Wardrobe Wednesday {Curvy Girls}

Hello all of you gorgeous, curvy girls! We’ve had some requests for what to wear for the fuller figured or curvy ladies out there recently. I am well versed in this area, since I am definitely curvy. :)

Before I offer all of those tips and tricks that work for me, I decided to do a little bit of research first. Here are some fabulous tips to keep in mind, plus some great tips that work for me:

  • 1. wear clothes that FIT! clothing that is too large can make you look larger and sloppy. clothing that is too tight can accentuate areas you don’t want highlighted. :)
  • 2. navy and black are very forgiving, but don’t forgot to pop color with a belt, scarf, necklace, earrings or shoes!
  • 3. just because it’s trendy, doesn’t mean it’s right for YOU. choose trendy clothing carefully.
  • 4. wear the right UNDERWEAR! find bras that fit and are smooth to round out those curves and compliment them.
  • 5. if you have an hourglass figure, play it up! wear belts and find clothing that cinches at the waist.
  • 6. if you are larger on top and smaller on the bottom, balance it out by wearing jeans or pants that flare a bit but are fitted through your hips. wear something on top that skirts over your larger areas.
  • 7. wear v-neck and tops that dip a bit. open up your neck and chest area. it draws more attention to your face by opening up that entire area.
  • 8. this goes for everyone: accessorize! wear large earrings that attract attention to your face or a cute belt that draws attention to your waist if that’s one of your smaller areas.
  • 9. wear heels! it makes you appear taller and elongates your legs. :)

Now that we’ve gone through those, let’s take a look at what I’ve put together! Remember these are just guidelines and suggestions. If you like what you see, visit the links posted below the photos for details on where to buy these fabulous items!

First up, a curvy mom plus family compilation.

I started with the mom. A long maxi (with spanx underneathe) can be very slimming as it skims over a lot of problem areas. Chevron stripes are very “in” right now and I thought this black and white number was very cute. Pop it with a little yellow on top (which will also cover your arms if that’s an issue), some large earrings and either flip flops or wedges. From there I moved onto the girl’s outfit. I found this adorable dress with different colors in it. Pulled the pink out by adding pink sandals…which brings me to the boy. I wanted to incorporate some more pink so I found this handsome striped polo. Who says boys can’t wear pink? Not me. :) Gray shorts went really well with this shirt and then tied right in with Dad’s gray shirt. Pair Dad’s shirt with some jeans and you have a no fuss outfit for him…because everybody knows Dad’s REALLY enjoy photoshoots (insert sarcasm). Make it easy on him, mkay?

And a few more examples for curvy ladies. The outfit on the left cinches at the waist and skirts over any bulges that may be occurring up top. Pair it with some fitted white jeans and a colored wedge. SUPER cute necklace adds some pop and you’re ready to go! The dress on the right is adorable and comes in several different colors. It also cinches at the waist with a tie. This dress doesn’t need much more than some jewelry and shoes. Easy peasy. I chose wedges that were open across the ankle because it helps to elongate the legs and slim the ankle. If you have heavy legs, you’ll want to steer clear of any sandal that goes around your ankle.
