Great Styles Tips for Curvy Figures

Curves can be celebrated with the right styles!  Here are our top tips…..
Find styles that follow your shape, without clinging or sticking.
V-necks, Wrap over tops and dresses are better for the larger bust, also consider Cowl necklines and Bardot (off the shoulder) are flattering for curvy shapes.

Avoid elasticated waist lines as the gathers of material will add bulk above and below the elastic, unless it’s Empire line where the elastic is just under the bust if that’s your bodies most narrow point.  Ideally a waist should be tailored with vertical darts leading in to the waist band area or darts coming in to the bust will allow the fabric to follow your shape a little more closely.  Tailored front and elasticated back is often a really good and flattering combo in dresses, skirts and trousers.

Smaller prints tend to be more flattering than larger/bold patterns.  Be as colourful as you wish :-)
