Ruffles for the Plus Size Fashionista

If the last time you wore anything with ruffles on it you were still in Underoos, this is definitely the time to rethink this trend. Delicate and ethereal, ruffles make even a basic tee more feminine. Don’t be afraid to wear ruffles, even if you have a fuller chest; just stick to a single row of ruffles around a v-neck and/or wear the trend with a sleeveless or short sleeve shirt, otherwise you may end up too puffy ala Seinfeld.
