To market clothing as “flattering” implies physical flaws that are in need of fixing and, as such, only serves to perpetuate our society’s warped ideas of female beauty.

Like this black Cup Sleeve Knit Top, which features slit, shoulder-exposing sleeves and hits above the belly button. With spare details and a diligently designed fit, it will be the 2015 CFDA Awards Kanye to your Kim: there for support and in case of emergencies, but opting to take a back seat and let you shine.
