Women come in different shapes and sizes, and it’s important to celebrate the diversity of healthy shapes!
What is most refreshing about today’s modern society is the rise of bold and confident women who are changing the narrative of ‘beauty’.
Today we see more bloggers and models who represent different sizes – and we’re loving it!
So, what exactly is curvy? The term ‘curvy’ is quite subjective, and can physically range from any woman size UK 8 and above. Curvy refers to the proportionality of a female’s hips and thighs – both of which are wider than her waist.
A curvy woman is considered a “shapely” woman: also known as “full-figured”, “thick”… But in particular, she is healthy and fabulously working with all her extras. Most times it seems full-figured women don’t appeal the way they ought to because they either don’t know what styles work with their figure, or they just don’t look healthy. Curves lose some of its attraction when the woman seems lost underneath her masses.
Curve Control! Are you a healthy curvy or just a lazy one? Eating healthy and understanding the right types of exercises will not affect your curves but accentuate them. Some women don’t exercise (thin or curvy), and still look healthy, but only you know if you’re cheating yourself and not reaching your potential.
Curve Control! Are you dressing for your shape or your imagination? Knowing what works with your body shape is crucial when you have a lot of ‘body’ to work with. Not everything you see someone wear will look good on you, especially if that person does not have a similar body type! When you go shopping, experiment in the mirror and take some honest friends with you – you’ll be better off!
Curve Control! It starts off with being comfortable with yourself!
