Full-figured women rely on High Waisted Boyfriend Jeans  jeans as an essential part of their casual attire. There are many varieties and colors of jeans that are available for this group. If you are a plus size lady you can find jeans that are made for your specific body type whether you are tall or short, pear-shaped or well-rounded. There is a jean available that will emphasize your best attributes and camouflage your flaws. The right fitting jean is a great addition to any wardrobe.

It is important to accept the shape and size of your body, and get over the fact that you are not a size 6 or 8, before you go shopping for a pair of jeans. When you do not accept yourself, they are negative thoughts, and they will make you have a negative image about yourself. Focus on the fact that you are a healthy woman. This will make it easier to find a pair of jeans that is so you!

It depends upon the manufacturer, of course, but larger size jeans usually come in sizes 14 to 28. Size 14 in a plus size garment generally corresponds to a 16 regular. Larger size dungarees are offered with “Misses” measurements and with “Junior” measurements. The former term means that the legs are looser, the hip section is wider, and the waistband sits higher than it does in the Juniors.

plus size bootcut jeans

Jeans in a “junior” cut fit snugly in the leg and sit low on the waist. They are rather form-fitting, and full-figured shoppers should try on both jean cuts, taking into consideration their comfort and style, as well as the look. Model the different cuts in a full-length mirror, or, better yet, a three-way mirror, so that you can evaluate the fit from a number of perspectives. Make sure you are completely satisfied in every way before you buy. There is no best cut-it is a personal choice.

Full figured women who have a “pear” shape prefer boot cut jeans. A pear shaped body can be described as being biggest in the middle section (from the lower part of the stomach to the upper thighs).

Boot cut jeans are popular because they de-emphasize the longer part of the body, which is a slimming look. Boot cut jeans generally look better with shoes with a heel or even platform shoes instead of shoes with a flat heel.

Tapered jeans usually do not look good on a plus size woman and should be avoided, unless you really want to draw attention to the least liked parts of your body. Tapered style bottoms should really be reserved for the very thin girls.

Fall and winter may have brought out long peacoats and trenches before, but not this year. One of the most sought-after pieces for the upcoming season will be the shrunken jacket, in a variety of styles. The difference between these new, tinier versions of your traditional autumn and winter favorites is their length; cuts are the same as traditional coats, but they hit slightly above the waist and often tie or button under the chest. The beauty of these new pieces is that they provide coverage in colder months without sacrificing sexiness or femininity.

The perfect jacket is one of the most important elements of your wardrobe, and with so many shapes and fabrics available this fall, it would be a crime to choose just one. The ever-present denim jacket is back with a new vengeance. Instead of the washes of last season or bulkiness of years before, this season's denim jacket is soft, body-conscious and far more feminine than the traditional denim jacket. Corduroy and leather are back again, cropped and ready to be worn over anything from your favorite dress to distressed jeans.

A new take on an old favorite is safe, but take advantage on the amazing new fabrics and styles the end of the year has to offer. Brocade is big this season and some of the most sought-after new jackets are made of the rich, detailed design. Many of these brocaded, boudoir-style jackets are trimmed in rich velvet or lace piping and can be paired with tweed trousers of you favorite jeans. Many of these new jackets are cut at the hip but some are reaching even higher--cropped just below the chest (H & M). Made in rich, new fabrics like tweed and velvet, these jackets have mixed a traditionally matronly fabric with a cut and cling that makes it youthful and sexy. Even faux fur and metallic finishes are adorning the newest trend (Allen B. by Allen Schwartz).

Getting short isn't the only new addition to a cold weather favorite. Sleeves are getting revamped this season, retro-style. Traditional coat fabrics like houndstooth are being used in a new way. Bell sleeves (think bellbottom sleeves, cut below the elbow) mix cropped length with a traditional fabric and throwback to 70s style (Banana Republic). You'll also see a mini version of the military jacket this season; a cropped, girlie take on the long, heavy style, adorned with brass buttons and zippers (Bebe).

The beauty of these new jackets is the versatility they bring to your own style: mix them with denim, dresses, skirts and trousers. Since there isn't one specific style or fabric that will reign this fall, all styles and sizes can take advantage of a new take on an old favorite.

The right pair of denim jeans may be the single most important piece of clothing in your wardrobe and will without a doubt be the most versatile piece in your collection. Plus size denim lines are ever increasing and the trend focused options available in standard sizing are rapidly becoming available for the plus size community. From your favorite tee to a kimono top, your entire look can be changed without ever taking off your denim. However, what looks stylish and sexy on one woman, makes another one look frumpy or outdated. So, how do you know what's right for you? Below are some basic guidelines to follow when shopping for the perfect piece of denim.

The golden rule is: Know what thyself is workin with! If you got it flaunt it, accentuate the positives. Booty like J Lo? Mile long legs? These are the features you want to accentuate. Work with different washes and of the minute denim shapes like boot-cut and wide leg that enhance your favorite features.

