How to wear plus size printed pants.

casual plus size blogger Sherry Aikens

I love these pants they are super fun to wear, flowing and free.  I purchased them last season on ebay, they were like $19.99.   My favorite thing to wear with these fun pattern pants is this large over size shirt.  This black shirt is from JJill last season.  I love black and white  it is a no brainier and since most plus size brands make everything in black,  you can always find something to go together in your wardrobe.

How to wear printed pant:

  1. Make sure they fit, length, and width.. they should not be tight.
  2. Make sure the print is fun and busy.
  3. Fabric weight is not too thin, if be sure to refer to step 4 and 6
  4. Wear a long shirt, so cover any areas, that might be tight.
  5. Try a large flowing pant as a large women they can make you legs look thinner.
  6. Wear with a heel,  height always make you look more statuesque.
  7. Wear proper underwear, so you don’t see them through the print.
  8. Tip:  If you do buy a pair on a deal site make sure you by larger.. they are usually cut small.

How to dress in Casual Plus size clothes.  Everyday as a plus size women I try to figure out to where that is appropriate and looking stylish so when I have a quick up off coffee at Starbucks with a friend.  This outfit of the day  was such an occasion.   It was going to be hot latter in the day, but cool int he morning. I know that I would be working alone in my studio so the strappy camisole would be fine.  So I paired it with a bright printed cardigan for the cool morning coffee and breeze trip around target.

I love spring casual plus size clothes.  The make me want to go outside and read a book, your a garden like out local Longwood gardens or stroll along shopping.  This weekend I enjoyed watching my daughter learn how to ride a  bike. After many year of us trying to teacher her.  She finally at the age of 10 taught herself how.  We don’t live on a street where ride a bike is an option,  we opted for a large backyard and little driveway close to the city with a lot of green. So not prime bike riding area.  So I took her to a local school down the street.  and finally we have lift off- or pedal off.   I love her outfit with 2 different plaid shoes and short with a printed top.

How to wear casual plus size clothes and look great:  Plus Size Casual Flea Market Casual  So this was my easy dressing for going out and looking for the diamond in the ruff.  So I carried my Diamond bag! I do dress up but I also am casual because as a mom I need to be east going and care free. I love a hat I wear it at the pool all summer and out and about but no wrinkles for me as I get older.

I am not loving the quality of picture this week my son was unavailable and my husband is not as tolerant with my request of getting a great shot.

how to choose the right swimsuit in a plus size

How to choose the right swim suit in a plus size : Over the next few weeks I will be share more great swim suits for the plus size lady.  As we move into summer, I will be spending more time at the neighborhood pool.    It always takes a few weeks to feel comfortable  after shedding my winter layers.

Oh those layers.. that make me feel like I am 5’10 Model with extra padding.  Yes, once they go away I have to think about how it wiggles and what jiggles. Then purchase small piece of spandex and elastic, that might have some power mesh, to keep my “bits” together.  Thank God for Power mesh,  just think the women of years gone by did not have these technologically driven swimsuits,  we should count ourselves as lucky..

Right?

NOT…  we are still Plus Size ladies in swimwear  & we need to be proud of out Womanly figures!  Many of these body’s have created life and these stretch marks are out badges of honor!

.. and I am sticking with that story.

How to choose the right swimsuit in a plus size;

  1. When trying on a suit –  never used a “shared” dressing room
  2. Always wear underwear (because ewe)
  3. Be sure to take a picture with your phone.. I say this because you can see how you look from different angles
  4. Wear jewelry-  I know you don’t at the beach but you want to feel good about yourself  when trying the suits on, jewelery helps because it fits
  5. Wear you hair down and bring a clip to tie you hair up.. because you get different vision of how you look. Image of yourself
  6. Buy a suit that covers your butt- bend over and touch your toes does it ride up?
  7. Make sure “The Girls” look supported an not saggy-  Are you wanting place the “lets see what we look like with a boob lift” Game??  Then don’t buy the suit make sure the boobs are up and high.
  8. Do take advantage of Ruching (aka Gathering on sides) it hides those “More Places to Love” areas
  9. Prints they are your friend so try them,  they are in right now.. Plus size women always want a black suit,  they don’t hide anything a pattern moves the eye.
  10. Solid colors on bottoms and Patterns on top Helpful for those who have “assets” and want to use them
  11. Flaunt the girls-  bathing suits are a way to show off your ‘Girls” so please do .. make those of us who don’t have them (I am a B cup) appreciate you have those glorious “D’s” .
  12. Avoid suits that are too loos or too tight no one wants chub rub.. (here is my post to avoid it)
  13. Confidence

Here are some Plus Suits Thank help to hide you “More Place to Love ” Areas
