What to wear to an interview at a traditional sort of company…when you are 40 lbs overweight (your words, not mine!):
Remember that your intelligence, skills and talents are of the utmost importance: Bring your interviewer’s interest up to your face/your eyes. Wear colors that work for your coloring; wear makeup (sad but true, statistics prove that people respond more positively to women in the workplace when they wear moderate makeup. Fight it or work with it. Your choice.).
Enhance and detract: Play up your assets. Full hour-glass figure? Show off your smaller waist with a belt; wear a jacket to disguise your sides.
A second layer always looks more polished and it can flow over any bumps you don’t love. Remember, you want a garment to flow over your curves, not tent them.
Skinny bits rule: Wear a heel with a low front to expose the top of your feet; wear a moderate V-neck or scoop to emphasize your clavicle. These tips won’t get you the job, but you’ll feel good!
Wrap dresses are a gift! Wear shape wear underneath. It won’t kill you for a couple hours. (And I would like to say that wrap dresses do not work on EVERY woman - like a small chested pear/dew drop.)
