How To Choose a Blouse That Will Flatter Your Figure

September 6, 2017 by SHEfinds Editors

When are jeans not just jeans? When you pair them with a pretty blouse. Please note: a blouse is not a t-shirt. It;s a top that is made of fine material and has nice design and detail. But t-shirts are so comfortable, you say. We respond: No one ever said a blouse was uncomfortable! It’s just a way to refine your appearance and make you feel good about yourself. Full figured women benefit from pieces that provide structure. Consider wearing a blazer or jacket with seams and darts that give you shape with each of these blouses.

Peplum Blouse

Think of a peplum blouse as a fit and flare dress that doesn’t require stockings. The bodice is fitted through the waist and then it flares out in a pretty ruffle that meets your hips. So it’s like a blouse with a little extra excitement that balances out your figure. Try a peplum blouse with a pencil skirt and pumps for a classic outfit.

Tunic Blouse

Side vents. You need side vents. A tunic is a long, loose fitting blouse in a light and airy material that has movement. It won’t cling to your lumps and bumps. The addition of side vents keeps the plus size tunic moving and gives your hips room to move freely. Pair with skinny jeans or leggings. Simple flats and a small pendant necklace complete the look.

Open Collar Blouse

Wear this open collar blouse two ways. First, don’t button the blouse, just use it like a jacket over a simple fitted t-shirt. Second, use the buttons and the structure from the seaming and darts to create an hourglass figure. Roll up the sleeves to just below the elbow and wear a fun bracelet. Use the skin revealed by the open collar to show off a fun bib necklace.

Ruched Blouse

Ruching is a woman’s best friend. The small gathers and folds are pretty and powerful camouflage. The ruched blouse keeps the eye moving (especially when the material also has a fun pattern) and prevents the top from clinging.

Peasant Blouse

With its wide, squared neckline, elaborate embroidery and full sleeve, the peasant blouse is on trend. It’s feminine, airy and bohemian. But peasant blouses lack the structure that a full figured woman needs. This is when you must layer on a structured denim jacket or fitted cardigan.
