I'm 18 years old - 5'2'' tall - 117 lbs - 34D
big hips, some tummy & love handles
(hate my weight but trying to fix it)
it really sucks trying to find clothes that skim over the curvier parts of me, don't make me look like I'm hiding something, & are still sexy, cute, and stylish.
help please! :)

hey girl, we're really similar..
im 5'1 and 115 lbs. but have 32DD's (yes people, it is possible!), a small waist and big hips (35-26-35, a true hourglass). its not unproportionate, just super curvy.
like you said, there's a HUGE difference between being thin/skinny and petite/small, so it can be difficult to find clothes that fit well. try shopping in the petite section at stores. the clothes are cut a little bit "shorter" than usual in order to fit your body well and look proportionate. it can be tough to find cute clothes that fit... but just keep looking!
try to draw attention to your thinnest parts (whether its your waist, arms, or legs).
try shirts and dresses with empire waists (will show off your chest and hide the tummy).
try jeans with a higher rise (will cover the love handles and not chop them off half way, creating a "muffin top").
try high waisted skirts (will cover up the tummy and love handles and show off your hips/curves).
try belting tops and dresses to show off your waist.
try to avoid super long tops (will make your legs look short).
avoid voluminous tops with lots of material (they will only add extra weight and volume, which you don't want!)
hope this helped a little! I know how hard it is to find cute, well fitting clothes!
