It's difficult to go wrong if you're shaped like an hourglass – bust and hip measurements that are fairly equal, and a waist that is 10 inches smaller than either – but here are some tips to make you lucky ladies stand out even more.
Step 1: Favor fabrics that cling to your curves, like jersey, cotton lycra, stretch denim, and charmeuse.
Step 2: Flaunt the fact that your waist is the smallest part of your body by wearing belted clothing, tops and dresses with cinched middles, and mid-waist jeans.
Step 3: Pick body-hugging styles like wraps, halters, and bias-cuts.
TIP: Be sure to pick a wrap that ties around the smallest part of your waist, which will further accent your shape.
Step 4: Complete your curves with pants that are flared at the bottom.
Step 5: Emphasize your shapely bottom half with pencil and A-line skirts.
Step 6: Avoid baggy clothing, which can make you look heavy. Besides, why would you want to hide your fabulous figure?
FACT: A study found that only 8 percent of American women have an hourglass figure.
