Although we have always been told to believe that black is more slimming, it doesn’t always work if the dress isn’t flattering. Not all dresses are made with quality, but you can find a perfect dress without paying a fortune if you know what to look for. For instance, does the fabric feel good to the touch or does it feel like something that may feel uncomfortable on your body. Is the fabric see thru or is there a lining? Is the hem double stitched or does it look uneven and bunchy? Are the seams even throughout the dress; and when the dress is on do the seams puff out, or do they lay flat? These are important details to notice even when you shop on line.
Sometimes our friends don’t always tell us the truth about how we look, because they may not want to hurt our feelings or they may not want competition. I am the kind of person that desires every woman to look and feel there best. I believe when you look good, you may feel more confident and happier with yourself.
The first thing to do is to start being honest with your size in clothes. If you are a size 12, but try to squeeze into a size 10 then your clothes will look and feel terrible. Clothes will always look better when they are the correct size.
The second thing to do is to search for models that are your shape and size to see which styles look good on them. Don’t try and wear an outfit that may look good on a person with a completely different shape and size than you. I made that mistake with my hair. I showed my hairdresser a picture of a hair style that I wanted and when she was finished styling my hair, I was horrified. It took me a while to realize that if my hair wasn’t the same thickness and texture of the model’s hair in the picture I was showing my stylist, then it would not look the same. The same rule applies with clothes, if the model is 5’10” and 120 pounds and you are 5’1” and 130 pounds then the outfit she is wearing will not look the same on you.
Last of all, when you are honest about your shape and size and search for models with the same shape, is when you will find outfits that will complement you, because in my opinion style has no size.
