Pure, striking white garments were a huge hit on the runways for spring. While white evokes an air of cool, yet innocent confidence that any girl would want, many plus-size ladies are afraid of wearing white because they think it will make them look larger. Here’s the often untold secret about why wearing all black is so slimming–because you are wearing all one color!

The same philosophy behind black works with every other color–including white! No matter what your style, we probably have an all white outfit that will work for you!
