Before even being able to enter a golf course, you first must confirm that your attire conforms to the course rules. Different golf courses have their own protocol. Some golf courses clearly define the type of clothing that is deemed appropriate with little wiggle room whereas others are much more lenient and will basically allow you to wear whatever you want, as long as it’s appropriate. If you’re a plus-sized women, finding the right type of golf apparel that suits your body can be difficult. Here are three tips to help you get started finding ladies’ golf wear.
Choose White or Neutral-Colored Shoes
One of the easier ways to make yourself seem more slender is to elongate your legs. The easiest way to go about this is to wear white or neutral-colored shoes. These colors basically make the shoes appear as if they are an extension of your legs. On the other hand, black-colored shoes will interfere with this illusion. The black will basically force the viewer’s eyes to pause at the shoes, thus shortening the length of your legs.
Get Custom-Fitted Apparel Rather Than Standard
Standard ladies’ golf apparel generally all comes in the same types of cuts. This might not always be flattering for everyone, depending on their body shape and size. If the clothes fit too tightly, they will accentuate any bulges that appear. On the other hand, if they’re too loose and baggy, they’ll make you appear larger than you actually are. Instead of purchasing standard apparel offered at the golf course, purchase custom-fitted pieces that are tailored to hug your body in all the right places. Take this opportunity to enhance and accentuate positive features.
Wear Shirts That Are Worn Over Bottoms
Shirts that need to be tucked in will add too much bulk to your top. This will make you appear larger. Look for outfits that allow for the shirt to be worn over the bottoms. Not only will this be a lot more comfortable for long hours on the golf course, but these shirts also look more slimming. You can also take this time to look for tapered shirts or ones with interesting hems and details that will look more flattering on larger women.
It’s hard to find the right type of golf apparel that will accentuate all of the positive features of your body, especially since most ladies’ golf apparel is as basic and plain as clothing comes. You’ll probably have to shop around and try on different types of cuts and designs before you find an outfit that works for you.
