In a world where fashion magazines are full of anorexic fashion models that look like they would topple over if you blew on them, larger ladies often don’t get the respect and admiration for their own true beauty. Just because a woman is larger in size doesn’t mean she’s not as hot, beautiful and sexy. The fashion industry need to take notice of the larger woman’s own unique beauty. More options need to be available so that plus size ladies who also have buying power can adorn themselves in all the queenly fashions they too deserve. Fortunately one segment of the fashion industry knows how to make a plus size women feel as wonderful as she so rightly deserves to and that’s the fur industry.
Let’s face it, most plus size women are sensual. They relish sensual pleasures be that fine food, music, art, scents or fine materials such as cashmere, silk or real fur. A plus size woman understands that nothing is going to be as luxuriously soft, creamy and warm as a fur coat against her skin or the skin of her significant other.
Plus size women also love how forgiving a fur coat is to her figure, which may not be considered perfect by societal standards. Wrapped up in a full length mink coat, it’s hard to tell if a woman is a size 8 or a size 18. Many smaller size women buy their fur coats one to two sizes larger anyway so they can add layers underneath when needed. Also when worn over a formal gown you never want your fur to be too snug.
Full length fur coats are stunning on plus size ladies, but another great choice is the real fur swing coat. The swing coat was initially designed in the 1940’s to cover the full skirts that were in fashion. However the swing coat has become a classic style due to its’ graceful fluidity. The coat starts out more fitted at the shoulders and bodice then increasingly moves outward with extra volume that makes the coat “swing.”
A very sexy look that is popular right now is to wear a fur cape or fur shawl just as you would a fur jacket. The fur cape normally falls in the back to the waist or the center of ones’ back and the front of the fur cape will fall to the waist or just below. Fur capes and fur shawls look just as fabulous with a turtleneck, jeans and boots as they do with an evening gown and high heels. Add a wide belt around the waist over the cape for a high fashion look.
Ponchos made a huge come back a few years ago and fur ponchos look divine of plus size ladies. A fur poncho is so easy to fit because they’re basically one size fits all. Wearing a fur poncho is like enveloping yourself in decadent fur blanket, pure coziness. Fur ponchos can easily be dressed up or down. Wear them for a walk in the park or out for a special evening. One thing is for sure, heads will turn because you will look as fabulous as you feel.
