For far too long, curvy girls have been advised – mostly in good spirit or sometimes otherwise – to steer clear of certain kind of clothing and stick to what their curves know better. But really, who’s to say what works and what doesn’t? Rules are made for breaking, no? So, we thought, we’ll round up our favourite full-size stars wearing the very things that the fashion police told you not to – you know to prove a point so that the next time you’re about to give your favourite trend a miss because of your body type, you’ll think twice! Scroll ahead to find evidence!
Myth: Dark side is the right side
Buster: Mindy Kaling
Wear colour generously, in copious amounts even and if that’s not enough throw in a fistful of kaleidoscopic prints too – states Kaling’s mood-boosting style, both on and off the red carpet.
Myth: Chuck the snug
Buster: Rebel Wilson
Break up with body cons and build your wardrobe on baggy basics? Not quite! Wilson, with her love for second-skin dresses, proves that curves are meant for flaunting and that’s just what you should do!
Myth: Bid adieu to bold prints
Lizzo is a force to reckon with – not only does she wear prints that are the biggest and the baddest but she does it with unapologetic abandon by wearing them in striking silhouettes that will give even the most seasoned fashion insider a sartorial complex.
Myth: Crop tops are cancelled
Buster: Paloma Elsesser
You know those times when someone tells you that you can’t do something and you go ahead, do it and hit it out of the park, just to prove them wrong? Elsesser does just that by wearing an all baring fishnet crop top with a matching bralette and high-waist bottoms – we love!
Myth: Showing skin is only for the skinnies
Buster: Ashley Graham
Graham who is one of the first lingerie super models drives the point home that when worn with unwavering confidence, itsy-bitsy pieces look just as good on fuller sizes as they do on sample ones.
Myth: Sleeping stripes are a no-go
Buster: Queen Latifah
They say that horizontal stripes make you look wider, but Queen Latifah proves that that isn’t necessarily a bad thing – if you’re comfortable and happy in your own skin, none of it matters!
