7 Fashion Hacks That Will Keep You Ahead of the Game

The benefit to being plus size for a long time means that you have the knowledge of how to be fabulous regardless of your size. You live by experience, your friends experience, books, online articles and tons of support from great magazines like Plus Model Magazine.

I wanted to give you some of the hacks that have kept me and my wardrobe ahead of the game over the years.

1. See past the trends

Women are exposed to a lot of media every day. Just because it’s trending doesn’t mean it will look good on everyone. Have confidence in the style you like and know looks well on you and stay firm amidst the bombardment of advertising.

2. Know your measurements

If I were to ask for your measurements would you be able to fork over that info? Don’t worry, most women don’t know. Dressing ourselves is a lot harder if you don’t know the width of your bust, waist, and hips.

3. Sexy doesn’t automatically mean baring it all

Did you see our recent post about baring it all? Seeing body diversity is always a plus. Seeing nudity isn’t necessarily a must. Define what sexy looks like to you and don’t worry about what the magazines and ads say.

4. Fit always matters

Why do celebrities get tailored clothes? It is the best way make sure everything is fitting exactly how is should. If you don’t have the budget or time to get everything in your closet tailored, then shop with brands that actually invest time and energy into how their clothes fit. Fast fashion is a lot like fast food, it’ll make you happy for a few minutes and then disappoint you.

5. Treat your clothes with care

When we spend our money, we feel better when we see it being put to good use. Ladies, follow the care labels. It is there for a reason 🙂

6. Try on lots of clothes (all the time)

The beauty of fashion is that there are always opportunities for you to learn more about colors, patterns, and styles that work best for you. I urge you to try, try, and try on as many clothes as possible. It is the only way you will find the garments you can’t live without.

7. Fashion empowers us all

Whether you are a size 2 or 22, fashion plays a big role in each of our lives. It helps us feel more confident. And, it can also make us feel not so good when we are not dressed to fit our bodies appropriately. Knowing this fact and applying it to our conscious choices will only make us more informed consumers. And, we absolutely share the love with our BFFs.


Now that I have shared my plus size fashion hacks, I would love to hear your hidden secrets?

    Thanks Tina, these tips are great. I keep my measurements which usually define what I wear but not all of them. Your fashion rocks, come to the Midwest for a trunk show sometime.

      Hi, Paula. Thanks so much for your kind words. It is gratifying to know that my blog is well received.

      While I do not have plans to take my designs on the road any time soon, we have just partnered with Shoptiques. They offer my line with free shipping and free returns for all sales over $100. Feel free to try out a few pieces to see what works well with your figure and your personal style. I am always listening for good feedback about what women would like to see in my designs.

      Thanks again!
