Top curvy shapes have to be sure to maintain balance in their outfits. The key is to create the illusion of proportionate bust-to-hips ratio. This can be done with waist cinching, and clever pattern clashing. The mixing prints look is not for the faint of heart but can totally work in your favor. A top curvy shape has to be sure to minimize the upper body, and the lower body has to appear more shapely.
Striped patterns can be flattering for your top curvy figure. Go for vertical stripes on your upper body. Keep the stripes wide and large to minimize your bust, and wear your top baggy to avoid a clingy, unflattering fit.
Florals are a lovely pattern to wear in summer. Florals are super feminine and can create a pretty summertime look. Keep your floral patterns large and on your upper body. The larger print will shrink your bust and stomach. If you plan to wear florals on your lower half, go for a fine print to keep your hips looking curvy and proportionate.
A fierce geometric pattern will help you to shape your silhouette and create the illusion of a more balanced body shape. Wear heavy geometric patterns on your lower half and team them with a patterned cardigan. Wearing the cardigan and pants in a geometric pattern with a plain top will give you the look without the unflattering enlarging that geometric patterns often do.
A graphic print is exciting and youthful. Wear a graphic printed top. Keep the print large as mentioned in the previous patterns. The larger print will make it difficult to define your curves and so will minimize your curvy upper body. Team it with a smaller patterned skirt or cardigan.
