Women’s curves have been something a contentious issue in the fashion industry. Size 0 models have made many believe that it is best to pursue a shapeless silhouette, and billboard adverts still propagate unhealthy images of skeletal figures. And this is despite publicity to encourage the industry to use more realistically sized models. It’s high time that women’s curves were celebrated again! With a flurry of sexy and curvaceous ‘real’ women in the spotlight, maybe the time is finally here. Cosmo recently published a slideshow of some of the most beautiful and successful celebrity women, many of whom have curvy silhouettes. Stars like Scarlett Johansson, Kim Kardashian and J-Lo are all celebrated for their womanly figures, and their red carpet style encapsulates the glamour and elegance that the right kind of clothing can give to hips, boobs and a waist. Burlesque artist Dita Von Teese is fast setting a trend for bringing back 1950s glamour, complete with cinched-in waists, big hips and proper busts. With the red carpet now welcoming an hour-glass shape, the high street is set to follow. High street fashion is now slowly working towards trends that are more designed for a curvier physique. Pencil skirts, mid-heels and statement jewellery are currently in vogue so you can now dress for your shape while staying on trend!
On top of that, Shapewear, the brilliantly flattering underwear, is taking the fashion world by storm. These attractive undergarments smooth your body-line so that everything sits where you want it to! And there is no need to worry about having a Bridget Jones moment with your scary big knickers – Shapewear is stylish, elegant and on trend. Isme’s range of Shapewear currently features a great selection of chic pieces, in black, beige and white, with appliquéd lace and decorative edging for every problem area that you might want to tackle.
A fashion-forward and affordable way to enhance your womanly curves in the way you want to. Now I've never had to use Shapewear but recently some areas have started to....lose their elasticity so to speak, so its looking like that day is coming sooner rather than later. Thing is I've always been worried about how ugly most of the ones I've seen are, absolutely far from flattering. The Isme range eliminates all those fears though, smoothing away all your disagreeable bits while still looking sexy. Love! So yeah, when that dreaded day comes, I know I'm covered.....literally. Lol, sorry, bad pun. Love and light xx
