Being blessed with wide hips is something to celebrate. Just look at stars like J-Lo and Shakira who are both bottom heavy and boast wonderfully feminine silhouettes.
That’s not to say it can be a challenge knowing what to wear to showcase your assets. Here’s our guide to getting the most out of your fabulous hips and narrowing your waist at the same time – bonus.
Halterneck or strapless styles are the most flattering options for complementing wide hips. Likewise, shoulder pads, ruffled, cowl or off the shoulder necklines are a great choice because they draw attention to your upper body and balance out your proportions.
Don’t forget what goes underneath either, a perfectly fitting balconette or push-up bra which forms and elevates the bust is essential.
A-line dresses and tops flatter pear shapes and move the focus to the upper body, away from the hips and thighs.
High waisted pencil skirts or slim fit dresses with peplums are also a great choice. They cleverly fake the perfect hourglass figure. If you’re not keen on an accentuated look, go for a close fitting top half with a flared skirt instead.
