What my Plus Size Friend Taught Me


In my first year of graduate school packed on 25 pounds. It was one of the most difficult body changes I have had to deal with to-date. Now I'm not a plus size girl but when you're use to being a size 95 and your now a size 125 those new curves can throw you for a loop. I remember the first time I went shopping and had a Fitting Room Confession: BeBe's in Las Vegas  it was an experience to remember. There I was standing the mirror looking at myself thinking, "how the hell did I get here." So, my best friend, her mom, and my sister gave some advice to help our a curve sista like myself transition into a new found sense of confidence.

  • Monistat Chafing cream is sent by the Gods!
  • Thick thighs save lives!!! If you know what we mean, LOL.
  • Wearing a cover up does not mean wearing a t-shirt. Try something shear and sexy.
  • Being curvy does not mean you get to pass on working out. My sister told me it's all about being fit on the inside.
  • Crocs give you good support even if you think they're ugly. Find a style and go with it because your feet will thank you later.
  • While we're talking about shoes, BLOCK HEELS, and platforms.
  • Horizontal strips will make you look wider so proceed with caution.
  • My bestfriend's mom says, 'Use the horizontal line the right way, clinch/tapper that waist, create some space.' A belt is a good idea if used properly.
  • Buy good jeans because cheap ones will wear in the thigh area so you might want to get some extra padding.
  • If you buy a swim suit you don't have to get a one piece or a tankini. You can purchase your top at one store and your bottoms at another. Sometimes the breast don't fit so use this as an excuse to do more shopping.
  • My bestfriend stated to me, "accentuate your strong suits properly and appropriately." For example, if you have big breast then v-necks or scoop necks are great. To break it down even more wear large jewelry pieces.
What are your plus size tips? Do your curves cause you dilemmas? If so, what are they?
