Growing curves in the right places can make a woman's body look sexier and more feminine. If you have a straight body that does not have very many curves, or a body that is slightly underweight you may be wondering how to gain curves. Gaining curves in the appropriate places takes eating a healthy diet and working out to gain muscles. Targeting the legs, thighs and buttocks area as well as your chest and stomach will help you to gain the curves that you want to achieve.
