Yes, you can dress to accentuate your best bits and disguise any problem areas! Our fashion team shares some useful advice on how to dress for your body shape and size.
Super curvy fashion fixes
- A ruched dress teamed with a trench coat will enhance your shape.
- Long layered necklaces will lengthen your body.
- Go for a red dress, it’s the must-be-seen-in colour of the season.
- Heels will elongate your legs.

- Draw the eye upwards with bold prints.
- Cinch in your waist with a box cut jacket or belt.
