#CurvyandGorgeous: 5 Fashion Hacks for Plus-Sized Women

“I love the idea of embracing your curves and loving yourself while expressing it through fashion.”
-Hayley Hasselhoff

Being curvy does NOT mean covering your curves. Rather it gives you all the more reason to embrace styles that flatter them. With the right proportion of cuts and colors, you can easily flaunt your curves at their sexy best. Here are five fashion hacks that can easily do the trick.

1. A-Line Dresses and Skirts

The logic is pretty simple- Pleats add volume while straight-cut bodycon styles tend to flash unwanted flabs. A-line cuts on the other hand fall straight covering the wrong places, flattering the right. You may also add a corset belt right below the ribs, which is the thinnest part of the waist. It gives an effect of an hourglass shape.

2. Wrap Dresses and Tops

Wrap dresses drape beautifully across the body, thus camouflaging any extra abdominal weight. Also, it falls on the neck as a “V” which is further flattering on plus sized bodies.

3. Peplum

Peplum tops/dresses work wonders in covering any unwanted bulges around the tummy. Since they are fitted on top they flatter the curves giving an illusion of an hourglass.

4. Side-Panels

Side panels shift the focus to the centre and flatter the curves. It is a boon to the curvy ladies. Side panelled clothing give you the freedom to wear any color or prints.

5. Layering

Lastly, layering works wonders on plus sized women. They work like side panels, the contrasting and color blocking shifting focus from problem areas.

Though the above fashion hacks give you the much needed boost, there is nothing that works like Confidence. A confident attitude can help you carry any style no matter what.
