Spring 2012 is definitely partial to peplums, the short little flounce attached to a fitted bodice. A natural mirror of both lower figures and hourglass shapes, adept at accommodating curvy posterior assets. Yet the peplum can also create shape for a linear figure, and add balanced flare to an upper figure. A peplum can even camouflage the soft undulations of a middle figure.
