Curvey Women Love These Summer Dresses

By Linda Franklin

This summer is a scorcher so ditch those pants and put on a dress that flatters your figure.

Don’t try to hide your sexy curves, There are lots of cute summer dresses for curvy women out there. Here’s a few that might work for you.I.

Solid Colors are Slimming

Did you know that a solid color head to toe like this is always more slimming than a few colors mixed together? That’s why I love this  Jessica Simpson sleeve belted Blouson dress in this pretty shade of orange.

If you have a warm skin tone, or just a great tan then this nectarine dress will make you glow like the sunset.  Be sure to accent this dress with some big chunky jewelry as shown here because that is what is really going to make this dress pop. This is the kind of dress that could take you from work to evening so you’d really get a lot of wear out of it.

Circle Skirts Hide Hips  

If you have a little extra padding at the hips a great way to balance your figure is with a dress that has fit and flare. This sleeveless ruched dress is perfect for a gal with a pear shaped figure who want to show off her enviable waist but camouflage her hefty hips.

Another really nice thing about this dress is the use of soft, muted colors in the tropical print. This dress gives you that Caribbean vacation feel you having to wear bright parrot colors which can often look and feel too loud.

Empire Waistlines Tame Tummies

If you have low belly fat (usually from having kids) that never seems to go away, a great way to get the attention off that spot is to take a look at summer dresses for women that have empire waists. This Short Sleeve Printed Empire with its flattering wrap style neckline visually raises your waist up, and in doing so moves the attention to your upper half. The skirt part gently flows over a jelly belly. Great trick!

Color Blocking Magically Erases

Dark colors recede and make you look slimmer. That’s the reason so many women love black. But heck, you can’t be wearing black all the time, so here’s another great trick. Choose a dress like this DKNY colorblock dress that strategically uses black to knock off a few inches.

Black panels places here at the sides slims your figure by ” blacking” part of it out. No wonder color blocked dresses are one of the most popular summer dresses for plus size women out there.

Simplicity is Slimming

A solid color + a simple tank top style make this Elemntz ruffle dress a winner. You’ll look long and lean but anything from boring because of the interesting texture that makes this dress feminine and gives it real personality.

Maxi Dresses Make the Difference

Some curvy types prefer more modest summer dresses for women. If you are a gal who feel more comfortable not exposing your legs then a maxi dress is for you.  This is one of many  beautiful summer halter dresses for women that work well. You still get to show a bit of skin up top which is youthful but you don’t have to worry about feeling self-conscious about your legs.

Shirtdresses Balance Your Bottom

When you are heavier on the bottom than up top the way to balance that out is with a top that has a good shoulder and some structure. This Jones NY Shirtdress with its strong collar and short sleeves adds extra width across the shoulders which in turns makes your bottom half look more proportioned. Isn’t this a pretty, fresh look for summer?
