While floor-length dresses are all the rage, go for frocks with above-knee lengths. This can help you balance out your figure, so you won’t look like a small, chubby girl covered in miles and miles of fabric.
Choose a V-neck dress to elongate your torso.

Buy a halter-style plus size summer dress because it can show off your beautiful arms and shoulders.

Dresses that fit your chest and upper waist snugly are also good options, because they create a silhouette of a ‘tighter’ body. You can also go for a dress which hugs the curves of your best features (such as your hips or waist) so as to accentuate them.
Choose a  dress which will highlight your winning aspects. If you want to show your lovely bosoms, opt for a bandeau or halter-style summer frock.

Wear height-improving footwear (high heels) as often as possible. These sky-high shoes might be uncomfortable, but it elongates your legs, and makes you look taller and slimmer. If you can’t stand on stilettos all night long, the best alternative is wedge sandals.

Simple is great! Avoid the mistake of wearing clothes, bags and shoes with large and loud prints. Look sophisticated (and slimmer!) by wearing solid color shoes and bags.


Skip summer dresses  for curvy women with spaghetti straps as they can make your upper body look bigger.

Choose plus size summer dresses made of flowy fabric, instead of skin-hugging ones which will make you look heftier than usual.