What is your body style? Wide Hips, avoid the temptation of drowning yourself in relaxed fit jeans, they will only add inches where you're trying to lose them. Instead draw the eye down and balance the body with a pair of slight flare boot-cut jeans in a mid rise that's fitted throughout the hips. If you have short legs, make sure you pay attention to the length; this is one of the most important aspects when choosing a pair of jeans. Denim should be about a half of an inch above the ground when wearing heels or flats. Darker washes, with a front crease from the knee to the hem, also elongate your legs. A new option re-emerging is the higher waist trouser jean, which not only slims, but creates the illusion of mile long legs. Girls with a boyish figure or a body style considered to be rectangular will want to opt for a cut that will add the illusion of having curves, such as a mid-rise flare leg jean, where the denim is fitted through the hips and thigh, with the flare beginning above the knee.

The devil is in the details; you will want to consider different details of the jean itself. A fan of distressing and aged denim? Make sure not to go overboard. Extreme fading or jeans that appear to be destroyed may be popular with 15 year old pop tarts, but in reality can look tacky and dated. Dark denim in a crisp shape is always chic, as is a medium wash with well placed whiskering. Pay attention to pocket shape and angle. Hexagonal shapes that angle in towards the center tend to work best in creating a heart shaped booty for any body. Pockets placed slightly higher on the tush tend to make a flat booty look perkier and higher. Flap, or cargo pockets, also add some oomph to a small tush. Long pockets that pass the bottom of the tush are fantastic for shaping and lifting an ample booty. Avoid excess fading on the butt and the thighs, as they will make these areas look larger. Also pay attention to a lot of whiskering around the zipper area, which can also accentuate the hips. When considering rise, most women will be best served by a mid rise (a few inches below your belly button).

When choosing the right pair of plus size denim know your body type first and foremost, it is the basis of your search. Know which styles will work with your type and most importantly, what makes you feel fabulous.

Let me tell you, from someone who spent his adolescence as a skinny guy, that being rake-thin is no fun. Yeah ok, i could eat a horse and still have room for apple pie and ice cream, and not even put on a pound of weight, but what good is that when you look like a bean pole?

If you pack on even just a few pounds of muscle, it can make a huge difference, and of course, one of the most impressive places to gain muscle is on your arms.

Big, muscular arms turn heads...period.

But how can you get big arms quickly? Well, here I'd like to show you the most common reasons most skinny guys struggle in their quest of how to get big arms fast.

Big Arms Have 3 Major Muscle Groups

The big mistake that most skinny guys make when looking at how to get big arms fast, is that they tend to focus solely on the biceps and more or less ignore the triceps. That can cost you many wasted hours in the gym.

Look at any bodybuilder or fitness model and you'll notice that in many cases the shape of their muscular triceps is what really gives them their big arms.

FACT: Triceps are naturally bigger and stronger muscles than biceps. So if you're overtraining your biceps you'll only end up with disproportionate upper arms, then don't look or perform nearly as impressively as a good balanced well-trained arm.

How To Get Big Arms By NOT Focusing On Them

Now, I'm a great believer in compound exercises for skinny guys to pack on muscle - in other words I tend to advise people to avoid using isolation exercises (particularly for beginnners) as they will tend to tire out certain muscles before others and so you end up fatigued too early and with poor results.

If you're looking at how to get big arms fast then you'd do well to remember that by simply completing good solid all-body workouts, your biceps, triceps and overall arm size will increase substantially. In fact, if you watch some of the biggest guys in the gym you'll notice that they hardly train their arms specifically. They focus on increasing the size and strength of their chest, shoulder and back muscles and know that big arms are simply a result of that.

If you focus solely on your arms and fatigue them, then by the time you get to exercise your back and shoulders you won't have enough gas left to perform properly, thereby sabotaging your overall fitness and muscle mass gains.

Apply Constant Tension To See Massive Growth

Another mistake skinny guys make when thinking how to get big arms fast is the failure to keep the arm muscles under constant tension in order to see the most gains. The visits to the gym become more about lifting as heavy a weight as possible or doing as many reps as possible to get big arms, whereas in reality it should be about performing the exercises under control with good technique and focusing on working whichever muscles should be worked.

Plus size women have long been neglected and outright mistreated by Hollywood. Yet, times are changing. Full-figured women are showing up everywhere in movies now and in more three-dimensional roles. While some of the movies on this list are clearly better than others, none of them were chosen for any sort of cinematic genius. They made the list because they handle the issues facing plus size women in a humane way. The characters are real people. They are so much more than just a fat girl punch line. So, grab some popcorn and make it a movie night.

1. Real Women Have Curves (2002)- America Ferrera stars as Ana, a Mexican-American teenager trying to find her way. The story explores family dynamics, ambition, body image issues, and more. Follow Ana as she enters womanhood, searches for identity, and struggles to mesh other people's belief systems with her own.

2. Shag The Movie (1989)- This lighthearted film set in the Summer of 1963 follows a group of four friends who intend to have one last girls' adventure before one member's upcoming wedding. Caroline, nicknamed "Pudge," is a chubby girl who loves to dance. While her friends run amuck all weekend, Pudge makes peace with herself, finds a guy, and shags 'til her heart is content.

