Got a curvy figure like Kim Kardashian’s? Here are a few style titbits we’ve picked up from the seriously sexy socialite over the years.
Get snug shapewear
According to Kim, every woman from a size 0 to 14 should invest in shapewear. Anyone who has worn Spanx, for example, knows of its belly-flattening, thigh-slimming powers! Kim Kardashian is a big believer in Body Wrap Shapewear. “They have a firm control long leg panty that makes my body look smoother and slimmer under fitted dresses without leaving any lines,” she says.
Choose ladylike silhouettes
Avoid anything too avant-garde and instead opt for the traditional. Kim often favours sexy bodycon dresses and flattering peplum waists to accentuate her womanly figure.
A good tailor is worth the investment
Everything Kim wears fits her like a glove. Make sure your outfit is proportioned to your body by finding a quality tailor to fit everything perfectly. A chain-store purchase, when adjusted for your shape and height, can look a million bucks.
Accentuate your waist
Want to draw attention to your slim waist? A belt can do just that and adds instant polish to an ensemble. But when shopping the high street, built-in belts can look cheap, so we recommend removing and replacing it with your own luxe or vintage pick.
Avoid oversized anything
Oversized tops, sweaters and cardigans are not flattering on curvy women. They are comfortable, yes, but can easily look sloppy and frumpy. When choosing loose-fitting garments, make like Kim and opt for a flowing, floor-grazing maxi dress instead.
Confidence is sexy
Kim’s body confidence is evident in her body language. She always poses for the camera front on, hand on hip, in a hip-hugging outfit, with an unbeatable smile that’d give Tyra Banks a run for her money. Confidence is undeniably sexy.
