Dress According to Your Body Type

When choosing which clothes to wear, you want to create an illusion of having a balanced body. The neat hourglass body type is considered by many as the best. Shoulders and hips define this type of frame in line, a curved bottom, a small waist and a defined bust.

They focus on problem areas such as the tummy, bottom, arms, and thighs among others.  This aspect can infiltrate your judgment as far as seeing the whole picture is concerned. It is essential not to focus on one body type so that you get a dress that fits you best.


To have a better understanding of your body, look at yourself in the mirror while dressing in your briefs. Stand in a posture such that your legs are together with arms a bit far from your sides. Examine yourself and note the body shape and type that best defines you. These body types include; the inverted triangle, the rectangular body, the lean column body shape, the apple body shape, the pear body shape, the neat hourglass and the full hourglass body shape.

After analyzing these body types, you will perhaps know what looks best on you. Always look for a dress that will make you feel confident.  Most woman will still want to show their curves. For this reason, it is important to choose clothes that put a more significant focus around the waist. Avoid baggy clothes as your primary attention is directed towards the waist. When it comes to undergarments, chose those that fit correctly and be sure to wear the right type of bra.
