Here’s the last post about plus size bodies, the inverted triangle also known as “carrot”.
Main guidelines are in the first post Inverted Triangle Body Shape I’m just going to add extra advices to that.
Plus size women of this category has the extra fat mostly concentrated in the upper part of their body: chubby shoulders, very large breast and baby bump look like belly (it means it starts from the upper abdomen and ends at the inguinal level), subtle waistline, almost flat butt with a narrow pelvis and slim legs.
What we need to do here is to enlarge and enfatize the lower part of your body, trying to create a full and round butt, creating a waistline and to shrink the upper part reducing shoulders and chest.
Your tops then should preferably be monochromatic, without decorations or anything that gives volume to your shoulders, no pom-poms/rouches/trims/bows or any kind of decoration at your bust level because this would enlarged it even more while we’re trying to make it narrower. The best choice then are basic and minimal tops, without particular patterns and off the shoulders. Be sure the bottom hem is flared or a peplum one. If you fancy crop-tops match them with an high waist and flared bottom piece.
Never forget two “rules”:
1- your top or shirt should be darker then your skirt or trousers
2- if your top is a loose one, wear a flared bottom piece too.
You have very nice leg, show them off!
If you love long skirts, prefer flared ones.
You can pick very decorated and coloured skirts or trousers, while doing the opposite for your tops that should be following the adage “less is more”.
Flared trousers and jeans, bootcut (they will also provide a super hot bum), straight and look for Daisy Dukes short pants.
Overalls and dresses, as you can already imagine at this point, should be simple on the top part and flared on the bottom, nothing voluminous on the shoulder level but rather at the bottom. If you’re wearing a tight top, wear something loose for the bottom. Peplum models can help to hide your belly letting you feel more comfortable. Remeber that the waist line should be a regular one, absolutely avoid high waist dresses.
Jackets and coats lenght should be preferably up to your waist or the knees, above them is fine but not over your knees. They should also be waisted (not too much) and “puffed” from the waist down. Even asymmetrical coats are great. At last, avoid double breasted coats as they tend to enlarge your bust.
Last point on the list it’s swimwear: prefer high waist briefs, like control briefs, because they donate natural volume and roundness; for the bra instead remember less is more. Rouches and trims are a go if they create a narrower waistline.
