5 Tips to Help You Dress for Your Body Shape

5 Dresses for 5 Different Body Types

As we all have heard before, women come in many different shapes and sizes. Although we are all beautifully made, some women tend to be more slim, while others are considered to be curvier. Knowing the types of dresses that look good on your body type can be challenging; especially when finding appropriate clothing for the workplace. It’s now time for you to figure out your body type and learn how to embrace every curve through fashion.  

So, what is your body type? Pear? Hourglass …?

After watching the video above, ask yourself, “what is my body?”

The first step to being a fashionista is knowing your own unique shape:

  1. Pear – If your hips and backside are wider than your shoulders then you have a pear-shaped body.

  2. Hourglass – This shape is defined by a women’s measurements, the circumference of bust, waist, and hips.

  3. Apple – If you have an apple shape, this means you’re top heavy. You also have a wide torso, broad shoulders and full bust.
  4. Inverted triangle – If you have this body type, you have hips that are narrower than your shoulders. Your waist is a bit straighter and less defined.

After discovering your shape, finding clothing that compliments your body will help you become more stylish. All women want to have an amazing wardrobe with items that fit every curve exquisitely. The video above will guide you in choosing fashionable pieces that will make you feel confident and comfortable in your skin.
