Lipsy gets Curvy

Wed 20 Apr 2011

Embrace your curves and flaunt your figure in our hottest Lipsy partywear pieces now available up to a size 18. No excuses not to get out there and shine - stick to what suits your body shape and you can't go wrong!

Here's a few helpful hints to point you in the right direction on dressing for your body shape.
Which bodyshape are you?

Pear shaped girls (wider bottom half, narrower shoulders and smaller bust) Best to go for dresses that follow your body but flare out at the lower half, good shapes are tulip and belted shift dresses, try our Cross Weave Halterneck or gorgeous Wrapover Frill Front Dress , hitched styles and bubble hem dresses make your lower half appear smaller too. For trousers stick to dark colours or wider legged trousers.
Pear shaped celebs include Jlo, Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, Shakira and Eva Longoria.

Hourglass shaped girls (almost equally proportioned bust and hips size, well defined waist and shapely legs) Embrace those curves and choose dresses with well defined waists and with either a v-neck or scoop neckline. Get glammed up in our Pleated Fan Bust Dress or Chiffon draped panel dress, these stunning dresses will ensure you stand out on any occasion. Best trousers are boot cut, flared or flat front.
Hourglass shaped celebs include Salma Hayek, Scarlett Johansson, Kelly Brook and Mariah Carey.

Apple shaped girls (larger bust, broader shoulders, narrower hips and less well defined waist) Avoid deep plunging necklines, choose wrap dresses and skirts, tops with wider straps to give support, empire dresses and A-lines, stay away from tight trousers, printed and embellished tops. Go for our One Shoulder Side Embellished Dress if romance is the look you're after, this gorgeous one shoulder dress is the ideal party piece or try our Asymetric Hem Dress, a beautiful bandeau dress perfect for Summer evenings out.
Apple shaped celebs include Jennifer Hudson, America Ferrera, Drew Barrymore and Jessica Simpson.
