How To Choose Tank Tops for Plus Size Women

Most plus size women have the frustration of not being able to wear clothes that are in fashion or sexy looking. Well this should not be so. If you know how to play with pieces of clothes, styles, prints, colors and fabrics then you can go and have the fun of wearing swimsuits, camisoles and tank tops.

Clothes should give emphasis and flattery to your good features. They also help in concealing portions of the body that are distracting, like a too big bust size, big arms and big midsection. These problem areas are common to plus size women. Most plus-size women have an "apple" shape figure. They have a shapely figure that is thick throughout the middle and usually they have full busts, thick midsections and slimmer hips and legs.

Choose clothing styles that highlight your best features and hide the ones you don't like. Clothes not tailored for your figure are going to make your body appear larger than it really is. It is advisable to get tank tops with built in bra, as they give a more seamless and smoother look even if you have to wear a bra underneath.  Tank tops that have seams directly under the bust line also help to create support and are visually appealing. Other plus size tank tops have a princess seam from the shoulder to reduce the amount of fabric under the armhole. 

Plus size women look best in A-line and empire or baby doll styles. Baby doll tops are similar to the A shaped dresses that have a waistline under the breast. They hide the stomach and bulges, give one a slimmer overall look. They hide all of your bulges and highlight your good curves. Halters are also good for hiding the stomach and waistline. These shirts should be worn by small-breasted women only. Camisoles and tank tops can be worn by themselves or worn under jackets. You must be careful to wear the right type of bra when wearing these tops. V-neck shirts, on the other hand, bring attention to your face, neck and cleavage.

Black for tank tops is not the color that gives the most slimming effect on plus size women. A nice get up depends primarily on proportion and overall look. You could try monotone or colored outfits to divert attention to your face instead of drawing attention to your figure. You could also try to layer light fabrics to add some height to your midsection. These will give you a shapelier figure and will conceal your bulges. Use fabrics like jersey, organic rayon and cotton that will fall nicely over the curves of your waist and not make any problem areas stand out.

Camisoles are thin and usually come with pretty trimmings, such as beads, scallops, lace, or some appliqués. These beadworks and other designs along the top give a very pleasing effect when topped with a jacket, bolero or coat.

Plus size women can also look good with the proper choice of tank tops and other clothes. They just have to know what to wear and how to carry themselves, choose well and dress up with clothes that will accentuate their assets in order to feel good inside and out.
