Basic Instinct: “MUST Haves” in every plus size woman’s closet!
Make sure you have many cotton under garments because they’ll keep you cool, dry, and comfortable. I have 10 plus size pairs of under garments because I do laundry on the weekends, so I have enough for every day of the week. Make sure you have one in a flesh tone color to wear under white pants/shorts, but you should have at least 3 whites and 3 blacks.
You should have at least five plus size bras that are a great fit. One of your bras should be for exercise, two for daily support, and two for super-support. I have both my daily support and super-support bras in black and the other in white.
You should always have at least one well-tailored plus size suit. Whether you choose a style with a skirt or pants, it should fit beautifully!
If you love to wear pants like me, you should always have at least five professional plus size pairs and seven casual plus size jeans– one for every day you go to work and seven for every day of the week. If you like to wear skirts to work, you can buy three plus size skirts and two plus size pants. In my opinion, clothes with dark colors for the bottom are the most flattering for plus size woman.
I have the most fun shopping for tops! Not only do I have a broad range of clothing options, but there are so many plus size styles to choose from! My advice to you is to get at least 15 must have plus size tops for each season. If you can't do 15, then choose at least 5 plus size tops. You should always have one sexy plus size top in black, one plus size white blouse, one flattering shirt in a bright color, and one comfortable striped shirt.
In case you didn't know, your best friends are clothes that don’t need to be dry cleaned!
Follow these plus size clothing guidelines and you'll have a wardrobe that is flattering to your plus size body when you have little time to spend. Whether you're a size 1x or 5x, you’ll benefit from these must have items! Now, take an inventory of your closet and go SHOPPING!
