it is true that people form an impression of you when they see you the first time, something that may change if they get to know you better.
First Impressions does not mean you need to stay at home if you are plus size!
Make sure that you come across fresh and happy ( only you can make yourself happy)
Wear a size that FITS. Do not go a size bigger or smaller than what you are. Too tight looks cheap and too big looks sloppy.
Draw attention to your assets: Eyes, Breasts Legs or ankles. And like who you are!
Match what you wear to the style you want to present. Stylish can be casual ;)
Take care of your hands and feet, with creams and manicures.
Pick a hairstyle that is modern yet suits you and portray who you are.
LIFT your head and smile.
