Bluesuits Tropical Wool Stretch Business Suit for Plus Size Women


This week we will feature several business suits from Bluesuits Collection for Plus Size women to include various styles that would fit the various women’s plus size shapes along with a few style tips.

Style Tips for Plus Size Women
1. Look 10 pounds slimmer by wearing a supportive bra.
The key to looking your best in a business suit is what you wear under your suit. Get professionally measured and find out what size bra you should wear. If your bra size falls between a 32D- 44H, consider Le Mystere’s Dream Tisha Bra or Dream Tisha Lace. Wearing the right style bra can make you look 10 pounds slimmer.
2. Go for a tailored and fitted suit.
Wearing a suit that fits your shape will make you look slimmer and proportionate. Avoid wearing baggy clothes.
3. 3-button jackets or jackets that button up high are preferred as they contain the bust.
4. Avoid a line skirts
Pencil skirts or kick pleat skirts will look great on you. If they are cut right no matter how wide your hip is or how pear shaped you are they will fit you.
5. Choose business suits in fabrics that have some body
Usually 270grams or higher are best for suiting. For example wool crepes, double faced wools or tropical wools are best. Heavier weight fabrics will hold better on a fuller body. We specially love double faced wool crepes and Tropical Wool Stretch. We highly recommend wool stretch for fitted business suits. Your suit will fit a lot better and you will be mush more comfortable moving around in a fitted suit.
6. Add a Pinstripe business suit to your work wardrobe. Vertical stripes will make you look taller and slimmer. Avoid horizontal stripes.
