Girls ditching size zero for hourglass figures

London: The size zero trend seems to be heading out as more and more girls are preferring to sport an hourglass figure.

Sales of curve-creating underwear, accessories and dresses have gone up, with celebrities like Kelly Brook’s body being the body shape most sought after.

Cosmetic surgery firm Transform has seen a 175 percent increase in a year for a 13,500 pounds op involving breast and bum implants and liposuction on waists.

“It seems we may be moving on from the size-zero craze. It’s no doubt in part due to gorgeous, curvy celebrities such as Kelly Brook or Holly Willoughby,” the Sun quoted a Transform spokeswoman as saying.

According to shop chain Peacocks, sales of waist-squeezing control underwear have doubled in a year, and bigger bras are also flying off the shelves.
