Know and Dress Your Body Type







1. Banana – this body shape means that your chest, waist and hips are almost in equal width / circumference. They say that in all shapes, this is the most "boyish" of all, but they have an advantage because they can wear V-necks or short skirts without looking too skimpy. What to wear: Something that highlights your waist, or flatters your chest and hips. Belts are your friends because they make your waist look smaller. Partner any chiffon dress with a thick belt which makes your waist look smaller, which automatically makes your chest and hips look evenly proportioned.

2. Apple – this body shape means that your upper body is in bigger proportion than in your lower body such as hips or legs. Other body shapes envy this body shape because most have 'large breasts' which make them look sexy. Since they have small proportioned legs, they can wear short skirts or shorts without looking awkward or bulky. What to wear: Something that decrees the size of your chest and arms, and flaunts your legs. Long sleeved blouses and dresses, paired with shorts or skirts are the way to go! Pair a cardigan with cute shorts or your favorite jeans.

3. Pear – This body type means that your lower body is in larger proportions than your upper body. Many women complain with this body shape because they have difficulty looking for something that will make their hips look smaller. If you know the trick to making your hips look smaller, you will not have to worry about a thing. What to wear: Look for something that hides the hips, such as a pleated dress. Any lower garment that does not hug the shape of your hips is a good idea.

4. Hourglass – congrats! You have a evenly proportional chest and hips, with a small waist. This means that any clothing that highlights the smallness of your waist and highlights your chest and / or hips, will flatter your body shape. What to wear: Look for garments that hug your body shape, but make sure that the you will only choose to flatter either your upper or lower body side from your waist. Weaving cleavage revealing tops and short bottoms will make your look cheap. The key is subtly being subtly sexy, such as a bodycon mini dress.

Remember, these are just basic tips. The principle is flaunt your positives, and pacify your negatives. Another thing, it's not just what you wear, but it's also about you, the wearer. It's how you carry yourself, being confident even if you are just wearing sweatpants and a raggy shirt. Happy shopping ladies!
