You can dress great if you’re fat by choosing flattering, well-fitting clothes. For example, avoid oversized garments and tent dress that only make you look bigger. Instead, wear nice-fitting boot cut jeans or pencil skirts, which both make your hips and thighs look more proportionate. When it comes to dresses, try wearing A-line or Empire style dresses which accentuate your curves while camouflaging your tummy and thighs.

Additionally, situate your belt at waist level, and not below your belly, since this will just make your stomach more pronounced. To learn how to wear the right clothing materials, read on!
