Remember, even within the curvy community, body shapes can significantly vary. You may identify as an apple, pear, hourglass, or any other body type. Let's briefly explore how to highlight these specific body types.
For apple-shaped bodies, where weight is typically distributed around the midsection, you might want to focus on highlighting your legs and decolletage. Opt for A-line dresses or tunics that flow away from the waist and don't cling to the midsection. V-neck tops can create an elongating effect, drawing attention upwards.
Pear-shaped women, with their broader hips and narrower shoulders, can balance their silhouette by adding volume to the upper body. Try styles like boat-neck tops or statement sleeves. A-line skirts that gently drape over the hips can be particularly flattering.
Hourglass figures, characterized by a balanced bust and hip ratio with a defined waist, are well-suited to fitted or wrap-around styles that highlight the waist. High-waisted skirts and pants, as well as belts at the waist, can further emphasize this body type's natural curves.
Each body is unique, and these are just starting points. Experiment and find out what makes you feel fantastic!
