7 Things You Should Never Do as a Plus Size Gal

There are so many fashion rules out there and even more for the plus size lady. For ages we’ve been told what to wear and what not to wear. We have rules about colour, shape, accessories and even what shoe is appropriate.

So in addition to those rules, here are a few more to keep in mind when it comes to plus size tops and skirts. You don’t want to be caught stepping out of the house breaking any of these rules – or do you? After all, rules were made to be broken…
