7 Styling Tips for Curve Models

With the modelling industry adapting and changing every day, the demand for curve models is increasing. The “body positivity” movement has prompted agencies and industry to start to embrace bodies of all shapes and sizes. Therefore, everyone has a chance to celebrate their bodies, both in and out of the industry!

With the curve modelling sector growing and changing, so is the clothing industry and people are becoming a lot more aware of what clothing suits their body type.

Let’s go through a list of 10 simple styling tips for curve models, which might help to amplify your photo shoot or daily life!

1. Ensure you get your sizing right

It is important to wear the “right size” clothing. Try avoiding wearing sizes that are too small for the body, as it accentuates the wrong areas. On the other hand, wearing loose clothes can make you give a wrong impression of your overall body structure and sizing. The better the sizing, the more flattering it looks. That being said, when shopping feel free to try out different sizes of clothes, as a lot of brands are known to have different clothing sizes under the universal size numbers.


2. Define your waist

Cinching waists helps to project a slimmer waistline and provides an hourglass figure. It is recommended to wear high waist belts for shorter people, as it will elongate their overall appearances and make their legs look longer. Tuck the belts with loose fitted fabric to avoid the “bulging effect”. Avoid wearing thick belts as it can bring attention to the width of a person, which completely defeats the purpose of the cinched effect.


3. Avoid rounded toe shoes

Often rounded shoes can have the impact of making anyone look shorter. A look overall can be elongated by wearing pointed or open toe shoes. This will make the legs look longer and well-balanced.


4. Utilise strategic Patterns

Patterns can be a tricky matter when it comes to balancing an overall look. Bold coloured, thick patterns can give the impression of a different body size and can bring attention to the wrong body parts. Whereas, smaller and darker coloured patterns can complement the style and the form. For example, smaller polka dots can make the figure look a lot more flattering than bigger ones.


5. Bold Colours for the win!

Bold colors are a great way to bring out the feisty personality! They can be a great way of complimenting skin tones and funky hair colors. It is suggested to avoid wearing clashing bold colors or patterns as it might go against the principles of the clean, sculpted bold looks.

6. V Necks are the Best

V neck tops can elongate the appearance of the waist. V neck tops can help direct focus from any problematic area to the bust area. This can also make the look more feminine and playful. 


7. High Waist Bottoms compliment anyone’s figure!

High waisted pants or skirts with pointed or open-toe shoes are often great pairs that elongate the look, beautifully. To complete the look, wear a semi-fitted top which ends on the waistline if not slightly under.
