So what are you wearing today ?

I will start my blog with some fashion tips for the plus size ladies out there..

A one-piece body slimmer will create a sleek look under your figure-hugging dresses.

Try on all of your favorite clothes. Take notes on how they fit and flatter you. Then shop for similar colors, fabrics, shapes and lengths.

A well-cut suit is one of the most flattering outfits you can own. Remember: dark tones create a long line.

Any color worn head to toe (monochromatic) in a clean, unbroken line will produce a dynamically slimming effect. Remember, monochromatic doesn't have to mean boring -- mix textures to keep the look interesting (i.e. knits with leather)

The darker a print's background, the slimmer the look.

A slim v-neck makes the neck appear longer and is usually very flattering.

If your legs are fuller inside, try a side slit. If your legs are fuller outside, a mid-front or back slit is a better choice.

Bright colors bring attention to an area - make sure you wear them wisely and only on your most flattering body parts.

Make sure that each time you buy a new bra, you are properly fitted with the help of a sales associate at the lingerie or department store. Wearing a properly fitted bra makes you look great and feel much more comfortable.

Proportion can play tricks on the eye. While an oversized handbag makes a great accessory, a small handbag will make your figure appear larger.

If you are petite (5'3" or under) make sure you scale everything down -- smaller prints, pockets, etc. so they don't overpower your figure.

Last but not least, focus on something that makes you feel great about yourself ...And remember - Plus Size is now the normal. Skinny people are now unusual looking !

You go gals!
