Hi, I'm Tina Gill with Worthwhile Style and today I'm going to give you a few tips of how to dress the plus size woman. So first what I want to talk about is this fabulous print that's on this dress. I have a lot of plus size clients and the thing that they don't love when they buy a dress, if it's solid color because what they feel is that it shows all their little lumps and bumps and they feel like they have to wear a shaper with it. Well, if you go with a larger print such as this or pattern it kind of detracts from that and it camouflages the body in a great way. The thing that I love about this dress too is that it has this nice cowl neck here so it's really going to open up your face. Also there's some seaming right here at the middle so it's going to hold you in right at the smallest part of your body and then it floats into an A line skirt. This is a great shape for all plus size women. It cinches you in here and floats away from the body. Now, I'm going to show you how to take this same dress and add a couple of layers to it to make it even more slimming. Alright, so as you can see I've added a little denim bolero and this great brown belt here at the waist. It instantly cinches in your tummy and a lot of women that are plus size, this is one of their trouble areas. But, there's a lot of curvy women out there that this is the smallest part of their body. So a great way to accentuate this is to add a nice belt here and what it does too is it breaks up the overall print so it gives your eye a place to rest. This denim bolero is fabulous. You can totally wear this outfit to the office, add the denim bolero, you're ready to go out. This is perfect for Fall and Winter, add some tights and a pair of riding boots, you're good to go. The bolero is really nice too because what it does is it adds a little volume up here because you have a little volume down here. So if you look you see the shoulder line, the waistline and the hip line. What we've done here is create the hourglass figure. So as you can see when you're dressing the plus size woman, you can add a whole bunch of different items to really work with what your body type is. If you've got a small waist, pop a belt there and really accentuate it. If you don't like your arms, you want to add a little bit of something up here to cover them, a denim bolero is a great way to go. I'm Tina Gill with Worthwhile Style, thanks for watching.
