empire dresses with an A-line silhouette flatters any insecurities with the hip and tummy region, also i would recommend mid-rise straight leg or wide leg to compliment a curvier figure. you can also elongate your legs by wearing a higher rise in pants, as well as jackets or tops that stop right above the hip. don’t wear baggy clothes it would only make you look frumpy. fitted is the way to go, i hope i helped!! :)posted about 8 years ago
hi! i’m sorry about your divorce :( but i’m chubby too and i find that wearing heels elongates your legs. definitely get things that fit—not too tight but not too baggy either. i feel that things that have drapery can easily hide places that you want to hide. also definitely empire-waist stuff and high-waisted skirts/pants are very flattering. i tend to avoid shirts that go up to my collarbone and go for shirts that will kinda let my upper body breathe since i try to hide my stomach area as much as possible, so go for v-neck t’s because they’ll also elongate your neck. long necklaces draw the eye downward.
just for anything that makes you look longer :) and try different colors! :Dposted about 8 years ago
