Hippie dresses and boho (bohemian) chic maxi dresses are perfect for women a bit on the heavy side that are looking for trendy clothes which are comfortable to wear. Even skinny women love to wear cute, casual, bohemian, peasant-style clothing.
Back in the day, the late 60s to be exact, hippies discouraged their friends from judging a person based upon his or her appearance. The true hippie mantra back then was, Its whats inside that counts. Although, in the real world, it was, and still is, difficult to actually do this. People make snap, superficial judgments, whether we like it or not.
However, most hippies tried extremely hard to be nonjudgmental about clothing, weight, nose shape, cheekbones, hairas long as it was longethnicity, and all that superficial stuff. Hippies certainly didnt give a damn about designer bags.
True hippies commonly described heavyset women as Earth Mother types. Actually, if a plus size woman ever said anything deprecating about her own weight, there was always some guy in the group who would say, Hey mama, I really like your peaches. I wanna shake your tree, with a wink. And that meant that he finds the woman sexy and desirable.
In fact, there may be a lot of men who feel the same way about plus size women, but are discouraged by our societys norms. Or there probably are men out there who really prefer plus size women. Who knows?
Flattering hippie dresses are clothing perfection. Why? Because a good stretchy boho dress, without a tight waist, will fit you even after youve had too many milkshakes, and it will also fit you after your weight loss from a pre-summer diet blitz.
A stretchy maxi dress is usually an easy thing to buy online and get a good fit. However, be careful not to buy shiny fabrics because shine will highlight every little hump and bulge. Any patterned, matte maxi dress will give you good camouflage for fat bulges. Although, some shiny dresses are so beautiful that they’re worth a try.
If it can be avoided, do not get a dress with a zip. Because usually, the fabric of zippered dresses has very little stretch, and who wants that? The point is comfort, plus size ladies. On the other hand, gauze is also a good fabric if the cut is comfortable. And, somehow, soft ethnic styles just seem to look better on curvy females than on skinny twigs.
