More and more clothing retailers are catering for plus-sized women, and providers of fancy dress outfits are starting to catch up. There are an increasing number of fancy dress costumes becoming available that are flattering for women of all shapes and sizes. Although there’s a lot of plus size fancy dress costumes available, not all plus sized women are the same shape. Take some time to select the most flattering fancy dress costume for your shape:
- Apple Shape
Apple shaped women are generally larger around the middle. If you’re this shape, you should choose fancy dress outfits that show off your shapely legs. Choose dresses that stop an inch or two above the knee, and make sure that you wear a dark colour on your top half to disguise your tummy.
- Pear Shape
If you’re pear shaped, your bottom half is larger than your top half. You should choose fancy dress outfits with low necklines to draw attention to your top half. Sleeveless styles are also very flattering. Avoid tight skirts and trousers that will accentuate your problem areas, and wear high heels to make your legs look longer.
- Further Ideas
Plus sized women should avoid wear baggy, oversized costumes, as they will only make them look larger. Choose fuller figure fancy dress costumes that are highly tailored and nip in the waist to give you an hourglass figure. Avoid clingy material that will stick to your problem areas, and consider wearing shape-wear under your costume.
