Plus Size Jumpers and Cardigans
Jumpers and cardigans become women's best friend in cold and chilly weather. It was a shame that for many many years, large ladies thought plus size jumpers and cardigans as oversized and most unattractive piece of garment. But things have changed already. Designers and retailers now take special interest in plus size apparel. Thus, our beloved sisters can now choose from a wide variety of plus size jumpers and cardigans. They come in various brands, material, styles and shapes as well as colours. Their sizes range from 1X to 4X. The most common shapes include the waterfall cardigans, warm long line cardigans and other traditional shapes. The super soft and fine knit varieties do cater for everyday wear and are best worn with leggings and on tunics.
A plus size jumper and cardigan is capable of complementing any outfit.They not only provide warmth, but also add a layer of style.
The latest collection of the plus size jumpers and cardigans ranges from bright and fun types all the way to the elegant, sophisticated and flattering types. Getting the right jumper and cardigan that matches the body shape is also very important. Most of the plus size women fashion is designed to suit specific shapes such as straight, pear, hour glass and full burst.
Straight shape: These ladies have little definition in their hip, waist and bust measurements. To define their waist for a curvier figure, the waist can be defined by wearing fitted jumpers and cardigans with belts, or ties across the midriff.
Pear shape: Ladies with fuller bottom and hips but a smaller top are said to be pears in shape. The fastest way to dress this body is accentuating the top half in order to draw attention upwards. Thus a plus size jumper or cardigan with a broad face-framing collar is the way to go. Bright colours will add an extra mark as well.
Hour glass shape: These have a well defined waist and a full bust as well as hips. Ladies with this body shape should embrace their curves with classic and wrapped cardigans. A jumper or cardigan with a lower neckline such as a V, U, scoop or surplice keeps the top balanced and not too heavy. A well fitting cardigan with a waist nipped in or a shaped jumper can help define favourite curves.
Apple shape: For these ladies, the waist is less defined since they are heaviest around the middle part of the body. The best cardigans and jumpers for them should be swing, empire waists and trapeze shaped. With cardigans that have detailed necklines, the ladies can emphasize the curves they like most by drawing attention away from the waist.
Full bust shapes: Ladies with this kind of shape have a fuller bust compared to the hips and bottom. Cardigans and jumpers with a slightly lowered neckline can help the ladies keep their look in balance. Dark printed and solid coloured jumpers as well as cardigans can help pull a great balanced look.
