Clothes are one of the most stressful things that most people have to think about almost every single day. What do you wear to work? What kind of clothes do you buy? What kind of clothes are in style now? What kind of clothes actually suit you? These are questions that all of us face on a daily basis. It is not just about being dressed well or even appropriately. Clothes are important as they announce to the world a lot about us and to most people are an indicator of our personality even before we walk up to them and open our mouths.
For this reason clothes are something that we stress about a whole lot. Women in fact stress about clothing a whole lot more than men because until recently it was women that gave a lot more importance to how they dressed and how they looked than men did. The balance may have shifted in the past decade or so with the advent of a new kind of animal known in popular culture as the metro sexual man. But the balance is still heavily in women’s favour when it comes to the time, energy and money spent on clothing and accessories.
The problem for a lot of women when it comes to clothing though is that they do not have the kind of bodies that one sees on the covers of fashion magazines or on the catwalks of fashion shows around the world. The first truth about fashion is that while clothes are modelled mostly by teenage girls who have the figures of young boys, they are actually bought and worn by adult women who have the figure of well, women. The fashion industry has coined a euphemism for clothes that actually fit the sizes and shapes that real women have, plus sized clothes.
Anyone who has a body must be familiar with this term. The hard part is that even though this kind of clothing exists it is hugely difficult to find in practice. Try to find great plus size dresses in your local department stores or malls and you will either come up empty handed or with the most frumpy and ugly clothes you could ever have imagined. The internet has the solution for plus sized women and if you go online there are speciality stores that store nothing but plus sized dresses and plus sized clothes in tons of styles.
