How To Properly Wear Big and Tall Men’s Clothing

Posted Dec 22 2010 3:31am

< p>In the past there was always a certain amount of social stigma associated with shopping for big and tall men’s clothing. Many people considered shoppers in these stores “ fat ” and “unhealthy” and that is why so many men avoided them.
Today the designation “big and tall” does not carry the stigma that it once did. Perhaps the main reason is that clothing sizes are different now, and what used to be considered a “normal” size a long time ago is now a big and tall size. So the effect is that regular department stores and retailers are now stocking these sizes, and also many designers are doing work in these size categories, as well. Everyone wants to look good, so read on to discover some tips you can use to dress your best. geld lenen offerte   goedkoop geld lenen   direct geld lenen
It’s really best to avoid “flowing” fabrics, but you want to find fabric that breathes. Shirts that have that ‘flowy’ look to them may seem like a good idea to wear. These fabrics feel soft to the touch, and they do breathe very well. But looks are deceptive because they will make you look larger and heavier.
Look for fabrics like cotton and blends. These breathe well but have a stiffer structure so that your size is contained more than it is displayed. This is good for those who are very sensitive about their weight because the ‘containing’ properties of these fabrics will have that affect.
Prepare for shopping by wearing pants that are loose-fitting and shoes that aren’t a hassle to take on and off. That will make things move along much faster while you’re trying on new things. Most people aren’t terribly attracted to spending half a day, or more, trying on things – buttons, tying, lacing, snaps, etc. It’ll make it all go faster to wear clothes you can get out of and into, fast. This will obviously reduce dressing room time. This is especially handy in stores that will only allow you to take a certain number of items into the dressing room at a time.
Choose fabrics that will support your structure. Denim can be a great choice for bigger men as it can withstand more weight than slacks or khaki pants. You might find that lighter fabric could accentuate your curves, making them appear bigger, while denim can hold in some of the weight. Your fabric choices should be thought through carefully. It might feel more comfortable to wear light and flowing fabrics, but these can often make you look bigger than you are.
It’s not as difficult as it used to be to find big and tall men’s clothing you like. These days, big and tall men’s sizes really were normal sizes years ago. Stores want business, so they’re maintaining an inventory of vanity size clothers so people will want to go there and shop. This makes it easier than ever to find the clothing you want in the sizes you need.
