Wearing perfectly fitted and fitted tops is clearly the best way to show off and flatter your perfect curves. You can opt for soft and feminine materials such as fine knit sweaters , silk fabrics or stretch-based tops to hug your curves and accentuate the harmonious lines of your body. Do not hesitate to reveal the birth of your neck by wearing open collars such as boat necks, draped collars, V-necks… By wearing this type of collar, subtly open on your neckline, you will give a little less importance to your bust while elongating your neck. This will have the effect of reinforcing the vertical line of your outfit and therefore of your silhouette.

Blouses with a few buttons left open, fitted tops, structured cardigans, empire waist blouses, high neck tops… will work great with your figure if they are fitted correctly and if their fabrics have a bit of stretch ( elastane, stretch, etc.). Sometimes slightly baggy cuts can give the illusion of a slim and slender silhouette, but you don’t have to float in your clothes. The best way to look absolutely remarkable is to wear only clothes that are right for your size, snug and fitted. Fluid materials are ideal for blouses and tops in general. Indeed, tops made in soft and light materials will hug your silhouette more easily and thus reveal your graceful curves.

As with tops, your figure allows you to wear almost any shape and style of skirt . Prefer structured skirts whose length stops at the knee and wear them with a fitted top, close to the body. Pencil skirts, flared skirts, hobble skirts work very well on hourglass body types. A-line or trumpet skirts are also very flattering, especially when they feature vertical stripes that highlight your figure and compliment your curves. Stay clear of skirts with horizontal panels. These will have the effect of unbalancing your silhouette.

Pants adapted to the hourglass morphology

When choosing pants or shorts, be sure to favor cuts that will tend to slender your silhouette in order to flatter your proportions. Prefer “boot-cut” jeans with a flared cut starting at half of the leg or wear slim cuts (very close to the body) which will compliment your morphology and highlight it correctly. If you have a few small bulges at the waistband, opt for high sizes, not too tight. Straight cut pants, like skinny pants, are also suitable for hourglass-type silhouettes because the extra width on the calf correctly balances the proportions of these morphologies. Wear these cuts at the right length or a little longer than your legs in order to visually lengthen these.
