All designers should know that curves are a blessing, not a curse. Don't they know the mantra about thick thighs? Hint: They save lives.
In the past, curvy women have had limited fashion choices, but plus-size fashion has come a long way from the days when finding a good pair of jeans seemed like a hopeless mission.
And we break all the so-called fashion rules that say curvy girls shouldn't wear crop tops and shorts skirts—and that showing your arms is completely out of the question.
Boy, bye. No more floor-length potato sacks! Today, we rock all kinds of styles.
Peep our top 5 summer trends and where to get them.

The site features cute pieces for various shapes. You are sure to find something to fit your lifestyle, whether you love to cuddle or your couch or hit the bar scene with your bestie.

Why is showing your shoulders be so sexy? We don’t know, but we love it. Get the look at Target. Surprise! Believe it or not, Target has some cool pieces at affordable prices like this bardot body suit.

For an effortless cool-girl look, the T-shirt dress is the way to go. Rock a pair of sneakers with it and you're set. We love this one from Missguided.com because it's all about rock and roll meets girl power. Plus, they keep us looking fab.