3. Last Holiday (2006)- Queen Latifah stars as Georgia Byrd, a plus size woman who lives life on the sidelines until she discovers that she is terminally ill. Georgia promptly sets out to make at least some of her dreams come true before she dies. She takes the trip of a lifetime, eats with abandon, and gets herself a to-die-for makeover amongst other things.

4. Phat Girlz (2006)- Ah...what to say about this movie? Well, it's certainly the worst of the bunch in my opinion. The cinematography isn't great, the jokes are crude, and many of the attitudes expressed in it are contrary to all that I believe in. However, there are definitely some worthwhile aspects. Jazmin, the lead character, is a smart, talented business woman. Her struggles with weight and self-acceptance are very poignant. It shows different cultural beliefs about weight. And all the men are fit dispelling the myth that only fat guys are attracted to fat women. That's enough good stuff to watch this one at least once on cable.

5. Camp (2003)- Teenagers attend a performing arts camp. While most of the ensemble of characters struggle with figuring out who they are, the stand out for me is Jenna. Jenna's jaws are wired shut throughout most of the movie, a compromise made to avoid fat camp, but when she finally stands up to her overbearing parents...it's all worthwhile.

6. Circle of Friends (1995)- This film chronicles the dynamics of a single peer group in 1950's Ireland. Benny, our curvy heroine, experiences the ups and downs of love and betrayal. She shows strength and poise throughout where others fall incredibly short.

7. Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004)- In this sequel, we see chubby overly analytical Bridget up to her usual antics in dating and living. Funny and heartwarming, this film is worth watching if for no other reason than one scene: Bridget attempts to get dressed under a sheet, fumbling around until her boyfriend tells her that he has "a very high regard for your wobbly bits."

8. Hairspray (2008)-While the earlier version captivated me, the latest one stole my heart. It's great to see women who are more than just a little chubby find self-acceptance and happiness. You have to love all the singing, dancing, and plus size pride abound. And you just can't beat John Travolta in drag!

It always comes as a surprise when you hear someone say that they are too skinny or they need to gain some weight, but in fact there are quite a few persons who fall into that category. Even if you are genetically predisposed to being skinny, you can improve your physical appearance by weight and strength training to build bulk and eating appropriately.

There are steps to gaining weight and skipping one or the other will make it more difficult to move from being skinny to your desired weight and size. Some of the recommended steps in gaining weight are:

Lifting weight
Counting calories
Strength training
Drinking water

How to Build Muscles

The best way to increase size is to bulk up or to build muscles; you could eat all the wrong things and put on weight but that would be the wrong type of bulk: fat. Muscles on the other hand improve strength and tone the body. To ensure that you are not overtraining any one group of muscles it is good to have a weight lifting program, this will split your routine into various days. For example, if you decide to train for only four days per week, you would do this:

Monday: Legs and shoulders
Tuesday: Biceps and triceps
Wednesday: No gym
Thursday: Abs
Friday: Chest and back

Even though you may be skinny and trying to gain weight you shouldn't overwork your muscles. It is a good idea to give muscles at lest a forty-eight hour recovery time between exercises. It is not how long you work the muscles that build bulk, it is how hard. Always get expert advice when you are just starting an exercise program.

Bodybuilding Drinks

Body builders tend to drink lots of protein drinks and supplements. Some of this is hype, but not all. Ask questions from nutritionists or professional trainers to find the type of drink that will help you gain weight in a healthy way. Most of these drinks are high in protein and carbohydrates which aid in growing muscles and restoring energy.

How to gain weight healthily

To gain weight in a healthy way, that is, to no longer be skinny, but thin and healthy you have to maintain a proper diet. This means increasing your calorie intake, but it is important that you stay away from 'bad' fats. You must however take in more calories than you are burning by exercising and from daily activities. One of the reasons why bodybuilding shakes help with weight gain is the amount of protein they contain in addition to complex carbohydrates. Increase your meals to about five to six small portions per day. This is the main way to increase your calorie intake in a natural, healthy routine.

Being consistent is necessary, and for you to see results you must be willing to keep working at building muscles and gaining weight. Lastly, no matter how skinny you are, you also need to include cardio exercises in your routine. Rest, and plenty of it, is also important, especially for allowing tired muscles to recover and regenerate.

Plus size women often times have a hard time knowing how to dress. Some want to hide under their clothes because they do not like being plus size. Others want to embrace their plus size and wear fun sexy clothes. Then the question becomes where to look for these clothes?

Not all stores carry plus size fashions. Women have to search for the stores or sites online that carry plus size clothes. There are several places to shop once women start looking into it. Not all of the stores or online sites have fashionable plus size clothing, though.

Sometimes choosing the correct length is a skirt or top can make such a huge difference to how a plus size woman looks in her clothes. Some can take the belted look while others need a smoother fit.

