Hi. I'm Tina Gill with Worthwhile Style and today I'm going to be helping you figure out what your dress size is if you're a plus size woman. So, first and foremost you need to figure out what part of your body, either at the upper half or the lower half is your larger size. Most women are not proportionate like my little mannequin here. So, you're either a fourteen up top or a sixteen on the bottom. What you want to do is when you're shopping for a dress, go with the sixteen. So, if you're a sixteen up here and a fourteen down here, go with the sixteen. Because what you want to do is fit the largest part of your body. So, say you're bigger down here at the bottom, look for a dress like this that has a little bit of a waist here and then slopes away from the body. This is great for a lot of different body shapes because it has a slight A-line and it draws the attention to the smallest part of your waist. So, something else I love about this dress for the plus size woman, is the cowl neck here. And what that does is it opens up your face so that your face is the star of the show. And it gives you a great opportunity to pop a nice big chunky piece of jewelry here. Super fun. So, when you're out shopping and you're not sure exactly what your dress size is, fit the largest part of your body and have it tailored down from there. I'm Tina Gill with Worthwhile Style. Thanks for watching.
