For Petite and Curvy Body Types: Play Up a Shapely Figure and Elongate the SilhouetteFrustrated by not finding her size in many stores, Cecily is stuck in a shopping rut: "I always shop at the same stores, regardless of styles." The problem? "What I wind up with doesn't always look good on me," she says.
The fix: Find a straight-leg style that's fuller through the hips and thighs. And embrace stretch denim, which hugs curves and holds everything in place.
