The Curvy Girl's Guide to Summer Dresses

Saturday, September 20, 2014
I consider myself a curvy girl and I have figured out a few simple ways to find summer dresses that fit and flatter my figure. Here are a few tips and pieces of advice that can help any curvy lady out in the summer.

If you have curvy hips
I am tall and curvy so sometimes I have a hard time finding flattering dresses. For a curvy girl the empire waist is your best friend, especially if you're a pear shape like me. The reason that the empire waist line is best is because it highlights your smallest area, the section of your torso just under your bust line.
If you want to make your full chest more proportional
A V-neck on a wrap dress will flatter your chest better than any other style. The wrap function allows you to control how much cleavage you show and also has a similar effect to the figure as the empire waist-line does.

If you have great legs
You should show them off in a cute Mod-style dress. They are a bit loose and short so they show you're legs but don't cling to you. I really like the ones that show little or none of my chest because when you have on something short, you should tone down everything else. You want to look classy and sassy, not floozy.
Other slimming tricks that accentuate your best features
Wearing a thick belt at your waist or above it makes your waist look smaller and your figure more proportional.

Trapeze or bubble dresses are also a good choice, if you want to down play a large chest or thick hips. They're also really chic. I have one that is about knee-length and it is adorable. Square-neck collars are especially flattering.
Avoid ruffles, especially around your chest. If it is at the bottom of your dress, it's probably okay though.

Make sure you get pieces that fit. I see so many attractive women wearing too-tight outfits. It looks awful. I even noticed that on a recent episode of How I met Your Mother, JLo was a guest star and she had arm fat hanging out of her dress. JLo is not fat, but the dress was too snug and it made her look heavier than she is.
Heels are great
They lengthen your legs and make you look more put-together. You can wear them with anything but especially with semi-plain dresses or casual looking frocks. They really do help most outfits for curvy ladies, hopes Sarah Townsend.
