“I’m proud of my body. I’m finally in a good place and learning to love me for me, and not somebody else’s standards,” said Khloe Kardashian.
Have you heard of the saying that ‘men prefer curves?’ Well, it looks like it could be true after all. Scientific studies revealed that men found women with hourglass figures more attractive than the skinny women. The study featured in Living Fit said that guys prefer women with a few curves than those who are fashionably thin like Posh Spice or Paris Hilton.
However, having a curvy figure can be a curse and a gift all at the same time. If you don’t know how to choose the right clothes, then you can end up looking uncomfortable in your clothes. But, if you are aware of your body size and curves, then you will be able to boost your self-confidence, inspire others, and empower yourself while steering clear of ill-fitting clothes.
Here are some effective tips on how you and other full-figured women can maximize your curves to look stylish and fashion-forward all the time:
Emphasize the most important parts
“A woman’s curves are what make her,” said fashion brand Woman Within. “Emphasize the most important part of the one’s body, giving the right amount of confidence – no matter her shape, size or height.” So, when choosing the right clothing, opt for the one that focuses on your best assets, maybe it’s your hips or your chest. Pay attention to the fit (opt for something not too loose or too tight) and those with an empire waist need to accentuate your best curves.
All types of shoes work for you
Don’t believe that some shoes are only made for skinny girls, because as far as we’re concerned, there’s no label as such. While the majority of people may say that stilettos should only be worn by the dainty, full-figured women can also wear stilettos if they pair it with the right clothes, such as monochromatic look by choosing dark colored tights and shoes with a wider heal to support your back.
Check how the models do it
Get inspiration from none other than the professionals themselves. Currently, there are many amazing plus-size models who are changing the way we perceive beauty, as featured in Woman’s Day. It also pays off to check out the selection of the best outfits for certain seasons – from knitted apparels for winter to the softest cotton shirt for summer. It should give you an idea of the mix and matches you can do to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to fashion.
Aside from the clothes you wear, the most important fashion tip that works for all styles is to bring your confidence and best smile to the party. Loving your body means confidently spreading good vibes and showing the world that you can overcome any challenges that come your way.
