The experts pick their top brands for shapely girls Audrey Sun from Harvey Nichols: 'Try Halston Heritage, Tibi, Red Valentino, Jaeger London and Missoni.' Sarah Rutson from Lane Crawford: 'We sell a great deal of Alexander McQueen in larger sizes and have customers requesting Roland Mouret because it gives shape and the cuts are fantastic. Sharon Wauchob is great for her fit and drape styles without too much volume.' Catherine Martsch from Love It: 'My favourite brands are Canadian-based Joseph Ribkoff and English-based Nougat.' Lu Ng from Joyce: 'Donna Karan has very beautiful knitwear and dresses that drape nicely. Celine and Stella McCartney offer a more comfortable silhouette this season that skims the body.' I.T buying team: 'Japanese brands have less figure-conscious styles that are still feminine. Try Limi Feu, Zucca, Tsumori Chisato and mercibeaucoup.' Experts' style tips: Look for simple designs in darker colours such as a one-piece dress. Avoid styles with chunky elements. The biggest misconception is that fitted clothes don't suit bigger women - a larger woman wearing a sack-like or loose-fitting item will only look larger. Know your body shape. A mistake is to view all fuller-figured and/or curvy shapes as the same. Customers are rarely a standard size within one brand, let alone across labels. Make sure you have a selection of bras that are suited to your body shape. For larger sizes visit Bralicious at www.bralicious.com.hk A fantastic fitted blazer gives definition, while trousers that are well fitted and slightly flared from the knee down will make your legs appear long and lean. A-line-shaped skirts or dresses balance out the lower body. Don't be afraid of prints and colour - blood red is the shade for autumn and looks great on most shapes. Accessories are key to making a look your own.
