Womens Plus Size Clothing Guide

By Claire Calkin

When someone decides to select and buy their clothes online they are opening up the doors to a wide world of choices that include the latest fashions, hard to find pieces and discounted rates. Avoid the rush and discomfort of shopping at a mall by shopping at home and spend more time relaxing with family and friends. If you have a formal engagement coming up, don't hit the shops and elbow your way to the perfect top in your size. Choose online for the latest styles and colors with a large stockpile of your favourite size.

Finding clothes to it your body perfectly can be quite daunting. There are so many things to consider that includes fabrics, colors, styles, cuts and contouring. It can be quite easy to finding a perfect outfit by sticking to some simple rules. Don't get caught out by what your friends think when you are trying clothes on, they may think they are doing good but they won't be the one spending vast amounts on clothes that may only be worn once. Trust your own instinct and listen but don't base your decisions on the advice of others. To ensure you have a great shopping experience while on the Internet, we recommend the following tips. If you feel comfortable wearing heels, choose shoes with a 1inch heel and notice how dramatically taller and slimmer you appear. Get you bra refitted every few years to ensure your bras fit comfortable and won't cling or hang from you. Underwear shouldn't be tight or too loose; this can create unwanted lines and make your clothes hang incorrectly. When creating a wardrobe select the clothes that favour the shape of your body and build your style around these cuts, fabrics and colors. If you have wide shoulders avoid boatneck tops otherwise this shirt can be used to accentuate a bustline or contour the waist.

Handbags and accessories are another issue altogether. With such a variety of sizes, colors and styles there is always that wide belt or large handbag to flatter shape. Clothes should always fit with the accessories but not always be too matching as this can create a bland look. If you don't like accessories brushing against your body, go for a strapless handbag. Belts can be used to contour waist. Rather large belts can cut the body in half, avoid this look if you think it is unflattering. The latest fashions are not always best. There are so many color, cuts to consider and they won't fit you everytime. Choose selectively or buy clothes that resemble clothes you already have. Colors are a great way to show off or hide parts of the body. Bright clothing can attract and are great as a top to highlight a favourite asset. The same applies to dark colors; these can be used to flatter your bum or waist. Create a look that will leave a lasting impression by mix and matching the fabrics of your clothing while keeping the color the same shade. This creates a funky look that won't be bulky or uncomfortable. Remember to avoid clingy or baggy clothing, as these will distort your figure.

Keep these tips in mind when you are next browsing the online shopping sites. Have an eye out for clearances and sales but be ware that they are on sale for a reason. Create a look that is timeless and practical rather than expensive and "gotta have that now look." Select your clothes online, draw up a wishlist then step instore for fast shopping or order online for convenient and fast delivery straight to your door. Shop around to be sure you have value for money as many stores have similar styles at a cheaper price.
