It can sometimes be difficult to dress to accentuate your shape, especially if you are having trouble loving your curves. However, accentuating your assets can make you look stylish and will help you to feel happy and confident. Often, generic style advice doesn’t apply to women that are plus size. Once you have decided what your body shape is, Froxx plus size designers will have something that flatters your figure and will make you feel beautiful and confident.
Pear Body Shape
Pear-shaped bodies often have narrow shoulders and curvy hips and thighs. The top of the body is smaller than the lower part of the body. This is a common shape for curvy women. The best tips for a pear body shape are those that draw the eye away from the hips. They need to add movement and width to the bust to balance out the difference between the top and bottom parts of the body. Choose V-neck, cowl or one-shoulder top styles. Anything with a decorative detail at the neckline or bust is also a good option.
Apple Body Shape
Apple-shaped bodies are generally fuller in the middle. Women with an apple-shaped body tend to have full breasts and a less defined waist. The hips tend to be slenderer. As with dressing for any body shape, the idea is to create balance. Therefore, you will want to draw attention away from your stomach. You can skim over your tummy area completely, or you can re-define where your midsection is. You could wear a belt just underneath your bust as this is normally the smallest part of your torso and this will redefine your shape.
Hourglass Body Shape
This is the most well-known body shape. Women with an hourglass figure have a slimmer waist, but a fuller bust and bigger hips and thighs. When you have an hourglass figure, it is important to show off those curves. This is a classic shape, and most women would love to have it, especially as it was popularised by women such as Marilyn Monroe. Dressing an hourglass body is all about defining and accentuating your waist. You can create an even more curvaceous look by adding a bit of volume to your upper and lower body. Wrap dresses and blouses are particularly flattering.
Diamond Body Shape
Diamond-shaped women have slender shoulders and arms, a wider stomach, wide hips and thighs with slimmer calves. A diamond body shape can often result in an undefined waist. When you have a diamond-shaped body, you will want to find clothing that elongates the body without adding any extra weight to the bust, waist and hips. Look for darker tones when choosing bottoms as these minimise hip-width. Also, choose clean lines that fall straight down from the hip.
Inverted Pyramid Shape
Wide shoulders and a fuller bust characterise the inverted pyramid shape. Most women with this body shape tend to have slender hips and legs. Inverted triangle shaped women can rock a peplum top. A cascading, waterfall jacket will also look and feel great on you.
