3 ways to enhance your curves.

whenever i post in a curve-hugging dress {like here or here} i always get questions about how i made the outfit really pop. i’m always very open about the fact that i wear Spanx underneath body-con pieces to accentuate my curves. first, i don’t see any reason why a woman should be embarrassed or secretive about wearing Spanx. second, if Blake Lively and Kim Kardashian can openly talk about their reliance on Spanx, so can i. after all, we’re all just trying to look fab and celebrate our shapes, right?!

today i’m sharing three tips for enhancing your curves. nothing makes me feel more sexy and confident than rocking a tight dress that hugs my hourglass shape in all the right places. read below for some tried and true tips on enhancing those beautiful curves of yours.

1. dress for your body type

before we talk about what can help shape you underneath your clothes, you’ve got to decide what looks best to begin with. for example, i’ve found that high waisted jeans and a bodysuit are flattering for my shape. i think it’s a great look for curvy girls in general so if you haven’t jumped on the trend yet, i highly recommend trying it. i also love the way that wrap dresses hug my curves just right. part of being fashionable is knowing what works for your body type and what doesn’t. when you hit the mall or are online shopping, remember what works for you, then go in that lane and own it!

2. grab the Spanx

one of the most common questions i receive about Spanx is this: are Spanx body positive? i always say 100% yes! my reason: Spanx don’t hide your curves, they enhance them! they’re simply a great tool to celebrate your shape and flaunt what you’ve got. in today’s post, i’m wearing two types of the Power Conceal-Her Spanx {here and here}. i have other Spanx for other occassions, too! when i’m dressed in a formal gown or something that’s tighter than usual, i wear my trusty Higher Power Spanx, which are thicker. no matter the occasion, Spanx has a large selection of styles that are perfect for making you feel as good as you look.

3. the best accessory…

this will always be the most important tip i could give. i’ve said it a million times and i’ll keep saying it: confidence is the best accessory. be confident in yourself and what you’re wearing and it’ll shine through. your outfit should make you want to take on the world! if it doesn’t, then switch it up. you deserve to feel like your most beautiful self whether you’re out for a date night on the town, taking meetings, or attending an event. take care of yourself, dress to impress, hold your head high, and smile your beautiful smile. at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is that you feel confident in yourself.

    Babe — you are totally rocking that red dress!! It is gorgeous and so are you in it.

    I love the tulip hem on the pink skirt. I find it is super flattering for us curvy girls. It shows fof our curves and little leg but is still perfect for an office.

    Love your looks! I’m all about Spanx when it comes to tight dresses. It makes me feel put together. And I have to say bodysuits and high waisted jeans are great for any body type. They make everyone look good!
