IF YOU’RE...Curvy

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - FASHION -

E mbrace your curves and work with your favourite fea­tures to feel your best. There’s no need stick to black or shape­less ac­tivewear, thanks to new fab­ric tech­nol­ogy and the rise of ac­tivewear brands for fuller fig­ures. Fol­low our style tips for guar­an­teed con­fi­dence.

1 Ditch the black

Choose a deep blue in­stead of black – it has all the ben­e­fits of a darker hue but is more dy­namic. Go with vari­a­tions of this colour, then add pops of grey and white to keep your fig­ure even and bal­anced. Be­ware of sport­ing clash­ing colours, which may cut your body in half.

2 Choose flat­ter­ing shapes

High-waisted leg­gings smooth out the stom­ach and nip in the waist. If you like a print but are bot­tom-heavy, go for a small print or one con­cen­trated around the lower leg.

3 Flaunt your curves

An over­sized top will make you ap­pear larger, as it drops from the bust and ig­nores your waist. A form-fit­ting top will look sexy while still pro­vid­ing cov­er­age. Sim­i­larly, shorts with an in­ner bike short al­low you to pa­rade your pins, but with ex­tra sup­port.

For a big­ger bust, choose a crop top with a thicker un­der- bust band for greater sup­port

When wear­ing lay­ers, show off some skin by ex­pos­ing a shoul­der so you don’t look too cov­ered up
