Plus-size women are constantly told to dress to look thinner, taller, and "flattering." 

Most of the time, that means avoiding stripes, crop tops, and light colors that will supposedly make you look bigger. White and all-white are by far the biggest no-nos for curvy bodies, according to outdated fashion rules.  

Thankfully, body positivity is clapping back and slaying these rules, one by one. Just take a look at these curvy influencers and models teaching us why white makes us look bomber, not bigger.
