As curvy girls we all have one goal in mind–to be snatched about the waist! If you haven’t heard the term “snatched” allow me to up your knowledge of the gay language. Snatched is when you are pulled together to capacity; your boobs are at attention, your booty is on fleek (ugh, I really hate that phrase!) and your gut is tucked as if you’ve just left the office of a top Hollywood surgeon. Being snatched is all about creating a look that is damn near flawless (Beyoncé reference #1), it’s about looking as if your clothing was tailored to accommodate every nook and cranny of your curves.
While most of us search high and low for the perfect attire the truth is being snatched is all about identifying and wearing the correct undergarments based on your attire. You heard me right, undergarments! The wrong undergarments will immediately turn that freakum dress (Beyonce reference #2) into an unfortunate wardrobe tragedy that people will constantly remind you of via social media. You might even become a meme *gasps*.
I see it all the time; boobies hanging like you just birthed a litter of puppies, tight dresses and granny panties and other ungodly fashion hiccups that could have been avoided with the right undergarments. Because of this, I have decided to throw my cape on in an attempt to save the day. I want to share a few detailed tips and some of my favorite undergarment brands that will have you feelin’ yourself (Yep, Beyonce again).
1. Every girl should own a strapless bra (click to see my favorite)! It creates the look of no bra with the support of a strapped bra.
2. A Plunge Bra (click to see my favorite); creates a fuller looking bust and is great for lower necklines.
3. Shapewear is a life saver, not just for curvy beauties but for any woman who has a problem area. There are many types to assure that you are able to target the appropriate problem area. My favorite high waist brief is made by Spanx and my favorite bodyshaper is by Maidenform.
Now that I have shown you the undergarments, let me show you how they can help you create a look that will turn heads and break necks.
