Ways to Flaunt YOUR Specific Body Type Series

Posted by Mary Elizabeth on

Hello Beauties!

I am so excited to begin our very first “official blog” with you today! This blog will consist of a series focused on “How to Dress for YOUR Specific Body Type.” In order to avoid a super long post, I decided to focus on one specific body type per day for this first blog series. I will cover the basic body types including the: apple, hourglass, pear, inverted/ (upside down triangle), and rectangle (up/down) shapes

.

So, if today’s body type I am covering does not relate to you, do not fret because your body type will be featured in one of the next blogs in this series soon. If you are unsure of what your body shape is, then be sure to follow this blog series and you will hopefully see where you fit by the end of this five part collection on the body types. I also want to quickly give a disclaimer that I am in no way saying just because your body falls into a certain shape that you must place yourself in a box and only search for clothes that fall into that category. Instead, I hope to help guide you in your shopping process in order to make you feel more confident! So let’s get started….

Today we will focus on the apple shape


Some of you may be feeling overwhelmed at this point, don’t worry I am going to walk you through it! So, what in the world is an apple shape? Well, I will give you a list of characteristics that are often associated with that of an apple shape.



These Include:


Broad ShouldersThin Arms
Normal to Full Size BustHips usually are smaller than bust

Undefined Waist

May/may not have a flatter bottom
Wider TorsoLong Legs

(Note: Having an apple shape does not mean you have to have a large stomach, it just usually means the largest part of your frame resides around the upper and mid-section of your body frame, while the legs and arms tend to be more narrow/long.)

So, now that you know what an apple-shape is, what can you do to flaunt that shape? I will give you some tips to enhance those curves and show off your shape in all the right places!

Tips To Consider When Shopping for an Apple Shape Body:

1) Look for Dresses/Tops that camouflage the middle section.

  • (Dresses/Shirts with a tied waist will help cinch in your waist line and create definition to your shape)  

2) Look for a Dress/Top with an elongating neckline that creates a flattering bust line without drawing TOO much attention.

  • (Scooped, V-Shaped, & plunging neckline work great)

3) Draw attention on those killer long legs!

  • (Rock some high heels or short boots with heels, wide leg pants can also help, calf-length boots, wedges)
