...Then go for a fit-and-flare dress with a form-fitting bodice that nips in at the tiniest part of your torso ― typically right underneath your ribcage above the belly button.
Christina Andrew, 25, model: "Who says that curvy girls can't wear crop tops, cutouts, or allover prints? I want to break all those rules to remind people your body is cool no matter what. This flirty dress accentuates my hourglass waist and makes me want to go dancing."
...Then show off that clavicle with one of this season's trend-setting shoulder-baring tops. Make the flirty look even more fab by applying a touch of highlighter to the collarbone.
Nia Porter, 22, fashion writer: "I'm usually not a fan of showing a lot of skin, but I love an off-the-shoulder top for summer. There's something so regal and graceful about revealing your shoulders and collarbone. This top is sexy yet subtle, and the ruffles add just the right amount of movement."
...Then master the art of the perfect cat-eye. Graphic, winged liner instantly draws attention to your eyes and bone structure. Pro tip: Practice your technique and steady hand using scotch tape as a stencil.
Georgia Pratt, 26, model/fashion designer: "My confidence has never relied on my appearance. Size aside, the issue is this flawless ideal of beauty that's unattainable. I love how my freckles come out in the summer, for example, but they usually get airbrushed in pictures. So do stretch marks and cellulite — things all girls have that are part of life."
...Then take a calculated dare with a dress boasting an upper thigh-grazing slit — the higher the hemline, the bigger the confidence boost. YOLO!
Jennifer McLawhorn, 28, photo editor: "I was tall and scrawny growing up, and have always worn black. But all black can get boring, so I look for pieces with interesting details — like this anything-but-basic little black dress."
...Then highlight ― don't hide ― your bust. Make a case for cleavage by choosing scoop or deep-V necklines (unlike high necklines that can create a "uniboob" effect). Remember, there's a time and a place for putting the "girls" on show, so invest in the best bra you can afford, avoid any NSFW situations, and display your decolletage proudly.
Cassandra Starr, 28, actress/dancer: "I used to be very self-conscious and kept my boobs covered because I didn't want to just be seen as The Sexy Girl. I've gotten better at dressing my bust over the years, and recently decided to embrace what I have more."
...Then spotlight your bum ― whether it's barely there or bootylicious ― in a bodycon skirt that emphasizes your shape. Note how this loose, silky pajama top balances out a skintight skirt.
Catherine Yan, 28, project manager: "My typical uniform includes pencil skirts and heels that easily take me from meetings to a night out. I'm rather petite so this bandage skirt hugs the curves I do have in just the right places."
