Trying to find clothes actually fit and are fashionable used to be impossible. As a plus-size woman, your options for high street plus size clothing in Australia were hugely limited. That’s why we created My Size, to help curvier, fashion-conscious women fill their wardrobes and feel fabulous. To help you curate the wardrobe you’ve always wanted, we’re sharing some of the tips we’ve picked up along the way because fashion really is for everybody.
INVEST IN WARDROBE STAPLES
It might cost you more than something you’d find in a fast fashion store, but garments such as timeless plus size dresses can see you through every season, regardless of the trends that come and go. For example, a simple, chic and stylish black coat that goes with everything could last you years.
IGNORE PLUS-SIZE STYLING ‘RULES’
Don’t listen to what the trashy magazines tell you. If you want to, you can wear white, or stripes, or a crop top. Fashion is about expression, not rules. You deserve to feel good and that doesn’t mean you have to hide your body. If you look confident in something it will shine through, and that’s what really matters.
EXPERIMENT WITH COLOUR
Don’t stick specifically to black clothing, because you’d like to look slimmer. Colour looks great on all body types, so why not experiment with what colors work for you? Don’t be afraid to stand out!
BUY MULTIPLE OF THINGS YOU LOVE
When you find a piece of clothing that you really love, that fits you perfectly, and makes you feel amazing, buy multiple. It might seem excessive, but sometimes that perfect fit is hard to find.
NOTE THE FIT OF YOUR FAVOURITE BRAND
Sizing among brands can differ greatly. A good tip is to keep track of your sizes in plus size tops and bottoms at your favorite shops. This is so helpful for time saving and will save you from extra postal returns when shopping online.
