6 Cute spring clothes every curvy Latina needs now!

One of the things I love the most about spring is the fashion. I'd take floral A-line skirts and maxi dresses over pants and jeans any day of the week. I'm all about chic, laid back clothes. But a lot of my friends have been complaining to me about the limited amount of styles they find for curvy (or plus-size) chicas. They claim that a lot of the trendy pieces out there don't necessarily flatter curves. But after doing quite a bit of internet browsing I proved them all WRONG!

5 Sweat-proof fajas perfect for spring AND summer!

My cousin, who recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, was telling me how she has absolutely NO time to start working out. Who can blame her? She literally had her daughter just weeks ago and between juggling a newborn and a 5-year-old son, there isn't exactly room on her schedule to hit the gym. So these days she's depending on her faja (and of course healthy eating) to help lose a few inches off her waist and tuck in her tummy. Her concern right now, though, is sweating like crazy wearing shapewear during the summer months. Ugh! Yea that sounds like a nightmare!

6 Celebs who LOVE their fajas

Once upon a time, fajas were something we thought were only for our old school mamás and abuelitas. Just the thought of owning shapewear (especially still in my 20s) seemed depressing to me.

5 Ways to fake a curvier figure

I can't get over how fabulous Eva Longoria looked at the Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life & Times of Katrina Gilbert movie premiere the other night. The former Desperate Housewives star, who has a naturally athletic/petite figure, looked curvier than ever and I believe it had everything to do with what she was wearing. That form-fitted peplum dress played up her shape, creating the illusion of an hourglass figure. It's funny how clothes can really transform the way your body looks.

7 Figure-flattering fashion trends we can all wear this year

I love fashion, but let's face it--a lot of the runway trends don't work for us real women. I don't know about you, but I'm tired of seeing pieces that only look good on mannequins and frail thin models. Seriously, what's the point? But that's why I'm super hyped for this year's new fashion trends because most of them ACTUALLY work for most figures. I'm talking pencil skirts, form-fitted dresses, and pants that work for us chicas with curves. It's about time right?

6 Fashion problems only chicas with big butts have & how to solve them

Any chica with a booty knows that sometimes carrying some junk in the trunk can get in the way of an easy shopping experience.

So for women with fuller Jennifer Lopez or Kim Kardashian-like behinds, the shopping experience can't be easy!

5 Stylish ways to hide a muffin top

I love the holidays, but I hate the dreaded muffin top that many times comes with it. You know what I'm talking about chicas, those chichos also known as "love handles" that bulge out of pants, jeans, and even skirts. There's absolutely nothing to love about this excess skin that would make even the most confident woman feel self-conscious. It's especially annoying during the holidays when you want to look extra cute. Don't want to curb your diet this season? Don't stress! Use your wardrobe to banish it instead!

Dress your booty better with these 7 celebrity-inspired outfits

There's nothing wrong with having a little extra junk in the trunk. In fact, it's figure-flattering. A bubble butt makes your waist look smaller and looks amazing under the right clothes, like form-fitted dresses, pencils skirts, denims, and skinny pants. But be careful--certain pieces can make you wind up looking more slutty than sexy. Not sure what works? Don't stress chica! I got your back!
