Most women fall into one of these four categories: Apple body shape, who are thick around the middle and have undefined waist, the triangle body shaped people are larger at the bottom, small bust and have defined waist, hourglass are curvy, defined waist,and evenly proportioned, and rectangle -straight up and down. While you may be tempted to buy clothing for the figure you wish you had, the fact is that you should dress the for the body you have in the best way possible.
The fact is that all women have an area on their body which they aren’t too happy with, which is fine, but just remember that even your perceived flaws can be dressed to look okay by choosing the right clothing for your body type.
HOW TO DRESS FOR THE TRIANGLE/ PEAR BODY SHAPE: For pear-shaped women who have full hips and thighs, their dress should shouldn’t be shorter than an inch or two above the knee. If you have a pear shape, select a dress with an A-line skirt but not something too full. A short, super fuller dress will look like a tu-tu. To draw the attention away from your lower body, select a dress with a plunging V-neck, halter top or embellished neckline. This would look good on them.
FOR THE CIRCLE/ROUND BODY SHAPE: If you are an apple-shaped woman with a thick middle, you need to elongate the appearance of your torso and draw the attention away from your waist. You should select a dress with an empire or drop waist to re-define your waist line. Do not use thick belts cinched around your midsection and instead choose a chain or sash belt slung low on your hips.
HOW TO DRESS FOR AN HOURGLASS FIGURE: These people can show off their curves inform-fitting sheaths and A-line dresses. A stretchy sheath dress is comfortable and it will flaunt your shape in a classy manner. Shifts are also fantastic if you prefer to show less hip and accentuate the top half of your body instead. Wear dresses that flaunt your defined waist line.
HOW TO DRESS FOR A RECTANGLE SHAPE: If you have a rectangle shape, adding definition is key for your shape. Look for form-fitting shapes, gentle ruching to create a curvy illusion and revealing necklines. A dress with a square neck and nipped or fitted waist is a great choice for you. Accents like belts can also create definition for this body shape. Full printed skirts are another dress element that can create a curvier look for a rectangle.
A rectangle body shaped woman shouldn’t dress like a circle body shaped woman. Wear dresses that fit your body type in order to avoid fashion disaster.
