Fashion Talk:" Curves Are Back." Were They Ever Gone?



When I read that "Curves Are Back!", in the Bazaar's May 2010 magazine I was super delighted! The magazine brought out that the fashion designers have left the "boyish" look and have embraced the ladylike styles. When I first read that I said to myself, "finally, it was about time!"

Designers everywhere are being inspired with the old fashion trends of the past. Especially the styles of the 40's, 50's and 60's. In the article it brought out how many designers are looking to Jackie O's, Audrey Hepburn, Marylin Monroe, and Grace Kelly for their new inspirations. Each and every one of these ladies had their own signature look that identify them as their own.

I am very thrilled by the great retro styles that have come back! For one thing most women like myself were endowed with soft lines and curves. We can't hide the fact that we are women. And aren't these styles to die for? I absolutely love putting on a dress that makes me feel pretty and ladylike. 

Now my second reaction to the "Curves Are Back", had me also wondering if curves were really gone. As far as I remembered I always had curves and loved looking for clothes that would accentuate my hourglass figure.

You see I came from the Spanish culture were it was alright for women to have curves. The women were proud and happy of having curves, and so were their men. In South America we never heard of women starving on purpose so that they could be thin. Being thin was a sign that you were extremely poor or that you were sick.

Women in these Spanish countries have always embraced their femininity. They love wearing clothes that accentuates their waist, hips, and other parts of their womanly body. Although they looked at the American fashion for style inspiration, at the end they still wanted to look as womanly as possible.

Although I wasn't influenced by the thin and boyish trend that the fashion world was sporting in their run ways. There were times that these skinny trends shown in the fashion magazines was alluring to me. I have to say that these people have a knack in making these thin girls look glamorous and perfect. I could sympathize with young girls and adult women that could easily be influenced by wanting to become thin.

Thin has influenced designers for many years. Around 20's the thin boyish look of the flapper girls were in. Thin again showed up in the late 60' and part of the seventies with the Twiggy influence. Then again in the 90's and up to our time thin was in again. This time the fashion looked more grunge and depressing. One article I read called it the " Heroin Chic" style.

I sincerely hope that the new curvy trend could stay. But as we all know fashion comes and goes. But no matter what the fashion industry dictates what women should wear, women of all ages, shapes, and sizes should always stay true to themselves. For one thing being a woman is great, but being a happy woman is even better!
