Tips & Tricks For Dressing As a Curvy Woman
A curvy backside, full legs and a beautiful neckline: Sexy and feminine.
Most men and women love a feminine and curvy woman and the best example of this is Sophia Loren and Marylin Monroe.
There are many well-meant suggestions as to what “curvy woman” should wear. Yet only one thing really counts: The wearer has to feel comfortable. She has to find out what style suits her best and how it can underline her character.
Most importantly: Underline your natural figure instead of fighting against it.
There are no set rules as to what suits a “curvy woman” best. However, we did accumulate a few tips that will help underline your perfect style.
Slimming, and shaping cuts underline the figure and qualities of the wearer. Shift dresses, wrap dresses, long line blazers and soft cut midi dresses accentuate the body in a discrete way while looking feminine and modern. Tops with a V-cut neckline as well as wide cut collars flatter the face and stretch the figure. Soft-falling skirts should be combined with hip long jumpers. Trousers with a high waist, magically create a slimming waist line. A Long chasuble, preferably in the same colour as the sliming trousers, look elegant and sophisticated. A blazer, shirt and heels together with wide cut trousers create a perfect business look that suits any occasion.
Colours and Patterns
Should “curvy woman” only wear one colour, especially only dark colours to conceal? Not even close! Bright colours create a look. The wearer will appear positive while the colours support a stylish appearance. Yes, especially in a bigger size.
Patterns are feminine and definitely on trend.
An oversize design elegantly disguises any unwanted pounds and gives the wearer extra confidence. Whoever wishes to tackle the whole pattern theme a little more cautiously can combine any daring pattern with a one colour blazer. Less flattering are small print designs such as Mille Fleurs patterns.
Shoes & Accessories
High heels stretch the body and this is definitely true.
However, flat shoes are more comfortable and definitely not forbidden. It really depends on the look and what shoes go with it. Some sneakers and flats really complete an outfit and you could combine them with wide cut trousers.
As with everything in life, it is important to accentuate. Showcase your beautiful neckline. Empathise your waist with a slender belt. An A-line dress will help hide a little belly and draw the attention to your beautiful legs and ankles. Don’t hide under flowing robes. Show yourself as you are, comfortable with your sexy, feminine figure!
It's not just the clothes that make up the look: the often cited “total package” must be right. The charisma, as well as the makeup are just as much a part of the outfit as shoes and accessories. Be authentic and do not try to twist yourself into an outfit that is simply not your style.
As a general rule: Look for a good fit in dresses, pants and skirts! Always buy clothes in a comfortable size, not too small - not too big.
