Petite or Tall, The Hourglass has it all...
The hourglass shape is curvy and voluptuous. These figures have:
Here are some tips on how to do it:
Start at the top and open the neckline - doing so minimizes a full bustline.
When choosing tops or dresses, seek out cuts that softly hug your curve line and flow away from the tummy area. We always love a cap sleeve over a t-shirt sleeve, as its diagonal cut upwards on the arm gently brings the eye up and away from the bustline.
Vertical details - like buttons, striking zippers or any dominant lines - bring the eye up and down, helping to shape or enhance the shape of the hourglass. Find tops and dresses that incorporate these in the design.
To elongate the torso, slant your belt from the waist downwards. This helps stretch out your mid section while still hugging the body at its smallest point.
Find pants that has little to no bulk around the tummy area to keep . Collections from Up! And Lisette L. do the trick, as they fall flat on the tummy.
At the end of the day, we hope you like to celebrate your curves! That means dressing them just the way you like them.

The Sweet Spot
From early clay sacred feminine figurines to Old Hollywood, the hourglass shape has been held up as the ideal female figure. To make the most of this, choose wraparound tops or those with peplums, even a tailored shirt with a nipped in waist. The same goes for dresses: wrap or cross over dresses with a deep V-neck and swingy skirt is both sexy and feminine. A fitted bodice and flared or A-line skirt also defines the waist.
A well-chosen jacket adds immeasurably to the hourglass figure’s wardrobe, especially a cropped piece that lands just at the waist. Soft, belted jackets are another good option, together with a moto jacket, in fabric or leather.
Stepping into pants means accentuating the hourglass’ natural assets High-waisted jeans or trousers define the waist while flared or wide-legged options create proportion top to bottom. If sex appeal is on the table, choose a fitted jean with a bit of give.
The hourglass’ choice of accessories should start from the ground up! Pointed shoes in neutral tones length the leg, whether they’re flats or heels. Belts are another must that hugs the waist and creates proportions. And jewelry? Choose pieces that create a vertical line without adding bulk.
