Girls On Film, Part 3: A Spring Style Guide for All Sizes

Here it is.  The Grand Finale à la wearing Springtones for your body type.

Now, it's taken me a while to come up with this simply due to the fact that -- and please don't be too upset -- hourglass girls can wear ANYTHING!  You're curvy up top and down below with just the right amount of cinch in the middle.  There's no need to fret over Spring brights or bold patterns because your figure accommodates it all.

Now, I hear you saying "Yes, but I'm a little larger or smaller than I'd like to be."  Well, phooey!  You still have the figure for anything.  It's just a matter of buying the right size.  Seriously.  The biggest mistake I've seen any girl of any figure type make is buying too big to cover up unwanted weight or too small to accentuate your curves.  You don't want to look like a you're wearing a circus tent or create bulges in places you didn't have them before.  Both are unflattering.  Girl, you can wear hipsters or high-waists, crop-tops and tunics, tea-length, maxi & mini.  When you're genetically blessed with a Monroe-esque  physique, you owe it to yourself above all to do right by your curves.

If I can leave you with one solid piece of advice around your figure, it's that if/when you run into the conundrum of a pair of pants that SHOULD cinch as a high-waist but your hips get in the way... suck it up and buy the next size up -- or TWO.  Then head to the tailor & have the waist taken in.  Rip out the size tag if it does a number on your ego, but remember that a good fit means a good look and that trumps a printed band-size any day!

Totally agree, fit is the most important thing. Nothing is going to look really good on someone if it's too big or too small.

Yep! I've totally been in the dressing room & thought "There's no way I've gained weight" or "There's got to be something wrong with their sizing". Either way, if you love it and want it, get a size that's flattering & makes it worth the purchase.
Thanks for stopping by!
