Love the quality and how it fits a woman’s head. Missing the reflectors on the version I bought several years ago! It runs on the side. Put the reflecting design back on this hat! Lost my reflecting hat, and had to buy another, and Lucy is the only go to for running hats for women. Perfect brim size and lightweight and stylish.
The Hourglass – the Ideal Shape or not? I recently sent a dress to a colleague and friend for an upcoming speaking engagement! She loved it, but had to have it taken in just a bit around the waist. It was at that moment she said to me, “Why isn’t there dress companies that cater to the hourglass figure? Hourglass is considered the ideal shape with the same measurements on the bust and hips and a waistline measurement of 10-12 inches less. In real life, it is much harder to dress this shape. I put together styling strategies and recommended dresses for the beloved hourglass!
How to Dress: Many women with hourglass shapes try to hide their curves and by doing so, wear clothes that do not fit them properly. Instead of choosing big, baggy clothes to hide your shape, choose clothes to enhance what you have. Wearing loose and straight clothing that hides your waistline will make you look heavier than you are. Women with an hourglass shape gain weight evenly around their body, and even though she might carry on extra weight, it usually does not accumulate on the waistline.
Tops: Wear a well fitting bra. Foundation for the hourglass is very important. Keep tops very simple, or with small adornments or prints. Wear a top with either a v-neck or scoop neckline. Both styles slim the neck and chest and will make you appear smaller and slimmer. Wearing a boatneck or a turtleneck style can cause the area around the bust to appear larger, creating a more top-heavy look than a balanced one. Any sleeve length is fine, but if you tend to carry extra weight in your upper arms, steer clear of cap sleeves that could call attention to the area and make you appear larger on top than bottom.
Bottom: Pants and skirts can be of any style hem. Either skinny or flaring out as log as long as the waist sit on the natural waistline is a go. If extra weight is not an issue, then low waistline clothing is a ok. Heavy fabrics and excess prints can be unbalancing the the hourglass shape. light fabrics, color blocks and monochromatic outfits are a better choice.
Dresses: Dresses should also follow the same guidelines and shoes can be of any style. Attention when choosing necklaces, because they can cut the long slimming figure of any outfit. Hourglass figures can show off their curves and camouflage their imperfections by choosing the right styles for their particular body type. By wearing clothes that fit properly any woman can look stunning and feel confident. Embrace your best assets and don’t hide behind improperly fitting clothes.
