"I always get my jeans tailored to hit above the ankle (or cut them myself if I want a frayed hem) so that there's no extra fabric bunching around my shoes. It makes my legs look much longer than they are and overall makes me look taller than my actual height of 5'2!" - Nicole Akhtarzad
"I love high-waisted pencil skirts because they suck in my stomach and cinch my waist, and they have a slim but not overly snug silhouette that hugs my curves and creates a long, lean shape." - Tiffany Tse
"The proportions of a boxy top really work for me. I usually pair them with something slimmer on the lower half to balance it out. The wide, slightly cropped shape of a boxy shirt style makes my arms, legs, and hip area look thinner in comparison." - Allyson Payer
"These skirts are great nipping in at the smallest part of my waist, and then flaring out over my stomach and thighs." - Kat Collings
"As a girl on the curvier end of the spectrum, I'm a huge fan of the high-waisted pants trend that's going on right now. Any kind of trouser that comes all the way up to my waist is super flattering; it makes my waist look smaller, flatters the shape of my hips and bum, and helps me feel super comfortable in my own skin." - Meghan Blalock
"I tend to opt for an off-the-shoulder dress. Not only does it elongate my neckline and slim my upper arms, it also strikes the perfect balance between sexy and classic." - Nicole Kliest
"There's nothing like a pointed-toe pump to elongate my legs. They're a lot more flattering than heels that cover the top of the foot or strappy heels." - Michelle Scanga
