3 Tips This Stylist Learned From 20 Years of Dressing Curves ✨
... and how Embodycon™ ticks all the boxes!
Susan Moses is a celebrity stylist, designer and fierce advocate for style beyond size. She has styled everyone from Britney Spears to Queen Latifah over her two-decade-plus career and she's learned a few things in the process! She launched her debut book in 2016, The Art of Dressing Curves. Check out 3 of her top tips for dressing, plus size or not, and how our Embodycon™ Dresses and Skirts tick all the boxes!
1. Strike the right balance between fitted and too tight.
Moses says: “There’s a difference between being squeezed in a dress and a dress fitting your body nicely. You shouldn’t see lines of any undergarments through the dress—that’s when you know it’s too tight!"
Our Embodycon™ dresses have reinforced ruching to camouflage cellulite, enhance your shape, and disguise that VPL. The buttery soft bamboo ruches flatter your body.
2. Everybody should have a shape-wear arsenal.
"This is universal!" says Moses. "Every woman needs a little bit of cinching, smoothing, and support sometimes. Generally, smoothing in the tummy and hips can make us look more refined and polished in our clothes. The number one piece that women should have is a body briefer."
With built in power mesh lining from the under-bust to below the bum, the Embodycon™ dress does all the work for you! Smoothing your shape, camouflaging bumps and enhancing what you have. Plus the power mesh will keep you cooler than traditional shape wear.
3. When in doubt, reach for a pencil skirt.
"To-the-knee is the most flattering hemline on everyone," she says. "It elongates your curves and gives your body good balance."
All our Embodycon™ dresses and skirts are to the knee, giving you that elongated silhouette!

We have one more Bonus tip from Moses to finish off that look!
No outfit is complete without the right shoes. She says “Pay attention to the line of your shoes.Avoid straps around the ankles—they can make legs look shorter. A classic pump in a neutral will give you the cleanest line and make your legs look longest."
