Socialeras women fashion experts say that it’s very important for a woman to know her body type as wearing clothes may bring down a woman’s confidence.
So let’s understand each body type and how you should dress if you have that body type.
Body type is the outline of your structure and how it appears if we just focus on the borders of your body. There are multiple types of bodies and let’s find out which one are you!
Different body types and how to dress accordingly
Body type — Apple
If your body is heavy on the upper side when compared to your lower body then it can be said that you have an apple shape body. If your body is apple shape then you would have broad shoulders and bigger bust line. Most apple bodied women feel their weight gathers around the mid or stomach vicinity.
As the apple body type concentrates the weight in the midriff, the waistline looks minimal. So, the best way to dress for apple body type is to highlight the best parts of your body. Flaunt your legs by wearing dresses and try to wear V necklines which will create an elongated illusion of your torso. Check out Socialeras clothing, they have a great collection for apple shaped bodies.
Body type — Hourglass
The most perfect body shape is hourglass. It’s just not me but it is considered by everyone. Infact, anybody who has an hourglass body generally know they have it. This is the perfect balance of upper and lower body with a pretty defined waistline. So, if you have this godly figure then you should flaunt each and every bit of it.
As you have the perfect figure, you should dress accordingly. Wear things that highlight your each curve. Wear dresses that cinch at the waist, V necklines will show off your upper body and what not! Just flaunt it because very few lucky ones have it!
Body type — Pear
Pear shaped body is the one with weight concentrated at the lower part of your body. Kim Kardashian is the perfect example of a pear shaped body. It means you have bigger thighs and butt and slimmer upper body.
With a pear shaped body, you can easily create an illusion of an hourglass shape by enhancing your upper body. So, wear anything that broadens your shoulder or make them appear broad. Skinny jeans with loose tops can create such illusion. Crop Tops & V necks are also great in balancing your lower and upper body.
