12 Must Have Garments for Curvy Girls

April 25, 2018

Hey, curvy girl! Feeling comfortable in your curves is a process, and it begins when you are willing to try new things. Perhaps, you have never tried wearing a dress, because you may think: “This is not for me". Let me illustrate this point with a personal experience.

When I was younger, I used to think that red lipsticks weren’t for me. I thought that red lipsticks were only for women with fair skin. I wanted to wear a red lipstick, but I was afraid of what people could say, or if I was pretending to be someone else. But an unexpected day I told myself, “Let’s try this, what’s the worst thing can happen?" I took action, and I loved it! That was the way I realized I needed to try new things in my life. That small change helped me understand that change is extremely necessary and that the best things in life are outside your comfort zone.

When you’re insecure about your image every change seems like a huge step to a different new world, and that uncertainty makes you feel anxious. I know how it feels, I know that sometimes you need to hear that you’re not alone in this world, that somebody went through something similar, somebody to advice you and push you to try those things that will make your life better.

So, this is my invitation to you curvy girl! stop wearing boring basic shirts and jeans. Give yourself an opportunity to try new things, an opportunity to embrace and love your shape!

I want to share with you, these 12 garments that you need to include in your closet to make it more fun. 😀 Give them it a try, you won’t regret it!

High-waisted pants

High-waisted pants will make your legs look longer and thinner. Skinny pants will accentuate the volume of your legs. On the contrary, straight pants will dissimulate the dimension of your hips and legs.

Leggings and blouses below the hip line

Leggings and blouses below the hip line are a good mix, avoid wearing leggings with body-hugging tops. Try loose silhouettes for your tops.

There are hundreds of beautiful low heels that are comfortable. I recommend having the most basics colors like black and nude, you can mix these colors with everything!

Nothing is worse than having the perfect outfit but not having the right foundation to pull it off. This kind of lingerie will make you look sexy, feminine, and thinner.
