How to| Dress For Your Body Shape


Have you ever had the problem of some clothes just not looking good on you, even though you are fit as fiddle? Or maybe you are not fit, but that doesn't mean you don't deserve to dress well either. The reason for this could be that you are not dressing for your body type. Certain clothes, cuts and silhouettes are made to flatter only some particular body types. The first step in dressing for your body type is to figure out exactly what your body shape is. Do not take into account the fact that you are overweight or too thin. Just look in the mirror and figure out what your body shape is according to its measurements. Also, notice that for most body types there are three things you should be doing while dressing up: find the parts you should be emphasizing, the parts you should be drawing attention towards and the parts you should be drawing attention away from.

When it comes to women, the common body shapes are:  Apple, Straight/Rectangular, Pear and Hourglass.


The simplest way to identify an apple body is that they are top heavy. They will have a bust that is significantly bigger and the waist will often be shapeless. These body shapes should try to draw attention towards their tight butt and shapely legs, draw attention away from their thicker waistline and arms. They should try to highlight their ample bust and neck.


When wear ethnic wear, keep in mind:

Straight/Rectangular Body:

This body type is straight from top to bottom. They have waist and hips and shoulders almost at the same measurements. They should draw attention towards their toned build and try to create a more feminine shape by adding belts, ruffles, frills to create more curves.



In case of ethnic wear,
Pear Shape:

This body type is bottom heavy. They have relatively smaller upper body, shapely waist and heavier hips and thighs.



When it comes to wearing ethnnic wear:

Hourglass Shape

This is the most gorgeous body shape in which women have same measurements for their bust and hip and a narrow waistline. This shape is womanly. This is the shape that all women try to achieve while dressing.



And when it comes to ethnic wear,

So have a long and hard look at your body and learn to dress your body and love it for all that it is. But most of all, wear what you wear with confidence, and get up, dress up and show up! :)
