Swimsuit Confidence

Hourglass Shape

An hourglass shape means you have a wonderfully defined waist with shoulders and hips of equal width. Relax, you can wear just about anything. The most important thing is not to lose that shape in what you wear with overly full and baggy styles unless that's your love and vibe of course!

Maz, Suzie and Anita from The Cossie Confidence Crew are an Hourglass shape. Look for them and what they wear for your shape clues.

The same for summer kaftans, dresses and tops. Look for styles cut on the bias or that you can belt in to define your waist. A simple shift will do the trick particularly if it has darts in the back to bring you in a little. Wear figure flattering slips under those floaty fine kaftans so that there is a sense of what lies beneath. The trick is to find a slip that will keep you cool, in a 'go with anything' neutral shade. Haven't got one? We do:)

Now all of the above sounds great but at the end of the day, they are suggestions. We want you to feel fabulous in what ever you choose to wear. No rules girls. But if you're confused or overwhelmed or perhaps after a freshen up with what you wear then these 'guidelines' are a place to start. Then as you gain in confidence, create your own.

Such choice. Enjoy!
