Whether you are tall, shorter, wide, or small, each woman is born with a certain body shape. When it comes to clothing, picking the right clothing for your shape will make your clothing fit more properly. Some of the common body shapes are hourglass, pear shape, and rectangle.
Many women prefer to have hourglass body shape more than the other types. Hourglass shape women have full hips and bust lines that are around the same width as their waist. The best clothing for this shape is fitted clothes with low necklines, straight pants and skirts, and dresses with fitted waistlines. Clothing that is extremely baggy or bulky should be avoided.
Women who have a pear shape often have a full bust line that is smaller than their hip area. They also have a small waist and a fully round bottom area, which is also called an apple bottom. In addition to having a round bottom, they also have full thighs. If you have a pear shape, you should look for clothing that adds more to your upper body area, such as shirts with short sleeves, straight dress with no flare, and boot cut jeans or pants. Like the hourglass figure, clothing that is baggy and adds bulk to your hip area should be avoided.
The rectangle shape applies to women who have a full bust and hip area that are the same width, and a small waist. They typically have a long vertical body with no major curves. It is recommended that women with a rectangle shape select clothing that add curves to their body, such as flowing dresses and shirts with shoulder pads. Fitted clothing should be avoided.
The key thing to remember is no one has a perfect shape. Use your individual sense of style and beauty to make yourself look and feel like the beautiful person that you are.
