My shape has always been the same.
Bigger and smaller, but basically the same.
Each morning we wake up and decide what to wear and hopefully a quick decision and one that feels good. Knowing our individual body shape makes the job of dressing that much easier.
Sometimes I forget that I am not a tall willowy creature with legs to rival Naomi Campbell, but rather a medium build with a tendency to the pear shape. Like many fashion decisions; shape determines what styles we wear and how we adopt them. We can work the styles, it is simply a question of know how.
I can: * Wear round and V-necks; also statement, bell-sleeves to emphasise shoulders.
Your waist is wider than your bust and your hips are fuller in comparison to your narrow shoulders. ✔ that’s me.
* Fitted and structured dresses or fuller skirts to draw attention to a smaller waist.
* A mid-length hemline to elongate.
* Wear round and V-necks; also statement, bell-sleeves to emphasise shoulders.
You have a well-defined waistline with a fuller bust, hips and thighs.
*Highlight your neckline and draw attention to your waist.
*Wear wrap or fitting dresses and tops.
*Avoid loose-fitting items that make your shape look too boxy. Belt it up to cinch your waist.
She can: *Try relaxed and floaty pieces.
Your body is well proportioned, with shoulders that are broader than your hips.
*Wear looser styles on top and slim pants or pencil skirts on the bottom.
*Work any hemline and more often than not, show off the legs.
*Try relaxed and floaty pieces.
I would: *Choose draped/cinched fabric styles to give the impression of a more hourglass shape.
Your shoulders and hips are very similar in build and your weight is evenly balanced throughout your body.
*Tuck in by adding a belt to draw attention to the waist.
*Wear sleeves to make the shoulder line look wider and the hips and waist narrower.
*Choose draped/cinched fabric styles to give the impression of a more hourglass shape.
All shapes are wonderful and workable and that’s what we must see in the mirror. Acceptance and being happy with what we have goes a long way to the perfect outfit. Plus a bit of know how.xv
