COMFORT IS BEAUTY

Full Figure Fashion: Television’s Leading Ladies Celebrate Their Curves

It’s always refreshing to see women in the spotlight celebrate their curves and embrace full figure fashion.  Curvy celebrities serve as role models that reflect the image of the majority of women.  They remind us that there is natural beauty in everyone regardless of her dress size, body shape and weight.

Today’s full figure fashion review reminds us that real women have curves and they are beautiful indeed!  And we love the curves on two of televisions enduring stars:  Mariska Hargitay and Kirstie Alley.  Let’s check out some of their full figure fashion statements.

Mariska Hargitay is an icon for body confidence and celebrating her own curvy body.  The Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star, mother of three and daughter of actress Jane Mansfield was featured on the cover of Ladies Home Journal mariska-hargitay_Ladies Home Journal coverlast year and discussed, among other things, how and why she embraces her natural shape.  In her interview she said, “I love my curves because they scream, ‘I’m a mama!’… I want to be on this planet for a long time, so I try to eat things that make me feel good and make me strong. But I also love food and I love life: Some days having that extra bowl of pasta and a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup means more to me than being thin.”

Mariska certainly looks like she feels good in this stunning lilac sweet-heart neck dress in her LHJ cover photo.  The hue of the dress is beautiful on her skin tone and the diagonal creases complement her curves impeccably.  Plus we love love love the high slit, showing mariska hargitay_redcarpet-fashionawards.comoff her sexy legs, with the tapered draping skirt falling elegantly to the floor.  Beyond her dress, Mariska exudes confidence in her pose and smile.

In November 2013, Mariska was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  She looked incredible in this black, A-line dress.  The low-cut neckline shows off her cleavage tastefully and the darts towards the waistline create a clean, slimming upper-body frame.  The dainty detail on the shoulder and flared skirt are feminine and flirty, perfect for the occasion.  Leading Lady’s molded padded seamless underwire full figure bra works perfectly with this dress to lift the breasts, create a smooth bustline and support Mariska throughout the festivities surrounding her star ceremony.

The outspoken Kirstie Alley has been in the Hollywood spotlight for many decades from her early career on Cheers, to her film career, and now her self titled television series.  Throughout the years, Kirstie’s size has fluctuated and she has been Kirstie Alley_courtesy of fanshare.comcandid about her weight issues, even documenting them in a reality series.  Now at 62, Kirstie has found a happy median and rocks her curves on television and the red carpet.

Kirstie struts her stuff at the Hollywood Film Festival in this hip hugging black cocktail dress.  The tapered straps are flattering on her arms and the bustline slit is sexy and chic.  The ruching on this dress is ideal for hiding bulges, while also following Kirstie Alley_courtesy of hollywoodreporter.comthe natural shape of the body.  To create a smooth cup and lifted bust, Leading Lady’s molded padded seamless wirefree full figure bra in black will complete this look.

Kirstie also looks amazing in this casual black wrap dress.  Wrap dresses are ideal for cinching the waist and tend to be flattering on every body type.  The three-quarter sleeve and pockets make this look fun and effortless.  Blonde Kirstie always looks fabulous in black!  Comfortable wrap dresses pair nicely with Leading Lady’s crossover front closure racer back leisure bra that dips low in front and is simple to dress and remove.

How are you celebrating your curves?  Hopefully you do it as gracefully as Mariska and Kirstie.  Join our full figure fashion conversation on Facebook, Twitter, Google + and Instagram.
