Here are my top tips for dressing a curvier figure: 1. Accentuate Your Waist Anything that accentuates your figure is always a plus. Form fitting dresses and skirts are figure flattering – look for ones that are cut on the diagonal or bias. 2. Embrace Shape Wear Whether you’re a size 0 or 22, proper undergarments are essential. Shapeware creates slimmer and smoother bodylines under your dresses, tops, skirts, and trousers. 3. Colour Block Your Outfits Limit your outfit to 2-3 colors and pair them with a plain neutral. Do not wear bright colors around your trouble spots; use a darker or neutral shade to downplay the area. 4. Show a little skin Don’t be afraid to show some skin in unexpected places, but be tactical about it. It’s easy for a curvaceous woman to look vulgar without even trying. That doesn’t mean you should shy away from sultry clothing. A slit on the side of your evening gown is sexy and slimming. An exposed back in an otherwise modest dress offers a surprising twist. 5. Avoid Oversize Clothing Baggy tops and dresses are comfortable, but they’re not flattering on a curvy figure. Instead of hiding your curves and trouble spots, they make you look pregnant and sloppy. Throw out that tent you’re so fond of and replace it with some maxi dresses. Look for those with a V-neck halter to elongate your body and emphasize your curves. A dress with an empire waist hits under your bust line to highlight a small waist. 6. Love Your Curves Whether you’re plus-sized or model-slim, no item of clothing could outshine your feeling of confidence. A sexy woman is someone who owns her curves. Identify your strong points and use clothing to emphasize them. The color and shape of your clothing could also minimize your problem areas. However, it is your confidence that will draw attention, so if a dress makes you feel happy and sexy, go ahead and wear it.
