I'm beginning to think the fashion gods that be have it out for curvy girls. Seriously! Every time I look at a fashion mag, it seems like they're telling me, an admittedly short and curvy chica, patterns, skinny jeans, crop tops, loose blouses, tight shirts, long skirts, short skirts, skirts in general, and everything in between are totally off limits for my voluptuous body. Um, correct me if I'm wrong, but that pretty much leaves us shapely women with nothing but A-line skirts and bell bottoms to wear. Um, that's pretty limiting if you ask me.Continue Reading >
Fall has always been my favorite season of the year. Not only do I love the cooler weather but I get excited at the thought of buying new clothes. Best part is, this season's fashion trends don't just work for the runway, they actually look good on all body types--especially those of us with curves! It's all about classic dresses (with cleverly placed panels and seams), dark florals, bold colors and figure-flattering pencil skirts that look amazing on a big booty!
We've been talking about big butts a lot lately. Just this week we mentioned Jennifer Lopez's sexy new single cover with Iggy Azalea for her new "Booty" remix. There's nothing wrong with having a little extra junk in the trunk. It's actually super sexy underneath the right clothes. But I'll admit, it's not always easy finding outfits that flatter your booty and your small waist. Luckily for you, I got some tips!
It's a shame Eva Mendes isn't coming out and letting us see her pregnancy bump. If there's one celebrity who would make maternity wear look chic it's her. I've always really loved Eva's style. Not only is it sexy and sophisticated but the girl knows how to dress those amazing hips of hers. It's not always easy dressing a pear shaped body--trust me, I know! But Eva nails it every single time!
There's only two more weeks left of August and before you know it, September will be here. So it's time to start switching those short shorts for a perfect pair of denims. I know, I know, shopping for jeans could be a nightmare in and of itself, forget finding one that works on a curvier figure. But just because you were blessed with a big booty or "hips that don't lie," doesn't mean there isn't a great pair of denim pants out there for you!Continue Reading >
Burlesque queen Dita Von Teese is the latest designer to jump aboard the maternity lingerie bandwagon. Yes, maternity lingerie.
Maternity brands are finally getting hip to the idea that new moms and expectant mamis like lingerie just as much as the next gal, only they often struggle find undies and bras tailor-made to suit their specific needs. But no more! These days, hot mamas can choose from a wide array of mom-friendly thongs, camisoles, sexy nursing bras, and other lingerie staples in sizes and styles that'll hug and caress their lovely lady bumps and humps.Continue Reading >
I'm all for fashion trends, but what a lot of women don't realize is that certain pieces can actually make you look fatter than you really are. I can't tell you how many times I've seen a curvy chica rock a sheath dress that hides her tiny waist and only makes her appear wider. Or what about those low-rise jeans? Some make even a skinny girl look like she has chichos. Believe me, these style mistakes can make a BIG difference!
So you didn't get to lose those extra 10 pounds you wanted gone by June. Now you're walking around with unpleasant and pesky belly fat, but that doesn't mean you have to starve your way to skinny. In fact, I have a cousin who just had a baby and literally lives in maxi dresses. She claims that they cover everything she wants to hide like her tummy, but accentuate all the parts of her body she wants to show off, like her boobs. Maxi dresses are probably one the best fashion pieces ever invented since fajas and wrap-around numbers. They help disguise that middle like nothing else!Continue Reading >
Girl, you might want to sit down for this one. I know how much you love your fajas, so I wanted to be the first one to share the big news with you. Now you can wear jeans that don't show off those pesky chichos and that won't make you feel self-conscious about your full thighs because Spanx is coming out with their own denim jeans--set for release this coming July. Isn't that AWESOME! Okay, I'm going to give you a few seconds to process all this. Take a deep breath!Continue Reading >
So you weren't able to drop those 10 extra pounds you wanted off by June, don't stress. You can always just fake the weight-loss. No, I'm not kidding! You can totally make yourself look thinner, all with a little help from your wardrobe. All you need are a few stylish (but slimming summer staples) to make you look like you went a dress size smaller. Shh ... no one needs to know!Continue Reading >