Bras are another major problem for plus size women. Most stores only carry up to maybe sizes 44-8 DD. A lot of women wear beyond these sizes. 48I and even up to 52M can be required. A great source to turn to is either special bra catalogs or sites online. Sites such as http://www.justmysize.com and [http://www.lanebryantcatalog.com] have a wide range of hard to find sizes.

The fashion world is a fickle mistress. Things go in and out daily. One day the fashion gurus are declaring that plaid is the new black and suddenly all over New York City mannequins covered in plaid from head to toe suddenly appear in store windows up and down the Garment district. Fashion is fleeting but every now and then a style emerges that takes hold in the minds and hearts of fashion critics the world over. These consistent fashions are giants in a crowd of diminutive and evanescent fashion trends. One of these dependable fashion trends is that of distressed jeans.

Distressed denim is the name for jeans that are designed and manufactured to appear well worn. As if they'd been worn to a hundred rock and roll concerts or washed and folded a thousand times. This style represents the laissez faire, laid-back mentality of today's generation. If the smiley face t-shirt defined the 90s its clear that the distressed jean will define the 2000s. Hundreds of thousands of twenty something's walk the streets of New York City wearing graphic tees and distressed denim jeans and this trend shows no signs of stopping.

How can one get in on this fashion trend? It's easy. There are two options. The first option is to buy a pair of non-distressed jeans and wear them until they're falling apart at the seams. This option is cost-effective but the reality is who really wants a pair of jeans that are falling apart at the seams? The second option is far more pragmatic. Quite simple one could simply buy jeans styled to look and feel like well worn jeans but with the dependability one would assume comes along with buying brand new denim jeans. If one were to take advantage of the second option they'd be able to enjoy the best of both worlds! Comfortable and dependable fashion all rolled up into one.

There is a jean available that will emphasize your best attributes and camouflage your flaws. The right fitting jean is a great addition to any wardrobe.

It is important to accept the shape and size of your body, and get over the fact that you are not a size 6 or 8, before you go shopping for a pair of jeans. When you do not accept yourself, they are negative thoughts, and they will make you have a negative image about yourself. Focus on the fact that you are a healthy woman. This will make it easier to find a pair of jeans that is so you!

It depends upon the manufacturer, of course, but larger size jeans usually come in sizes 14 to 28. Size 14 in a plus size garment generally corresponds to a 16 regular. Larger size dungarees are offered with “Misses” measurements and with “Junior” measurements. The former term means that the legs are looser, the hip section is wider, and the waistband sits higher than it does in the Juniors.

Jeans in a “junior” cut fit snugly in the leg and sit low on the waist. They are rather form-fitting, and full-figured shoppers should try on both jean cuts, taking into consideration their comfort and style, as well as the look. Model the different cuts in a full-length mirror, or, better yet, a three-way mirror, so that you can evaluate the fit from a number of perspectives. Make sure you are completely satisfied in every way before you buy. There is no best cut-it is a personal choice.

Full figured women who have a “pear” shape prefer boot cut jeans. A pear shaped body can be described as being biggest in the middle section (from the lower part of the stomach to the upper thighs).

Boot cut jeans are popular because they de-emphasize the longer part of the body, which is a slimming look. Boot cut jeans generally look better with shoes with a heel or even platform shoes instead of shoes with a flat heel.

Tapered jeans usually do not look good on a plus size woman and should be avoided, unless you really want to draw attention to the least liked parts of your body. Tapered style bottoms should really be reserved for the very thin girls.

Plus size women have long been neglected and outright mistreated by Hollywood. Yet, times are changing. Full-figured women are showing up everywhere in movies now and in more three-dimensional roles. While some of the movies on this list are clearly better than others, none of them were chosen for any sort of cinematic genius. They made the list because they handle the issues facing plus size women in a humane way. The characters are real people. They are so much more than just a fat girl punch line. So, grab some popcorn and make it a movie night.

1. Real Women Have Curves (2002)- America Ferrera stars as Ana, a Mexican-American teenager trying to find her way. The story explores family dynamics, ambition, body image issues, and more. Follow Ana as she enters womanhood, searches for identity, and struggles to mesh other people's belief systems with her own.

2. Shag The Movie (1989)- This lighthearted film set in the Summer of 1963 follows a group of four friends who intend to have one last girls' adventure before one member's upcoming wedding. Caroline, nicknamed "Pudge," is a chubby girl who loves to dance. While her friends run amuck all weekend, Pudge makes peace with herself, finds a guy, and shags 'til her heart is content.

3. Last Holiday (2006)- Queen Latifah stars as Georgia Byrd, a plus size woman who lives life on the sidelines until she discovers that she is terminally ill. Georgia promptly sets out to make at least some of her dreams come true before she dies. She takes the trip of a lifetime, eats with abandon, and gets herself a to-die-for makeover amongst other things.

4. Phat Girlz (2006)- Ah...what to say about this movie? Well, it's certainly the worst of the bunch in my opinion. The cinematography isn't great, the jokes are crude, and many of the attitudes expressed in it are contrary to all that I believe in. However, there are definitely some worthwhile aspects. Jazmin, the lead character, is a smart, talented business woman. Her struggles with weight and self-acceptance are very poignant. It shows different cultural beliefs about weight. And all the men are fit dispelling the myth that only fat guys are attracted to fat women. That's enough good stuff to watch this one at least once on cable.

