Are you a BODY iCON?

Queen of Diamonds Body-Con Dress

Queen of Diamonds Body-Con Dress

The latest trend this season is the Body-Con Dress!  The Body-Con, short for “body conscience” is a dress for those who are not ashamed of their curves.  These dresses are form fitting; maximizing every curve your body has.  We currently carry an array of body-con dresses.  Here are some good tips to follow.

  1. BE A ICON:  It is important that a woman feels comfortable and confident in whatever she wears; especially the body-con dress!  Because this  dress shows off your curves; it is not suggested that a body-con dress be worn by someone who is bashful or shy about her shape.  Wear your dress like a star!

  1. SHAPER, SHAPER, SHAPER!:    This dress will define your  curves and your imperfections too!  Be sure to wear the right shaper to ensure that your tummy is  smooth.  Underwear lines are a distraction; so go without wearing any underwear or a thong, when wearing your body-con dress with your shaper.  See my previous blog on undergarments if you need help.
  1. JAZZ IT UP:  The fun thing about the rules of fashion is that they are meant to be broken.  Pair your body-con dress with a pair of  stylish leggings; or even pair it up with a blazer for work.  The possibilities are endless.  Find what makes you feel comfortable and rock it.

Be sure to check out our Curvaceous Boutique’s Body-Con Dresses.  We have different cuts and prints to choose from!

Tall Girls ROCK!

Model Chavita Stands 6'2

Curvaceous Model Chavita M. Stands 6’2

Standing at 5’2 myself; I’ve always admired tall people. Thank God for high heel shoes! If I didn’t wear heels I would walk all over my clothes. I have a good relationship with a seamstress because of it.

Ladies like Kimora Lee Simmons( 6’0), Tyra Banks (5’11), Yolanda Adams (6’0) and Gwen DeVoe are all tall beautiful “glasses of water”! I often wondered how my life would be different if I had at least a couple of more inches.   But as a short person, I never seem to realize the issues that some “Talls” have.

Most recently I did a photo shoot with a new beautiful model name Chavita, standing at 6’2. It was a blast working with her. She shared with me some of the issues that she has when buying clothes. I know personally being a “Shorty” that I never have to worry about inseams when picking up a pair of jeans or dresses; however she shared with me that this is a struggle for most Talls. Yeah, some stores cater to the Talls; but of them do not. There are some specialty shops that sell nothing but clothes for Talls; however most of the items are not as trendy.

I took this challenge and shared it with a few of my close friends and customers that are tall. A friend of mine says that she gave up on looking for long stuff; so she now buys 2 of the same pair of jeans to make them one. I can see that as being an easy fix; but who has time to go the the seamstress or let alone the money to buy double of everything? That is why Curvaceous Boutique created the tall girl section.

Tall Girl Shop

Tall Girl Shop

Curvaceous Boutique’s is proud to announce the “Tall Girl Friendly” Shop; after all Tall girls are curvy too. In this section, I’ve hand selected all clothes with longer inseams. This means no more “high water jeans” or dresses with your ankles showing. Most of the items have inseams of at least 34” and have longer sleeves.  So Tall Girls Rock on! :)

Gone With the Wind Curvy!

CORAL MAXI DRESS

CORAL MAXI DRESS

Ok, the latest craze is the Chiffon Maxi Dress.  Yes, that’s right- I said CHIFFON!  Most of y’all remember chiffon as the typical bridesmaids or prom dress from the 70s- but Chiffon has made a major comeback. When I came across these maxi Dresses I had to grab them.  The flow of this dress is so classy and sassy.  Weddings, graduations, parties; it’s a dress for every occasion.

Chiffon is such a breathable material which is oh so great for these up and coming humid months.  It’s a light-weight fabric; typically made of polyester or nylon so you never have to worry about feeling too hot.  The longer chiffon dresses that my boutique carry have a built-in slip at the lower half of the dress.  So no worries about showing your undergarments.

Peplum Magic!

LEATHER PEPLUM TOP & BLACK TWIST PANEL LEGGINGS SOLD AT WWW.CURVACEOUSBOUTIQUE.COM

LEATHER PEPLUM TOP & BLACK TWIST PANEL LEGGINGS SOLD AT WWW.CURVACEOUSBOUTIQUE.COM

The Dainty Peplum Top is finally making a fashion rerun.  Many people remember this style from back the 80s and 90s- you either  hate or love it.  I love the look of Peplum because of the magic it does to someone’s figure.  The bottom dress like flow covers any tummy imperfections.  It will totally make your stomach issues disappear.   Peplum Tops also cinches your waist while smoothing you out.  This makes your waist line look super tiny so this is perfect for those with no true curves or lower waistlines.

