Ever felt unable to flaunt what you got because mainstream fashion is fixated on the slim body shape? Not anymore, at least not today.

There are many body shapes that characterise the plus-size lady, but here we focus on two:  Apple-shaped body and the Pear-shaped body.

These two body types are useful in determining the body fat distribution.

- An apple-shaped body has no defined waist and the weight tends to form on the stomach. This shape generally has narrow hips, larger breasts and a large waist.

- The pear-shaped body has the body with defined waistlines. Mostly, a person with this body type has fat is settled around the hips, thighs and buttocks. This body type is characteristic of the famous 'hour-glass' body shape.

Plus-size-6Below are dress options for both apple-shaped and pear-shaped plus-size ladies. Enjoy!    

1. Flared Gown 


Flared dresses keep the belly in shape and prevent your body from clinging to them.

2. Kente shorts with a sleeveless top 



The beauty of the outfit is also attributed to the hat, to protect the face from direct sunlight.

3. Kente shorts with loose a white shirt 


The zipper of the kente short is positioned at the side to avoid adding extra bumps on the front.
4. Pata Pata gown 


This gown holds the body together and keeps every posture tidy.

5. Shirt dress 


Shirt dresses always make a statement.