5. Camp (2003)- Teenagers attend a performing arts camp. While most of the ensemble of characters struggle with figuring out who they are, the stand out for me is Jenna. Jenna's jaws are wired shut throughout most of the movie, a compromise made to avoid fat camp, but when she finally stands up to her overbearing parents...it's all worthwhile.

6. Circle of Friends (1995)- This film chronicles the dynamics of a single peer group in 1950's Ireland. Benny, our curvy heroine, experiences the ups and downs of love and betrayal. She shows strength and poise throughout where others fall incredibly short.

7. Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004)- In this sequel, we see chubby overly analytical Bridget up to her usual antics in dating and living. Funny and heartwarming, this film is worth watching if for no other reason than one scene: Bridget attempts to get dressed under a sheet, fumbling around until her boyfriend tells her that he has "a very high regard for your wobbly bits."

8. Hairspray (2008)-While the earlier version captivated me, the latest one stole my heart. It's great to see women who are more than just a little chubby find self-acceptance and happiness. You have to love all the singing, dancing, and plus size pride abound. And you just can't beat John Travolta in drag!

The right pair of denim jeans may be the single most important piece of clothing in your wardrobe and will without a doubt be the most versatile piece in your collection. Plus size denim lines are ever increasing and the trend focused options available in standard sizing are rapidly becoming available for the plus size community. From your favorite tee to a kimono top, your entire look can be changed without ever taking off your denim. However, what looks stylish and sexy on one woman, makes another one look frumpy or outdated. So, how do you know what's right for you? Below are some basic guidelines to follow when shopping for the perfect piece of denim.

The golden rule is: Know what thyself is workin with! If you got it flaunt it, accentuate the positives. Booty like J Lo? Mile long legs? These are the features you want to accentuate. Work with different washes and of the minute denim shapes like boot-cut and wide leg that enhance your favorite features.

What is your body style? Wide Hips, avoid the temptation of drowning yourself in relaxed fit jeans, they will only add inches where you're trying to lose them. Instead draw the eye down and balance the body with a pair of slight flare boot-cut jeans in a mid rise that's fitted throughout the hips. If you have short legs, make sure you pay attention to the length; this is one of the most important aspects when choosing a pair of jeans. Denim should be about a half of an inch above the ground when wearing heels or flats. Darker washes, with a front crease from the knee to the hem, also elongate your legs. A new option re-emerging is the higher waist trouser jean, which not only slims, but creates the illusion of mile long legs. Girls with a boyish figure or a body style considered to be rectangular will want to opt for a cut that will add the illusion of having curves, such as a mid-rise flare leg jean, where the denim is fitted through the hips and thigh, with the flare beginning above the knee.

The devil is in the details; you will want to consider different details of the jean itself. A fan of distressing and aged denim? Make sure not to go overboard. Extreme fading or jeans that appear to be destroyed may be popular with 15 year old pop tarts, but in reality can look tacky and dated. Dark denim in a crisp shape is always chic, as is a medium wash with well placed whiskering. Pay attention to pocket shape and angle. Hexagonal shapes that angle in towards the center tend to work best in creating a heart shaped booty for any body. Pockets placed slightly higher on the tush tend to make a flat booty look perkier and higher. Flap, or cargo pockets, also add some oomph to a small tush. Long pockets that pass the bottom of the tush are fantastic for shaping and lifting an ample booty. Avoid excess fading on the butt and the thighs, as they will make these areas look larger. Also pay attention to a lot of whiskering around the zipper area, which can also accentuate the hips. When considering rise, most women will be best served by a mid rise (a few inches below your belly button).

When choosing the right pair of plus size denim know your body type first and foremost, it is the basis of your search. Know which styles will work with your type and most importantly, what makes you feel fabulous.

What is it about lingerie that gets us attracted? Is it the fabric, the feel, the seduction it brings in or the fact that it is considered sexy? Well I think it is a sweet amalgamation of all those factors mentioned above. It brings out your femininity and puts it on the spotlight. Lingerie is mainly purchased by women to look sexy and feel confident about their physical self and to work magic on the minds of their men. No matter how you look at the normal days but sexy lingerie does make you look not less than a sultry actress in the movies.

Lingerie is available in plenty in the fashion market around the world. You have a plethora of state-of-the-art patterns and designs along with incredibly smooth and silky fabric to add that extra zing to the comfort levels in wearing them. However, in this size savvy world where pictures of slender and slim models and actresses dominate the media emphasis is given to sexy clothing for the "perfect" trim bodied females rather than our voluptuous sisters. The lingerie in the plus size sections has limited choices. Women, no matter what size they are, need to look and feel confident about themselves. And when plus size women find it hard to find the right kind of lingerie in lingerie stores it is a sad situation.

