4- Top-Heavy : avoid skinny jeans and other cuts that make the lower half appear disproportionately lean. Match a darker color on top with a light-colored A-line skirt that falls just below the knee for a more balanced overall look. Look for cinched shirts below the bust line – often the smallest part of the torso – to achieve an hourglass shape.

7- Larger middle: Skinny jeans and low-waist jeans are not friends of a larger middle. They can distort your body by pushing your skin into unflattering configurations, such as the dreaded muffin top.

 

The trick is to fit your largest part first and work from there. You should pay a special attention to where the crotch seam begins, making sure if fits well. Typically, higher rise jeans with a flare tend to balance out a larger middle. Try also to stay away from form-fitting shirts.

8- Curvy All Over: Curvy women benefit from more structured clothing, for instance, a leather jacket that sits just above the hip, or a skirt that flatters your curves. Avoid frills and frippery; lacy, ruffled tops will add too much volume. Instead, mix different fabrics or colors on the top and bottom to create a defined waistline.
