Tops are women’s daily needs, and a plus size top has the dual task of making you feel comfortable as well as create a unique look doing full justice to your curves. A plus size top need to provide enough coverage to a large lady, concealing all the unwanted bits and revealing the best of her features.
There are wide varieties of plus size tops and t-shirts available these days. You can choose anything from a plain top or t-shirt, to printed tunics. There are variations in sleeve length, length of the top, colour, style, prints. You can choose tops for everyday wearing or for any special occasion.
But what exactly will suit your style? The answer is very much dependant on one’s body type, and when and where she will be wearing it.
Apple shape: An apple shape body type should make sure that the top is not too tight around the mid section. Empire line tunic tops go very well with this body type as they are fitted around bust, and free flowing below bust line. Do not go for tops with horizontal stripes, as they only make your mid section look bigger.
Pear shape: Pear shaped body type always needs to create a balance between their smaller top part and wider hip area. So go for tops with fitted neckline, and with buttons or ties or even lace details around the neckline. Tops with puffed sleeves can be good as well. Idea is to draw others attention away from your heavier hip area.
Hourglass shape: Tops with scooped or V Necks work very well with this type of body shape. As their body shape is very well proportionate, with a defined waistline, wrap tops or top with a waist tie will help to accentuate their curves. Long fitted tops hugging your curves will suit you very well as well.
Remember, whatever your body shape is; your plus size top should skim along your curves for a smooth contour. Stay away from baggy tops, as they will make you look even bigger.
