Patterns

Curvy Girlz  want to wear larger patterns to achieve the look of  balance and proportion Patterns that are too small will make you appear larger, while patterns that are too big will make you look as if you are trying too hard to appear smaller.  Whew !! A lot of work goes into achieving the perfect look. It’s work just thinking about it !!

Remember #1 rule: SKIM NOT SQUEEZE !!

Look for strategic seaming, pleating, draping, and flirty details to personalize your look, and work your assets to your best advantage.

The drapey design of the dress immediately draws the eye upward and outward to balance hips, while at the same time accentuating bitty to busty in the best way 🙂

A look this sleek  requires spanx ladies !!
