When it comes to wardrobe staples for curvier women, a Little Black Dress is right up there. Not only are they slimming, versatile and sexy, there’s a shape that suits everyone. From a vintage-inspired satin dress and figure-hugging bodycon to flattering empire and classic tea dresses – the key is finding out which one’s perfect for you. Luckily, eBay Curve has just the answers…
If you’re the proud owner of a pear-shaped body, your shoulders and bust are probably smaller than your bottom, so opt for a dress that draws attention to your shoulders and bust like this sleeveless Grecian-style one. This will skim your curves beautifully and accentuate slim shoulders for an ultra-feminine look.
Think Christina Hendricks – that classic look. Your shoulders and hips are the same size, but that waist of yours is a lot smaller. Hurrah, this is considered by many as the perfect body shape. So, what better way to celebrate those enviable curves than with a figure-hugging dress like this sleek sequin panel dress to sculpt and flatter those delicious curves.
It may be winter, but put away those long dresses and step out in one that’ll really show off those sexy legs of yours. Classic apple-shaped woman like to draw attention away from their mid-sections, so choosing a dress with a fuller skirt and smaller waist like this belted flared dress could be your new best friend.
Many women admire you for your natural large bust, but as proud as you are of your assets, they can be difficult to dress. That’s where the perfect LBD comes in. With the clever use of asymmetric necklines or V-necks like this classic wrap dress you can show them off without over-accentuating them. Yay!
From Rebel Wilson to Kim Kardashian, these days it’s all about the curves. But if – unlike Kim – you’re not comfortable with showing off all of your natural assets, elongate your frame with a maxi dress. It might be more Long Black Dress than Little Black Dress, but this striking embellished dress is worth breaking rules for. Just check out that decorated waistline for a look that will stand out at any party…
