Swimsuits for Curvy Women

Finding the perfect bathing suit can seem like a never-ending quest of wiggling in and out of tops and bottoms in a poorly-lit dressing room with unflattering mirrors. Shopping for bathing suits doesn't have to be a nightmare if you know what to look for to accentuate your  assets and minimize your flaws. Knowing your body type and choosing a bathing suit to flatter it is one of the easiest things you can do to feel better about yourself at the beach. 

* Take a good look at yourself in the mirror in a bathing suit or underwear and be honest about what body type you have. Some of the most common body shapes include boy-shaped, pear-shaped, apple-shaped, full-figured, large-chested, small-chested and hourglass. Knowing your flaws and assets will help you find the right bathing suit.


* Try on bathing suits in front of a three-way mirror instead of shopping online or through catalogs. You never know if a bathing suit really fits if you don't try it on, even if you are familiar with the mark. Choose stores that you know have good lighting and sufficient mirrors in their dressing rooms to get the best view possible.

Try two-toned bikinis with a lighter top for small busts and pear-shaped figures. Ruffles, textures and embellishments can also make a small bust look fuller. Lighter colors will make your chest appear larger, as will extra fabric; while darker colors will give your lower half a slimming effect.

 Plus size swimsuits 2014. It can not be said uniformly, which are ...
Wear a strapless one-piece to draw attention away from a large bust. Showing off your shoulders will draw eyes away from your large chest, while the full coverage of a one-piece minimizes your overall chest volume. Look for strapless one-pieces with a built-in bra that has an underwire for support.


Show more skin with a string bikini to add the illusion of curves to boy-shaped figures. Your straight waist and legs mean you can get away with wearing a lot less than fuller and curvier figures. Opt for girly colors and prints to play up your feminine side.

Buy a bikini with a bottom that provides fuller coverage to give shape to a small butt. Look for bottoms with ruffles, ruching or embellishments to add volume to your backside.

 Plus Size Women’s Swimsuits

Choose a tankini or a one piece with ruching on the stomach to minimize an apple-shaped body or large tummy.

Summer is HERE, enjoy it!
Love your Body!

Dating Sites for 'Plus Size' Singles


Attraction is a personal choice and as the old saying suggests, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. Dating sites are not new to the Internet and neither are big beautiful/handsome men and women.
So what does BBW or BHM stand for and how they are different from general dating sites? Just like there are sites for religious beliefs, geographical locations and ethnic background, there are also sites to help full figured women and well built men find love.

The acronym BBW and BHM stands for big beautiful women or big handsome men. It is not uncommon to see these acronyms sprinkled through the internet because of the popularity and interest in plus size dating.

For years voluptuous women and well built men were considered to be outside of the dating scene. Today with BBW dating sites those theories have changed drastically. There are sites out there that cater to men and women of all shapes and sizes.

Although BBW dating sites cater to women and men that are heavier set, this does not necessarily mean fat, overweight or even obese like some may imagine. Think about women in history such as Marilyn Monroe, many of whom still consider one of sexiest women ever. By today’s standards Monroe was chubby, but when most people look at her they see a healthy, happy woman.

Many people are tired of the social pressure of conforming to unhealthy dieting practices; they just want to find love that is true, just like they are. Curves are in and the Twiggy body style is out. Many women and men alike prefer a little bit of meat on the bones of their mate. Since the BBW dating niche has surfaced, men and women have more choices in regards to their partner’s physical characteristics along with personality and other traits. Since everyone has different tastes, attractions and desires, it is important that people have choices with online dating. It would be a boring world if everyone liked the same color eyes, hair and body style, thank goodness for uniqueness and choices.

Makeup Tips

If you think fat and beautiful do not go well with each other, think again. To be beautiful, you don't need to be size zero. Sadly, this fact is even ignored by many plus size women who dread their curvaceous figure and plunge themselves in gloom and self-pity. The truth is that plus-size women have all the right curves and a beautiful voluptuous body. It’s very easy for them to look sexy and gorgeous with a little fashion and the right makeup techniques. In fact, with lots of smile and the perfect makeup, they can easily look stunning and lovely. Here are some of my makeup techniques that I know will help any women out there.

Skin-tone Matching Foundation
Choose a foundation as closely matching your skin tone as possible. Otherwise, it will draw the attention to the roundness of your face and will look like a mask. Don’t go for a paste-like foundation and always buy such a product from a reputed brand.
Go For Matte Finish
The light is reflected more on plus-size, rounded cheeks and thus, such women should go for a matte effect, rather than a dewy one. In light, a dewy face gives the impression of sweating or having oily skin and emphasizes the roundness. Therefore, you should go for matte finish, which will complement your features and also last long.

Blush Should Compliment Hair & Skin
The purpose of corrective makeup should be to hide the flaws and complement the positives. A darker blush doesn’t give the appearance of slimmer face, rather gives the roundness away. Therefore, you need to apply a blush that complements your tresses and skin and doesn’t look artificial. Applying it in a right way is also essential. Use it on the apple of your cheeks, with even strokes.
No Heavy Application Of Shadows & Liners
Although playing with the eyes is not a bad idea, heavy application of eye makeup is something to be refrained from. The idea is again to compliment the face and accentuate the beauty of the eyes. Apply a small line of eyeliner on the upper as well as lower lids but don’t apply it all the way across the eyes. The eye shadows should complement the dress. Neutral eye makeup is the best bet for plus size women.
Apply Dark Lipstick
A nice dark lipstick that matches the occasion and your skin tone will easily draw attention away from the roundness of the cheeks and other flaws. Don’t go for neutral shades, as they give a plain effect and draw attention to the fuller face. You can also go for a glossy color, with sparkle.
Have Nicely Shaped Eyebrows
Instead of going for a rounded shape, go for straight, sharper edges to give a slimming illusion to the face. However, you should never opt for very skinny brows, as they make the face look too full.
No Garish Colors
Flashy makeup doesn’t look good on anyone and the plus size women are no exception to this rule. Anything that looks bad on a regular size woman will get exaggerated on a plus-size woman. So, they should steer clear of gaudy make up on all occasions.
Clever Makeup Techniques
Cleverly applied makeup has the ability to hide your flaws and accentuate your plus points. Define your cheekbones with a little bronzer, starting from the temple. Move towards the cheek and then go down the jaw line, moving in an inward letter-three position. Apply the bronzer again, to hide your double chin carefully. If your nose is big, you can give it a slimmer appearance by applying a darker tone of foundation on each side of the nose.
Hope my tips help all of you!
Here is a picture of my face from the other night. So, you guys know how I look with makeup.

