Reply To: What body type are you? How do you dress for your body type?
I believe the way best way you dress for your body shape is by “proportioning” it. You just have to learn your shape and the best way for YOU to proportion it with clothing. For everybody, proportioning means highlighting some areas and lowlighting some. Does that make sense? Would you agree?
I can relate to “ChristianGirlForever”. I see myself as having a “pear” or “triangle” body shape. I like to wear high-waisted shorts that cover my tummy and hips. I prefer for those shorts to cover my inner thighs. I like to wear my pair of khaki drawstring shorts, as they skim over the thigh area rather than emphasize it. I’ve learned for my shape that it’s good to highlight the shoulder area with color, fabric designs, and jewelery. For bottoms it’s best to keep simpler and darker. In this way, I can balance my proportions.
Advice for the reader, as described in my first paragraph, determine what your body shape is and learn to proportion it in the best way for you.
