I am a big girl who has never worn belts, but I am interested in trying out the look. For an example, I think this
is a super-cute look, but I'm not sure if/how it would work on me.
-I am on the tall side (5'9"), very long-waisted, and comparatively short-legged. The ideal belt placement I'd like to attain would make my sausage legs look longer without making me look like Grandpa Simpson.
-I am of pretty equal proportion on top and bottom, and quite busty (DD creeping toward E).
-I am, at least in Lane Bryant-sized clothing, anywhere from a 24 to a 28.
-I read and like fatshionista
, but sometimes the advice is a little too young/gothy for my style aesthetic. (I do buy some accessories from Torrid, however.)
Savvy accessorizers, please help me navigate the jungle of belts!
