How to Dress for Your Body Shape

How do you find clothes that compliment your body type? Women come in many shapes and sizes, so how do you locate clothes that fit your body type? The trick is to understand your proportions and to use fashion to highlight your best features while concealing your flaws.

 Firstly Determine The Type Of Body You Have

  • Keep an eye on your curves. Examine the connections between your bust, waist, and hips.
  • Take your bust, waist, and hip measurements. You may identify the shape of your body based on the size in inches to discover clothes that fit properly.
  • There is no such thing as a “best” or “worst” body type.
  • Every physical type has advantages and disadvantages. It’s all about knowing your body type and how to dress to appear your best.

The 4 Body Measurements

Planning an Event?

First and foremost, let’s get this over with. What body type are you? Taking four body measurements: shoulders, bust, waist, and hips is the most accurate approach to determine this. The geometry of your frame will be revealed by the relationship between these numbers. So bring out your measuring tape, strip down to your underwear, and let’s get this party started.


Wrap the tape loosely across the tops of your shoulders, just above your shoulder blades, at their widest position. It’s easy for the tape to come undone at this point, so keep that in mind.


Wrap the tape around your bust’s largest area. Hold it tightly enough to keep it in place, but not too tightly that it compresses your chest. It’s fine if you’re taking your measurements over a bra, especially if you usually wear one.


This can be confusing because your natural waist is not the same as where the waistband of your pants usually hits. The narrowest region of your waist, which is normally above the belly button, is what you’re after.


Wrap the tape underneath your hip bones, around your hips, and around your buttocks. It’s also fine to measure over underpants with this method.

What’s My Body Shape?

You’re ready to locate the garments that are most flattering for you once you’ve measured your measurements and identified your body type.

1. Apple Body Type

The upper half of your body (bust and waistline) is wider than the lower half if you have an apple body type (hips and legs). To emphasize your bustline, try V-neck tops, ruffles, and empire-waist dresses. Try low- or mid-rise pants with a bell bottom or straight leg if you’re feeling a little top-heavy and want to balance out your outfit. You might also try a stylish pencil skirt, minidress, or slim jeans.

2. Pear Body Type

Your hips are the widest area of your body if you have a pear body shape. With high-waisted pants and a striking belt, you can define your waistline and curvaceous lower half. Try a shoulder-defining jacket, a puff-sleeve blouse, or a strapless top to balance your proportions by directing focus to your top half. A boat neck top is also an excellent method to highlight your shoulders. Tops that accentuate your top half, as well as your distinct waist, will help to balance out your overall appearance. In any of the designs listed below, look for light, vibrant colours or prints.

3. Rectangle Body Type

Your hips and bust should be around the same width as your waist if you have a rectangle body type. Always attempt to squeeze your waist. Belts are your best friends!
Experiment with visual phenomena that aid in the creation of volume in your body: Keep in mind that layering will assist. Avoid wearing large or extra-wide clothing because they are unflattering. Straight cuts should be avoided at all costs. Cutouts, sleeveless tops, off-the-shoulder tops, sweetheart necklines, and A-line skirts and dresses are all great ways to draw attention to different sections of your body.

4. Hourglass Body Type 

You have a distinct waist with an hourglass body shape, and the fullest area of your bust is nearly the same breadth as your hips. With a defined waist, the hourglass body shape is naturally balanced. The trick to dressing this body type is to stick to its natural silhouette by dressing the top and bottom of the body appropriately while emphasizing the waist.
You must avoid making the body frame unbalanced by having it top-heavy or bottom-heavy. Belted high-waisted jeans, crop shirts, and wrap dresses draw emphasis to your thin waist. A belted trench or jacket that accentuates your hourglass form is a delightful outerwear option.

5. Triangle Body Type

The triangle body form is defined by broad shoulders and an upper body that is wider than the lower body. Dresses with strapless, off-the-shoulder, knotted, or cross fronts are ideal. Those with bows or decorations on top and a straight cut on the bottom half are also worth a shot. The aim is to use volume around the chest or shoulders to bring the eye upward to your torso; this is why dresses that define the waist and have an A-line shape or flow from the hip work effectively. You can also go for Pencil skirts, as long as they aren’t too tight, can be worn with a straight cut.
An A-line skirt with a good structure that draws attention to your waist. Mermaid skirts, ruffles, and frills around the waist and hips should be avoided.
