A Sensual Curvy Statement

The ramp and the print circuit have always been fascinated by the thin, anorexic looking female frames for time immemorial. So much so that the moment a girl steps into her teens, her awareness about weight related concern almost prioritises her other chores of life.

We as a world have been obsessed with the idea of a perfect 10 figure , but come to think of it, only as much as a mere 30 per cent of us are lucky to have such skinny frames and a metabolism to be envy of. What about the rest 70- per cent? Should we sulk under the bed or just be happy in our skin and appreciate and pamper our uniqueness? Well with the likes of Pamela Anderson, Kim Kardashian and ofcourse the Bollywood sultry sirens Bipasha Basu and Sushmita Sen, the trend of curvy women has set its roots quite deep for now.

Many designers and fashion brands are launching special collections for curvy women that not just increase their sex appeal but also helps flatter their curves the right way. One needs to flaunt the right attitude besides some well fitted silhouettes to grab eyeballs, remember a skimpy outfit is not the only way to do so. Check out some of these easy and quick ways to dress up like a diva irrespective of your size.

• Choose tops and blouses with a feminine touch to them, such as ruffles. Lace on the neckline or sleeves. Also with a belt string thin metallic or beaded belt or even a satin ribbon tied on to it, one can create a beautiful illusion of a thin waist.
• Stick to the darker hues as much as possible as these tend to make you look slim and hide the flab too. Colours such as cobalt blue, emerald green, girly purple and even the mud browns are hot this season, so make the most of them.
• Knee length dresses are the most appropriate garment for those who have a broader bottom. Opt for the ones in floral prints, the digital designs or just a multi coloured fusion outfit for a classy get up
• Dressing up in formals can be made delectable by adding a few pencil skirts with fitted shirts. Ensure that the sizes of the skirt and the shirt are neither too loose nor too fitted.
• Steer clear of horizontal stripes as they make you look wider and broader. Opt for stripes that are vertical or diagonal.
• When sporting denims, look for nice girly tunics in fabric like nylon and georgette that do not cling to the skin. Or else, wear a stretch tee and deck it up with a tiny shrug and a couple of accessories for a chic look.

You know your body the best and can think beyond these tips to decide what flatters it the most, so experiment, set your own trends and carry your curves with élan.
