- To ascertain a basic understanding of your body type:
- Measure your bust at the fullest part
- Measure your hips at the fullest part (often the groin or upper thighs)
- Measure your waist at the narrowest point
I will use a hypothetical woman with 38-inch hips to discuss how your results may affect your body shape.
Is it not frustrating to see fashion on thin or skinny bodies that you would like to emulate but cannot find it in your size? Also as a plus size woman, you will notice that sizes across various brands do not match up, this means what is perceived as your size on one brand does not apply to the other – a mess of confusion, really. What about the general perception that plus size fashion can only be granny chic or clubwear? In recent times, many brands have attempted to create good quality and fashionable plus size fashion, I will attempt to put all the research I have in this post and update it as often as I can.
