Women’s Fashion: How to find clothes when you’re curvy.

I have often spoken to you here of my desire to celebrate all women, their beauty; to accompany them in the process of self-acceptance and / or to sublimate them just for a moment. Now, with “fashion with purpose”, I have the pleasure to present you “all in shape”, an ode to women with voluptuous shapes.
To accompany me in this section, great is my joy to introduce you to Lucy. A young woman, met through Lydvina and with whom it immediately stuck. Hard to be otherwise: she agreed to play the doll by letting me dress as I wanted.
The stars were all aligned. However, although enthusiastic by going to the assault shops, I quickly faced difficulties: sizes, cuts, style … hard to find things that were going. Often too much, sometimes not enough, the choice left me, a little drunk I must admit. Shopping, however, a pleasure, slowly turned into a chore; but then how to find clothes in the department stores when one is voluptuous?

To prepare this shot as often, if I knew exactly what feeling I wanted to cause Lucy (after the surprise of course), I was quite open to the pieces I was looking for. I quickly felt that the universe conspired against me, even in brands that boast large sizes, impossible to find the right size in the pieces that had caught my attention.

Worse, this impression that passed the 42, there was little case of finesse, cuts, simplicity. Failure is not an option, after hours of research and the height of despair I ended up finding some good old tricks that have been proven.

On the cuts we do not compromise.

If the cut does not flatter the silhouette, so do not get dressed. The difficulty in the large rays lies in finding the right room without adding superfluity. One oscillates between the blouse without shape sad at wish, and the blouse supposed to be “mode” and “tendency”, in a dubious matter, with useless details like two big pockets with flaps on the chest. What discourage the most courageous. It is a matter of redoubled vigilance and patience and not to give in and end up taking what is wrong. I ended up with the perfect pants at Primark and Lucy was delighted.
I can not say it enough, a well-cut garment is the basis of everything.

The men’s shelves will become allies.

As long as one has shoulders, a few forms, find a classic shirt in the women’s shelves is the course of the fighter. I have always used men’s shirts and, once again, I have not been disappointed.
Do not hesitate to look on that side for pants too: the chinos for men are the best friends of the woman but hush it’s a secret.

Shoes and accessories, special attention you will wear.

Should we really say more?

Being beautiful, good in one’s body and in one’s sneakers is not always easy, especially when one does not have the physical cover of magazines and Instagram models. So one piece at a time, one day after another, you build your confidence by not showing off as the trends require but in its own way. And do not forget: think, apply, moderate.
