“I never bothered with myself earlier because I was FAT”, said one of my BFFs during lunch one Saturday. She has visibly lost some pounds and is looking gorgeous. To me off course, she always seemed presentable and well put together, but that statement got me thinking. I never thought of her as plus sized or fat. So many women suffer from body shaming because of how magazines and mainstream media shows a woman’s body. As I thought of all the other people I knew who were curvier than most, it struck me that they always wore clothes that made them look boxy rather than embrace and show off their curves.
Ladies; who better to take a cue from than this season’s Hollywood favorite’s – Octavia Spencer and Mellissa McCarthy. To refresh your memory, they were recently nominated for the Oscar award for their supporting roles in The Help & The Bridesmaids; respectively.
Their looks for the Oscar’s were full of bling & gathers that tucked in right under their bust, accentuating their assets!
So how do we bring these babies home? Your motto should be, if you’re curvy and want to show it wear a wrap dress! Or a pleated dress! Try getting your hands on similar numbers
- V necks are better than round one’s because they show off your neck line and collar bone and take the attention off your chest.
- Sheer sleeves are sexy even while they help cover up flab!
