Yes, stripes weren’t so cool in the past but these days a good designer can create stripes’ optical illusion power for good. The asymmetrical stripes make curvy women look more svelte and taller. To achieve a flattering silhouette, opt for stripes that angle inward towards your waistline.

Flatter your curves with empire line dresses

It doesn’t matter if you are wearing a western or native outfit; make sure they are designed in an empire line way as they help to highlight your strengths.

Statement jewellery is your best friend

You can look effortlessly stylish with statement jewellery which takes attention away from your size and highlights your strength. A choker neckpiece, for instance, will do well with your outfits.

Darker shades flatter you more than pastel shades as a plus size woman because it not only makes you look glam but appear slimmer.

Go metallic
