 Any advice besides “get clothes tailored to fit perfectly”?


This is an important part of the answer! Please don’t ignore it. If you can’t afford a tailor, learn to sew if you don’t already have the skills.

Buy your clothes to fit the largest area (? hips) then take in the others(? waist).

Also look online for some plus sized women whose style you like  and examine what they are doing with their wardrobe to look more put together.

Are you normally choosing your own clothes?  Perhaps you could have a personal shopper or sales associate help you choose more flattering shapes.  Sometimes it is nice to have fresh eyes while choosing clothing.

@starrynight:  That could make a BIG difference.  I would go to a specialty bra store or a place like Nordstroms to get a proper fitting.  It will make a noticable difference in how your tops fit.

@starrynight:  They say that up t0 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra. Go to a proper lingerie shop that has trained fitters. Once you know what a properly fitted bra feels like, it is easier to find proper fitting bras on your own.

Here is a list of plus size blogs- maybe you will identify with one of these bloggers? You may not, because at a large 16, I don’t even consider you plus sized.

You probably just need to find better styles/shapes/cuts for your figure.  Maybe post some pictures so we can help you by pointing out what the problem is and finding styles that would look better?

I also think that sometimes going with really basic clothes and adding a nice hair cut, color, makeup and accessories changes everything.  Have you tried that? 

What about the proper undergarments?  You probably don’t want to wear spanx every day, but I do wear control top hose a lot.
