Ah, adolescence. Mood swings, hormones, peer pressure, growth spurts, and, in many cases, curves! For some odd reason, my male classmates loved to talk to me/my chest. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I wore a D cup bra by the time I was 12. Just a guess.
Growing up in a conservative Catholic family, I was extremely uncomfortable with anything remotely related to the word “sexy”, so I tried to hide my curves in overalls, turtlenecks, and my older brother’s flannel shirts (thanks, Franco!).
Thankfully, today’s curvy teens don’t have to hide their beautiful bodies; they can rock them in trendy, chic, and affordable juniors clothes from Chic and Curvy Boutique, a plus size boutique in Inglewood, CA, whose motto is “Accessorize, Accentuate, and Always Rock Your Curves”.
Now curvy teens can own the dance floor at Homecoming in dresses like this fuchsia and teal leopard print dress or hit the books in style with their palazzo pants in a retro yet modern black and multi-colored paisley print (see links to both below).
No matter what you look choose, my curvy teens, please embrace who you are, love your curves, and stay out of your older brother’s closet!
