Use This Guide to Get the Best-Fitting Halloween Costume for Your Curves
“Apple Shape” ladies carry most of their weight through their midsections.
Tops or dresses that have a seam just under the bust will detail the smallest part of your torso and flow smoothly over any trouble areas.
Layer structured pieces, such as jackets and corsets, to help shape your waist. Use heavy fabrics that will hold their shape and provide additional support.
Use loose and easily-draped fabrics at the neckline to add a feminine touch to structured pieces.
Show off your shapely legs with asymmetrical skirts, pencil skirts, or straight-leg pants.
Avoid: Waist-cinching tops that will add volume to your tummy and draw attention away from your great legs.
“Column Shape” gals carry their weight evenly throughout their torso.
Create dimensions and added curves with lightweight fabrics which drape softly over trouble areas.
Boat neck or off-the-shoulder necklines will attract the eye upward to your face and balance the fullness of your torso.
Tops that nip in at the waist or are belted help to accentuate your bust and create more curves. Ensure that you are defining the smallest part of your torso, which is usually under the bust at the rib cage.
Use skirts and pants that flow gently from the widest part of your waist. This will elongate your legs and flow over your tummy. Also, patterns and dark colors will help lengthen your lower half.
Avoid: Clingy or tight styles. Also, garments with harsh lines will make you look overly structured.
“Hourglass” figures are evenly proportioned on the top and bottom with a defined waist.
Wrap tops and dresses flatter your defined waist and glide over hips and bottom for graceful movement.
Use the structure of jackets and button-down tops to accentuate your waist. Corsets and belts also help to draw attention to your natural curves.
Pick skirts and dresses that hit at the thinnest part of your leg for a long lean look. This is generally just below the knee or right at the ankle. This trick creates the illusion of thinner legs.
Avoid: Bulky and shapeless garments. They will hide your natural curves and make you look boxy.
“Pear Shape” women carry more weight on their lower body.
Wide Neck Tops
Use off-the-shoulder, boat, scoop, and V-neck tops to help create the appearance of broader shoulders and a balanced lower half. This will help achieve that hourglass shape.
Show off the trimmest part of your body with tops that have bright colors and feature fitted waists.
Structured jackets and lightweight cardigans will add definition to your shoulders and nip in your waist.
Choose skirts that flare out from the widest part of your body. This will highlight your trim waist and flow over your curves for a feminine look.
Avoid: Oversized tops that have no shape or structure. Clingy fabrics on the bottom will over-emphasize your lower half.
“Inverted Triangle” gals carry most of their weight on their upper body.
Break up wide shoulders with deep V-neck tops and dresses. Use dark colors and clean lines on your top half to avoid adding volume to your look.
Seamed and Drop Waists
Create the illusion of feminine hips with the flowing fabrics and gathered seams worn just below the natural waist. Peplums are a great way to get a nipped-in look for your waist.
Full or Flared Skirts
Balance your body with ruffled seams and mermaid silhouettes. Skirts that gently flare out at the waist and flow softly over the hips will create a movement for feminine curves.
Avoid: High necklines, such as crew or turtlenecks, which create visual bulk on your upper body. Also, high-waisted bottoms will cut your torso awkwardly, creating an out-of-proportion look. Take the Quiz to Find Your Fit
