Why the search for a plus-size wedding outfit almost drove me crazy

Plus-size shopping is no longer a real problem. But as a maid of honor for a wedding? The pure horror! The experience report of a plus-size model.

I stand in the locker room and look down at myself. I don't like what I see there. Not at all A knee-length skirt without any contour and a pair of chunky shoes with block heels. Dreadful. As a plus-size girl, why can't I look just as classy and chic as others at weddings ? The search for my wedding outfit in size 48 almost drove me crazy! formal dresses for women

 

"I just don't look fancy!"

When I imagine myself, it is usually in a size 38. All the clothes that I see and find beautiful, I do not imagine in a large size, but as they hang on the dollIt has always been like this. Although I've always been tall. But of course it doesn't work that way. Pencil skirts and pointed pumps look neither chic nor classy on me, they just look impossible. So far so good. But I still don't see why I have to change to wide Walle-Walle skirts and flat shoes.

It starts with the shoes : I have big legs and big ankles. So actually every shoe looks much too filigree in relation to the leg . Actually, I don't have the option of wearing a coarser shoe as a counterweight to my leg. Chic stiletto heels definitely fall out of the way.

It continues with tight clothes: a body-hugging dress quickly looks overly sexy, especially in plus sizes. Not that I wouldn't like to wear that too. But a wedding is not the right place for me to dress sexy.

 

"Black stretches - but is out!"

And first the color choice: black is out . Actually my favorite color for any festive occasion. With red lipstick and the right jewelry, black always looks classy. But since weddings are mostly in summer, dark colors like black, dark green and dark blue actually fall out. And let's be honest: black at a wedding is somehow inappropriate. After all, it's not a memorial service!

So let's be clear: Even if I love my pounds and usually never have problems with shopping to find a chic outfit for a wedding in size 48, it almost drove me crazy!

Plus-size dresses are mostly casual and suitable for everyday use or emphasize feminine shapes so much that they are absolutely unsuitable for weddings. No more, dear designers! long sleeve formal dresses

I want light summer dresses that offer support and flatter my figure. And I would like to have chic, light shoes that don't look tiny even on a wide foot and ankle. It hasn't worked out so well this year. But I am very confident that next year I will finally find the perfect wedding outfit in size 48!

“Comfort is important to me. But I don't want to forego a certain fashion factor and elegance. Because I still want to feel like a woman. "

"Fashion should revolve around my figure and not the other way around."

“Like most women, I have items of clothing in my closet that I don't wear. For example a silk blouse. It is not particularly suitable in everyday life with children. "

“I like to make myself beautiful for my partner. But above all for me too. "

“I take the liberty of putting on what I want. Even clothes that my husband doesn't like. I am completely myself. "

“I am very well prepared when it comes to clothing for upcoming events. I don't like going out without knowing what to expect. That's why I plan very foresight and put complete outfits together. Pack my suitcase in the same way. I also always have an emergency dress with me. "

“My favorite piece from the collection is the military coat. It turned out particularly beautiful and a real it-piece. The buttons are great. In combination with the rocking fake leather leggings, the outfit is perfect. We wanted to break new ground with the look. " long sleeve formal dresses

“The multiple possibilities of fashion are what is fun.

Nike in XXL: The cult brand now makes sportswear for large sizes

 Sportswear manufacturer Nike is launching plus size fashion for the first time in its history and is being celebrated online for this. This is what the plus-size collection from Nike looks like.


Nike has long been THE brand for everyone who is passionate about sport - at least for those who fit in standardized sizes from XS to L. After that, it was the  end of the sportswear manufacturer's size range. It's as if women over size Ldidn't do any sports and therefore couldn't use cool shirts, leggings and hoodies.

The fact that this is incredibly stigmatizing and simply wrong has now finally reached the clothing manufacturer, because Nike clothing has recently also been available above size L. For a plus-size collection , Nike has now designed training wear up to size XXL and is promoting it strong power women. 

 

Why a plus size collection?

If you are wondering why Nike is not simply introducing larger sizes for existing collections and instead designing an entire plus-size collection , Helen Boucher, Vice President of the women's sports line, gives the ultimate explanation: the weight distribution is different for larger sizes, which is why they would oversized sizes of the usual models don't look good. Months of research have gone into the plus size collection to ensure that the clothing fits properly .  cheap formal dresses online

For the new collection various known advertise plus-size models  on their blogs and Instagram accounts for the new line, including fashion blogger Danielle Vanier and vlogger Grace VictoryThere are plenty of likes for this - including from us, because Nike shows one thing very clearly with its new collection: Beauty knows no norm.

Now it's time to go to the beach!

Gone are the days when your swimsuit squeezed your chest and your swimsuit cut your bum. Today plus-size swimwear is a real eye-catcher - and stylish on top of that!

Visually swimsuits and bikini in large sizes do not have to hide behind the smaller models The great thing: With a few tricks and tricks, the wearing comfort for chubby bathing beauties is simply perfect.

