    If you're anything like me, scoping a new collection or shopping on an e-commerce site takes two sets of eyes: one that's all about the innovation and right-off-the-bat beauty, and another that has a trained sense for knowing what will realistically work for 5'4" gal with a chesty frame. As much as I may love fashion, when proportions come into play, it doesn't always feel like a mutual admiration society. 

    For a woman with curves, knowing what to wear is not about limitation, but rather about really perfecting what works.

    Jessica Paster, whose past celebrity clientele including curvy beauties like Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Simpson, is a wiz when it comes to what to wear to keep it classy without hiding your frame. Pulling out some tried-and-true items from my own closet, I've taken Jessica's tips to heart (and added in a few of my own) to help demonstrate the six ways to show off your personal style without ever making a sacrifice for the sake of anatomy.

Combine that under-the-radar quality with an ethically sustainable business, and you have South Carolina-based Proud Mary — an e-boutique that works exclusively with artisans read
