How to Look Fabulous While Being Plus-Sized

When I think of plus-size women, I think of the Renaissance period of time. These women were curvy and had large breasts and tiny waists and gorgeous legs. This was a time when men could not leave them alone. A plus size woman not only possesses curves but she can be classier and more feminine and draw more attention than a small sized gal.

Here are some steps to stay fabulous at your weight:

1. Stay healthy. Eat whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and all the good stuff, staying away from sweets and salty foods. Exercise at least every other day, even if it’s just walking around town. Just because you are plus-sized, doesn’t mean you have to be unhealthy!

2 Don’t get clothes that are too loose or too tight. These can make you look even bigger, and more sloppy. Wear classy trendy clothes in your own style that skim your beautiful curves rather than squeeze or hide them.

3. Remember that dressing is all about illusions. Dark colors are slimming, as are bootleg pants, vertical stripes (not in opposing colors e.g. white with black stripes), high heels add height and be sure to adjust your posture to make you look slimmer, but only wear them if you feel comfortable. Some women may prefer a 3 inch heel as opposed to a 5 inch heel so shop smart.

4. Keep your skin healthy looking. Bad skin just looks bad on people with any figure!

5. Be confident! If you want to get on the dance floor, then go for it! If you want to have something other than a salad, go for it! Who cares what other people think!

6. Think positive thoughts like: I am beautiful, no matter what. Don’t even think about other people’s opinions. And do not focus on pleasing them.

7. Practice good posture. Good posture makes you look taller. Hold your chin up, shoulders slightly back, keep your back straight, even out your pelvic bowl (don’t stick your ass out), place your feet slightly apart. Basically, imagine that there is an invisible thread pulling you up straight from the top of your head.

8. Enjoy the advantages of being plus-sized. Turn your extra pounds into advantages.

Bigger women often have bigger breasts, enhance your bust by wearing v-necks and long necklaces that draw attention towards your breasts; don’t show too much of your bust however.
Plus sized women are curvier than slim women. Men prefer curves and a small waist and they love women with some thighs. Learn how to dress to flatter your curves; not all plus- sized women have an identical body type.

Thank God every night that you are a gorgeous, curvy woman that men absolutely adore!


Do you REALLY Need To Wear Makeup?

Look ladies! If I’ve told you once I’ve told you a hundred times, a stylish, well-dressed woman always wears makeup. Let’s just tell it like it is, you are damned ugly without it! hahaha! Look at it this way, let’s say someone bakes you a cake but they don’t put icing on it. Now the cake may taste good but it’s not as enticing without the icing!

Many women believe that being well-dressed is enough — an expensive suit and great shoes and they are all set. However, being well dressed is just one side of looking great, the other side is looking after your skin and hair and using makeup. Equal attention must be devoted to these aspects in order to achieve a great look.

Why wear makeup?
If you’re not used to wearing makeup and feel that you look foolish or you’re not sure how to apply it, consult a makeup artist. When makeup is used correctly, your skin will look cleaner, dark circles will be less apparent, your eyes will look brighter and your lips more defined. It’s also extremely important to choose colors suitable for your skin tone. Women with light hair and skin will look better in light shades and women who have darker hair and skin look better in dark shades.

Eyebrows frame the face
Thick, tarantula type eyebrows can ruin the look of the most perfectly applied makeup. Remember, plucking or waxing your eyebrows open up the area around your eyes and draws attention to them. You do want to follow the natural line of your eyebrows and only pluck or wax the lower edge of the brow.

Eyeliner and Mascara Mistakes
Whatever your age, you must use eyeliner sparingly. Too much eyeliner can overpower the face and looks tacky. The purpose of eyeliner is to make eyelashes look fuller. To get this effect, apply mascara as close to the eyelashes as possible. Avoid thick black lines. Too much mascara will make your eyelashes stick together or thicken into blobs. To make your eyelashes look longer use an eyelash curler.

Tip for wearing black
Wearing black next to your face will make your skin appear pale and washed out unless you are very tan. Be sure and wear heavier makeup when wearing black. Do not look slutty – look exquisite!

Next week, we’ll focus on some tips for dealing with your INNER emotions and mindset – see you then!

How to Drop 10 Pounds – Instantly!

When I was young back in the 60’s, my lingerie consisted of Merry widows, waist cinchers, corsets, and lycra panty girdles. Back in the boomer days we all kept our hips hugged with lots of lycra. We even had to practice daily breathing exercises so we could still look good without passing out! So now, my drawers are full of all kinds of shape wear. Everything from bras, panties, bike shorts and leg shapers, bodysuits and slips, leggings, and fishnets!

Yes, I’m the world’s biggest fan of shape wear. They are MIRACLE workers! They lift! They smooth! They mold! They shape! They minimize! They hide 10 pounds! They take inches off so you can now get into that outfit that you thought you couldn’t wear anymore.

Here’s the point: the older we get, the more we demand of our underwear. Once you hit 30, sexy alone doesn’t cut it. Nothing ages you like… granny panties, girdle legs, muffin-tops, back fat and saggy boobs! This is wear shape wear (Spanx) comes into play. I don’t even feel properly dressed unless I’m wearing my Spanx! I mean, it makes me feel like I’m in control.

Don’t think that shapewear is just for plus-size women either. Even SIZE 2 women want to feel as though they’re in control of their bodies and keep that little jiggle from moving around! It’s now a given that every woman of style wears shape wear – from the cast of Desperate Housewives to Katie Couric to Oprah to Gwyneth Paltrow. Yes, even Gwyneth has owned up to the fact that she wore two pair of spanx bike shorts post-baby!

And here’s a big surprise for you: do you want to lose 3 dress sizes this weekend? Go to Adryss International and order their “Body Magic“. It may take you 10 minutes to put the thing on, but it takes off 3 dress sizes!

After all ladies, isn’t it all about looking thin? Ha – ain’t it great to be a girl?!
