Enhance your figure with padded underwear to achieve an hour-glass figure. No matter how much exercise you do or how healthy you eat, you may not have an hour-glass figure. Padded bras or padded underwear may be just what you need to pull off the perfect look.
10. Clothes Are Everything
A roll of flab hanging over the top of a pair of low cuts is not flattering to any figure. Cut pounds and inches off of your body by simply wearing the right clothes. Avoid clothes that are too tight as they accent your bulges.
Exercise and diet may or may not give you the hour-glass figure of your dreams. Should you miss your goal, enhance your figure by wearing padded underwear and carefully selecting clothing that looks attractive on your shape. What tricks do you find most effective for altering your body shape?
