- Beware of trends. Not all trends work for every body shape. Choose clothes that complement your curves and accentuate the positive.
- New hair do! Take care of your hair. A woman’s hair is her golden (or brunette) ticket. Find a great stylist and choose a look that complements your bone structure anda colour that suits your complexion.
- Accessories make an outfit so there no reason why you shouldn’t splurge on them. Scarves, jewellery, handbags and shoes! Accessories give you an easy way to change up an outfit you’ve worn a hundred times.
- Find lingerie that fits. You deserve something sexy and beautiful. Just because you are a curve girl, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t wear satin and lace. You can feel sexy in all sizes.
- Choose the right makeup. Your face is the 1st thing that any person notices, so wearing the right makeup is very important.

A full face isn’t necessary but even a little bit goes a long way.
