Clothes for Curvy Body: Learn How to Choose the Right One

clothes for curvy women

About dressing up a curvy figure, the bombshell model Candice Huffine said, “Some of the rules for dressing a curvier shape are so archaic, I really think it’s time for a shake-up. If you think of your wardrobe as a hiding place, how can it be any fun?” Relating to her words, in this article we are going to talk about how to choose the proper clothes for curvy women. This will help you explore the fashion world more for a plus size wardrobe.

Rule of Thumb

The first rule about choosing the right outfit is – there is no rules. Nothing can be worse than killing the idea of getting dressed. You should always wake up with an excitement of having fun with your outfit and that will make you look different from others. Try to have an original fashion statement. Even though there are so much talking goes on about what should and shouldn’t a curvy woman can wear, but one shouldn’t actually be afraid of trying out new things.

Most Flattering Styles

Your style depends totally on your figure shape. If you have a thinner waist but full bust and hip then a classic bodice with a full skirt could be the ultimate figure flatterer. If you have a flat stomach then try a narrow fitted pencil dress. And you can always go out in flared maxi dress. For casual wear, a colorful top with a nice jacket and a nice trousers/jeans will do the proper work.

Feel Free to Wear Prints

There is an idea going on that fuller figure women should wear dark colors or black only. But I think there’s no limitation while choosing the color or print. It’s all about choosing the right silhouette first, and looking out for a pattern that has a flattering placement. If the idea of head-to-toe prints is still daunting, then why not try a fun tailored jacket and keep your basic choices underneath?

Use Slimming Props

A belt has always been an easy fashion fix for too long. Often it can complicate a look but if you know how to use it and what kind of outfit you are wearing, then belt is the best option for you to make your waist look slimmer. A nice and classic pumps give your legs taller look. Try to avoid anything that strap around the ankle, as it cuts off the line off the leg while wearing a dress.

Good Tailoring is Always Important

It is important to remember the good tailoring as that is how you decide which part of your body you’d like to enhance. Also you can cleverly take away focus from the parts of your body you don’t feel comfortable to show off. Even if all parts of your outfit are not well tailored you can still fix it with a nice blazer. This always works as a secret weapon for plus size figures.

Stripes can be a good choice in this summer for a great look. A combination of think and thick strips are great choice to wear but it is better to avoid stripes contains more than 3 colors else the outfit can overwhelm your beauty and tough to accessorize.

Animal Print:

Animal print is a great choice for a bold and firm look in this summer. You can wear a animal printed top with solid skirt or a short dress but avoid wearing multiple animal prints, for example, Leopard print with zebra mixed! It looks messy!


Wear colorful long necklace, chunky bracelet and long earrings with a bug bag to make the look bold and smart.


Don’t put on excess make-up as it makes you look clumsy and exaggerate. Make the look natural with light color lipstick or you can apply gloss or lip gel. But if you are fanatic about long nails, you can put on nail paint according to your wish or you can also do different manicure design on nails as per your preference and styling patterns.

Don’t do an updo or a simple ponytail, as summer is a season for parties, messy bun is always preferred than a formal or a comb-up hair style!


Wear slippers or snickers for casual hang-out. For office-wear you can go for pumps, but for party or wedding Stiletto or Sandals are always suggested.

As summer is a season of party and color, don’t make your curve shy-away or down your enthusiasm to enjoy this season at its best!
