Properly fitted underwear can be a big help to boost your confidence. Good underwear, especially a good fitted bra, will make you look taller and thinner. Here are some tips to help you find the styles to flatter your shape.

To flatter curves...: Look for a support bra that fully support your breasts. Wide stripes would be a lot more flattering on you. Choose your bra with feminine details such as lace or embrodery such as this ensemble from Marks and Spencer. Your choice of panties should be a short style, high cut, brief, they will cleverly cover and flatter your bottom. Avoid skimpy underwear and extra padded bra.

To hide a belly... A basque style is ideal. A corsage style with extra panel at the front will really flatter your tummy. A frilly bra draws the eye up. Your choice of panties would be a high-cut brief. Avoid low cut panties or strings.

To create cleavage and curves go for frills and other details on the bra and panty, padded bra is a must. String and low cut panties with lots of details will work wonderfully on your shape.
