I’m a gal who has always had a good set of hips! Curvy comes in all shapes and sizes, and when it’s easy to get caught in the trap of wanting what you don’t have (Victoria’s Secret doesn’t help with that one!), I’m trying hard to start appreciating what I do have — a healthy vessel that carries me through life!
That being said, when the weather starts to get warmer there is a tiny bit of me that starts to freak out a bit about my body being on show after months of Winter hibernation wearing jeans and oversized jumpers — and I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels that way!
We all have those little niggles that we feel a bit more self-conscious about, and instead of sitting here and telling you that you’re beautiful (which you are, and you already know that!) and to embrace your imperfections (which I’m sure that you are doing already), I’m going to encourage you to play to your strengths instead of hiding behind your weaknesses. What I mean here is, if you love your curvy-licious booty and hips, why not find a way to make these sexy attributes pop! Proud of your toned legs after hitting the gym hard over the past few months? Then get them on show!
The reality is that the average woman has curves, and you’re not alone in not being 100% content with your body. But luckily there are increasingly more styles of clothing and fashion hacks that help you embrace your bangin’ body in warmer weather without compromising on your sartorial status. Summer shouldn’t make you hide away cos you don’t feel comfortable in what you’re wearing! I put together some classic Summer styles as inspiration for you to embrace what you got and flaunt it with no reservations.
Also known as the ‘fit-and-flare’ style, this silhouette is tight at the waist and skims over the hips for a fun and flirty shape!
