While in our last article we talked about various body types, here we help you and your body to fit into the right kind of attire!
So here we go!
BODY SHAPES FOR WOMEN AND TIPS TO DRESS UP:
1. Inverted triangle-
In this body type generally broader shoulders is what attracts the attention. Apple shaped women are bigger on the top half of their bodies than the lower half. Slim hips and a large chest and stomach.
You must draw attention away from your shoulders by choosing dark colours and fitter uppers. V necked and square necked shirt looks great on this body type. For lower body, high waited outfits flatters your body and adds instant curves and definition to your hips.
2. Hourglass –
Hourglass shaped women have well-proportioned upper and lower bodies with a narrow waist. They are inclined to gain weight all over the body in particular the hips and chest area. This is very well recognized where waist is small and your upper body is symmetrical to the lower body. This body type looks great when worn right clothes to flaunt your tiny waist. Crop tops, fitted dresses, fitted skirts and fitted high waist trousers makes your curves look more smooth and sexy.
3. Banana/Rectangle –
Ruler shaped women are waif-like thin (don’t you just love em!). No significant differences between the size of their hips, waist and shoulders. Weight is gained on their stomach and back sides.
Here the whole body frame lies in one proportion. In this body type the efforts should be made to make the waist look smaller in order to balance out the rest of the body. The empire waist dresses and tops makes this body type look amazing. Belts would do wonders to highlight the waist.
This is one the most common body shapes around. Pear shaped women have larger lower bodies and small upper bodies. Hips are slightly wider than the shoulders and weight is gained below the wait. Usually have small chests and flat stomachs.The lower body is broader than the upper so in order to proportionate the body one must focus on the shoulders more and should wear outfits that give slime appearance to the hips and legs. Light colours are always preferable. And this body type has the advantage of showing off their bare shoulders in order to utilise their body the best.
