by Cliche Wynter Published on 29 July 2014

You women with an hourglass figure are usually the envy of all the land. You serve up an enviable dose of va-va-voom without batting an eyelash. While it's undeniable that you have rocking bodies, it doesn't mean you don't struggle with fashion dilemmas like the rest of us. Embracing your curves without appearing trashy can be tricky. Here's what to wear if you have an hourglass figure.

People are often deluded into believing that a perfect hourglass figure means you're somehow immune to the style mishaps the rest us of face. That's simply untrue. Everyone faces a fashion fiasco every now and then.

You see, the difficult part about dressing your curvy body is striking the perfect balance between sexy and sleazy. Although it's very important to highlight your hourglass figure, you generally don't want to skew trashy.

Yeah, it does get a little tricky.

Need a little style advice? Here are a few tips that will help you dress those beautiful curves!

Your Hourglass Figure Shopping List

  • Body-hugging dresses
  • Fitted tops
  • V-necks
  • Wrap Dresses
  • High-rise pants
  • Pencil skirts
  • Tailored coats

Hug It Out

Loading...

When it comes to body-hugging attire, Kim Kardashian certainly reigns supreme. The reality star manages to nail the look in a simple dress that oozes sex appeal, yet maintains a bit of modesty due to its hemline. That's how it's done, girls.

Have A Fit

It's important that you don't overwhelm your frame with oversized tops, especially when paired with baggy pants. The combo can make you appear heavier than you are (not to mention the fact it'll swallow your awesome body whole.)

Instead, opt for fitted tops that will help showcase your bust.

That's A Wrap

Women everywhere have Diane von Furstenberg to thank for the game-changing wrap dress. While it certainly flatters all ladies, it does a curvy girl's body epic justice. The wrap adds extra emphasis to your already itty bitty waist.

Hit The V-Spot

V-neck shirts are perfect for women with an hourglass figure. The cut delicately hints at the bosom without being too revealing. Remember, it's all about balance. You can wear a looser fitted top with a V-neck cut.

Be sure to stay away from turtleneck tops, as they'll make you appear top heavy.

Take It Higher

High-raise jeans, leggings, and pants work wonders on curvaceous bodies. It allows all your best assets to get some shine. Not only will your toned tummy be flaunted, but the higher waist draws equal attention to your bust and hips. Major win!

Always Bring A Pencil

Hello, hips! Pencil skirts are a sure bet when you're looking to flaunt your fuller lower half. You can team the sexy bottom with a fitted top, or play with proportions while opting for something a bit looser.

FYI: We wanna work it the way Scarlett's working it. Hot! Hot! HAWT!

Get Tailored Swiftly

When it comes to coats, tailoring is essential. You really want to aim for pieces that are nipped in at the waist, as it helps to further define your waist. It's all about highlighting the right parts of that gorgeous hourglass figure.

Don't be shy, girl!
