Looking Slimmer by Wearing a Plus-Size Belt RightWritten by d'Italia
For not just plus-size women, but practically all fashion-minded women, we are always looking for simple, stylish ways to make our bodies appear slimmer. Aside from finding colors, textures, patterns and fits that flatter your specific body type and figure, finding the right belt and wearing it the right way can be a great quick fix for getting a slimmer look.
Knowing Your Body Type Everyone knows the fruit-shape comparisons, and they’re no less valid because of it. Understanding where the strengths and weaknesses of your body are is the key first step to using belts to fashionably slim down your appearance. Using Contrast From there, it’s about contrasting and offsetting those problem areas. If you retain the most weight around your midsection, try wearing a belt high up, just below the bust to create the appearance of a more dynamic mid-figure. Conversely, women with larger busts but smaller abdominal and hip sizes could benefit from lower belts that give the look of a longer, trimmer waist. Store your weight just about everywhere evenly? Try any size belt around the midsection to help give a more definite shape to your body. Beyond that, experiment! Try out different widths of belts on different parts of your torso to see what works best for your shape. And remember, while wearing a tighter belt may seem like a good idea to keep you compressed, don’t wear something so tight it creates bulges.
