Looking effortless and fabulous actually takes work – especially for curvy girls like us.  I know I have long struggled with these 5 “curvy girl fashion woes” below – check out my solutions on how to tackle them!

Woe # 1: Rising Dress Syndrome

Don’t you hate it when you’re feeling like a million bucks in that cute dress just to have it start sticking to you on a hot day and end up exposing your behind without you noticing?  It’s never a fun thing to have a complete stranger walk up to you to gently let you know that your polka-dot panties are showing.

Solution: Wear small shorts, tights, and leggings under a dress.  This will work to keep that dress down and the mystery alive!  Bonus: tights will also help with chaffing and are great for body shaping.

These three give you the full range of protection against this woe all for under $35!

Woe # 2 – Bikini Shy

Some of us might be a little gun shy when it comes to showing some skin on the beach, but that’s ok!  There’s no mandatory bikini requirement for the beach or pool.

Solution: Coverups…coverups…coverups! Whether it is a Kimono, Tunic, Knit Pants, or a Summer Dress – you can be creative with this one!  Here are my top 3, all for under $60!

Woe # 3  – “I don’t like my arms”

I used to get self-conscious about wearing tops that showed off my arms, but have since grown to embrace them.  While I always urge everyone to embrace every inch of themselves, I personally know that it doesn’t just happen over night and will take baby steps.

Solution: For those of us who wish to expose less arm but still look fashionable, my favorites are Maxi Tops, Off the Shoulder Tops, and  Creative Blouses.  I love these three tops for the job – all for under $30!

Woe # 4 – “Wrong” Attention

For those of us in the D or DD range, clothing your top without making them the focus of the show takes a little work.

Solution: Colors, prints, and creativity will make sure you get appreciated for your total package!  These 3 dresses will ensure that you get the right attention you deserve.

Woe # 5 – Curvy Tights Please?

Finally, some tights for us curvy girls!  All under $20!  I personally love these three.