Taking these problems into consideration there have been some newly launched websites that cater to the needs of our plus sized beauties. With the advent of the internet it is not difficult any more to get your hands on some exclusive lingerie types that are present in great numbers and sizes on these websites. Not many lingerie stores may have what you require and you feel a little let down when you do not get the freedom to choose the lingerie of your liking. On the other hand, sexy plus size lingerie available on the internet makes it extremely comfortable for you to purchase the sexiest lingerie without even a slight bit of embarrassment of buying them in public.

Plus size women lingerie are available in different forms like babydolls, leather lingerie, stockings, teddies, corsets, bustiers, camisoles, chemise sets, sleepwear and gowns, garter sets, thongs, panties and sexy bras. They are available in sizes that are well defined in these websites. They guide you through the various size definitions with the help of your vital statistics. These websites also have images of plus size models wearing the lingerie which gives you a fair idea of how you would look in them. You could also indulge yourselves into the kind of lingerie that forms a part of your fantasy. You would have no issues of shopping for the kinkiest of the lot when you are shopping online.

If you buy jeans which are a good fit, you'll look great and the same applies to plus size women, but you need to shop in the right places. So, follow this guide to where to buy the best fitting jeans for women.

Of course, you can go to your local shopping mall and there will be plenty of places selling jeans in all different shapes and sizes, but many women prefer to do their shopping online in the comfort of their own homes, and without the hassle and embarrassment of communal changing rooms.

Another advantage of online stores is that they don't have the overheads of retail shops and they can buy in great quantity as they're servicing the whole country, so, very often, they pass on their savings to their customers. In addition, they can afford to stock a greater range of products so you get a better choice.

Consequently I've chosen only online stores which specialise in plus size clothing as you'll get a much better fit and range of sizes than from stores which cater for all sizes.

The down side of shopping on the internet is that you may be sending your hard-earned cash to some scammer, but the stores I'm recommending are reputable and you'll be sure to find the best fitting jeans for women.

1. Addition Elle - Addition Elle has a wide variety of jeans with a fairly good range of colours. Sizes range from 14 to XP and they do provide a useful size and fit guide. Once you get the jeans page up on your screen you can get a quick preview of any single one so you don't have to mess around changing pages. Prices are mid range. The catalogue will filter by size, colour, price, fit and brand.

2. Penningtons - Penningtons offer a slightly narrower range of jeans with fewer colours than Addition Elle in a similar price range. Sizes go from X to 28P.

3. Amazon.com - Amazon have a huge range of plus size jeans where you're sure to find the best fitting jeans for women of all ages. They carry the top brands such as Not Your Daughter's Jeans, Levi's, Lee, Woman Within and Wallflower. Prices range from around $20 into the $200 area so you pay your money and take your choice.

4. Delia's - Delia's catalogue is easy to use as you can filter it by fit, leg style, wash and length. However, the size range is limited as plus sizes only go from 17 to 20 but there's a really great selection of colours and styles. Prices are low to medium.

Of course there are plenty of retail stores with an online presence such as Fashion Bug, Torrid and Lane Bryant plus a whole lot more.

It always comes as a surprise when you hear someone say that they are too skinny or they need to gain some weight, but in fact there are quite a few persons who fall into that category. Even if you are genetically predisposed to being skinny, you can improve your physical appearance by weight and strength training to build bulk and eating appropriately.

There are steps to gaining weight and skipping one or the other will make it more difficult to move from being skinny to your desired weight and size. Some of the recommended steps in gaining weight are:

Lifting weight
Counting calories
Strength training
Drinking water

How to Build Muscles

The best way to increase size is to bulk up or to build muscles; you could eat all the wrong things and put on weight but that would be the wrong type of bulk: fat. Muscles on the other hand improve strength and tone the body. To ensure that you are not overtraining any one group of muscles it is good to have a weight lifting program, this will split your routine into various days. For example, if you decide to train for only four days per week, you would do this:

Monday: Legs and shoulders
Tuesday: Biceps and triceps
Wednesday: No gym
Thursday: Abs
Friday: Chest and back

Even though you may be skinny and trying to gain weight you shouldn't overwork your muscles. It is a good idea to give muscles at lest a forty-eight hour recovery time between exercises. It is not how long you work the muscles that build bulk, it is how hard. Always get expert advice when you are just starting an exercise program.

Bodybuilding Drinks

Body builders tend to drink lots of protein drinks and supplements. Some of this is hype, but not all. Ask questions from nutritionists or professional trainers to find the type of drink that will help you gain weight in a healthy way. Most of these drinks are high in protein and carbohydrates which aid in growing muscles and restoring energy.

How to gain weight healthily

To gain weight in a healthy way, that is, to no longer be skinny, but thin and healthy you have to maintain a proper diet. This means increasing your calorie intake, but it is important that you stay away from 'bad' fats. You must however take in more calories than you are burning by exercising and from daily activities. One of the reasons why bodybuilding shakes help with weight gain is the amount of protein they contain in addition to complex carbohydrates. Increase your meals to about five to six small portions per day. This is the main way to increase your calorie intake in a natural, healthy routine.

