How to Show Off Your Curves Like Iskra Lawrence

SHOW OFF YOUR BODY

She defines herself by her own identity. No one will take away her flaws because she proudly flaunts them on social media and in life. Iskra Lawrence’s attitude towards embracing the body God gave you makes her one of my all time favorite models. Although Iskra is a curvy woman, she celebrates her name as a role model who is a body positive activist working hard to change the perception that beauty comes in one size.

Did you read my recent post about why I don’t use Photoshop? I mainly outlined how I want to avoid using Facetune and other altering image apps are because I want to flaunt the features I was born with. God made us all different for a reason and I don’t want to hide it.

Iskra is the same way and her bold attitude is what attracted me her Instagram profile in 2015. I’ve been a devoted fan ever since I discovered she doesn’t find use in editing her photos. In fact she is known as the woman in the fashion industry who says, “don’t touch my photos”.

The way she works her body eliminated the need to Photoshop her shape and after analyzing her photos, I figured out how she flaunts her curves in flattering ways. Don’t worry my tips are not for only curvy women, advice is for ALL women!

5 Tips to Working Your Curves in Photos

Whether you have an hour glass shape or an athletic build, every woman has curves. You don’t have to be built like Beyonce or LaTecia Thomas to show off your booty. With the best tips and tricks, any woman with any body type can flaunt her curves.

Every woman has curves, you have to know how to work them.

Personally, I didn’t realize I was already doing the exact same thing as her. Not just because I have a similar body type as Iskra but it’s what I do with my body to make posing a bit more fluent and flattering in pictures. I will show you how to amplify your best assets. No editing required.

One foot in of the Other

This may be a popular one among fashion bloggers but in case you didn’t know, this is an easy way to create lines with the body. No matter how baggy your clothes are, placing one foot forward creates an intricate look causing one’s eye to dance along your newly formed curves and honestly it’s flattering in all angles.

Arch that Back Girl!

Posture is everything! Not only does Iskra have one foot in front of the other, she is swaying her back and aligning it straight up. Sitting up straight makes you look naturally proportional. If you want that booty to pop and sit high, arch your back and stick your butt out but so hard it looks unnatural, just enough to curve your backside.

Knee Pop & Sit

Similar to the ‘one hand on the hip’ pose, this knee pop look is sorta the same. Pop the knee out to one side and sit in your hip on the opposite side; example: pop your right knee and sit in your left hip. Be sure to arch your foot on the pop knee to bring height, making it easier to sit in your hip.

Lean & Stick

Maybe you want to avoid the knee pop & sit pose and try something that’s not as popular or too posy. How about a relaxed position where it feels a bit more casual? Leaning to the side naturally makes other areas pop. I like this pose because it’s chill and takes minimal effort. Just lean onto the counter and stick one of your hips out to the side.

Prop Your Leg UP

Anytime you prop your leg, you instantly create that famous C shape for your backside. This particular pose is great for putting emphasis on the hips and butt, plus this look is different from the traditional hand on hip. Another great aspect of this pose is the initial feeling you get to sit up straight, which we all know great body posture is flattering for showing off your shape.

Above everything, you most importantly need confidence to automatically look stunning in photos. Not matter what shape you have, every woman has curves, it’s all about working them in a flattering way.

I hope these tips help you take your posing game to the next level and you learn how to show off your body in new angles. For style and body posi inspo, check out @sheiconic too!

    Oooh thank you so much for these tips. I must admit although I’m usually confident with carrying what God gave me, I usually just freeze in front of the camera, so this really helps!

      I freeze in front of the camera too, especially when other people are taking my photo. I am starting to feel a bit more comfortable though!

    Such a positive blog post, I love it ❤ Love all your tips, i've always seen these models on instagram who just seem to do the perfect pose and then whenever I try to take a 'posey' picture it just doesn't seem to work. But i've learnt to love myself and those perfect pictures are 9 times out of 10 edited so much. It's great to see people like Iskra who's working it! Thanks for the advice, great read! 🙂
