About Plus Fashion Mistakes: On Big Clothing

Tammy made a great comment on a User Answer section -- check it out!

"For some reason, alot of people on here said things that I felt stemmed out of their insecurities (wear big clothing, no cap sleeves, and no colors). Each person has their own shape, so what may work for you might not work on another. That being said, all big women, though, should wear form-fitting clothes: something that accentuates your shape but goes over your bulges. And as for prints and color, I think it's a matter of not making anything clash (for all sizes). People talk about sloppy big women, but the world hasn't made it easy for big women to express themselves. Either something fits right but is too expensive, or something looks absolutely ridiculous (you know: the ugly florals and baggy fit). Where I live, there are not alot of clothes for big women compared to where my cousin lives in North Carolina. I'm 18, I can get away with graphic tees if I wanted to, but a nice stylish jacket and pencil skirts looks great on anyone."

Do you agree?
