Fashion Mistakes Full-Figured Women Should Avoid

It is a sad fact that most full-figured women are fashion cautious. This naturally leads to fashion mistakes which take away from their beauty and make them feel uncomfortable. You can easily avoid these mistakes if you know what they are. You will also benefit from practical advice on how to dress gorgeously to flatter your figure and emphasize your best assets.

Maxi Dresses

These dresses make you look big. Besides, they are typically unshapely so you may as well wear a sleeping bag. No one will notice the difference. It is easy to avoid this fashion mistake made by full-figured women. Go for formfitting (not tight) dresses with above-knee length. They should follow the contours of your body perfectly. Consider models with long sleeves and in dark colors for a great slimming effect.

Turtle Neck Tops

With these tops you look as if you have a wide neck and appear shorter as well. The empire waist tops and dresses are great for full-figured women and so are the wrap ones. The heart neckline tops and dresses are ideal for more formal occasions. Do not miss a chance to make a fashion statement and emphasize your best assets. Just remember that the bottom part of the top or dress should not be loose.


Wearing leggings is among the major fashion mistakes full-figured women make. The reality is that they squeeze your calves, thighs and butt and make all wobbly bits appear bigger. The straight formfitting jeans are a much better alternative.

Long Loose Sweaters

Needless to say, they just make the body look big and unshapely. Generally, due to their make, sweaters make any person appear a big bigger. That is why it is best to go for really thin ones which follow the curves of your torso and do not go below the hips. The feminine cardigans are a great choice as well. If you think that you may feel cold with a thin sweater, you can readily wear it with a formfitting jacket or blazer in the same style. If you decide to put a cardigan on, you can combine it with a shirt.

Horizontal Stripes

Even if you have a super sexy curved full figure, horizontal stripes will make you appear wider especially at the hips, waist and butt. Avoiding this one of the fashion mistakes full-figured women make is easy – just don’t wear this pattern. There are plenty of other ones which you can try in addition to the classic solid colors. The single-colored floral ones are a great choice and so are the small dots.

Large Prints

They make you appear bigger than you actually are. Generally, prints take the attention away from the contours of the body and make it appear somewhat unshapely and this is a problem for virtually anyone. The small patterns are the best alternative to large prints.

To sum things up, you should avoid wearing clothes which make your body appear big and unshapely. You can easily avoid most fashion mistakes that full-figured women make by wearing formfitting garments that flatter your figure and choose colors and decorations which make you appear thinner.
