Plus Size Tips – Colors, Patterns, Prints, and Styles for Curvy Girls
What is the rhyme and reason to women’s plus size clothing? What are the best patterns, colors, and styles for curvy girls? Curvy girl clothing comes in countless patterns and prints, colors and fabrics, and cuts and styles. Depending on your own preferences and your instincts, you can consider the wide world of plus size women’s clothing to find the right fit and style for you.

“I personally love prints vs. solids, but that is really a personal preference,” says Paula Guthrie, owner of Bodacious Boutique. “We suggest that your top / jacket length hit you at the top of your leg, so that it covers the tummy and back side. Long tops and tunics look best on taller ladies. As far as colors, we love the look of a black tank and pant or skirt with a fun jacket. This way you only have to invest in a top / jacket piece and it is also great for travel, to save space in packing.”

Boots for Plus-Sized Women
If you are interested in adding a sexy or sedate pair of boots to your footwear collection, but have difficulty finding a boot that fits comfortably, you are not alone.
