Just be comfortable!  I think that’s the most slimming thing!  I didn’t try anything in particular…I think if you overthink it, you’ll be disappointed and look uncomfortable!

Wear something you feel great in that accents your best feature.

I’ve been wondering about this too. I am recently engaged and was considering skipping engagement photos altogether because I’m plus-sized, and I didn’t think I’d be happy/comfortable with any pictures of me that aren’t like the waist – up. Ya know? I just don’t wanna look like a cow. Haha.

@CarolinaCola: Well thank you ๐Ÿ™‚  There were one’s though that made me cringe. I just never did anything with those ones lol.

Plus if you tell your photog your concerned they might change position and become super aware. I told her that I didn’t want to take one’s sitting because I know what my body looks like when it’s all scrunched together it’s not appealing. So in this one she actually got down lower to block the roll ๐Ÿ™‚

and in this one my tummy is obviously out of the way

@mwitter80: Aww. I really love those pictures too! Those are two really great poses/angles for us fluffy ladies. But I feel like I would still look huge if I were in that laying down pose. I think I’m quite a bit larger than you.

@mwitter80: Aw, thanks for the encouragement. My FI’s sister does photography, so I think we’ll talk to her about perhaps doing our e-pics over Thanksgiving.

ETA: Gah, I’m not good at articulation today. What I mean is, talk to her about it on Thanksgiving, not actually doing the pictures over Thanksgiving. I just re-read it and realized it sounded incorrect to me. Haha.

@ForeverAndEverAfter: Haha! I know right. Sometimes even on plus sized boards I feel like I’m EXTRA plus sized! You are not alone!!

@ForeverAndEverAfter: I am a size 16 and weigh over 200lbs. I know there are lots of people who are larger than me but I def qualify as plus! I at one point weight over 300lbs and got down to a size 8. It was torture lol. I like my body pretty much at this point.

Although now I’m pregnant so my tummy is starting to get bigger but for good reason ๐Ÿ™‚

@CarolinaCola: I just don’t think you should miss out on something because you’re plus sized. I hate that. Love yourself!
