Curve-flat­ter­ing wrap dress

First For Women - - Style -

We love to see the num­bers go down on the scale, but as they do, it can be hard to let go of the clothes that com­fort­ably cam­ou­flage our curves. To flat­ter the fig­ure at any weight, stylist Sa­man­tha Brown points to a wrap dress. “By cinch­ing the waist, a wrap dress de­fines the small­est part of the torso, in­stantly carv­ing out a beau­ti­ful hour­glass,” she says. Her tip: Opt for one with a V-neck (to trim the bust line for a leaner-look­ing torso) and a di­ag­o­nal hem (to di­rect the eye ver­ti­cally to erase inches from the lower half). Plus, the ad­justable de­sign of a faux wrap with an elas­tic waist makes it easy to slip into, whether you lose more weight or hold on to a few pounds post-hol­i­day. For added slim­ming, slip on a fit­ted jean jacket to con­ceal trou­ble spots with­out adding bulk.
