We are all familiar with the Kardashian family, known for their TV-show and their full-figured bodies: Kim, Khloé, Courtney and Christiana. Wait, what? Christiana? Well, Christiana is a very close friend of mine, an up and coming blogger (lady.com.gr) and definitely knows how to work her body angles. Her curvy body shape can totally designate any kind of outfit. Characterised by a curvy bust and hips with a slimmer waist, the hourglass body type is often considered as the ideal female body shape. This particular body line highlights the set of your sexy, killer curves.
To make the most of your gorgeous figure, look for styles and fabrics, that reduce bulk and volume around your feminine curves and bring attention to your neckline. Choose designs that bring the eye to the centre, by wearing wider and lower necklines. Suitable options for necklines would be scoop, sweetheart or square neckline. A great idea of what can totally show of your curves is a bodycon dress! These dresses first came to prominence in the nineties, rising in popularity today. Wearing a bodycon dress is a bold statement of self-esteem and body confidence. The name of the dress comes from a contraction of the phrase body conscious.
A bodycon dress is a one-piece figure hugging garment that clings tightly to the body from the bust to the lower hem. It typically has three lengths: upper thigh, mid thigh or knee. Bodycon dresses are usually made from elasticised material or composite material such as spandex or lycra, to give them enough elasticity to hug the figure smoothly. These tight fitting dresses are popular as evening wear, but are increasingly worn as day wear when correctly and creatively accessorised. Some bodycon dresses are strapless, while others have wide straps or sleeves. The neckline is typically low, showing a considerable amount of cleavage.
Keep attention around your bust and décolletage line e.g. use embellishments, colour, pattern. A high yoke which gathers or draped bodice is excellent camouflage for a heavy busted person. Also a 3/4 sleeve always flatters the hand line and adds a more classy look.
Girls with bigger body types, especially curves can pull off chunky, bold accessories better than their tiny, petite friends. Invest in a few long necklaces, big beaded bracelets and large hoop earrings. Stay away from anything thin and dainty, which will just be lost on you. You can also carry bigger bags than your little lady pals. Choose one that falls right at your best asset, be it your bust line, your waist or your hips. Have fun with big hair clips and barrettes as well!
It is always helpful, if you can find someone to look at for style ideas, tips, advice and inspiration. Celebrities like Scarlett Johansson, Salma Hayek, Monica Bellucci, Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez or in Christiana’s case, Kim Kardashian, have sexy, curvaceous figures! Find someone, whose style you do like and then try to figure out what can work for you. Follow their style and then sit back and wait for the compliments to come rolling in!
