Having a curvy body or hourglass figure is the ultimate look of femininity, that was made popular by the late Marilyn Monroe and other 60's female Hollywood icons.

Note: Everyone's bone structure and built are based their genetics but that doesn't mean you cannot sculpt the body of your dreams. However, you must keep in mind a realistic goal to achieve the best curves your body can produce.
Now let's get started.
Step 1: Shed the excess weight by doing cardio
For your true curves to show you need to lose the excess body fat that is hiding them. That's why the first step is to lose the excess body fat.
And one of the most powerful and effective way to do that is by doing cardio.
Generally speaking, your body needs to burn more calories than the amount you consume.
Cardio is just a type of exercise that will help to burn through the calories that you ate through the day.
There are various types of cardio that you can do, for example, walking, sprinting and jogging.
It depends on what your fitness objectives are but some cardio workouts are definitely better suited than others.

However, if you are slim and have a petite body structure skip this step because the purpose of doing cardio in this case is to help you lose weight.
