You can choose any pattern that is vertical, because they will make you look long and more vertical rather than wide. This doesn’t mean that you have to fill your closet with clothes that have vertical patterns. Just keep the horizontals to a minimum.


The often heard so-called fact is that black makes you look thin. But, life needs some colour so, again don’t just stuff your wardrobe with just black like most plus sized people. It is not that only black will make a person look thinner, all dark colours tend to make people look thinner than usual.

Be bold and add all your favorite colours in. Don’t let your size stop you from wearing your favorite colour. Just make sure that the shape and cuts are right.

Skirts suit apple, diamond and inverted triangle shaped people. Hour glass shaped people can go for skirts too, but fish cuts will suit them better as it compliments their shape better and brings out those curves which most people envy. Pear shaped people should wear clothes that are a bit tight at the waist.

Dress sizes

The other trick is to buy the dress size that fits the biggest part of your body. If you have thick thighs and you want to buy a nice pair of pants, buy the size that lets your thighs slide in easy and also lets your skin breathe. Yes, this does mean that the pants may not sit right on your hips.
