This is embarrassing. Bigger ladies, I need your help.
I am embarrassed to ask this, so please be kind in your responses. I am a curvy woman. Many of my friends and co-workers are stick skinny. I am not embarrassed at all about my body, I like my curves - I like showing them off - but at the same time I don't want to be giving off the wrong impressions. I want to be viewed as a professional, but with...bigger features...guys seem to lose focus and not take me seriously. I don't want to have to wear uuber conservative clothing just to be acknowledged for my brain. Disclaimer: I do NOT wear overly suggestive clothing. Its just my body type.

I have a coworker that does this particularly well. She is not large by any means, but she is extremely curvy - in all the right places! Girl has got a bootie on her. Anyway, she keeps it professional by pairing great suits with fun tops, or conservative tops with fun skirts. I did ask her once on how her clothes fit SO WELL, and she told me she gets everything tailored. It's hugging, but never clingy. Be proud of what you have - just don't show all the goods off, either!

If you have it, flaunt it! I think it is great when a woman is confident in her skin. Don't ever think otherwise.
