, you don't have to opt for all black outfit. Let's add some color into the outfit to make it more interesting. A wrap top is very flattering for a bigger woman. You can choose a turquoise or purple wrap top that has detailing that draw the eyes up to your face. Complete the look with a pair of boot cut slacks and heels for a great look.

Romantic dates – When it comes to dates and romantic outings, you should try your very best to look great. Bigger women have tons of great looks just like everyone else. To impress the opposite sex, women should show off our feminine side with a very flattering dress. A great empire waist dress is very cute on a bigger woman because it emphasizes that you have a small waist. The length should hit at the knee. When you dress like that, it will show off your skinniest part and make you look feminine yet sharp. Another kind of dress you can choose is one with details near the neck. It will draw other people's attention to your face instead of your body. After all, you want your date to notice your beautiful eyes and smile. For romantic events, you want to look awesome as well. Don't forget your minimizer bra and body shaper. It will give you that extra little edge to make him think you are curvy and hot. If you are self conscious about your arms, you can go for a little cropped short sleeve top that hides the arms.

      There's plenty of great clothes out there that flatter the bigger woman these days. My best tip is to ensure you get the right size. Forcing yourself into clothes that are too small makes you look worse than wearing something great in the right size.

      Really positive hub, voted up.
