Can You Give Your Body Real Curves?

Whether you’re looking to manifest the figure that you have always wanted, or you simply want to be able to wear different clothes or make a bigger impact in a bodysuit, it is not uncommon for women to wish that their bodies were a little more voluptuous. There’s a lot to be said for learning to love yourself but, at the same time, if you want to make a change, it’s good to know that there are options out there. Here, we’re going to look at steps you can take to give your body feminine curves.

Know the pros and limits of weight control exercise

Although you can improve muscle definition and tone in specific spots through exercise, it’s important to keep in mind that the same doesn’t work for weight loss. You can’t do exercises to burn fat specifically off your waist, for instance. Instead, what you’re going to see is more general fat reduction which, depending on your body type, may well help or hinder your efforts, especially if you’re trying to create an hourglass figure. However, when it comes to losing fat, then HIIT training, or High-Intensity Interval Training, tends to be a lot more effective than long bouts of cardio, both for changes in your appearance and your heart health.

Tone your hips

As mentioned, you might not be able to specifically remove fat from certain areas of the body through exercise, but you can certainly improve definition, build tone, and even increase muscle mass by training certain parts of the body. After all, curves aren’t all about where there’s fat, muscle can support those curves as well. For instance, you can tone your hips with a range of exercises. Squats are the best for building your lower body in general, but other exercises, such as fire hydrants and lunges can work just as well. There is going to be a limit to how much you can build up these areas with exercise alone, as most people tend to hit a plateau after a while, but this can be supported through nutrition to push those limits.

Exercise to boost your breasts

It might not sound all that plausible. After all, your bust is largely going to be made up of fat tissue. However, you can, indeed, build up your bust, and maybe even increase your bust size, naturally through exercise. By toning your shoulders, as well as the breast muscles beneath the fat tissue, you can build muscle mass which can effectively push out that chest, increasing its size. There are factors that will, of course, determine how much you can do this, such as genetics, hormones, and different stages of your life. However, it’s worth looking at what you can do to boost your bust size naturally through exercise.

Manage your body’s fat content through your eating habits

Most of the changes to fat distribution within your body are going to be done through diet, not exercise. However, when it comes to a curvy figure, you might not specifically want to lose as much weight as possible. Rather, you want to aim for a healthy body fat percentage. Your doctor can tell you what the current percentage is and, from there, you can eat to increase or decrease it. Regardless, do it healthy, cutting out unhealthy fats and sugars from your diet where possible. Sometimes, decreasing overall body fat percentage means that your body’s natural curves become more easily noticeable, but sometimes adding some can also enhance those curves if you’re a little under the health range.

Tightening your body shape

Now that we have talked about some of the methods of adjusting your curves naturally, it’s worth looking into the surgical options, as well, because there are some that can be greatly effective. Your curves can be improved by addressing the changes to your body that might have made them less noticeable over time. For instance, there are body contouring techniques that are designed to remove excess skin, to help you tighten up areas of the body, such as your belly, which can in turn make your curves a lot easier to see.

Take the direct approach with your breasts

Another cosmetic procedure, and one that is very common in the world of cosmetic treatments, is breast augmentation. Typically, this refers to the treatment that gives women implants, increasing the size of their breasts. However, it’s important to know that this isn’t the only treatment available for this part of the body. If you’re trying to achieve a youthful breast contour, then a breast lift might be what you need instead. This is typically done by removing the excess skin from the breasts, and might even include changes to the areola to give your breasts a tighter, younger aspect. Of course, some women even go for a breast reduction treatment, but that’s not as relevant to the goals we’re talking about here. When talking about implants, it’s worth noting the increasing popularity of butt implants, as well, which can enhance your curves in another way.

Removing fat directly from the body

While exercise might not be able to remove fat specifically from certain spots of the body, the same is not true of cosmetic options. Whether you aim for a less invasive (but also less dramatic) method like CoolSculpting, or you opt for liposuction, which can remove much more in terms of fat volume, this can help you target pockets of fat in specific areas. For instance, removing excess fat from your belly without touching your thighs or bust could, indeed, help you maintain an hourglass figure. However, over time, fat distribution throughout the body is likely to even out one way or another, so you should get an idea of what results you can expect in the long term.

There are some limits as to what you can achieve, be it through changes to your own habits, or the use of cosmetic procedures. However, the tips above should show that there’s still a lot that you can do.
