*****Dress For Your Shape – Cinched In Waists*****


If there’s one way to define your shape and accentuate your curves it is, strange as it may seem, by drawing attention to the one bit of your body you think you ought to hide – your waist. Yes ladies, it’s time to cinch them in – good and proper! The 1950s was not only the year of the housewife, it was the year of the housewife’s belted waist. If you look back at images of women in the 50s you’re bound to find them in a pretty tea or sun dress…with an actual waist. And thanks to the fabulous, sexy burlesque stars of today (Dita in particular) along with the fashion A-Listers, the waist is officially back. Not only is a cinched in waist reminiscent of yesteryear, the trend (so to speak) was all over the spring summer catwalks. Jil Sander basically belted everything from trouser suits to dresses to coats. Lagerfeld used big statement silver belts on dresses and shorts/blouse combos and Lanvin sculpted the body with tailored dresses that skimmed the waist. If, however, your credit card simply won’t stretch to the super high end designer threads, then check out the items we found above. You only have to browse through the first few ‘New In’ products on a lot of the sites to see that the designers and buyers are taking care of your curves… So what you waiting for girls, let’s get cinching!!
