Best holiday packing tips for plus size women
While the summer may be drawing to a close in the UK, theres still plenty of sun to be seen elsewhere. And, for the lucky ladies who still have a holiday to look forward to, there are the inevitable packing dilemmas.
Selecting which plus size dresses, beachwear and eveningwear to take for your sojourn depends firstly on location. Swimsuits are essential for a sunshine getaway, but remember to pack for all occasions – kaftans and flip-flops might not be the best choice for a romantic meal in a fancy restaurant! Similarly, if it gets cooler in the evenings, you may want to cover up a little more than during the day, meaning that light fabrics you can layer are ideal.
The key to keeping your holiday look fresh and on-trend, as well as staying within your baggage allowance, is a capsule wardrobe approach. Choose key items that will work well in a number of combinations. Three coordinating mix and match tankini sets will give you six different looks. A sheer leopard print dress can be thrown over your swimwear with a pair of denim shorts for the day, while a pair of linen trousers and embellished gladiator sandals make it perfect for a night of cocktails at the bar.
Dressing for your shape is essential in all circumstances – especially on holiday. If youre struggling to find the perfect choice of swimsuit, there are some foolproof tips to remember.
For those of you who are smaller on top, ruffles, frills and fringes are perfect for making your chest look fuller and balancing out your figure. If youre concerned about your stomach, a belted one-piece swimsuit with a belt will cinch in your waist. Alternatively, tankinis give the freedom of a bikini, but with extra coverage for comfort. Bustier ladies should choose tops with an underwire or thick, supportive band to feel more secure.
In terms of trends, think colour and prints. Neons look amazing with a tan and can be worn as either a discreet flash or head-to-toe. Pretty florals translate from delicate, vintage-inspired patterns to bolder, contemporary designs. Geometric patterns, such as stripes, are perfect for achieving a nautical look. And animal prints are always a hit on the beach.
Remember that feeling comfortable and confident in what youre wearing will always help you look your best.
