Do you have any shopping tips for not that short (5'6'') and thin girls? I'm actually skinny & "small-boned" and I'd like to look "bigger". Help?:(
Wow, this is sorta refreshing to read! A “not that short” “actually skinny & small-boned” girl who wants to “look bigger”??? Girl, you have no idea how many people are just sitting there thinking to themselves, wouldn’t it be great to be 5’6 and skinny?…sigh…lol.
I’m glad you are going for a healthier/fuller look (I’m guessing), so try playing with your proportions — mixing fitted with looser pieces. For instance, a chunky sweater, with skinnies, a loose blouse front-tucked into a pair of tapered pleated trousers also, have fun with layering. I am a huge fan of layering, but for the average person, layering can be tough because it tends to add mass, but for people with slimmer figures like yourself, the options are endless.
Take a look at my archive, there might be some options that catch your aesthetic.
Lastly, I hate to get all after-school-special on you, but make sure you’re happy with your body too. Clothing is great and all, but being healthy goes beyond any trend.
Also, thank you for your kind words!
