Kim Kardashian and her cohorts have succeeded in making curvy the new thing.
Every girl wants to achieve the 36" - 24" - 45" (outrageous btw) body ratio, but most of us aren't born to be curvy. But there are a few hacks that can help achieve the curvy look (not the exaggerated kind).

Here are some tips to that can help create a curvy look.

1. Good Bra - You're going to need to wear a bra that enhances and shapes your chest as well as supporting it. That means underwire, a good lining, and even some padding.

2. Tiny Belt - This is perfect for cinching in the waist. It creates the appearance of a smaller waist line.

3. High-waisted pieces - including jeans, leggings and skirts, are all the rage among the stars and with good reason. These pieces tend to sit at the best spot on your waist and cinch in your waist, causing it to look smaller.

4. Stripes - Wearing vertical lines over your midsection can actually reduce the appearance of your waistline. Stay away from horizontal lines, especially on tops and sweaters, which are notorious for making any figure appear wider.

5. Cinched in Clothes - Look for snug, tailored pieces. Everything from your casual t-shirts to your button-down blouses should be fitted, nipping in slightly at the waist. Stretchy materials hug your curves and work especially well if you have a flat stomach.
I always take in my clothes at least 2 inches extra around the waist. When making custom pieces, I give my waist measurement as 24" instead of 26" as this makes the waist area really snug and gives the illusion of a smaller waistline. 

6. Illusion Dresses - The most fashionable way to create a smaller waist is to wear clothing that has black or navy panel sides,It will create a beautiful illusion for your waist.

7. Wrap Dresses - There’s a reason why designer Diane Von Furstenberg’s classic wrap dress never goes out of style. Any woman can wear the easy wrap dress — and dresses that accent the middle are a good way to make the waist look smaller

8. The classic fit and flare gown - These are dresses with a slim top that slopes into a gently flared skirt. It’s often seamed at the waist to achieve its signature shape.

9. Nude Heels - A neutral heel is your best friend when creating the illusion of a smaller waist. The closer the shoe's color is to your natural leg or hosiery tone, the longer and leaner your body will look. And the leaner you look, the smaller your waist will appear.

10. Flared Skirts - Wear an A-line skirt when you want to tuck in your top.
Look for skirts that fit at or around your natural waist in fabrics that are stiff enough that they don't just hang limply over your hips and instead flare out away from your body instead. Bodysuits are also great if you want to achieve the look of tucking in your shirt without the potential bunching and ride-ups of normal tops.

11. Try wearing a body-shaping undergarments. Picking the right foundation garments can greatly reduce your waistline.
-Shapewear - Most quality lingerie stores carry lines of undergarments that are designed to smooth and support your figure.
-Corsets - Worn under gowns as a figure enhancing item of lingerie in centuries gone by, the corset has gained renewed popularity recently for providing an effortlessly sexy silhouette, whether under other clothes or on its own. Steel-boned corsets (not as painful as they sound - promise!) do the best job of cinching in your waist, can actually permanently reduce the size of your waist with prolonged wear!
12. Try a peplum top or dress - This style of dress can help emphasize a curvy silhouette despite your body type. Peplums give body around the waist, flare at the hips, and narrow at the waist.

13. Adjust your posture - Stand with your back straight, shoulders dropped and back and your weight on one leg, hips thrust out. This creates an S-shaped curve in the body as seen in majority of my recent pictures.
To create this S-curve when you're sitting, simply cross your legs or put your weight onto one hip

Hope you find these tips helpful.
