Full-Figure Fashion Tips To Flatter

(NAPSI)-Full-figured women have more fashion options than ever before with a variety of styles that fit, flatter and flaunt their most attractive features.

Here are a few fashion tips to help from the bra experts at Olga:

• Focus on your best attributes. If you have a small waist, wear a belt. Use bold color to define your favorite features.

• Think long. Wear clothing that elongates you, such as V-neck tops. Wear heels, perhaps with a kitten shape for comfort, rather than flats.

• Wear the right undergarments. The right bra is an everyday essential, creating a feminine shape under your wardrobe and helping some clothing fit better.

For example, a white button-down shirt is a basic staple for every wardrobe. Wearing this type of shirt can be a challenge for a full-figured woman because if she is not wearing the proper bra, the shirt buttons may pop open.

You can use a white button-down shirt to test if you are wearing the right bra. If you are, the shirt will lie flat against the body; you'll have great shape and feel contained without any spillage. No buttons will pop.

Another perennial fashion staple is the snug T-shirt. For this look, you want a bra that provides a smooth look with no bumps. A bra with satin cups and an inner lining will look great and be comfortable to wear.

Look for a bra that fits well and does not chafe or irritate your skin. If you don't like the way underwire bras feel, you no longer need to wear them.

Many full-figured women may be surprised to learn that now they can get all the support of an underwire bra without the wires.

Olga has a line of wire-free bras exclusively for full-figured women that deliver the same support as those with an underwire.

Because comfort is very important, when shopping for a bra, look for a soft-seal hook and eye closures to eliminate digging and skin irritation.

But while you're shopping for comfort, don't forget to look for lace and other luxurious details such as satin trims to help you feel gorgeous.

• Once you've built a great foundation, accessorize. Play up your beautiful face with sparkling earrings and chunky necklaces.
