There are three things to keep in mind in the skinny section:
- You want to pay attention to the cut of the clothing. When you’re in the skinny section, skip anything that’s tight. Instead, look for wide cut dresses with swing/trapeze cuts.
- Fabric is important. Stiff fabrics won’t help us, but knits, cottons, and stretchy fabrics will
- Look at your body! It took me years to figure out that even though I have a belly my waist area is significantly smaller than my hips. This is partly why I can try on a dress that’s technically half my size, but it still fits
I put these rules to practice each time I do a loop in the skinny section. But just to show you how many options we have, I decided to do a little experiment and take my camera into the most ridiculous, non-plus size friendly store I could think of.
Express goes up to a size Large and a 12… sometimes. So, I went shopping there for my experiment… take a look and leave your comments below
