What To Wear When You Are Feeling Fat

We all have those days when we feel fat and bloated. To look and feel your best on your fat days, check out these figure-flattering and comfortable fashion choices.

1Maxi dress

Years ago, Angelina Jolie popularized the maxi dress when she was pregnant and the style has remained trendy ever since. The maxi dress features a loose, flowing skirt that hides any figure flaws and still makes you feel beautiful. Bohemian-inspired maxi dresses in fun prints are perfect for your fat days. Just slip on your maxi dress and your favorite sandals -- you'll be out the door in no time.

2Tunic tops

Cropped or waist-length tops and jackets aren't your friend when you are feeling fat. Instead, reach for a tunic-length top that hits at the hip. Tunics are trendy right now when partnered with skinny jeans. Just make sure that your jeans have a bit of stretch to them so you'll still be comfy.

3Flared skirt

Fortunately flared skirts are hot right now, from subtle A-line shapes to big, full skirts. No matter your length preference (mini, midi or maxi), you can find flared skirts in beautiful fabrics. Consider a skirt with a high waist to disguise any stomach pooch.

4Slouchy sweater

Oversized cardigans and roomy dolman sleeve sweaters are fall staples that are ideal for those days you are feeling a bit fat. Choose a sweater in a cozy, soft knit and partner it with slim straight leg jeans.

5Wrap dress

The iconic wrap dress made famous by Diane von Furstenberg is flattering for almost any figure type. Select a wrap dress in a jersey knit with a knee-length skirt to create a long and lean silhouette.

6Boyfriend jeans

For casual days, pull on your favorite pair of jeans and an oversized tee. Relaxed fit jeans with a little extra room in the tummy, hips and thighs are just perfect. Cuffed boyfriend jeans emerged on the fashion scene a few years back and they are still a popular choice today.

By picking the right clothing, you can still look stylish even when you feel fat. When getting dressed on your fat days, pay attention to accessories. A big handbag can make you feel smaller. Same goes for big, bold jewelry such as a thick cuff bracelet, chunky cocktail ring or statement bib necklace. Also consider pulling your hair up. Updos make your face look slimmer, so you'll feel better about how you look.

I also have a pair of old shorts that are a little too big so when I have a "fat" day I just slip them on! Great tips!
