Apple Body Type: One of the most challenging body type to dress?

October 19, 2011


Most of the apple shaped women are not aware of the perfect kind of clothes suited for their body. They choose some clothes that make them look more bulky than ever. Instead of lamenting on your shape, you need to choose the right kind of clothes to have a balanced look. One of the most challenging tasks to choose the right kind of dresses is when you have an apple shaped body. You need to find clothes that can camouflage your troubled spots and highlight other positive spots. If you are not sure how to go about it, here is how to dress according to your apple shaped body.


1. Recognize the features


First you have to identify the features of your shape such as wide back, full breasts, slim arms and slim hips. You may also have a trim backside with some weight gain in the midsection. The upper part of the body is larger than the lower part. Buy clothes that cover the troubled areas and highlight the attractive features.


2. Choose a perfect tee


Choose a tunic style or a floaty tee. It can cover your midsection well. You can also choose an empire waist shirt that will help you to draw the attention away from your midsection. Shirts that reach below your waist are also a good option. For a balanced look, use a shirt that reaches the largest area of your hips. Another option is to choose a top with a lower neckline to shift the focus from the midsection to the top.


3. Light layers for shifting the focus


A waistcoat and a sleeveless tank is the best for covering your stomach and drawing the attention to your arms. A layered blouse of chiffon with a lightweight tank top is also ideal. Using a well fitting top that is lightweight is also beneficial for skimming the midsection.


4. Wear trousers for creating a balanced silhouette


For creating an even look between your upper and lower halves, choose wide-legged trousers. The wedge-capris are also a good choice to flaunt the slim looking ankles. Avoid using skinny trousers. But pairing it with a long tunic can help you to a certain extent.


5. Skirt to minimize the midsection


Wearing a skirt with full silhouette can help you to reduce the heavy midsection greatly. Pair with a slim-fit tunic to have an overall slim appearance. Skirts with high waistline can help you to camouflage your stomach and give a balanced look. Avoid wearing slim miniskirts. They may make you look heavier at the top.


6. Choose the right shoes


The type of shoes you wear can also contribute greatly to your looks. Find a perfect pair of shoes that continue the line of your legs. Try a strappy sandal with heel. If you have small calves wear the kitten heels for more comfort and looks. Chunkier shoes such as the wedges are also perfect for your body shape. Choosing heavy looking shoes are useful for balancing the upper part of your body.


Once you know the features of your body, it is easy to choose the clothes accordingly. You will have a clear idea about the features you want to highlight and those you need to hide. Choose appropriate dresses and maintain your style statement for every occasion.

Plus Size Fashion Tips

Tips for finding the right Plus Size bra.

Buying well-fitting bras can be a difficult task at the best of times, but being a plus size woman can sometimes make it seem impossible. We hope the following tips will be helpful the next time you are searching for new plus size bras.

Plus Size Bra Tip #1: Many women wear bras that are too wide around the middle and too small in the cup.

Tip: How do you know if your bra is too big? If the straps or the back falls down, the bra is too big. Slipping straps shouldn't be an issue.

Plus Size Bra Tip #2: When measuring yourself for a bra, be sure to get the tape snug under your breasts. You can distort the measurement if you accidentally measure across the bottom of your bust.

Plus Size Bra Tip #3: Check the bra band and be sure that it falls in the right place. A bra that fits correctly will fit around the smallest part of your back, not around your shoulder blades.

Plus Size Bra Tip #4: Check your under wire to ensure that it's working properly. If it leaves the center part of your chest, you'll need to increase the cup size. It should fit snugly against your skin, without causing pain, or discomfort.

Plus Size Bra Tip #5: Lift your arms to check the final fit of your bra by lifting up your arms. If you get over, or under spill, from the cups, you'll need to increase the cup size.

Plus Size Bra Tip #6: If you are having difficulty choosing a new plus size bra, look for a nude coloured bra with smooth cups and somewhat slimmer straps.
