Marilyn Monroe in the 1955 movie "The Seven Year Itch" is one of the most iconic images for woman with the hour glass figures. This body type is one of the most interesting. Its popularity has waxed and waned. Remember Scarlett OHara being pulled into her corset? Or Rita Hayworth and Sophia Loren? Today we have Beyonce and Kate Winslet.

Folklore suggests that this body type had an evolutionary advantage. Women with 36-24-36 measurements supposedly have greater fertility and their wider hips suggest a body built for child birth.

If you’ve got it, you might as well flaunt it. My fashion tips for dressing your classic, sexy body type are:

WEAR FITTED CLOTHES:  Fitted clothes that define your curves are most desirable. Bias cuts are made for your figure. Suits with short shaped jackets and narrow pencil skirts are also good choices. Dresses in solid colors, or tops and bottoms in the same color, look best on your body type. Try to find tailored shirts with V necks and use chunky jewelry. Look for high waisted trousers and jeans with flared legs.

WEAR BELTS:  Highlight your small waist with narrow belts, just don’t use the tightest notch.

REMEMBER PROPORTION:  The single problem the curvy woman has is possibly looking “too curvy” for today’s idealized type which is more athletic. That is for every woman to decide for herself. A few optical illusion tricks applied to dressing will make your figure appear more elongated and balanced:

*Try to use monochromatic looks.

*If you are busty, balance your chest with flared or boot cut slacks and biased cut skirts.

*Move the eye away from your waist with V neck tops and jewelry at the neck.  

*Do not use wide belts.

*Wear clothes that fit and stay away from adornments that add volume like ruffles, bows, large sleeves, etc.
