Plus-size fashion: You need these summer 2022 essentials
For curvy women: where to shop 7 essentials
Tops, Blouses & Co.: Plus Size Women’s Tops
In principle, tops that are flared below the chest, fall loosely and do not fit the stomach area are useful. This makes the upper body look tighter, while the lower body is airy. If you have a lush bust size, you can flaunt it with confidence. This stretches the neck, emphasizes the chest area and at the same time distracts from other parts of the body. Likewise, a simple, loose-fitting blouse that we found at Zalando from 14.99 euros. It has a V-neckline that accentuates the cleavage, but falls loosely below the bust, thus hiding the stomach and hips.

Ankle-Length Pants for Plus Size Women
A loose leg width that is not too tight around the thighs is perfect for curvy women. Pants that are not too long, but make the ankles visible, look especially beautiful – this optically stretches the legs. Culottes or loose pants with wide legs are ideal, especially in summer. In addition, dark and muted colors make you look tighter, while light colors can be applied quickly. At Zalando we found a black model from Sheego for €49.99 that sits loosely and exposes part of the ankle through small slits at the bottom of the pant legs, making the legs look longer.

Plus Size Dresses: Accentuate the neckline and waist
Ideally, the perfect dress should highlight your feminine silhouette and hide unwanted love handles. At the same time, you should feel comfortable – nothing should be tight or too tight. Dresses that have a seam below the bust look great, because the narrower part is emphasized, while the cut around the stomach can still be looser. This is also the case with the rockabilly dress, which is available in 27 different colors from 19.99 euros on Amazon. The design features a cleavage-enhancing V-neckline and a cutout at the waist, with the hem wide open below the waist and concealing the love handles.

Plus Size: bra for plus size
There are some manufacturers that offer bras for large bust sizes or even specialize in them. With large breasts, the cut and fit are particularly important, as the bra should mainly have a supportive effect and thus can prevent back and neck pain. When it comes to bras, fit is extremely important. So we found a comfortable model with wide straps for large sizes from 75B to 115I on Amazon, which is available from 36.10 euros.

Cute linen fashion for plus size women
No other material is summer-friendly like airy linen: whether it’s a top, slacks or a dress – the fabric is ideal for warm temperatures and really gets you in the mood for the summer months. Linen is particularly breathable and has a cooling effect on the skin. This way you don’t sweat as quickly. The summer dress in refreshing lime green, which consists of 55% linen and is available from Zalando from €49.99, is perfect for example for plus size women. Thanks to the deep V neckline, the dress emphasizes the cleavage of its wearer. Since the dress falls loosely below the bust, it perfectly hides small plus size love handles.

Plus size midi skirt
Is the midi skirt only suitable for thin and tall women? Not at all! Calf-length skirts also look great on curvy women if you pair them right. Your legs will look longer if you wear flat heels instead of closed sneakers. If the skirt is a bit flared at the bottom, it’s best to pair it with a slimmer cut top. The midi skirt, which we found on AboutYou from €39.90, comes in a summery shade of cranberry and is knee-length. Thanks to the airy and loose cut, it is perfect for hot temperatures.
Shirt dresses for plus size women
Shirt dresses always work! Whether in the office, for a walk around town or for a dinner party – you can never go wrong with a blouse and dress combination. The dress can be changed thanks to the buttons on the neckline and you can freely decide how open you want to wear it. Paired with cute sneakers and a denim jacket, you style the look casually, if you switch to nice strappy sandals and a blazer, you’re perfectly dressed for the evening. For summer, we’ve found a particularly lovely example in purple from €49.99 at Zalando, which reaches to the knees and falls loosely.
