I'm not saying either of you is right or wrong, but I find it funny how one of you says to "wear clothes that hug your body more" and the other one says "quit with all the tight clothes"!

I guess everyone has a different sense of style.
That is why it is so much fun to have an opinion, everyones is different. I just wish she would get some professional advice, she is a pretty girl who has the means to seek that advice, I think it would serve her well. Unfortunetly, she will be judged all her life because of her title, I would just like to see her look her best.

Every fashion adviser would suggest for a girl who has more curves to wear clothes to hug your body more.
I think a lot of bigger girls make the mistake that wide clothes will make you look slimmer. Well, that's not true. It makes you look more plump, sometimes even pregnant, un-groomed and messy. With the right colors, form and pattern (vertical stripes for example) it makes every curvy woman look great.

I have a female friend (she's Italian with lovely olive skin tone) who has rather a curvy figure and she asked me to go shopping with her to help choose a dress for a wedding she was going to. Her boyfriend had gone with her the day before and picked out a slinky white dress with huge split at the side, whcih she didn't like! So we went to Monsoon and she tried all their dresses on. Of course there were many styles, designs, colours and shapes etc and I was amazed at how some looked OK on her yet others looked dreadful! Eventually, after a couple of hours, she tried on a black, 3/4 length A-line skirted sleevless dress with colourful silk flower embroidery and it looked absolutely amazing on her. So she at last found the shape and fit that looked best on her. On someone else, it might have looked awful! Anyway, the moral of the story so to speak is that rather than slavishly follow all the up-to-the minute fashions and styles no matter what they are (and always look great on a six-foot tall, ultra slim model), Beatrice should find style, shape, colours etc that really bring out the best in her looks.

Curvy ladies (like me!) can look good in clothing that skims the body, but it has to fit really well--not tight and not loose. I like tailored clothes for that reason: lots of princess seams (no pun intended) and darts.

I can't say I'm particularly curvy, but that fashion advice definitely makes sense. I wouldn't call Beatrice fat, but she is a little on the heavy side, and loose fitting clothes do tend to make people look larger...but on the other hand, tight clothes emphasize curves that maybe shouldn't be emphasized. Beatrice seems to be following your advice about well-fitted clothes in the latest set of pictures that were just posted, and I think she looks nice.

Wear what you love and love what you wear. Don't be shy to wear different articles of clothing a second time.

Don't wear things that wear you.

Don't only choose clothes you like, choose what you like and what suits you!

^ All three of you are right, Agogo, Lumutqueen and Dierna23. I would tell her to wear brighter colours - I have the impression that most of the times I see this girl in black or dark blue - and to show her gorgeous legs more from now on!

Have fun with your clothes now that you can, try and experiment; although not on official events of course.

Princess Anne dresses very tastefully. The two young Princesses are just that - young. I can't remember anyone complaining when the late Princess of Wales showed cleavage. I think everyone is being terribly hard on on B and E.

I rather think some people tend to get terribly sensitive concerning their fashion. If you say that you don't like their fashion and style, it doesn't mean that you don't like them.

I, for one, don't think that Princess Anne dresses tastefully (again, that doesn't mean I wouldn't like Anne herself).

I tend to like The Princess Royal's taste, as I am a bit tweedy myself.

I think right after Diana was engaged to Charles there was a formal occasion where the dress she wore made jaws drop to the floor. She was stunning. Anne dresses simply but tastefully I think. And the Queen ... wow. her styles in the pastels lately have simply made her glow.

Beatrice and Eugenie I think are obviously being dressed by folks that think what they should look like and it calls attention to the designer or the hat makers. What their real tastes are in private are their own.

Stop wearing contrasting separates that cut you in two. Try toning colours. And well done for losing a bit of weight; you look lovely.
