How Curvy Dress Shapes Have Improved Over Time

Over the last two decades, the fashion industry has placed more emphasis on inclusivity and body positivity, leading to a wider range of sizes and styles available for curvy women. With new materials and technologies, curvy dresses are now more comfortable, flattering, and gorgeous than ever before! Indeed, they’re a total game changer that elevate your look and emphasise your killer curves. 

But of course, not all curvy dresses are made the same. There are shapes and cuts that look better with different body types. The first step to finding the most flattering fit is being able to identify what your body shape is. This will help us highlight the best features on your body, elevating any look. Being curvy could mean you are a plus size girl, or you are a regular size, but have a full bust and full hips. Typically, women with hourglass body shape or apple shape tend to have a curvier figure. 

Here’s a quick look at the predominantly curvy body types:

Hourglass: These bodies are voluptuous with proportional hips and chest. Women with this body type have an upper body that is "balanced" in relation to their leg length. Hourglass shapes have well-defined waists, which should be emphasised!

Pear (or, Triangle): Typically, women with this body type have broader hips and thighs and a slimmer upper body.  The style secret to appear more balanced and proportionate is to choose clothes that add more volume to your upper half.

Apple (or, Round): Women with apple body types usually have a shorter, less defined waist, slim legs, and carry their weight in their middle. Moreover, Apple body shapes typically have flatter bottoms.

Now that we have your shape down, it’s time to transform your look. We’ve got you covered with a list to help guide you make the most of this season’s fashion trends and look great while doing it!

Transform Your Look With Curvy Dresses

Let's explore three popular fits for curvy women: apron dresses, shift dresses, and A-line dresses. Each dress style has distinct characteristics that flatter various body types and create a beautiful silhouette that emphasises your curves in all the right places.

  • Apron Dresses. Their design accentuates the waistline while providing a loose fit around the hips and thighs, creating a flattering silhouette for women with curves. The loose fit of the apron dress also makes it an excellent option for women who may be a tad self-conscious about their midsection.

  • Shift Dresses. The shift dress is popular among curvy dresses, thanks to its straight, boxy shape that hangs straight from the shoulders without any waist definition. This style is ideal for women with broad shoulders and apple body shapes to create a sleek, streamlined silhouette.

  • A-line Dresses. One of the most popular dresses for curvy women, A-line dresses are known for their fitted waist and flared hem that adds volume to the hips and thighs. The silhouette helps balance the body's proportions while the fitted waist accentuates the curves.

Trending Styles For This Season

Improving your wardrobe with the latest trends can be expensive, so be sure to focus on quality basic pieces that can transcend any season and occasion. If you like to add coverage during the colder months, search for styles that are just as flattering as the rest of your outfit.

Shrugs are the unsung heroes of curvy dress accessories - not only do they provide a stylish finishing touch to any outfit, but they also offer the perfect balance of coverage and comfort for those who want to show off their curves with confidence, making them a must-have for any fashion-forward wardrobe.

When it comes to styling curvy dresses, the right accessories can take your look to the next level. The technique is to use accessories strategically because these will complete your look and accentuate the best parts of your body. For example, a statement necklace or interesting neckline draws the eye up toward your face.

From statement jewellery to chic handbags, from scarves to waist-cinching belts, the possibilities are endless. Simply remember: when it comes to coordinating accessories for your curvy dress, the goal is to maintain body balance.

Dressing Up Or Down A Curvy Dress For The Right Occasion

Pair your dress with simple and understated jewellery, such as a delicate pendant necklace or stud earrings, for a casual look. Using a belt to accentuate your waistline can help you achieve a more feminine silhouette. Finish it off with a pair of comfortable flats or sandals, and you’re good to go!

Statement jewellery, such as a bold necklace or statement earrings, can add interest and texture to your outfit for a formal occasion. A clutch or an embellished handbag can also be used to complement your dress, and high heels or strappy sandals can complement your outfit
