How To Dress For Your Body Shape by TimelyApparel: 11:01am On Sep 16, 2021
We were all created uniquely which means you have a different body structure and I equally have a different body shape.

You'll look really good and beautiful if you put on a dress that fits your body shape

P.S There are different body types so this will be a continuous thread of ideal clothing for each body shape.

Let's say you have a fuller bust and then your hips region is small one trick to consider when dressing is simply wearing an outfit that takes the attention away from there to your neckline or even flaunt your legs

Examples of ideal dresses to wear

1. Wrap tops : A wrap top will highlight your shoulders, neckline

2. Peplum :This covers your waistline

3. V-necked dresses

4. Jackets

5. A-line dresses

6. Avoid belting your waist, rather wear your belt on your upper waist

Hour glass body type

This is a more balanced type of body with a well defined waist line


It's usually the most wanted body type for all ladies

Unfortunately,not all ladies can have it nor maintain it

So if you are endowed with this shape rock it with joy!!!

Thinking of an ideal cloth to wear:

Basically and dress that snatches the waist works perfect
�Body con dresses
�V neckline and sweetheart neckline to flaunt your upper body
�High waist skirts and pants

Let's continue on knowing your body shape and the best kind of outfits that fits better and highlights your assets.

The pear body shape

What's a pear body shape��

Identifying it is quite simple, when your hips down to your thigh is bigger than your waist to burst just know you've got the pear shape.

Better still picture a pear in your mind, you know it's downside is bigger than it's top, right?? Exactly,if that's how you are you belong to the pear shape family ��

Despite your hip and burst being smaller than your hips, you can strike a balance in what you wear and still come out looking classy like a top celebrity ( Picture Kim k, Omotola, Mercy Aigbe �����

Ok, what should you wear?

Strike a balance in your clothes and put on something that flatters your lower body

� High waist skirts/trousers are best as it takes the attention off your upper body to your lower parts

� Wide legged trouser and jumpsuit works perfectly too.

�A-line skirts and dresses

� off shoulders, v neck, boat neckline also help elongate the upper body

�fit and flare cut

�Wear bright color in your upper body


AVOID

�Skinny trousers and and tight tops as this make your smaller upper body and bigger downside more obvious

� Avoid embellishments and designs that drags attention to your hips

� Avoid Tops that go beyond the hips

RUN AWAY FROM

Finally we are wrapping up our series on knowing ones body type.

The last one is inverted triangle (a triangle turned upside down) also known as carrot shape

It's almost similar to the apple body that has has big upper part( burst and tummy inclusive)

For an inverted triangle body shape the weight is in the burst and shoulders with a well defined waistline (small waist) and mostly no curves and slim legs

Meaning you are big at the burst and shoulder and slim from your waist down to your ankle
��

What should you wear for an inverted body shape?

� Wrap tops and dresses gives the waist a defined shape

� A-line,flared and layerd skirts/dresses as they make your hip looks big

� Bootcut, wide leg and flared trouser is a great choice as it covers up the slim legs



Now you know your body type, step up your dressing game by following what's best for your body.
