Dress Your Curves: A Guide To Figure-Flattering Athleisure
Posted on September 28 2019
In the age of body positivity, it’s essential that each and every one of us works toward being happy with our appearance. According to Glamour magazine, 97% of women have negative thoughts about their bodies. While some have issues with certain parts of their appearance, a large number of women hate what they see in the mirror every day, according to Psychology Today.
Traditional media and social media are known to be the biggest culprits since they’ve been propagating an unreachable beauty standard for decades. It takes time and conscious effort to undo such damage, but it’s not impossible.
Fall in love with yourself one step at a time. Dress your body with pieces that suit you, instead of trying to fit into a certain style.
Here are some athletic wear tips that cater to all body types:
Athleisure for an apple shape
An apple-shaped body carries more weight in the midsection. The best athletic wear for such a body type is full-length leggings and long-sleeved shirts. Our Jordan Legging in North Sea will elongate your legs and the detailing down the side with help even your body out. Don’t shy away from color since you’re an apple-shaped. As for the top, long-sleeved t-shirts can be worn if you’re feeling a bit uncomfortable showing skin.
Athleisure for an hourglass shape
The hourglass shape is considered the “ideal” shape for a woman. An hourglass figure can carry off many different kinds of athletic wear; it all depends on your preference. We recommend a Formation Legging in an ombre effect and a top to match.
Athleisure for a rectangular body type
A rectangular body shape refers to one that doesn’t have much difference in the measurements of the bust, waist, and hips. Women with such bodies tend to look taller than usual and to even out their proportions, we recommend our Momentum Short in Deep Lichen. They show off your legs and have an added mesh detailing to the side, accentuating your legs.
As for the top, a dip-dye Serenity Bra may be ideal. The dip-dye look will shorten the torso and the shorts will elongate your legs.
Athleisure for a pear-shaped body
Most women today are now looking to have a pear-shaped body, instead of the traditional hourglass. A pear-shaped body is where the shoulders are narrow and the hips are wider.
We recommend a subtle print on the legs to show off your curves like the Cadence Legging in Medieval Blue and Amparo Blue. Pair it with a subtle tank top like the Perf Perfection Singlet in Eclipse. The deep shoulders on this tank top will give the illusion of broader shoulders, evening your body out.
