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
