Finding pieces that will transition seamlessly from cooler to warmer months can be a bit of a struggle all on its own. Then, add in finding flattering pieces for a curvier body type — which has historically (and sadly) been left out of the fashion market — and you have a real task on your hands. But these pieces thankfully do exist, and if you’ve had a hard time trying to find them, our lineup below will be of service to your shopping needs.

Curvier body types require a different construction and silhouette to accentuate the right features — and our favorites include plenty of those. In fact, we’ve included everything from curve-hugging jeans to waist-snatching dresses and even good base layers. Each of them subsequently flatters a curvier body type while also functioning as a fabulous transitional piece to go from spring to summer. Keep scrolling to shop our top picks!
