5 Hot Outfits That Celebrate Your Curves

Plus, the dos and don’ts for dressing a curvaceous figure.



Curves. Love them or hate them, if you got them, you may as well flaunt them! Whether you’re naturally curvy or finding yourself a little curvier after the festive season, there’s no reason you can’t dress to show off and accentuate your figure. Just look to supermodel Ashley Graham and superstar Rebel Wilson for inspiration.

With a few style tips and tricks in your arsenal, you learn how to focus attention on the right parts of your body. If you have a pear-shaped or hourglass figure, highlight your waist. In the case of an apple figure, focus on accentuating your bust and legs.

Whatever your body shape, there are on-trend styles just waiting to be added to your cart.

The Dos and Don’ts of Dressing a Curvy Figure

DO Avoid overly tight clothes

Ideally, choose clothes that are neither too tight nor too loose. Too tight and they’ll accentuate the parts you don’t want; too loose and you’ll get lost in them. You’ll want some tailoring to give your body definition and shape.

DON’T be afraid of bright colours and patterns

Especially where you want to highlight your best features, for instance your bust or waist. Accessories are also great for drawing the eye to certain features. Belts are ideal to accentuate the waist. Patterns can also be used for their slimming effects, such as vertical stripes, which elongate the body.

DO wear dark bottoms

Darker colours like navy, charcoal and black help slim the figure and are great for wearing on the bottom half.

DO choose high-rise

When it comes to trousers and particularly denim, high-rise is best. A high-raise waist will accentuate your middle, giving your figure more definition as everything gets tucked away.

DO balance out your hips with wide-legged trousers

Wide-legged pants and fuller skirts will help balance out hips and shoulders and create a poised silhouette.

DON’T forget the heels

High heels are a great way to give your body proportion and the overall illusion of length. For more curvaceous women, block heels, wedges and ankle straps are ideal.

DON’T skimp on shape underwear

Paying attention to your underwear is critical. From the right bra to figure-hugging pants without a VPL, the correct undergarments will ensure everything stays in the right place while offering comfort throughout the day.
