Wear clothes that flatter your shape

I think that it's really, really important to remember that just because you need a plus size it doesn't mean that you can't be trendy and up to date.

Start from where you are NOW and don't worry too much about what size you'd like to be or are going to be in the future. It's also important to choose styles that flatter you. There's no point in wearing a style that you really like but that doesn't flatter your figure.

Find out what REALLY suits you and stick to that. If you have clothes that fit you will people will notice. You'll get compliments. Friends will ask if you've lost weight! It's truly amazing what happens to your self confidence if you wear clothes that fit and flatter your shape.

My tummy is bigger than I would really like but when I wear A-line skirts and figure hugging tops in colours that look good on me I always get compliments. Sometimes the things I wear are things that I've had for ages and yet because they fit properly others think that they are new.

Another thing I like to do from time to time is take everything out of my wardrobe and try it on. This lets me see what I have, what needs to be replaced and what gaps I have. I can see if I need to add things and I can find out if a new accessory, such as a scarf or a necklace would update an outfit for a fresh look.

My personal opinion is that things like scarves can really transform your wardrobe and the beauty of them is that they can be really cheap. There are some bargains in the charity shops if you keep an eye out.
