Adding Curves to a Boyish Figure

by Lovely Girl | in Solutions, The Tell All

Fashion Stylist Jenny Altman gives Solutions to women from SPANXHaving a boyish shape is not a bad thing. It simply means you are more straight up and down than other woman and may be lacking in “traditional” female curves. Curvy women think women with boyish figures are lucky, but of course the grass is always greener. Boyish figures have less accentuation at the bust, butt and waistline. The good news is that it’s really easy to “fake” curves. With a few great styling tips and some help from enhanced underpinnings and accessories, any boyish figure can look more hourglass in just minutes.

Solutions on how to add curves where you need them-

Dress to define your waist and add volume to your bust and butt area. These dresses will give you an hourglass shape even if you are devoid of natural curves:

A work dress by J Crew

A retro style dress from Anthropologie

A printed number from Shopbop

An evening dress from BCBG

Choose bras and panties that will enhance your female parts. See boyish figures, you get to wear the things curvy women can only dream of:

A lightly padded bra by Calvin Klein

A very padded bra by DKNY (it adds two cup sizes)

A butt enhancing Booty Booster by Spanx (featured above)

A body shaping waist cincher from Chantelle

3-Don’t forget how important accessories can be. They are the finishing touch to every look:

Try patterned tights for added depth, like an allover print or fishnet by Wolford

Don’t shy away from ankle-strap shoes (a curvy woman’s no-no) like these from Brian Atwood

Add a belt in a pop of color like this one from J Crew. It will draw attention to your little waist, adding the appearance of volume above and below.
