The Petite Hour Glass Figure

If you’ve been blessed with an hour glass shape … girlfriend you are one of the lucky ones!  Why do designers consider your body type that of a goddess?  Well, the answer is simply you are as well proportioned on the bottom as on the top and you’ve been graced with a well defined waistline. 

However, being petite does not make this a glorious stance to be in.  It takes a little more know how to create a longer and leaner illusion that will truly flatter your body.

Actress Salma Hayek is a perfect example of a petite with an hour glass figure.  Most of the styles she wears are solid in color, v-necklines to create height, material that flows gracefully over her figure and a style that flatters her waistline.  It’s all about creating the illusions of more and less – more height and less bulk. Next time you’re dressing for your job or to go out on the town, work some magic and create your own illusions.

Dress all in one color from your top to your shoes.  Don’t forget to match your tights or stockings to your outfit too. In the winter, dark colors slim, so try black, navy, charcoal, burgundy, deep green, or purple.

Hourglass-shaped women are so sexy! I don't have one, but women who do... ouch!
