I have always suspected that there are tens of thousands of women in the world who hate their bodies. Writing this blog has confirmed my belief, if not my estimate of numbers, and I feel that it's my personal mission to do everything in my power to help those women embrace their gorgeous...

Plus sized women should avoid wearing boxy, loose-fitting maxi dresses. Instead, choose a dress that hugs your body, preferably one with a v-neckline. V-necks help create a lean line, and will draw the eye up and away from a larger bottom half. To compliment your upper body, choose a dress...
