Feel Cool with a Plus Size Shrug
Irrespective of our diverse body sizes and shapes, everybody has the right to look trendy by wearing the best fashion they can afford. However, there was a time when plus size women found it hard to get a variety of ready-to-wear garment styles at clothing stores. And if it was something like a shrug, our very popular sweater accessory, it was even more difficult to grab a well fitted and stylish plus size shrug made to boost plus size womanly curves.
However, clothing lines realised a market opportunity from this segment and started designing garments including plus size shrugs. The plus size market segment proved to be profitable for most fashion designers and clothing manufacturers as more styles and fashions were made for this market. Plus size shrugs found their way into shopping malls, clothing line outlets and internet sites. Plus size women can now walk into a clothing store and select a shrug of their specifications, and look good.
Perhaps the biggest benefit that has kept a shrug on the shelves is that the wearer gets more warmth without sacrificing on their style. More often, during chilly winter, clothing designed to keep warm are nothing near style and fashion. But shrugs allow a lady to keep warm and be stylish during this chilly season.
Another great feature associated with shrugs is that they are made in a way that they can be worn with almost anything. You can wear your plus size shrug with any blouse or top of your choice and look cool. This is a special feature attributed to shrugs. A natural coloured shrug should go with any colour of dress.
Depending on the shape of your body and personal taste, there are many types of plus size shrugs that you can choose from at the clothing outlet. The following is a brief description of some body-shape-specific styles for consideration:
The Hourglass: This is for women that have an overall curvy shape with bust and hips having almost the same width. It fits well for a well-defined waist, at least seven inches thinner than the hips. Go for a tie waist shrug to boost your perfect curves.
The Pear: This shape is defined by hips and thighs that are wider than bust line and shoulders. Women with this type of shape often store most of their weight in their buttocks and thighs. Wear a shrug to boost your upper part of the body. It should end to hip line to make the bottom part look leaner and longer as well.
The Rectangle: This is defined by a relatively straight body from up to down with a small bust and little waist definition.
The Apple: women with this shape often carry most of their weight in their bust, back and waist, but have slim hips and legs. Because of this distribution of weight, a lady with this shape will have a top-heavy appearance. Wera a free flowing shrug that skims overs your curve.
