Know Your Body Type? Find Out the Best Clothing to Compliment YOU!

Hey Ladies!

After having a few curvy conversations with my girls, I have decided to write a post on identifying your body shape and finding clothes that will compliment you. WE ARE ALL SHAPED DIFFERENTLY & BEAUTIFULLY. Some of us are top-heavy,  bottom heavy, a little bit of both, or none of the above! We have all…well I know I have struggled at some point with clothes that did not compliment me well!

After a few years of trial and error, and evolving my style,  I realized  how important it is to feel good in the clothes that you wear while looking great at the same time! If your’e not giving yourself a double-take every time you pass a mirror…then maybe it’s time for a little WARDROBE CHANGE! lol

No worries!

Shape Your Shop has a great body shape guide that will help you identify your body type.


Does this help? Maybe the diagram below will…


Are you a Neat Hourglass?

If you identify yourself as a neat hourglass,you are evened out pretty well. Here are a few items that you could consider…

Lace Top(Forever 21) | Soft Woven Drawstring Pants (Forever 21)

 Dress (Forever 21)

Are you a Full Hourglass?

For this body type, you are thicker in the lower areas of your body like your hips and thighs, and you have a small waist. Often times it is hard to find jeans that can fit your hips,thighs, and your smaller waist at the same time. Here are a few items that you should consider…

High-Waist Skinny Jeans(Forever 21+) | Denim Jeans (Lane Bryant)

Faded Button Down Shirt (Forever 21) | Jacket (Forever 21+) | Crochet Top (Forever 21+)

Are you an Apple?

I know a few of my girls struggle with their apple body-type because the stomach and the TA-TA’S are the areas that do not get along with certain jeans, tops, or dresses.  If you identify yourself as an apple, here are a few items that you should consider…

High-Waist Extra Comfort Jeans(Forever 21+) | Black High-Waist Skinny Jeans (Forever 21+) | Kimono (Forever 21+)

Loose Cotton Top (Forever 21+) | Black/White Blouse (Forever 21+) | Peplum Top (Forever 21+) Blue Dress (Forever 21+)

Are you a Pear?

With this body type you are more bottom-heavy than anything else! If you identify yourself as a pear, here are a few items that you should consider…

Truly You Bandeau Jumpsuit

Skater Skirt (Forever 21+) | Black Dress (Forever 21+) | Two-Piece Outfit (Forever 21+ pencil skirt and top)

Jumpsuit (Forever 21+) | Blue Bandeau Jumpsuit (Asos+)

Are you an Inverted Triangle?

If you are this body type, you are the exact opposite of the pear. You are top-heavy. Here are a few items that you should consider…

Are you a Lean Column?

If you identify with this body type, here are a few items that you should consider…

You can always add a belt to your outfit at your mid-section, or underneath your bust to add a waistline, or to simply spice up the outfit!
Longer blazers go well with this body type!
