But mother who belongs in the plus size category sometimes feel stressed in achieving the look they wish to have. Traditionally, the plus sized woman is hard pressed to find anything that is sophisticated and fashionable. They always found themselves confined in archaic rules that dictated they cover as much flesh as possible in yards dark and dab fabric. It is time to do away with outdated law of style and step into the light as proud plus size woman. Here are the styles you may have to choose in getting a perfect plus-size dress to give you the stunning look you wish to achieve:
All Figure Types A sheath style dress can work with any figure. An A-line or princess style can also work well with all figure types. The empire waist dress is yet another universal look.
Bottom Heavy Mother of the Bride/Groom The bottom heavy body shape is fuller in the hips and thighs while narrower in the shoulder; this also known as the pear shape body.
Dresses that are nipped in the waist; and flare slightly over the hips and thigh works well with this body type. If you have pretty arms and shoulder, go sleeveless. If you are conscious about your arms, wear a sheer shawl or cover. An empire cut dress will draw the eyes up and away from the problem areas.
Top Heavy Mother of the Bride/Groom Also known as the apple shape body type. The top heavy figure has narrow hips and slimmer legs while the upper body have heavier breast and the midsection is softer. Go for two-piece outfit such as a blouse and skirt, a sleeveless sheath or a princess seamed dress. Don't be afraid to show skin, bare your arms or your shoulder. Or you may try a slit in the skirt to show a little leg.
Many plus size women skip on accessories because they think it would make them look even larger. However, when do correctly; accessories can make you look slimmer. One example of a slimming accessory is a dangling earring. If you have a round face or are a full size woman, then you should never wear only studs in your ears. Having something hanging down your ear will give a slimmer illusion of your face. So, be sure to add dangling earring with your plus size mother of the bride or groom's dress. Necklace works the same way, as long as they match the earrings. Pearls are always great option for the mother of the bride or groom.
Shawls or sheer sweater are also helpful in hiding the problem areas. If you choose plus size mother dress in sleeveless or strapless and is uncomfortable in showing skin, then put on a shawl or a sweater and be confident with your look. If the shawl won’t stay in place, add a lovely broach to make it stay put.
Hair is another thing that can take pounds off a plus size face. Do not be afraid to wear your hair away from your face. Wearing your hair back off of your face will draw the eyes upward and will give your face a slimmer appearance.
