How to create an hourglass figure | A step-by-step guide with pictures
Posted on 02 August 2018
Hourglass, feminine, sexy, sultry curves. How do you achieve them? Most articles out there will give you a list of exercises and get you to work to create that perfect bombshell body. Whilst we advocate being healthy and active, no number of squats are going to turn a flat booty into one that can compete with the likes of Kim Kardashian.
Exercising is great to tone up your body and keep you feeling strong and confident. However, if you want to create a really dramatic difference to your shape, you aren’t going to get the results you want down that avenue.
Let's use the show Mad Men as an example. This blockbuster show brought curves back into fashion, with Christina Hendricks playing the iconic character Joan Holloway, who wiggled around the office displaying her luscious curves. The lead female characters on the show were actually banned from working out as they didn’t want their bodies to look too muscular. They created their show stopping hourglass silhouettes with period reproduction shapewear and girdles, that did at times cause the cast discomfort and pain.
So the question is - how do we get that curvalicious, eye-popping bombshell Marilyn Monroe-esque look without painful period corsets, invasive surgery or gym exercises that won’t give the results you are after?
The solution is simple - modern, high-tech, seamless shapewear and some innovative accessories.
To create that dreamy hourglass body there are 4 areas to focus on:
- Cleavage and bust size
- Waist definition
- Butt size
- Hip size and curve
Below are the tips and tools of the trade - the insider secrets from lingerie fitting experts and costumiers to create the illusion of dreamy curves. There are 4 steps to the process. You can start at step 1 and stop right there, or keep going for more and more dramatic impact for the ultimate va-va-voom look.

Hip Boosters: Place these where you may notice slight hip indendations and create a beautifully rounded look.
Step 3: Create cleavage and increase your cup size
To match the curves you are creating on the bottom you need to amplify your bust and create cleavage. Even the flattest girls can enjoy an ample bosom with our little secret.
Solution: Stick On Bras
