I Wish That I Could Say That I Am Proud To Be Curvy…But I Am Not

Based on my measurements, I am actually more square. So, I must say that I am proud to be square. Even though the heavens dipped me in chocolate, it forgot the bodacious round bottom and cocoa cola bottle waist.  Whenever I shop for clothing, I find that most clothes are made for women with the curvier body type often seen on plus sized models. I have found that I have to trick my clothing into thinking they were made just for me.

Belts to cinch the waist and a-line dresses to build up my hips are little tid-bits that I have learned to give the illusion of curves. I love my body in all of its squareness. But there are times when curves would be nice. What are some tricks that you have learned to showcase your beautiful body…curvy or not?

  1. I have the waistlines of every pair of jeans I own tailored. My hips require a pair of pants bigger than my waist would like. By tailoring, I get the perfect fit for about $15 extra dollars well spent!

  2. Try out V-neck sweaters, these can be flattering on you. If you prefer higher necklines, something square (!) can be also good for you. Wear a darker color where you want to draw attention away. Try not to wear the same color everywhere. Take your body apart with colors! You will also get a lot of use out of a fitted black blazer. It will be something you should invest in. Cheers! 🙂
