Summer is in full swing, so there’s no time like the present to get started on the body you’ve been dreaming of. Our top tip for this season is to try out the revolutionary Venus Legacy treatment – and you’re in lucky, because Balance is now one of only two locations in Ireland that can perform this procedure! It’s non-invasive, there’s no downtime, and each session is quick, easy, and pain-free. This body-shaping solution helps to tighten sagging skin on the face or body; reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; smooth cellulite; contour your curves; and improve circulation.
Of course, once you’ve got your body looking gorgeous, you’ll need some ideas on how to dress to impress, right? Fashion Boss Lorna Duffy shared some clever tips with us at our brilliant Balance Motivates event last week. Women come in all shapes and sizes, and they key is to use fashion to accentuate your best features.
You’re curvy with a tiny waist, so embrace those curves! Play up your petite waist with a belted jumper, or go bold and try Kim Kardashian’s crop top and pencil skirt uniform. V-neck wrap dresses are ultra-flattering, while wide-leg trousers will make you appear taller.
You have a slim lower body with some weight around the middle, so highlight your shoulders and legs. Swing coats are incredibly flattering for your body shape, and the high-waisted circle skirt accentuates your waist. A shift dress that shows off your legs is a great choice, and low-waist, straight-leg pants avoid a stomach bulge.
Your hips and waist are the same size, so your goal is to highlight the thinnest part of your waist, in order to make your hips and bust appear larger. A slightly cropped jacket that cinches at the waist, or a ruffled shirt are flattering, and make your top half look larger. A side-cut out dress can make your appear curvier, while tapered trousers create the illusion of larger hips.
Your hips are your widest part, meaning you want to balance your figure by accentuating your top half. A structured jacket with detailing or prints can direct attention to your top half, and an off-the-shoulder dress takes the attention away from your lower body. A-line skirts also draws the eye towards to the smallest part of your waist, and boot-cut trousers balance with your hips to make them seem perfectly proportioned.
