Curvy Dilemma: Dressing Up a Full-Figured Woman

What do Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Kate Upton, and Scarlett Johansson have in common? Come on, this is easy… it’s their voluptuous curves, of course! Were you thinking of anything else?

Yup, these Hollywood hotties are probably the first names that would come to mind if we say the word “curves“. Call it an hourglass figure, call it curvaceous, call it full-figured, call it anyway you like, but this body type are considered by many to be the ideal female body. What with those plump busts, hips, and behinds, coupled with a narrow waistline, what could be the problem, right?

Well, for some “full-figured” women apparently, it’s been hard. Some say that carrying that huge junk in the trunk is not as glamorous as it looks on TV with the Kardashians. One of the biggest problems they have? Finding clothes that would fit their rather “healthy” figure. That’s because full-figured women often say that they look fat (even if they’re not) in loose fitting clothes, and if they go for smaller sizes, the clothes would look rather too tight.

If you have the same full figure and you feel that you’re stuck in the same dilemma, here are some pointers to consider:

Altering Clothes To Your Size

As earlier mentioned, curvy women are usually having problems finding the perfect fit. The solution? Find a great tailor. This will help you make sure everything you buy fits proportionately to your body. This will also help you accentuate your greatest assets—namely your behind and your chests.

Accentuating Your Waist

One of your greatest assets is definitely your tiny waist, and so you should flaunt it. How? By accentuating your outfits with belts. Dresses with simple designs on the waist area like the maxi dress featured above will also help keep people’s eyes on your waist.

Avoid Oversized Clothes

Again, you should flaunt those lovely curves all the time; and oversized clothes would definitely do the exact opposite of that. Flowy tops and dresses will not only make you look big, they will make you look sloppy. With a perfectly fit dress, however, you’ll definitely look sexier.

Take Advantage of Patterns

Patterned dresses and other clothing items create optical illusion. If you want to look a bit slim, you can either use various clothing with patterns on it, except of course those with horizontal lines as it will make you look wide.

Go Black

Nothing beats the color black in making us people look slimmer so take advantage of it as well. A black dress, for instance, will not only make you look elegant, it will also help create an illusion that will make you look thinner.

Of course, these are pretty helpful tips I gave you but the best advice I’m going to give you is you should always love yourself no matter what body type you are. Keep in mind that being confident and owning your body will really go a long way in how the people around you will perceive you.
