Fashion has become one of the biggest industries in the world, so it is no surprise that everyone wishes to look their best every day. In a world which is increasingly catering to different body shapes, it has never been easier to choose the best clothes and accessories to suit your figure. However, this is much easier said than done. From finding out you’re your body shape is, to knowing which clothes to buy, this can be a long journey that causes more stress than happiness. However, with the right tips in hand, you can flatter your figure and feel newfound confidence in no time.
Before you start dressing for your figure, you must determine what your body shape is.

Luckily, this can be very easily figured out, as there are numerous online guides designed to help you find out what your body shape is.
Shop at specialized stores
Most women do not have the same dimensions as those who walk the catwalk at fashion shows, but it is still quite difficult to find stores which sell the clothes you love. When it comes to embracing your figure, you should take the time to browse an extensive range of high street and online stores. Although there are many of them, there are some like www.simplybe.com that sell clothes like plus size coats to suit women of all sizes.
Highlight your favorite features
One of the main reasons people love fashion is because it provides them with a chance to feel confident. This means you should avoid hiding some of your most beautiful features, and instead highlight them. For example, you may love how small your waist is, so you can use a belt to make it a focal point of your outfit. Patterns like vertical stripes can also help you elongate your legs and make the most of your height.
Follow online bloggers
The media is in constant change, and there are now models and bloggers out there who are promoting fashion for real people, rather than just catwalk ideals. This means you can find bloggers that give fashion tips for people of any size. This makes them the perfect resource to turn to when you are looking for new fashion inspiration. In some cases, they will do reviews of items, so you know you are investing your money wisely.
Don’t forget your personal style
When you are reinventing your style, it can be easy to become lost in the mainstream ideas of what looks great, and what doesn’t. Ultimately, you will want to dress in a way that makes you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin. When you have this positive image of yourself, it often doesn’t matter what you are wearing, as confidence is always the best accessory a person can wear.Tammie~

I’ve found that wrap and cross-wrap tops and dresses flatter me because they hide my belly.
I wish there was a store where someone could help me. I hate shopping and never know what will look best on me. Your post has helped, though.
