All medications have side-effects; some just happen to be more severe than others. For instance, a common side-effect of prescription medication is weight gain or water retention. This can be frustrating for people who were once thin and can no longer wear the clothing and styles they have come accustomed to. Luckily, there are plenty of fashion designers who are aware of this problem and have designed clothes that flatter rounded figures.
One thing you have to remember when you are taking medication that has this side-effect is not to let your appearance damage your self-esteem. You are not gaining weight because of laziness or anything that is your fault. Just be happy that the medication is treating the problem. You can have a fashion sense no matter what size you are.
Fashion has made some great strides in the plus size departments. You can find outfits that flatter any body type or size. Sure, you won’t be able to wear those skinny jeans, and other types of styles that are designed for the thin, but you can still look fashionable and pretty.
Weight gain that comes as a result of medication is often in the form of water retention. A lot of the time this is seen in the legs. You can hide this problem by wearing straight leg pants instead of the form-fitting ones you’ve been used to. If you have weight gain around you middle, you can wear thicker material to hide the rolls.
It takes a little more effort to look good when you are overweight, but it is possible.