Being consistent is necessary, and for you to see results you must be willing to keep working at building muscles and gaining weight. Lastly, no matter how skinny you are, you also need to include cardio exercises in your routine. Rest, and plenty of it, is also important, especially for allowing tired muscles to recover and regenerate.

Here are important tips for the best care of your denim jeans. Jeans will last longer and fit better if you treat them just a little differently than your other clothing.

Tag Check

Check the cleaning instructions and type of your jeans which is located on a tag inside your jeans. "Pre-washed" or "pre-distressed" indicates that the jeans have undergone manufacturing processes to create fading and to minimize shrinking. However, these jeans can still fade and shrink if you wash in hot water and dry in hot temperature. To minimize fading and shrinking always wash in cold water and air dry. Even safer is to dry clean.

"Raw" or "dry" indicates that the jeans have not been washed, and the blue color is not set.

"Single wash" means that the jeans have been soaked once in cold water to soften the fabric and set the blue dye.

"Sanforized" means that your jeans have been pre-shrunk. Most jean fabric is processed by this patented technique. It's been around for 70 years. No chemicals are involved. Shrinkage can still occur if you use hot water to wash or tumble dry with hot air.

"Unsanforized" or "shrink to fit" indicates that the jeans will definitely shrink as much as 2" on the waist. The longer you soak jeans and the hotter the water, the more they shrink. Dry them in a machine will increase shrinkage.

Washing & Drying

The more you wash and wear your jeans, the more they fade and the shorter their life span. Some believe that never washing jeans will make them last longer, but this is a myth because the acids and oils in your own skin wears on the cotton fabric. It's a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation! So the best care is the gentlest washing such as turning them inside out and soaking them in your tub and gently agitating them, and then air drying, and as seldom as possible! Again dry cleaning is the safest.

You can add some table salt to the cold water to further minimize fading and shrinking. Use I cup per bath tub or cup per washing machine load.

Some believe that putting jeans in a freezer bag and then placing them in a freezer overnight will clean them. Unfortunately this is also a myth. Freezing kills odor-causing bacteria, but does remove the oils and acids from our skin or from dirt.

Soap & Detergent

Some jean fanatics use no soap or detergent. They just soak their jeans and freeze them to remove odor. If you want soap, a mild type will minimize fading and deterioration. The mildest soaps are Woolite and Dr. Bronner's. The mildest detergent is Orvus Paste which is used to wash quilts and horses! Turn the jeans inside out and soak them in cold water with the soap or detergent already dissolved for about 45 minutes. Once in a while gently agitate the jeans with your hands. To dry just hang them outside preferably flat.

To machine wash, the best way is to turn your jeans inside out. Set your washer on the most delicate cycle using cold water for both your wash and rinse cycles. Also use the largest amount of water and don't wash the jeans with any other clothing, except other jeans of the same color, but no more than 5 pairs per load. Fill the washer with cold water and dissolve your mild soap in the water and then add the jeans. If you want to use fabric softener never pour it straight into the washer water. Rather, use the fabric softener dispenser. When the washing is complete, hand your jeans inside or outside to dry.

The best way to dry jeans is never in a machine! If you must use a dryer be sure to use the lowest heat setting or no heat at all.

Caution

Hot water and hot machine drying cause fading and shrinkage even if your jeans have been pre-shrunk. Never use bleach unless you want to "acid wash" you jeans - see my instructions for acid washing. Never mix jeans with any other color clothing in your washer. Wash light blue and dark blue jeans separately. The safest way to stretch your jeans is to wear them while they are damp! And believe it or not there are health concerns for both men and women involving tight jeans. Studies show that women who are susceptible to yeast and bladder infections should minimize the wearing of tight jeans. Studies also show that men who constantly wearing tight pants have a decreased sperm count!

It is important to accept the shape and size of your body, and get over the fact that you are not a size 6 or 8, before you go shopping for a pair of jeans. When you do not accept yourself, they are negative thoughts, and they will make you have a negative image about yourself. Focus on the fact that you are a healthy woman. This will make it easier to find a pair of jeans that is so you!

It depends upon the manufacturer, of course, but larger size jeans usually come in sizes 14 to 28. Size 14 in a plus size garment generally corresponds to a 16 regular. Larger size dungarees are offered with “Misses” measurements and with “Junior” measurements. The former term means that the legs are looser, the hip section is wider, and the waistband sits higher than it does in the Juniors.

Jeans in a “junior” cut fit snugly in the leg and sit low on the waist. They are rather form-fitting, and full-figured shoppers should try on both jean cuts, taking into consideration their comfort and style, as well as the look. Model the different cuts in a full-length mirror, or, better yet, a three-way mirror, so that you can evaluate the fit from a number of perspectives. Make sure you are completely satisfied in every way before you buy. There is no best cut-it is a personal choice.

Full figured women who have a “pear” shape prefer boot cut jeans. A pear shaped body can be described as being biggest in the middle section (from the lower part of the stomach to the upper thighs).

