Who said curvy girls don’t have many options? Like HELL they don’t! Curvy women have just as many options as smaller-sized women. The key to styling your curves is to make sure to accentuate your best assets and to select pieces that won’t make your silhouette look bulky.
The first concept to keep in mind when styling your curves is to understand your shape and size. The second concept is to identify a few styles that work for you and then rock them like there’s no tomorrow! Once you have successfully accomplished those two rules, your options are unlimited.

Once you have successfully established your size and shape, the first thing a woman should do is invest it proper and well-fitting undergarments. Not only will you feel more comfortable, but your clothes will also fit better. Why? Because, you will have the additional support that you need!
V-neck tops look especially great on curvy women. They’re the perfect neckline when you want your body to look thinner, and longer. V-necks elongate your look and draw the eye downwards. If you have a fuller bust area, choose v-necks that stop right above your cleavage to achieve a leaner, meaner form.
Wrap it Up!
Wrap dresses are a good choice for all sizes but, they are even greater fits for the curvy girl. They enhance your body by giving it the hourglass shape that perfectly conceals all flaws and really gives you that cinched and ultra-sexy look. If dresses aren’t your thing, you may want to opt for a wrap blouse. Whether long sleeved, 3/4, or sleeveless, the wrap blouse is perfect for work or play and will also accentuate your best curves without complication!
Thigh-High and Knee-High Boots
Thigh-high boots or knee-high boots can also be a curvy girl’s best friend. Adding a high boot to an outfit will elongate the legs. Not only will this give you a more statuesque frame, it will draw attention to your lower limbs. During colder months, throw on your favorite knee-high or thigh-high boot with a fun and flirty dress and edgy leather jacket. Now, off you go!
Belt it Out!
Ever thought about incorporating a belt into your look to accentuate those curves?
Adding a belt to an outfit containing a curvier frame will narrow the waist and give the appearance of an hourglass silhouette. The next time you consider putting on your favorite dress, try experimenting with your look by adding a belt. You might be surprised by how much you can bring in that waistline.
Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize!
Lastly, accessorizing your outfit is essential for all women! Add a great pair of shades or a chunky statement necklace to your look to pull everything together. A woman should always add at least one accessory to an outfit to complete her look. This is a universal rule that holds true for every woman, not just the curvaceous ones.
