I know its very hard to find cute and chic costumes when you have more meat on your bones. Either costumes are too small and short or just unflattering and tacky. Luckily I’m here to tell you you have two options; you can either use my tips to make a costume out of what you already have in your closet or if you want something sexy you can go with www.torrid.com and I’ll also include pictures of my favorite costumes.

Gypsy:

Take a long sleeve peasant top, long circle skirt and tie a bandanna around your head. Accessorize with large hoops, bangles and lots of necklaces.

Ok so I know you’ve seen animal prints everywhere. They have been on every runway for the past 3 years. a lot of us chunky girls get scared of animals prints because we think it will make us look chunkier. Well i am here to tell you not to be afraid! When you wear an animal print (whether its zebra, leopard, cheetah or lizard) be sure to wear solids and make the animal print be a focal piece; for example a black pencil skirt with an animal print top or just the shoe or handbag. I have included some pics to show you animal print done right!

Leopard blazer $44.99 www.plussizefix.com

This blazer is fitted and not bulky so you will look tailored. Wear it with jeans and a fitted white tee!

tube top

strapless tiger and leopard top with bow $30.99 www.plussizefix.com

This top is super sexy yet chic! The bow around the waist gives this top the perfect accent. Pair it with a black pencil skirt and pumps or fitted jeans.

Hello everyone!

I have decided to add a new category to our blog! Yay us! We have decided that there is no love for the with um..more to love! I am one of them and should be ashamed (believe me I am) that I haven’t devoted blogging to how to be sexy when you are not a size 6. I used the word ‘curvy’ because I can’t stand the term “plus size”! voluptuous (though it describes me exactly) doesn’t describe every girl who isn’t a size 6. There are a lot of girls who have small busts but are still curvier. I chose the term curvy because a lot of us are shapely because of the extra fluff! So my Curvy Chic blog entries will be dedicated to sizes 12-20. I am a size 16 and I have a lot of curves so I want to show you how to use the trends that ‘skinny girls’ only get to wear.

The interesting part about the diversity of fashion trends is that there is something for everyone. The problem with clothing is that its cookie cutter and plus size people are not all shaped the same. The best part of today’s trends is that its roomy and comfortable. Now, it’s sexy without revealing.

Here are some trends that you can work with your body shape!

If you happen to be pear shaped then try the sixty’s fashion trend- the bell bottoms will slim your legs and give shape to your butt.

bell bottoms

If you are lucky enough to have a small bust than try a maxi dress. if you have large busts than try the bandeau version and large triangle top (please stay away from spaghetti straps)

maxi dress

If you are large busted and also have a tummy than try a romper and do not add a belt to your waist which will make your stomach stand out.

A ruched top like the one above hides the belly. If you don’t feel comfortable showing your legs than trade the romper for a jumpsuit.