Boot cut jeans are popular because they de-emphasize the longer part of the body, which is a slimming look. Boot cut jeans generally look better with shoes with a heel or even platform shoes instead of shoes with a flat heel.

Tapered jeans usually do not look good on a plus size woman and should be avoided, unless you really want to draw attention to the least liked parts of your body. Tapered style bottoms should really be reserved for the very thin girls.

The right pair of denim jeans may be the single most important piece of clothing in your wardrobe and will without a doubt be the most versatile piece in your collection. Plus size denim lines are ever increasing and the trend focused options available in standard sizing are rapidly becoming available for the plus size community. From your favorite tee to a kimono top, your entire look can be changed without ever taking off your denim. However, what looks stylish and sexy on one woman, makes another one look frumpy or outdated. So, how do you know what's right for you? Below are some basic guidelines to follow when shopping for the perfect piece of denim.

The golden rule is: Know what thyself is workin with! If you got it flaunt it, accentuate the positives. Booty like J Lo? Mile long legs? These are the features you want to accentuate. Work with different washes and of the minute denim shapes like boot-cut and wide leg that enhance your favorite features.

What is your body style? Wide Hips, avoid the temptation of drowning yourself in relaxed fit jeans, they will only add inches where you're trying to lose them. Instead draw the eye down and balance the body with a pair of slight flare boot-cut jeans in a mid rise that's fitted throughout the hips. If you have short legs, make sure you pay attention to the length; this is one of the most important aspects when choosing a pair of jeans. Denim should be about a half of an inch above the ground when wearing heels or flats. Darker washes, with a front crease from the knee to the hem, also elongate your legs. A new option re-emerging is the higher waist trouser jean, which not only slims, but creates the illusion of mile long legs. Girls with a boyish figure or a body style considered to be rectangular will want to opt for a cut that will add the illusion of having curves, such as a mid-rise flare leg jean, where the denim is fitted through the hips and thigh, with the flare beginning above the knee.

The devil is in the details; you will want to consider different details of the jean itself. A fan of distressing and aged denim? Make sure not to go overboard. Extreme fading or jeans that appear to be destroyed may be popular with 15 year old pop tarts, but in reality can look tacky and dated. Dark denim in a crisp shape is always chic, as is a medium wash with well placed whiskering. Pay attention to pocket shape and angle. Hexagonal shapes that angle in towards the center tend to work best in creating a heart shaped booty for any body. Pockets placed slightly higher on the tush tend to make a flat booty look perkier and higher. Flap, or cargo pockets, also add some oomph to a small tush. Long pockets that pass the bottom of the tush are fantastic for shaping and lifting an ample booty. Avoid excess fading on the butt and the thighs, as they will make these areas look larger. Also pay attention to a lot of whiskering around the zipper area, which can also accentuate the hips. When considering rise, most women will be best served by a mid rise (a few inches below your belly button).

When choosing the right pair of plus size denim know your body type first and foremost, it is the basis of your search. Know which styles will work with your type and most importantly, what makes you feel fabulous.

If you buy jeans which are a good fit, you'll look great and the same applies to plus size women, but you need to shop in the right places. So, follow this guide to where to buy the best fitting jeans for women.

Of course, you can go to your local shopping mall and there will be plenty of places selling jeans in all different shapes and sizes, but many women prefer to do their shopping online in the comfort of their own homes, and without the hassle and embarrassment of communal changing rooms.

Another advantage of online stores is that they don't have the overheads of retail shops and they can buy in great quantity as they're servicing the whole country, so, very often, they pass on their savings to their customers. In addition, they can afford to stock a greater range of products so you get a better choice.

Consequently I've chosen only online stores which specialise in plus size clothing as you'll get a much better fit and range of sizes than from stores which cater for all sizes.

The down side of shopping on the internet is that you may be sending your hard-earned cash to some scammer, but the stores I'm recommending are reputable and you'll be sure to find the best fitting jeans for women.

1. Addition Elle - Addition Elle has a wide variety of jeans with a fairly good range of colours. Sizes range from 14 to XP and they do provide a useful size and fit guide. Once you get the jeans page up on your screen you can get a quick preview of any single one so you don't have to mess around changing pages. Prices are mid range. The catalogue will filter by size, colour, price, fit and brand.

2. Penningtons - Penningtons offer a slightly narrower range of jeans with fewer colours than Addition Elle in a similar price range. Sizes go from X to 28P.

3. Amazon.com - Amazon have a huge range of plus size jeans where you're sure to find the best fitting jeans for women of all ages. They carry the top brands such as Not Your Daughter's Jeans, Levi's, Lee, Woman Within and Wallflower. Prices range from around $20 into the $200 area so you pay your money and take your choice.

4. Delia's - Delia's catalogue is easy to use as you can filter it by fit, leg style, wash and length. However, the size range is limited as plus sizes only go from 17 to 20 but there's a really great selection of colours and styles. Prices are low to medium.

Of course there are plenty of retail stores with an online presence such as Fashion Bug, Torrid and Lane Bryant plus a whole lot more.
