How to create visual balance between your bust and calf size

There's no such thing as a plain woman. Everyone has attractive points, so my advice is to accentuate your best assets

Dita von Teese

A visually balanced body, regardless of weight or height, always looks most flattering.

Calves come in different sizes and shapes and each variation requires a different styling and dressing guide.

Dressing your calves requires a strategy, because you need to have an understanding of your build, you need to put the size of your calves in context with your bust, body shape, height and proportion (ie do you have a balanced body? A longer body with shorter legs? A short body with longer legs?). By modifying the lines of your clothing you can create visual balance whether you have small or large calves.

    Aim: You need to add roundness to your calves by adding visually volume to it- clutter here is essential.

  • Medium Calves

    Aim: You need to underline the shape of your calves without going over the top- don’t clutter - less is more.

  • Big Calves

    Aim: You need to minimise and lengthen your calves visually. So, never ever highlight your calves or ever think of cluttering them.
