What to Wear to Flatter an Hourglass Figure

If you have an hourglass figure, you are one of the lucky ones. With a beautiful bosom and hips that swing with sassy style, we want what you have. But are you dressing to flatter your best features? Below are our top fashion tips for ensuring that your fabulous figure is highlighted in all the right places.

Balance Your Busty Top Half.


  • Drawing in your waistline will prevent your bust looking big and bulky. You have a great cleavage — it needs to look splendid without it falling all over the place. This also means a good bra or bralette is essential. Take your time when shopping for good quality and well-supported underwear as it will help shape your outfit too.
  • Clothes that are tailored to nip in at the waist, are perfect. Look for materials that have a little give in them, they will cling to the curves and fall in a way that shows off that shapely hourglass figure. Soft materials like silk, satin, and super soft knitwear are ideal to hug your curves and prevents you from looking like a box. 
  • When choosing dresses, blouses or playsuits, a wrap around style is your best option. It is extremely flattering for the hourglass figure. They provide a V neckline which allows room for your bust without squashing it and drawn in at the waistline. The naturally narrowing neckline accentuates your neck and gives the impression of a tighter lifted bust which will balance you out. 
  • For outerwear, pick out jackets that are belted or have a waist-defining closure. Try to steer clear of big bulky coats are this will give this figure a big bulky look and we want to celebrate the hourglass shape. 
  • If after all these tips you still want to downplay your fabulous features then stick to dark shades and vertical stripes.   

Streamlined Your Bottom Half


  • You are looking for bottoms that will elongate your legs and accentuate your curvacious hips. We want you to flaunt that gorgeous hourglass figure and being a little selective over what you wear can do just that. 
  • When it comes to skirts, A-Line and Pencil are typical flattering but with the curving hips that this body type posses they are the very best choice. The highlight the hips and draw in towards the hem giving the impression of a long leg. 
  • If you are not so keen on framed skirts and wish to wear loose options, then stick with soft fabrics that will hug your hips and drape. Avoid anything material that is too stiff as you will look a bit boxy down below. 
  • Flared trousers are also a smart choice for this figure. Probably not the first style that comes to mind when you have the hourglass shape but they are great for balancing out big hips and the skinny section really lengthens the legs. Skinny Jeans, however, are not so good unless the wearer has long legs, you make find the shorten your size and you look heavier built then you are. 
  • Stick to mid or high waisted pants. A waistline on low pants will run across your hips and could make them look wider. Although you want to accentuate your curves, you want to do it in the right way. Also, best to avoid embroidery or decoration around the hip area for the same reason.
