Flattering Dresses for the Curvy Girl.

If you're curvy like myself you're constantly looking for trends to flatter without being covered or draped. While I embrace my curves I do have problem areas that I make it appoint to hide, yes I'm talking about the midsection! Luckily fashion is being kind & delivering us with more than one dress trend that'll help boost our fashion confidence!

Side Panel Dress- They cleverly follow your curves vertically & play with the color giving you an awesome hourglass shape & creating a smaller waist. 

Printed/Patterned Dress- Intelligently prints will boost your silhouette, they create an optical effect that will automatically shrink the midsection. 

Peplum Dress- This look has made its comeback a few seasons ago but now we're given so many options in this silhouette. Besides the ruffle draping over your midsection, this style masters framing your curvy body. 

Vertical Striped Dress- This trend elongates the body & flatters nearly every shape but for curvy girls these stripes will draw the eye up rather than sideways & down towards the problem area.

Below our a sample of each look, you can find on www.oohlalaboutiques.com
