Spring will soon be upon us, and with that there will be a lot of new fashions available that come with more options to sport in the warmer weather. There are a lot of rules in regard to keeping up with the latest fashion trends and they’re not always consistent, but if you want to look good and feel great, there are a few rules that you should follow.
- Wear what you think looks good on you
Looking great isn’t just about what other people think, but about what you’re comfortable with and the styles that you think will flatter your body. It’s true that there’s nothing that will look great on everyone and that different styles are more suited to different body types, but pretty much everyone can find something that looks great on them. There are actually a lot of styles that flatter plus sizes, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find something that you look great in.
- Screw what society thinks
The fashion industry and society itself have a long history of judging women for the way they look, and having a very narrow view of what’s attractive (this has changed over time and varies by culture). As such, there was a time not long ago when pretty much every model and actress in the US was a size 6 or under — quite simply not a reflection of reality. You shouldn’t be held back by arbitrary and unrealistic beauty standards if you want to look fashionable.
- Be confident about yourself and about your body
A major part of looking great and how you carry a look depends on how confident you are in being able to pull it off. Simply put, confidence is sexy. Don’t worry so much about whether a particular style would be suitable for a woman with curves — if you like it and think it looks good on you, wear it confidently. Many online fashion retailers have personalized body-type calculators to help you better understand your body and what styles will work for you. Online retailer swimsuitsforall, for example, styles their swimwear by body type as well as size, which makes it even easier to find what you’re looking for. They even cater exclusively to plus size women, so you know there’s something for women of all sizes, 8 to 34.

A lot of social expectations about beauty come from attacking women’s self-confidence, and if you want to free yourself of these restrictive thoughts you’ll need to be confident about your own body and the styles that you think looks good on it. A component of the negativity towards larger women is implying that a woman above a certain size cannot look good or find any models who look like them, and the best way to move beyond these views is to directly confront them.
It’s often difficult to find good looking plus size clothing in a brick and mortar store, so being able to find great styles online is advantageous — especially with swimsuits, as it can otherwise be a pain to find something that looks great and fits just like that.
