Dressing Your Lower Curves
We’re all about embracing our curves at Leading Lady. Our product line is specific to your upper body curves, ensuring your bras offer support, comfort and style for every occasion. But today we’re bringing you some fashion tips and tricks for your lower body curves. Yup, we’re talking about your booty. Because if your upper half is looking good, your bottom half should too.
Just like your curvy chest, we believe in embracing an ample booty. No more hiding under baggy sweats or oversized dresses. Today’s confident woman uses her curves as the asset they are.
Not sure how to tastefully dress those luscious curves on your lower half? We’ve got a few tips to keep you curvalicious and fashionable.
Balance Your Bottom for Perfect Harmony: Just like everything else in life, your outfits need a harmonious balance. If you have curves – top or bottom – they may need some counter-balancing, compliments of your natural body shape and a few strategic pieces in your wardrobe. First, if you have the good fortune of awesome curves on the top and the bottom, you may balance yourself naturally. Otherwise, by wearing a top with a voluminous neckline, a chunky necklace or big belt, you can off-set the booty the bit. Also, boot leg pants can equalize a larger bottom.
Wear Heels for a Firm Bottom: Whether you wear them every day or just on special occasions, heels lift and tighten the bottom. When you walk in heels, you have no choice but to clench your backside. It makes a big difference in tight jeans or skirts. Don’t believe us? Do a mirror or smart phone camera test and see for yourself. This will also give you a chance to practice wearing heels if you’re not accustomed to them.
Accentuate the Waist: Many curvy women are afraid to put any emphasis on the waist, but when you have a large booty, it’s the way to go. Fitted waist skirts and pants draw in the waistline to create a classic hourglass silhouette that couldn’t be sexier. If you don’t naturally have a slim waist, create the illusion with a thick, wide belt or high waistband.
Pick Pockets: If you feel your bum is overpowering your look, pick jeans, pants and shorts with pockets. The best pocks will be mid-sized, placed centrally on the back and with no bling. These help slim the backside, as will a solid, dark stain.
Drape Your Curves Ideally: Adding a little flair right above your curvy bottom can bring attention in all the right ways. A peplum feature on tops, jackets or skirts achieves this very nicely. If that’s not your style, try a high-waisted pleated skirt that sits atop the booty for a fun and flirty look.
Tailor Your Clothes to Fit Your Exact Curves: Not all of us can pick out clothes straight from rack and walk onto the runway. Most of us need a little tailoring, especially with a larger back side. Rather than buying pants that are too tight on the tush, buy a size larger and have your tailor cinch in the waist to fit your butt and thighs. This way you’ll get your perfect fit every time. Yes, it costs a little more, but looking fabulous is priceless, right?
Never Let Your Booty Get You Down: Even when dressing is a little more challenging, never let your finer assets frustrate you. Think about it this way, tons of clothes look better when they have curves to fill them out. Case in point: yoga pants, leggings, pencil skirts, shorts and most jeans. So turn that frown upside down and start loving your curves.
