5 Clothing Styles That Highlight Your Curves
Slim the Waist with a Comfy Wrap Dress
A wrap dress is a go-to when you’re looking for effortless clothes for curves. This style of dress looks beautiful on every body shape and is super comfy to boot.
The wrap cinches the smallest part of your waistline, which can be further highlighted by comfortable plus size shapewear. A wrap dress also accommodates any bust size with a flattering v-neckline. A cami or full slip can be worn for full coverage. If you feel you want more lift and volume up top, try adding a few bold necklaces to draw the eye and accentuate those curves.
Accentuate a Curvy, Hourglass Shape with a Belted Top or Dress
Belting your top or dress may be the oldest trick in the book when it comes to accentuating curves, and we’re not ones to argue with this tried and true style! Like a wrap dress, a belt around a sweater dress or flowy top will accentuate your enviable curves by cutting through the bulk of the garment and defining your waist.
Have Fun With Clothes For Curves, Like in Fitted and Flared Peplum Tops
A peplum top is another beautiful curve-booster. When you want to add volume, ruffles and unique details are an eye-catching way to have your clothes create the illusion of curves.
The tight upper bodice of a peplum top flares nicely at the bottom, giving volume to your hips while slimming the waistline. This style top looks great with high-waisted jeans, like our High Rise Skinny Jeans. Plus, the pockets on these jeans are placed higher to give your bum the illusion of a lift!
Love the Leg-Lengthening Appeal of High Waisted Pants
We love high-waisted pants when it comes to clothes for curves and you should, too. A waistband that hits at or above the belly button will slim your tummy and smooth any sign of a muffin-top.
Tucking a slim-fitting shirt into the waistband of your pants will also accentuate your amazing curves. Try color-blocking a bright shirt with our Rachel Cotton Stretch Shaping Legging for a figure-flattering, pulled-together look. Bonus perk: a high waistline makes your legs look longer!
Accentuate Curves with an A-Line Skirt
If you want to emphasize your bum, throw out loose, limp fabrics and opt for a figure-hugging A-line skirt that will draw in the waist and flare outward. A form-fitting top or a bodysuit, like our Short Sleeve Shaping Thong Back Bodysuit, is a great piece of clothing for curves, and can be tucked in to complete the style. This versatile outfit can be worn from the office to a dinner date; simply add heels and you are out the door.
When dressing to accentuate your curves, remember that it’s the attention to detail, form, and color that makes all the difference. Finding the right bra is also key as you want it to be properly fitted and have the right amount of support for you.
The best clothes for curves are those that fit, so consulting a tailor is also a great idea. Every body is different, so try mixing and matching the above styles to find what you love to wear!
