Dressing for Curves
Hey Fashion Loves,
Majority of women have some kinda curves in their body that they must accommodate when getting dressed. Whether it's a curve in the front, behind or on the sides. Here are a few tips on how to accommodate those curves, so you don't have to compromise your style.
- Try high-waisted bottoms to help camouflage your mid-section.
- Banded tunic shirts and dressed usually don't flatter women with large mid-sections, it would help to stay away from those
- Making sure you are wearing the proper Bras so that your bust is flattering and not compromising
-Looser fitting shirts don't flatter women with large bust, fitted shirts work better
- Skater styled skirts or dresses, don't flatter women with a large rear, try instead fitted skirts and dresses ( Skater Skirts & dresses gives women without a large rear some added dimension)
- Consider what clothing looks like behind before considering to buy
- Making sure you have proper undergarments and shape wear so that when wearing tighter clothing it looks smooth
- Mini Skirts/dresses can be very uncomfortable and unflattering for women with protruding hips, try instead midi skirts ( the hem comes below the knee) this will give the same feel without the uncomfortability of pulling on your skirt
- Loose fitting bottoms (Boyfriend Jeans, Cargos) are possible for you, ensure to get a larger size than needed to accommodate your hip width. Essentially these style bottoms should hit at your lower waist.
- When picking your outfits, ensure to pick a loose fitting piece and a tighter fitting piece, when wearing a full loose fitting out you can cover up some of your best curves!
