To tuck or not to tuck?
A lot of women seem to be confused whether to tuck their tops or not.
If you are curvy or plus size, we recommend that you tuck in the top in your high waist pencil skirt. It looks very classy, gives your legs an elongated look and the best part, it makes you look slimmer by flattening your waist and tummy.
The right fit
It is essential to get the right fit. The skirt should not be too tight as this would be very uncomfortable. It would also create unwanted bulges and you certainly don’t want that. If the skirt is too loose it would add more volume around your tummy and hips.
The perfect fit for plus size women would be – high waist so that it flattens your waist, fitting nicely along the hips and going straight down to the knees.
