24 Waist-Enhancing Fashions

 - Jan 9, 2009
The waist is one of the most appealing yet useful parts of the human body. On a woman, this is the curved area lying just above the hips, creating a natural shelf to both wear accessories and rest something useful.

Ruffles and origami-shaped fabric are popular, as are modern sharp-lined futuristic belts by Fleet Ilya.

Then there is the practical use of the waist--video game and purse-like belt buckles, hands-free dog walking devices and fabulous bum bags to carry all your must-haves without burdening oneself with a heavy handbag.
