Plus Size Fashions for the BBW

Many BBW nowadays are no longer trying to look thinner than they are, or even to lose weight. They have designed to carry their extra poundage with pride and distinction, and this is to their advantage. But some of us still hope to lose some of the extra weight we're carrying around and have hopes of one day being a little more slender. Again, which group you fall into will probably influence the kind of plus size fashions you'll be interested in.

If you'd love to look slimmer, certain styles and colors will help you in your quest. In general large patterned fabrics are not too successful in plus size fashions unless you really want to look flamboyant. Another fashion trend to avoid is horizontal stripes of any kind. It is well known that they will make you look wider because they draw the eye horizontally. To the contrary, vertical stripes, or vertical blocks of color, can create a slimmer silhouette.
