Even skinny women love towear cute, casual, bohemian, peasant-style clothing.Back in the day, the late 60s to be exact, hippiesdiscouraged their friends from judging a person basedupon his or her appearance. The true hippie mantraback then was, “It’s what’s 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 benonjudgmental about clothing, weight, nose shape,cheekbones, hair—as long as it was long—ethnicity,and all that superficial stuff. Hippies certainly didn’t give a damn about “designer bags.”True hippies commonly described heavyset women as “Earth Mother” types. Actually, if a plussize woman ever said anything deprecating about her own weight, there was always some guy inthe group who would say, “Hey mama, I really like your peaches. I wanna shake your tree,” witha 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 arediscouraged by our society’s norms. Or there probably are men out there who really prefer plussize 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 you’ve had too many milkshakes, and it will also fityou 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, becareful not to buy shiny fabrics because shine will highlight every little hump and bulge. Anypatterned, matte maxi dress will give you good camouflage for fat bulges. Although, some shinydresses are so beautiful that theyre worth a try.
If it can be avoided, do not get a dress with a zip. Because usually, the fabric of zippered dresseshas very little stretch, and who wants that? The point is comfort, plus size ladies. On the otherhand, gauze is also a good fabric if the cut is comfortable. And, somehow, soft ethnic styles justseem to look better on curvy females than on skinny twigs.
