What to Wear for your Body Shape

marzo 30, 2017

Studies reveal that body image is among the top three concerns of young people. Generally, women have more worries about their appearance compared to their male counterparts, which explains why the mirror is every woman’s best friend. If you are having a hard time finding the most ideal outfit to wear, the key lies in knowing your proportions and using fashion to accentuate your best features while hiding everything else. Does that sound like rocket science to you? If it does, we have some helpful tips for you on what to wear for your specific body shape. Take a look:

It all starts with knowing your body type


Women’s bodies come in different shapes and sizes, thus are categorized into different types. They include apple body type (top heavy), pear body type (bottom heavy), straight/rectangular body type (waist is about the same size with bust and hips), and hourglass body type (narrow waist with equally-sized hips and bust). Depending on the size of these parts, you can be able to determine your body type to find clothes that will fit suitably.

Tips for dressing the apple body type

  • Having this body type means that you have a heavier upper body, so the main idea here is to choose clothes that accentuates other parts to direct attention away from your mid rift.
  • Go for blouses, shirts and t-shirts or dresses with a slight v-neck.
  • Opt to wear flared pants as opposed to tights, skinny or straight-leg pants.
  • Steer clear of dresses, tops and belts that pinch at your waist, and instead choose those that drape over curves that you wish to conceal. Tight hugging clothing tends to draw attention to curves that are better off hidden.
  • If you have this body type, it means that you have a heavier lower body, so the main idea here is to choose clothes that direct attention to your body and keep attention away from your lower half.
  • Try to balance your top with your bottom by wearing shirts, blouses or dresses that accentuate your shoulders.
  • Avoid tights and pants that narrow your legs.
  • Consider wearing a bra that enhances or pushes your bust up.
  • Consider choosing slightly-flared or straight-leg pants with heels.

  • Consider choosing slightly-flared or straight-leg pants with heels.

Tips for dressing rectangular/straight body type

  • This body type is characterized by long, thin body that lacks curves, at times referred to as a ‘boyish’ body type. The aim is to choose clothes that flatter the thin profile, divide the figure and form curves that move about up and down from the waist area.
  • Consider wearing dresses and belts that pinch in your waist to exaggerate curves.
  • Add femininity, volume and texture to your silhouette by wearing dresses with lots of embellishments to make certain areas appear bigger.
  • Stock up on bright tights and miniskirts to reveal your legs.
  • Consider shape wear and shaping undergarments.

Tips for dressing hourglass body type

  • This being the most preferred body type due to its well balanced nature, almost everything a woman with an hourglass body type wears looks great.
  • However, it’s advisable that hourglass-shaped lasses avoid clothes that make them look boxy.
  • When dressing, make your waist the focal point by wearing snug dresses that flatter your waistline.
  • Balance both your top and bottom and accentuate your waist with accessories.
It’s important for you to know that there’s no best or worst body type. What may be preferred in one particular locale and at a certain period of time may not be well-liked in a different locale at that particular time. With that said, you can now feel confident knowing that whatever your body type is probably what another woman strives to achieve.
