Is It Safe To Wear A Pleated Skirt?

Skirts Can Make --- Or Break --- Your Overall Look

Skirts can really flatter a plus-sized shape. From a funky denim skirt to a feminine, flirty full-length floral, the variety of skirt styles for plus-sizes are endless. There are, however, a few skirt tips to keep in mind:

  • Repeat after me: No pleats….ever. Pleats rarely look flattering on full figures. They make you look wider and in most cases have no style value for the plus-size woman.
  • Pencil skirts are a wonderful addition to the market and look good on all full figures. They are narrow from the hips to right above or below your knee. They have a slimming quality, but make your best lower body curves really stand out. As an added bonus: all legs look great in the right pencil skirt!
  • Long length flared skirts are another plus-sized “don't.” They make you look bigger and they break up the lines of your outfit that make you look streamlined and smooth with an unsightly flare at the bottom.