Dressing Tips for Plus Size Women

Maintaining a professional and well put-together appearance starts with keeping a wardrobe of flattering clothing. Choosing pieces that flatter your body shape, complexion and features are essential to dress yourself fittingly. If you are a plus-sized individual like me, you may find that choosing appropriate clothing can be a difficult task. Clothing tends to be geared toward slim figures, which often does not translate well on fuller bodies. By learning what works for your body and what is not flattering, you can ensure you look your best.

Dark Colors


Dark colors such as black, navy blue, dark gray or brown are generally flattering for plus-size women. A monotone ensemble can create a slimming effect. Complement your outfit with bright shoes for a splash of color that also draws the eyes away from any problem areas. If you do not want to wear an outfit that consists of only one color, try wearing dark pants with a light top. This will draw attention upward from your legs and help create a leaner appearance.

Patterns and Prints


Experiment with patterns and prints to find designs that flatter your size. Generally, big prints with lots of empty space are unflattering for plus-size women. Small patterns with minimal space between prints can draw attention away from a plus-size body. Try on patterned pieces to determine what works for you. Pair a printed shirt with solid pants or skirt to balance your outfit.

Vertical Stripes



Vertical stripes trick the eyes and make you appear taller, which is also effective in creating a slimmer silhouette. Small pinstripes in slacks make your legs appear longer and leaner. Small vertical stripes in tops have a similar affect on the torso. Wear vertical stripes in your problem areas to diminish the appearance of a bulge. Choose small stripes since thick stripes can be too distracting and unsuccessful at creating a leaner appearance. Horizontal stripes should be avoided, since they create a wider appearance. Horizontal stripes accentuate a person's girth. 

Dress for Your Size

 Clothes that don't Fit


When trying on or purchasing clothing, look for pieces that fit your current size. Clothes that are too tight or cling to your body will accentuate problem areas, such as the belly, arms or thighs. Small clothing is also uncomfortable and usually requires readjustment throughout the day. Conversely, clothing that is too baggy or loose can make you appear larger. This is because your shape is lost in the clothing. Choosing tailored pieces that fit your body can accentuate your features without making you appear larger.
Do not purchase smaller pieces in hopes they will fit six months from now; you still need clothing to wear in the interim. This can be a challenging process since it will force you to accept yourself as you are today. Becoming comfortable with your current size and shape is crucial if you want to choose clothing that fits you well.
 Perfect Fit

Hope you guys enjoy the Post.
See you all soon!

Tips to Wear Leggings even if you are Plus Size

Tips to Wear Leggings even if you are Plus Size


Leggings have roared back into fashion, becoming a staple for the fall and winter. They're not just for the slim and slender; you can wear leggings if you wear a plus size. Choosing the leggings well and accessorizing them smartly will keep you looking hip without looking hippy.

1    Choose leggings in dark colors and thick fabric. The dark colors are slimming, and the thick fabric will give your legs a smooth look. Buy leggings with a bit of stretch for comfort. Avoid prints.

2    Wear a dress or tunic that reaches at least to your mid-thigh. Wear leggings as you would tights -- with your derriere covered. Knee-length is flattering on any size and height.

3    Wear flats or knee-high boots. Flats look casual yet put-together, and knee-high boots will keep your legs warm. Avoid high heels; they can look tacky with leggings.

4    Accessorize your outfit with a belt to cinch in and show off your waist.

9 Tips for Plus Size Pregnant Women

If you're overweight, pregnancy can be challenging because you're prone to complications such as gestational diabetes -- especially if you gain too much. But don't fear! Here are some simple and easy ideas to help keep you on track.

Target Your Weight Gain Accordingly

Keep in mind that weight gain doesn't have to start until the second trimester. Then you should gain only two to three pounds a month -- 15 to 20 pounds total.

Eat Healthy, High-Protein Snacks

Try a mini whole-wheat bagel with peanut butter.

Drink 8 to 10 Glasses of Water Daily

Staying hydrated will curb your appetite and help you eat less.

Shoot for 25 to 30 grams of Fiber Daily.

High-fiber cereal and whole grains will fill you up

Eat Regular Meals

Stick to breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks. Take in 1,800 to 2,400 calories a day (which may be less than what you're eating now). Erratic eating habits often contribute to weight gain.

Keep a Food Diary

You can consult the diary, along with your doctor or nutritionist, to see what modifications to make (such as reducing portion size) if you're gaining too much or not gaining enough.

Avoid Juices & Sweet Beverages

These are packed with calories. Drink only nonfat milk, water, or unsweetened beverages.

Avoid Simple Sugars

Choose complex carbohydrates, such as whole-grain breads and cereals, fruits, and vegetables.

Get Some Exercise

Even just walking, for at least 15 minutes a day, can make a difference.

Have a Healthy Pregnancy!
