Having the apple body shape means that your waist is really not there, you’ve got more than just a muffin top and your derriere is ample. We hope all that doesn’t sound harsh- after all, we’re here to face the truth and use it to our advantage, not lie to ourselves about our bodies. That never helps! And if you’re happy with your body the way it is, then you should keep loving it and dressing it accordingly! So, if your figure resembles that of Oprah, let’s say, you can be just as stylish- all you have to do is keep reading!
First of all, don’t think that finding refuge in baggy clothes will make your tummy go away! As instead, attention will go directly at it and any other feature’s effect on the eye will be dampened. What you should do is avoid adding extra volume around the waist. This means that you should avoid any kind of ruffles, embellishments, embroideries- any detail, whatsoever- along the waistline. You don’t have to give up such glamorous and glossy elements, though! Place them strategically on your purse- extra glam, no figure damage!
This amazing clutch is a good example and you can purchase it with a discount right now!
Moreover, the empire cut is made for you, milady! This cut brings attention to your bust and it is the key to a harmonious figure! Tunics and V-neck tops or dresses also have the effect of thinning the waistline and dramatizing the effect the bust has on the beholder. They graciously hide the silhouette problems, while highlighting the aces up your sleeve!
Beautiful legs should be shown, but make sure you wear a midi, A-line skirt because that is the type that will compliment your body shape! Maxi skirts are also a go-to item, and although you have to avoid ruffles, you don’t have to avoid pleats! We have to say it again, though- ruffles are big no! It doesn’t matter if we’re talking about blouses or skirts, nothing good will come out if you put some ruffles on!
When it comes to pants, don’t go for high waist pants, nor low waist pants! Try medium waist pants or wear the high waist pants with your blouse over them. Avoid voluminous pockets. These will only pinpoint areas of concern, instead of concealing them. And please, please, please stay away from elastic waist pants! The magic formula states that the best way to cloak a part you’re not happy with is to accentuate one that you’re proud of. Adding extra elements to your tummy will only paint a vivid picture of what you want to mask! Furthermore, puffy jackets are also a no-no! They can’t create the optical illusion of a defined waist and they will make you look stocky!
When it comes to colors, take our quick test to find out what color palette suits your skin tone and then carefully inspect your wardrobe. Of course, try not to go big on bright colors and go for more conventional shades. By no means do we say you should give up color – just don’t overdo it and don’t use bright colors on your trouble spots!
Take a good look at yourself and be honest. You don’t even have to tell anyone else if you don’t want to. Whether you dislike your body or you keep a positive attitude and love it the way it is, accepting what kind of body shape you have is the first step to attaining an impeccable wardrobe and making sure you always dress to impress! And remember: body slim lingerie makes wonders! Slimming panties with high waist are perfect for you! They also look very sexy.
