Women that have an apple body shape have a heavy top. The torso is wide, shoulders are broad and bust is full, just as the upper back and the waist. Most of the women with this body type have thinner legs, hips and arms. They will normally gain weight around the waistline. In the event that you have an apple body shape, you have to be really proud of the figure that you have since you can easily flaunt it. The trick, as with all body types out there is to showcase your assets while you hide your flaws.
Do You Have An Apple Body Shape?
This is the first question you have to ask yourself. Contrary to what you may think, not all women that think they are apple shaped are actually apple shaped. With this in mind, look at the following characteristics. Remember that it is the predominance that dictates the shape. You may have some of the body shape characteristics but not all of them.
- Wide torso
- Undefined waist
- Flat bottom
- Thin legs and arms
- Broad shoulders
- Average to full bust
- Narrower hips than the bust
Draw Attention From The Middle Of The Body
In order to dress your apple shape, you have to start by drawing attention away from the middle area as it is full. This means that you have to avoid low pants or shorts, fabric length that will cot above the middle and high cut shirts. Distract people from the middle and direct the attention towards another part of the body. Waistline definition can easily be created.
Try to avoid outfits that have a standout pattern in your belly area. That draws too much attention to the waist. Never wear thick belts and avoid the clingy dresses or shirts.
Put An Emphasis On The Bust
The apple body shape woman has a bust that has to be highlighted. That will emphasize the amazing feature and take away all the unwanted attention from the features that are not so amazing. This basically means that you want to wear a v-neck, an A-line dress or plunging necklines.
Dresses or shirts that will flow from the area under the bust while expanding at your waist are perfect. Make sure that you never look too top-heavy. Elaborate tops or necklaces that have ornate patterns near your neck are not necessary.
Showing Off The Legs
Your legs are also an asset, one that is usually forgotten by the apple shaped woman. It does not matter if you are short or tall. Showing off the legs helps you much more than you would imagine. Short-shorts and high heels work wonders in balancing the bottom half of the body. Do not wear big heavy boots, skinny jeans or leggings.