It’s a great cover up too!  You can feel confident when wearing your leggings or high waisted jeans because the lower portion of the top covers your bottom.

Kim K. is notorious Peplum fanatic! She looks great in all of her clothes; but the Peplum Top is her signature!

When I first think of Camouflage, I instantly get warped into the whole military motif.  Army, Boot Camp ….  I love it!   And I am so glad that the Camo Trend is back for this season. I’ve seen beautiful dresses, girly tops and bottoms, and even accessories with the Camo Print.

A lot of women don’t see Camouflage as being feminine  however designer today have embraced the trend and have made it completely versatile.  Its almost like Camouflage could be a neutral print.  Kinda like how animal prints can be paired with solid colors or a denim.

I’ve seen Camo in different colors too like blue, pink, or multi-colored, just to name a few.  The standard green camo looks great with pinks and reds.  My girl Rocky, “rocked it out” on the BGC Reunion show, by pairing her green camo trousers with a girlie pink tank and gold chunky jewelry.  She looks super Trendy!

I personally like pairing my Camoflauge with a neautral color and going all out with my accessories. Camoflauge is surely taking me over.

101 on Undergarments

The key to fashion is the fit.  Not having a good fit; which includes proper undergarments can make any awesome outfit a disaster.  Some ladies cringe when I ask about undergarments and tend to stay away from “clingy” clothes.  I know when I use to hear the word “body garment”- I tend to think of that old beige girdle that my grandmother struggled to put on that made her feel more and more uncomfortable as the time grew.  But just like grandma, and my mom, and I too want to be smooth!  Now that time has changed, I know what products to use to give me that classic, seaming less look, all while feeling comfortable.

I have been a die hard Ardyss customer for years.   The hold that I get from my Body Magic is undeniable.  It use to be my best friend, but since I’ve lost a few inches, I’ve been satisfied with the look my Spanx give me.  I love Spanx because they give my curves a cinch!  They smooth all of my imperfections on my legs and mid-section, and I never feel uncomfortable.

Spanx makes a lot of different under garments to achieve particular looks for all sorts of body shapes.  But I live and breathe by the Tight-End Tights® High-Waisted Convertible Leggings and In-Power Line, Super Higher Power® Shaper.

Tight-End Tights® High-Waisted Convertible Leggings

Tight-End Tights® High-Waisted Convertible Leggings

The Tight-End Tights® High-Waisted Convertible Leggings and In-Power Line, doesn’t leave a dent or line a across my upper thigh area. This makes this garment my fav when I’m rocking my leggings, bodysuits, cat suits, jumpsuit or any light or white colors.  This garment goes down to ankle which is perfect, giving u a seamless contoured structure.  The hold is firm and smooths my legs and tummy.  What makes it convertible is the fact that I can pull them down past my feet, to give me a opaque stocking effect which is like a 2 for one!

In-Power Line, Super Higher Power® Shaper

In-Power Line, Super Higher Power® Shaper

The In-Power Line, Super Higher Power® Shaper is also my fav.  Its perfect for my maxi dresses, short dresses, or any garment that doesn’t cling to the body.  This shaper will give u more of a slimming look and doesn’t show any lines or bulging under my clothes.  You can adjust the leggings so that they don’t show under you short dresses; or even pull them down for my long dresses.

To avoid the quick mirror checks or those bathroom stall showdowns; here are a few tips I suggest.  Always tuck your garment under your bra!  By doing so, u are eliminating the garment from shifting or rolling down.  Another tip is- do not wear any panties under your Spanx.  The materials used in Spanx are just as comfortable as any pair of panties plus you do not want to show any pantie lines.  If you being without underwear bothers you wear a thong.   Also, buy the correct size.  The height portion really doesn’t matter, but make sure you choose the right size according to your weight.

We sell both of these products at Curvaceous Boutique; however Spanx’s prohibit retailers from selling their products online.  For all of my local customers whom would like to purchase the product please stop by our store (Curvaceous Boutique:  549 Newtown Road STE 107; Virginia Beach, VA 23462).  Spanx does have a website- you can order online www.spanx.com  if you are not in the Virginia Hampton-Roads Area.
