Michele from Chicago, Illnois Asks:

How can a curvy girl look/feel sexy in her clothes when she isn’t top heavy or have a lot of boobs? Most curvy women I see have breast that are prominent or proportionate to there hips.

  1. LoL … That sounds like me. I am all hips and thighs. Not much in the bust area. I found a great solution though. For a few years now I’ve been wearing the Cacique Intimates line from Lane Bryant. Love their bras. The Lace Balconette is my favorite for everyday wear. They have a new Push Up Plunge Bra that makes you look fabulous too. Believe me your clothes will fit and look much better with the right undergarments on.

    You can’t build a brick house without a great foundation first. LoL

  2. I’m not surprised there’s been so little response to your question. It seems no fashion designer has yet been brave enough to take on the challenge of the big-belly, big-butt, but average-bust combination. It’s not that our busts are small, they’d look great on a size two, but next to our bellies they just don’t protrude as far. I know there must be ways to make us look good, but it’s a more difficult build with fewer past successful designs to crib from and copy. Someday, a truly gifted designer will figure it out!

  3. First of all my “Regular” chested sister feel Sexy, because you are! We have one thing most of our big boobied plush sisters don’t, and that’s junk in the trunk! Instead of focusing on what you don’t have… focus on what you do. For me it’s a pretty face and a large bump ( I almost hit the trifecta but my mom won on the boob gene). I, too love wearing Caciques plunge line bras, they give you an extra oompf. On days where I want to look extra sexy ( and I do this with caution… I consider myself to have curves that kill, and I take pity on the curveless) I pair a deep V-Neck top ( because we can pull those off) and skinny jeans or tights. I will also many times wear Ruffle detailed tops. They add the extra bulk we need to look porportionate, are stylish, and can make you feel sexy in a romatic kind of way. ( I usually layer my Ruffled tops with camis underneath). Dresses paired with cardigans are chic, and always even us out. They’re are a lot of designs out there already that we can rock, it’s all about your comfort level and finding your inner Sexy Diva!. Plus I noticed you’re from the Chi…if you haven’t gone there yet, try out Vive La Femme. It was my favorite and only plus size boutique while I was living in Chicago. The girls there will be able to give you some awesome advice ( they’re like free personal shoppers).
    Last tip always play up your pluses. If your face is the main attraction always do up your hair, and play up your eyes… that should surely take away from the lackluster of the itty bitties, and larger tummy.
    Luck on finding the Sexy you,
    C

  4. I’m in the minority, I think. While I love the look of the Cacique bras, for me they’re extremely painful to wear. The heavy underwire boning has left bruises on me. Another thing I’ve noticed that seems to be the current trend with even small plus size bras is some light boning on the sides of the bra. I HATE this! The boning pokes into my armpits and I feel like a scarecrow being held up under the arms. That’s not limited to the Cacique bras…a lot of them have it and it annoys me to the point I’m contemplating making my own bras.
    The v-neck shirt and tops with something that adds interest is really a useful tip and it’s something I try to do…. so glad that ruffles around the neckline are coming back in style!
