With so many trends to keep up with, some of us question “Will this look good on me?” Although there are no rules for fashion, we can still look for clothing that can enhance our body shapes and make us feel even better. It’s a beautiful thing that we all come in different shapes and sizes! In our ultimate guide to body shapes, we take a closer look at four common body shapes that you can be– and sometimes even a combination of two. Find out what your body shape is and what kind of clothing looks absolutely stunning on you!
Hourglass shapes have a well-balanced proportion with fuller hips, thighs, and bust. Your waist is also well-defined and if you describe your body as curvy then you have an hourglass shape! Show off those amazing curves with body-hugging pieces that define your waist and embrace your silhouette. With this body shape, try staying away from boxy styles that can “cut” or hide your beautiful curves.
If you notice that your hips are wider than your shoulders and you have a tiny bust, then you’re most likely a pear-shaped or triangle body shape. You have a fuller rear and whether you’d like to flaunt or hide your features, a pear-shaped body type is a well-defined shape that looks great in jeans, dainty tops, A-line dresses, and belted styles.
Although apple-shapes don’t have well-defined waists like hourglass and pear-shapes, apple shapes are generally well-proportioned. Your busts are larger than your hips and your legs is one of your best features. With this body shape, V-necks highlight your amazing bust line and flowy tops look great on you. Pair with a great pair of skinnies or leggings to show off those legs as well! As for dresses, rock those strapless styles including wrap and maxi dresses.
Also known as athletic or the straight body shape, rectangle shapes are absolutely fun to dress! With their shoulders, busts, and hips in alignment, your shape looks great in almost anything. You can flaunt or hide any feature you feel comfortable with. Strapless, halter, racerback, and scoop/round necklines look great on you. And when it comes to dresses, most styles look great on you depending on which feature you choose to accentuate.
