What to wear to be comfortable in size 42 and up?

Feeling beautiful and comfortable is important, whatever your size. For women who dress in plus sizes, finding comfortable and elegant clothes can sometimes be a challenge. Here are a few tips to help you find the pieces that will make you feel good in all circumstances:

Choose the right fabrics:

  • Choose natural, breathable fabrics such as cotton, linen, tencel, viscose or silk.
  • Avoid synthetic fabrics, which can make you feel hot and sweaty. Not to mention that they contain static electricity, which is particularly unpleasant.
  • Opt for soft, flowing fabrics that hug your shape without constricting you.

Choosing the right cuts:

  • Choose clothes in your size. We always want to fit into the next size down at all costs. It's a bad idea that makes itself felt with every move.
  • Choose slightly loose-fitting clothes that won't stick to you too tightly. No risk of "cracking" at the slightest movement.
  • Try out different cuts and silhouettes to find those in which you feel beautiful and confident.

Choose the right colors:

  • Don't be afraid to wear bright, cheerful colors that make you smile.
  • Dark colors are slimming, but do they really define you?
  • Test colors, and see which ones make you look good.

Enhance your outfits with accessories:

  • Accessories have the power to add a touch of elegance, whimsy and pizzazz to your outfits.
  • A necklace, a belt, a scarf, a handbag, and you've got a new look for this little dress that's already been worn so many times.

Top tips :

  • Trust yourself and don't always listen to what others say. 
  • Wear clothes you like and feel good in.
  • Don't be afraid to be bold and express your style.

So, are you ready to feel good physically and mentally in your plus-size clothes?
