I've just been going through my summer wardrobe and everything I have seems to accentuate the bigger parts of me (breasts and hips) and therefore make me look, and feel, a bit shapeless. My top is a 32e and my hips are a curvy size 12, can any curvy ladies out there help me with my style? What cut suits us best? What should we avoid?
Nothing wrong with accentuating your boobs and shapely hips at all, especially as you're only a size 12 and not a 16/18 heifer like me .
I'd say you need to accentuate your waist more - nothing sexier than a hourglass figure! Bravissimo do lovely clothes to accomodate big norks while fitting everywhere else (a common problem with other brands). I think they're quite pricey, but a few staple items should see you through.
Halter necks are good for big boobs. They had a lovely cotton, halterneck dress in H&M this morning in a bright sunshine yellow, very summery that would have suited me, I have one very similar so didn't buy, and you and I sound like we're the same sort of shape/proportions.
Finding things that will fit your norks is a bit of a problem, I know, because if they fit over them they don't fit you elsewhere.
I find things that have buttons over the bust or in fact all the way up are a good option because they can be left open at the boobs with a vest or cami underneath or maybe just cleavage if you're feeling like it.
You just have try everything on and spend lots of time shopping and seeing what suits you and what you like.
