Types of Belts for Clothes

Belt is your best friend, which helps you to highlight the body at its narrowest and makes you look less out. The waist is the place on the narrowest part of the body, where you need to put your belt, so you define your forms rather than hide them.

Now I have found out that the narrowest point is just below the bust. It makes a tremendous difference to my figure. A right belt will give new life to several dresses.

1. Narrow belts
A narrow belt is best to decorate or create color contrast on an upper, which already has a marked waistline or incision as cheap accessories. You can use them to mark a waist in clothes, which are easily drowned in longitudinal wrinkles around the belt.

2. Wide belts

A wide belt is best to mark the waist. Strap width not only just marks but also shows your waist, and it does not drown in the wrinkles. A large buckle attracts attention to your stomach. If you want to avoid this, you can choose the strap that the buckle is sitting in the back.

3. Wide tie belt
A tie belt is popular. It fits the most occasions when the stomach is a bit inflated. And it works as a nice little detail on the overall outfit.

Wrap-around Dress Online

I call this type of dress for the false wrap-around. It is “false” because it is a traditional dress that the top and bottom are connected.

But you have benefits from the traditional wrap-around dress: V-carving, which opens your upper body, and makes you sight higher visually. The selection of your waist highlights your forms rather than hide your entire body. You don’t have to unnecessarily attract attention to the abdomen or hips when you bind the wrap-around dress. You can even choose the belt that will mark the waist. Wear the dress everyday with a pair of thick socks and flat shoes, or give extra gas to the party with a flashy necklace.

The Skirt I Love

I fall in love with this skirt at the first sight when I saw this skirt. Stripes and solid waist make this skirt perfectly. This skirt is extremely suitable for women who want to highlight the waist by putting down in the bottoms uppers.

I literally danced by enthusiasm, as the package with the skirt was delivered to my work. I quickly tried the dress on the toilet and the enthusiasm was not less.

I came home and could comfortably throw the critical look in the mirror at me and my new skirt. Do you want to emphasize your figure in the best possible way? You may want to let the skirt/shorts/dress finish on your legs, where it is at its narrowest. It will typically be just below the knee. Thus, this skirt is simply too short for me. It is not the right fit. The calves are cut in such a way that it makes my stomach/hip region to appear much wider than it really is.

Panel Dress Perfect for Plumpy Body

Panel dress is like a magic art. It is created for the perfect illusion that make you appear taller and narrower around the hips.

And now panel dress is so fine to the plumpy body. It is not a regular part of the miscellaneous plus-collections. In fact it is more luck than sense, when you’re lucky to find a panel dress. The model above is also available with panel dresses. And here’s what else I just could find by panel dresses: striped panel with short sleeves, striped panel with long sleeves.
