Dangerous Curves: The Curvy Woman’s Summer Style

Whoever said “Real women have curves” knows what he/she is talking about.

Back in the old days, women were revered for their luscious curves as a sign of fertility and wealth. In fact, they weren’t shy about their bodacious bodies — some wealthy women even posed with nothing more than a cloth (and a whole lot of self-confidence) for paintings. And while posing nude might not be your cup of tea, we do encourage you to love your body as it is — just remember to keep it as healthy as you can.

We love how brands like BB Dakota and Stop Staring appreciate the need to dress the curvy woman. Celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and Scarlett Johansson have spoken up about not giving in to the pressure to be thin, and we love them for it!
