What Is An Apple Shaped Body?
Apple shaped women tend to have larger busts and broader shoulders with narrower hips, slender legs and a less defined waist.
The general idea on how to dress an apple shape is all about drawing the attention away from your midsection and highlighting your chest and legs.
Tips For Dressing An Apple Shaped Body
- Make the focus your legs or your bust – This will take the focus away from your midsection by highlighting your legs and chest. Plunge necklines and shorter lengths are the simplest ways to do this.
- Define your waist – Dresses that nip you in under the bust help create a more defined waistline. Opt for skater dresses, shirred dresses, wrap dresses or add a belt to any dress to achieve the same effect.
- Choose clothes that flatter your shape – Know what styles suit your shape and how you can enhance your best features. It’s all about trial and error to find the styles that flatter you the most.
What Is The Best Dress Style For An Apple Shape?
- Puff sleeve dresses – Puff sleeves and statement sleeves help balance out broader shoulders with extra volume to the upper arm. They also help lift your eye upwards away from the midsection.
- Skater dresses – Instantly create a more defined silhouette by nipping you in under the bust. They often feature a belted tie fastening with a voluminous skirt for a flared finish.
- V-neck dresses & wrap dresses – Deep necklines are super flattering for bigger busts and also draw the eye up away from your midsection.
