How do you dress a CURVY and PETITE body?
Here are a few things to remember...
Accentuate the smallest part of your waist.
This means that you look best
in clothes with an empire or high waist.
Floor length pants and dresses give the illusion of longer legs.
Wear wide leg pants where the seam falls
straight from the hip making your legs look longer,
but avoid cropped or overly detailed jeans and pants.
V-neck shirts and scoop necks give a "Curvy Petite" body the
flattering hourglass effect, but avoid a crew necks
or turtle necks that may make you seem top heavy.
Know your body!!!
People with "Curvy Petite" bodies need to deal with the fact that MOST of their clothes WILL NEED to be tailored.
Pants brought up at the hem. Skirts and dresses shortened.
The only way to avoid this is by shopping
in the Petite section or at stores that have a
"short, regular, long" option in their pants.
Here are some examples:
Meredith and I had to laugh at this picture.
My waist comes to her bust line.
Yes! Meredith is PETITE, just look at her next to me :)
