The narrative since forever was that fashion starts and ends in the ‘skinny world’. Well, thank goodness the world is finally getting some sense. We are all built differently, but fashion is for everyone. Regardless of their body size or gender. Read on and find out why and how plus-sized people are proving fashion goes beyond skinny! 



Basics truths on plus-size clothing

If you want to achieve being that plus-sized fashion icon that cannot be ignored, you should know the rules. Not just that, but also follow them. 

This is not to keep you in a box. Rather, it’s understanding the peculiarity of your body, and how to make your choice of clothing.

Here’s a few:

  1. You cannot always wear ‘ready-made’ clothes with the basic measurements. This is because there are still several fashion brands that don’t cater for plus-sized women and men. Don’t get disappointed, love. Just look out for the best plus size online stores out there.
  2. Oversized clothes are not only meant for plus-sized people. You read that right. Most times, they make you look bigger than you do, and defeat the purpose of the style you want to portray. Plus-sized people can look snatched too!
  3. To buttress points 1 and 2, you would need an excellent seamstress. Your seamstress should be your go-to when brands fail you or when you want to look chic on an occasion. He/she should come through on days when a purchase goes wrong. Ensure you make a wise choice.
