How To: Dress an hourglass figure

Dress an hourglass figure

It's difficult to go wrong if you're shaped like an hourglass – bust and hip measurements that are fairly equal, and a waist that is 10 inches smaller than either – but here are some tips to make you lucky ladies stand out even more.
You Will Need
* Clingy fabrics
* Belted clothing
* Body-hugging styles
* Flared pants
* Pencil and A-line skirts

Step 1
Favor fabrics that cling to your curves, like jersey, cotton lycra, stretch denim, and charmeuse.

Step 2
Flaunt the fact that your waist is the smallest part of your body by wearing belted clothing, tops and dresses with cinched middles, and mid-waist jeans.

Step 3
Pick body-hugging styles like wraps, halters, and bias-cuts.

Be sure to pick a wrap that ties around the smallest part of your waist, which will further accent your shape.

Step 4
Complete your curves with pants that are flared at the bottom.

Step 5
Emphasize your shapely bottom half with pencil and A-line skirts.

Step 6
Avoid baggy clothing, which can make you look heavy. Besides, why would you want to hide your fabulous figure?

Fact: A study found that only 8 percent of American women have an hourglass figure.
