DRESS ACCORDING TO YOUR BODY SHAPE: A GUIDE

6nSBIA TEOjWph

Hey Sweetheart..!! You being here means that even you are looking for that perfect dress that will justify your body shape to another extent! Not every dress suits everyone, right? While doing that “WINDOW SHOPPING”, doesn’t it irritate you and you feel like kicking that window off! Ouch! That ought to hurt….

No more hurting your legs in kicking and no more feeling insecure when it comes to your body-shape! Today, you’ll get to know what dress suits you the best.

When it comes to body-shapes, they have been classified into many different categories, such as APPLE BODY SHAPE, HOUR-GLASS BODY SHAPE, PEAR BODY SHAPE, RECTANGLE BODY SHAPE, INVERTED TRIANGLE BODY SHAPE, etc.

So, let’s jump into them and create our own Style Statement…!!!!!!!

  • APPLE BODY SHAPE
  • WHAT IS APPLE BODY SHAPE?

You fall under this category if you have a heavier upper body as compared to your lower body. Apple Body Shape has broad shoulders and bigger bust line because of which it looks like your weight is gathered in the middle.

  • WHAT TO WEAR?

The idea is to take the attention off of the heavier section, that is, your midd-riff. It’s time to highlight your strengths. So flaunt your legs, i.e., wear a dress with a V cut since it creates an elongated illusion of the torso. A LINE cut is best for you.

To add-on to it, you can wear printed dresses since they don’t bring attention to your heavy midd-riff. To shift the focus, you can complete your look by wearing a jacket, especially the dark colored ones. You can also wear flowy tops.

As for the bottoms, flared bottoms and palazzos are your go-to partners. Oh and yes, don’t forget, since you have broad shoulders and a bigger bustline, choose the right bra!

  • WHAT NOT TO WEAR?

Avoid skinny jeans with body hugging tops. As for occasions, avoid figure hugging dresses as much as possible as they then highlight the heavier section. For all the belt users, avoid waist belts and go for upper waist belts to strike the balance!

  • PEAR BODY SHAPE
  • WHAT EXACTLY IS PEAR BODY SHAPE?

It’s just the opposite of Apple Body Shape. Pear body shape is all in your lower part of the body. Your thighs and butt are heavier as compared to your upper body. Before we move towards the clothing, know this, you are really lucky if you have this figure naturally or maybe by gym! Let’s know why!

  • WHAT TO WEAR?

When styled correctly, you can create a look exactly that of hour-glass! Yes! You heard me… And this is possible because you have narrow shoulders and wide hips. All you have to do is strike a balance. Confused? Keep reading.

Wear A-Line patterned skirts with ruffled tops because they add definition to your upper body. Skinny jeans with loose tops help you create an hourglass shape.
To stand out of the crowd, you can go for crop tops, Deep-V or even boat necks. They will balance out your bottom!

  • WHAT NOT TO WEAR?

Avoid skin fitting clothes for the upper and more importantly, avoid loose pants.

  • HOUR-GLASS BODY SHAPE
  • WHAT IS AN HOUR-GLASS BODY SHAPE?

A dream come true, isn’t it? An hour-glass body shape is the one that is equally balanced and with a proportionate upper and lower body. You also have the perfect waist-line. While choosing the dress, make sure it does justice with this figure of yours. Flaunt it while you can.

  • WHAT TO WEAR?

To flaunt your upper body, choose sweetheart or a V-Neckline. Next comes your waist. To flaunt your waistline, choose a belt that goes to your exact natural waistline or maybe below your belly-button. Yes! That’s right. A belt below the belly button does justice to your perfect waistline. As for your lower body, A-Line dresses work the best.

If you aren’t the one for the dresses, choose skin-fitting jeans or capris. Well, you can flaunt those perfect legs, can’t you! 

  • WHAT NOT TO WEAR?

Well, the advantage of this figure is that you can wear anything and everything. BUT…. Try avoiding loose tops or bottoms, because it doesn’t do justice with your body shape.

  • RECTANGLE BODY SHAPE:
  • WHAT IS A RECTANGLE BODY SHAPE?
1 57964069 1f14 448b a9f3 9f5e9aed0ce0 2048x2048

A fairly straight forward body shape with well balanced shoulders to hips. Advantage of this body shape is that you can wear almost everything and you can still slay the look! But just like every other body shape, there are pros and cons to this one as well.

  • WHAT TO WEAR?

Rectangular Body Shape is almost like an Hour-Glass minus the waistline. So try going for A Line Skirts and Layered Tops. But most importantly, your go-to dresses will always be sleeveless, strapless and especially sweetheart lines. Your well defined shoulders will do wonders once you go for these kinds of dresses or tops.

Eventually, your body shape is the one that can slay every look but you still need to do justice with this well defined body shape and hence you can try avoiding dresses with extra frills and dresses that are overarching because they would just hide your figure and won’t do justice with it.

Well, we can give you hundreds of tips and thousands of ideas to go for with your body shape but it is equally important for you to have a knowledge of your own body shape. If you aren’t aware of your own body shape, you can not go for the perfect dress on occasions as well as your daily life. What we usually do is, if a dress doesn’t fit, we think of ourselves as an unfit person which isn’t true. Not every dress is for every body-shape. You at least should know how loose it will suit you or what fitting would look the best!

Everything has a loophole, you just need to look in the right place. Once you’ve found the perfect fit and knowledge, BOOM! You are ready to drop every jaw on the way girl!

Hope this helped, see you soon with much more interesting facts!

KEEP SHOPPING!
