The volume in the hips is not a problem at all, however, when composing images, the owners of magnificent forms often face difficulties. Together with an expert, we figure out how to properly emphasize the advantages and balance the figure.
Bodypositive is perhaps the best trend that has only been in fashion lately. Although we still see women with model parameters on the catwalks more often, many brands are now trying to produce lines and capsules that take into account different features of the female body. However, despite the fact that many designers advocate modern trends, in the collections of the vast majority of brands, the size grid still remains standardized and does not take into account all the possible variety of figures.
How to correctly place accents in the image and emphasize beautiful, wide hips? Together with stylist Anna Moskovtseva, we have compiled a simple instruction on the selection of a basic wardrobe for girls with this type of figure.
Choosing the right underwear
Let’s start with the base – underwear. His choice will depend on how the whole image will look as a whole. Don’t be shy about the size on the label, buy underwear that suits you exactly. So, incorrectly selected smaller size, shape, material of panties violate the proportions of the buttocks and thighs, can visually make the breeches area larger, creating so-called “ears”.
Therefore, if you want to visually correct the figure, wear seamless or corrective slips and shorts under jeans and trousers. So the hips will seem less voluminous, and the silhouette will become softer and more harmonious. Under dresses and skirts of a loose fit, you can wear any underwear, as long as it is the right size and does not violate the proportions.
Dresses and skirts are indispensable in the wardrobe
The simplest and most convenient clothing option for a figure with wide hips is dresses and skirts.
Curvy hips look beautiful in A-line dresses (take an example from the Twiggy style icon), on the smell and models with an overstated waist. Also take a closer look at dresses with an emphasis on the chest: it can be a beautiful neckline, collar and other details.
Choose straight-cut and trapezoid-shaped models from skirts. At the same time, do not be afraid of light flowing fabrics, but choose models with a cover or a petticoat. Clothes should keep their shape, such a trick will help to lengthen the silhouette, the figure will seem slimmer.

Competently choose the model of trousers
Do not be afraid of the wide trousers models that are relevant this season, for example, palazzo. They visually “lengthen” the silhouette, adjust the figure and, with the right top, emphasize all the advantages. Take an example from the top plus-size model Ashley Graham and choose models made of dense material so that they keep their shape and do not create unnecessary folds.
When choosing jeans, buy black or dark blue models with a classic waistline, made of dense fabric, straight or flared. Without unnecessary decor and pockets, which will only add unnecessary volume. Skinny is acceptable, but in this case, do not forget to emphasize the waist and choose an elongated top – a jacket, jacket or jeans.
We place accents in the image
The right emphasis on the chest, open back or neat shoulders will help to divert attention from the lower part of the figure. For example, shirts with voluminous sleeves, turtlenecks with open shoulders in combination with straight-cut trousers will add romance to the everyday look.
One of the advantages of the “pear” type of figure is a beautiful waist, it can be emphasized with the help of belts. And the accessories that are relevant this season-scarves will attract attention to beautiful shoulders.
Asymmetry is another tricky way to attract interest to the image as a whole, without focusing on the hips. When the weather permits, feel free to wear skirts and blouses of an asymmetrical cut.
When choosing the shade of trousers, avoid horizontal, geometric, floral, animal prints, give preference to plain or laconic fabrics.
You can also visually reduce the volume by playing with shades — choose any color for trousers or skirts, but it should be darker than its upper part.
Classics and nothing but classics
The ideal option for girls with beautiful hips is a coat or trench coat of classic three-quarter length, extended downwards. The so-called A-silhouette. Another option for spring and autumn is elongated coat models that will fit perfectly on full hips. But it is better to abandon direct models — they will violate the proportions of the figure.
And a few more tips to properly emphasize the figure:
Avoid elongated cardigans of large knitting, if you do not want to add volume in the hip area.
Exclude clothing that ends at the widest part of the hips. In this area there should be no sequins, feathers, pockets, zippers, buttons, large details, overhead elements, bright prints.
Choose shoes with a small platform or heel: a flat sole “weights” the legs, while a few extra centimeters visually stretch the figure.
Remember that cropped jeans and trousers with a low fit visually make the hips wider.