 

Buying swimwear in large sizes: Our tips

1. If you have a large bust, you should definitely choose a bikini or swimsuit with wide straps. This prevents the weight of the chest from cutting into the shoulders and leaving painful welts.

2. Pay attention to the cut: the gathers around the bottom and waist of the swimwear distract from the small cushions.

3. Dark tones don't apply as quickly as light ones. So if you are unsure, choose a black or dark blue model.

4. Bathing trunks with a high waist look slim and conceal hip and stomach pads. semi formal dresses australia  

5. Swimsuits with black side elements conjure up a great silhouette and give shape.

These wedding outfits look best on plus size women

 Are you invited to a wedding and want to pack your curves particularly nicely for this occasion? We have tips for great plus-size wedding outfits!

The right outfit as a guest at a wedding  to find is not always easy. Not too provocative, not white, and not a bright tip - many things fall out when looking for an outfit. We have three outfit suggestions here that look particularly stunning on curvy women.


The most beautiful wedding plus size outfits

Curvy women - like less curvy women - should always make sure to emphasize their individual advantages. Before you put together an outfit for a wedding, ask yourself what you love most about yourself and focus your considerations on this.

Dream waists want to be emphasized with pencil skirts

If you have a nice waist, you should definitely showcase it. You can do this with almost any outfit with a belt - striking, but also simple models work for the effect. Do you not only love your waist, but also your buttocks? Then a pencil skirt is just right for you. It should be cut nicely high and reach at least to the knees so that it optimally emphasizes your curves. Perfect combination partners are simple blouses that play with transparency or blazers that turn the skirt into a costume.


Magical curves in a swinging midi dress

The swinging midi dress is a good choice, especially at high temperatures. Flowing fabrics in particular play seductively around curves. The next big plus: Dress on - outfit ready! We just have to choose accessories like jewelry and a handbag and a pair of shoes. A great companion here too: the waist belt - it creates an hourglass effect with the maxi dress.


Sophisticated in Marlene trousers

Although Victoria Beckham is anything but curvy, her looks with Marlene or palazzo pants are a great styling model for curvy women: The wide pants flow around the hips and legs and look elegant and sophisticated. Models with a high waistband, in particular, do a lot for our curves: Simply combine a blouse (ideally simply made of a flowing or semi-transparent material), tuck it into the trousers, put the belt on - done! Put on high pumps or sandals for endless legs and add that extra something with statement earrings. cheap formal dresses australia

Plus size fashion: The most beautiful spring trends 2018 for curvy women

 Spring is already within reach and with the new season all sorts of new fashion trends for curvy women are moving into the shops. The online shops also delight us with beautiful plus size fashion.

  1. Colorful dresses for spring 2018
  2. Floral tops & blouses with Carmen necklines
  3. Pants & skirts for curvy ladies

 Since the #bodypositivity movement at the latest, it has been clear that women with curves shouldn't hide themselves: every body is beautiful, no matter how curvy it is. More and more shops are therefore increasingly relying on plus size fashion. And it's wonderfully colorful for spring 2018The most beautiful trends at a glance - and how to wear them:

Colorful dresses for spring 2018

Lace and floral patterns define spring this year. The waist is emphasized with a belt, with kitten heels or - as a break in style - sneakers. A platform sole visually stretches. Choose simple accessories for print dresses and pick up a color. Plain-colored pieces tolerate shoes and bags with patterns. 


Pr: Mango

The two models are from Mango from the Violeta line. The lace dress you get for 99.99 euros, the wrap dress with floral print costs 69.99 euros.


Pr: Mango & amp; Asos

Pink is one of the trend colors in spring. The dress with flounces and asymmetrical hem by Asos looks particularly cool in the color-blocking trend with shoes or a bag in yellow. The ruffled midi dress by Mango is figure-hugging and looks particularly pretty with strappy sandals.

 

Floral tops & blouses with Carmen necklines

Stripes, Vichy (small checks), flowers and lace determine the fashion trends for 2018. The Carmen neckline remains a trend this year, plus the good old V-neckline (also popular with wedding dresses , by the way ) - and of course: flounces and ruffles . 

Classic striped blouses like those by Mango (top left) can be wonderfully elegantly combined with pencil skirts or jeans. The same applies to the two tops with a Carmen neckline and Vichy pattern (H&M and City Chick via Zalando) . You should only choose pants or a skirt with a high waistband for a cropped model like the top right from Asos made of delicate lace.

 

Pants & skirts for curvy ladies

Asymmetrical hems and flounces can also be found in skirts ; the houndstooth pattern will remain the trend in 2018. 

Pr: Mango and H&M

The midi skirt by Mango looks particularly beautiful with a playful blouse , with sneakers or sandals. High heels make the look chic. You can combine white sneakers and a T-shirt with the houndstooth treggings (a mix of trousers and leggings) by H&MA blazer in a bright color or a muted tone rounds off the outfit.  cheap formal dresses

You can't go wrong with pleated trousers (these are from Mango): They can be flexibly styled and are suitable for both dinner and the office. The jeans skirt by h&M looks rocky with boots, a white blouse breaks the casual look.
