Denise Bidot enjoys full-figured fame

Denise Bidot enjoys full-figured fame | The Curvy Critique |

Denise Bidot’s plus-size dreams never included a successful career as a  plus-size model.

As one of the stars of NUVOtv’s fashion world-set reality series “Curvy  Girls,” Bidot is making a name for herself as an international model known for  her sexy curves.

But while she’s posed for clients that include Macys, Old Navy, Lane Bryant,  Forever 21 and, to name a few, Bidot never imagined she’d end up  becoming famous for her full figure.

“Very early on I knew I wanted to be in entertainment,” says Bidot. “I didn’t  know how, I didn’t know when, but I wanted to act. I wanted to be in films.”

A native of Miami who now calls New York City home, the Puerto Rican beauty  began taking acting classes at 12, nabbing small roles in commercials.

How to Pick the Right Peplum for Your Body Type

How to Pick the Right Peplum for Your Body Type | The Curvy Critique |
The peplum trend started last year and has only gotten bigger this year. Peplum is everywhere! From peplum dresses to tops, skirts, shorts and even pants. However, not all peplums are made the same; hence you need to know which style of peplum will best flatter your figure. Peplums add fullness to the hip area and cinch the waist. There is a variety of different peplums. Read on to find out which one works for you.
Gathered peplum This works well when you want to create a curve at the hip while appearing smaller at the waist. If your body shape is straight with a barely defined waist, make sure the peplum detail on your top sits right where your waist is as it will create that much wanted contrast between your hips and waistline.
Flared peplum This style of peplum flares like an A-line skirt. The waist of the flared peplum typically is not as cinched as it is in other styles. If you are heavier at the bottom this kind of peplum will flatter your figure by drawing in the waist and building an hourglass shape.
Pleated Peplum Pleated peplums are the most flattering on any body type. It can minimise the appearance of a belly. It accentuates and camouflages at the same time.  This versatile peplum works for all body types.
Asymmetrical Peplum You can play with this peplum style and it can be used for any body type depending on where the hem falls. The ones that are shorter at the side but longer in the front and back work for curvier body types. Styles that are longer at the sides but shorter in the front and back are ideal for those with narrow hips.
How to wear peplum


The most elegant way to wear a peplum top is to pair it up with a pencil skirt. Midi length will create the classiest ensemble.Another elegant option is to pair your top with a pair of narrow tailored pants. Make sure the top has some texture to it.
