Our vuluptuous vixens may shy away from waist belts believing they accentuate the bad rather than the good. That’s a fashion myth! If used in the right ways, waist belts are perfect for showing off the curvaceous hips and thighs. Show them off!

So many curvy women cleave to looks that drape over the body, but the best way to make passersby yield to a dangerous set of curves is to highlight them!
