Apple Body: Balance, balance & balance

The apple body type is one of the more challenging ones to dress with a fuller middle and slim thighs and legs. Apple body characteristics are:

  • Larger Bust.
  • Broader Shoulders.
  • Narrower Hips
  • Less Defined Waist

The goal is to balance the top and the bottom to make your shoulders and waist appear slimmer and your torso look longer. When choosing clothes, you should focus attention away from your midsection of your body by wearing straight lines or semi fitted clothes.

DRESSES: Drop-waist dresses. Empire waist dresses. No skin tight dresses and clingy fabrics, to balance the body use the shape of dresses to create curves in the right places. Find the perfect dress for your Summer wardrobe.

TOPS & BLAZERS: Look for tops with narrow v-necks. and slight nipped in waists with a bit of flare at your hip. Tops with deep scoop, V-necks, shawl or coweled collar. Deep V-neck wrap style tops. Keep in mind a little flare below the waist helps add curves to your hips. Jackets with deep V-necklines, a nipped-in waist and flared bottom. Find the perfect top for your Summer wardrobe.

SKIRT & PANTS: Choose bottoms that will enhance your lower body. Pants with embellished or flap-style pockets. Boot cut or wide legs. Cargo pants. Full, A-line or ballerina skirts. Remember you have great legs, so feel free to play with length.

SWIM SUIT: simple, solid color halter tops.Dark, simple triangle tops with wider straps. Bottoms that cut straight across your hips. Bottoms with side ties. Ruffled or embellished bottoms. One-piece suits with cut-out sides, hip details and deep-v necks. ❤
