Women’s Fashion: Choosing Clothes for a Plus Size

As a society, we are growing larger – not in the sense that there are more people being born now, than ever before, but in the sense that our bodies are getting bigger. Obesity is a big problem (no pun intended!), and many of us need to lose a little weight; indeed, recent news have reported on studies saying that by the year 2012, 1 in 3 of the UK’s population will be overweight. However, coupled with these trends, we also have to mention the general social pressures to be slim; these pressures are generated by the media, and are extremely powerful. This means that many people are unhappy with their weight, and women, in particular, have a hard time in believing that they can, and do, look great in the clothes they wear.

Many women believe that if they need to wear plus size women’s clothing, they are not attractive, but this is simply untrue. The fact that people feel unattractive before they even begin dressing in the morning means that they seldom make the effort, but it is by making the effort that most people who look good, manage to achieve their look. Here, we will discuss some of the ways that you can ensure you look great, regardless of your size or body shape.

Identify your Body Shape

In order to look good, you need to wear the correct style of clothing for your body shape, and in turn, you will need to know which body shape you actually have. To do this, stand in front of the mirror and note the following:

If you are in proportion, with wide hips and a wide bust, you have an hourglass figure. If you are in proportion, with busts and hips that are straight down, then you have a boy figure. If you are wide on top, with narrow hips, you have an ‘inverted triangle’ or apple shape figure. Finally, if you are narrow on top, with wide hips, you have the ‘pear’ shape figure.

Depending on your figure, you will need to wear different styles of plus size women’s clothing, to flatter your figure. The rule of thumb is to highlight your assets, while down playing the less positive features of your figure. For example, if you have an hourglass figure, you will want to highlight your natural curvaceous – do this by wearing tailored tops and trousers.

Colour and Material

In order to wear flattering clothes when we are overweight, we need to choose the right material and colours.

Generally, you will need to select materials that are lightweight; a heavier material will add bulk to your frame and make you appear larger. Avoid fabrics that cling, as they tend to do so in all the wrong places, and this is true even when worn on the smallest of figures.

Darker clothes have the most slimming effect. When putting together an outfit, choose colours that are complementary, rather than contrasting, as the contrast effect breaks … Read More

How to Flirt With Women – Flirting Tips for Shy Guys

One of the most difficult things for a man to divine is when a woman is interested. Women are more cautious than men, and wait a while to indicate that there is possibly some interest. Read those words carefully – possibly some interest. Women usually don’t jump into things. So how do you know when to pursue?

In my checkered dating career, I have approached many women, and been rebuffed by quite a few. Some nicely, some not so nicely. I learned to let the person in whom I may be interested lead a little. Traditionally, men have been the aggressor, but I can assure you that is not always the best tactic. Sure, be aggressive, but do it gently, and be ready to back off, if you want to have success. Many women will just shut you out if you persist when they have not evinced some interest, or have made it clear that they are not interested. Be patient, and you will be rewarded with the attentions of someone you may like a lot.

How to Flirt With Women-Flirting Tips for Shy Guys

Cultivate a Confidant – One good method is to watch for negatives in conversation. If during your getting-to-know-you conversation, there are many subjects upon which you think differently, then maybe you will be acquaintances and not “special” friends. If it happens that you know of an upcoming event that she might like, suggest it and wait for a response. Now, there is an idea – wait for a response. This can also be a way of finding out some things she does not like.

A good thing to keep in mind is that a long-term relationship is based in friendship, not just lust. There is nothing wrong with lust — without it, many of us would not be here. But you must keep in mind that your woman friend, significant other, lover, whatever, will be a friend and confidant as well as all the other good stuff. You must be able to criticize each other, share secrets, share good stuff and bad. Someone once said that a friend is someone whose faults you know and you love them anyway. That is not to say that every single thing has to be shared. Who among us does not have a skeleton or two? Be careful what you share — it will not always be a good idea. Besides, why would you want to disclose something hurtful? Just be honest in all things, and then you don’t have to worry.

Don’t Be a Sore Loser

We as men must realize that women are not necessarily interested just because we are interested. This harkens back to the concept of treating women with equanimity. The most beautiful and desirable woman may just not be interested in you. It does not necessarily mean there is anything wrong with you — she may like a different sort of man. I have heard so many men contend that a certain … Read More
