Styling Tips For Curvy Girls

Curvy women are the most fun to style. Why? Because they have curves and that beautiful natural shape that needs to be emphasised. The only hard thing about dressing curvy women, is sometimes they want to hide their shape instead of embrace it. This post today gives you some tips on how to style your clients to make the most of their curvy figure.

Wear the right size

Rule #1: Always wear the right size. If you wear an item that’s too small, it will make you look bigger than you are. Wearing items that are too big hide your shape and can make you look bulky instead of showing your curves. Always wear the size that fits the best so it flatters your body shape.


Wear Heels

Wearing heels gives the illusion of appearing taller and slimmer. If your legs look longer, they will also appear thinner. Shoes with pointy toes will help make your legs seem longer. Be aware of ankle straps and where they sit on the ankle; you want it to be on the smallest part of your ankle (like the picture above) or it will make your legs appear wider.

Try a Wrap Dress

Wrap dresses should be your best friend. They are very forgiving and emphasis that beautiful hourglass shape. They generally tie at your natural waist, which is the slimmest area of your body. The gathering detail that comes with the design emphasises your curves and keeps the eye busy, not allowing it to stop at any one point.


Embrace Your Curves

Work out the best way to show off your curves and use it to your advantage. If you love your small waist, emphasise it by wearing high rise bottoms and waist belts. Most women would kill to have curves, so never hide them. 


Avoid The Infamous Shift Dress

This style should be avoided at all costs for curvy women. It is not flattering at all. It completely hides your shape and can actually make you look bigger than you are. They may be comfy and come in great colours and prints, but they are not for you!

Emphasis Your Assets

You need to highlight your best assets and direct any focus away from the areas your self-conscious about. It is all about pointing out the positive and hiding the negative.


Dress With Confidence

The most important thing to remember is to dress with confidence. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Embrace your looks and have confidence in your appearance. The world would be a very boring place if we all looked the same!
