How to dress an Apple Body Shape.
Have your recognized the characteristics of your apple body shape?
If you have you might have already established them, full breasts & a wide back, slim arms, slim hips, wide shoulders, and when you gain weight in it is in the center zone of your body. To summarize it, your upper body is heavier than your lower body
A-line Cut Dresses (Straight A-Line)
A-Line Dresses are designed to be narrow at the waist and to widen lower towards the hip. This cut is an excellent way to conceal the tummy whilst giving proportion to the hips. The eyes will naturally be drawn to the top where it starts, and the bottom where it ends, bringing the attention to your neckline and legs.
Keep it straight, plain & simple.
A good visual trick to decrease the focus on your belly would be to choose dresses with a plain cut/pattern from top to bottom. Having a drape/ruching/pleats/wrap on the dress would draw attention to the belly and that is the look you are trying to avoid. Avoid wearing belts as they draw a lot of attention to the middle of the body. If you like a dress that comes with a tie around belt, don’t shy away from it, just tie the belt very loosely. Avoid these two things and you’re good to go!
Block Color Dresses
Block Color Dresses, are dresses which use solid colors to your advantage by placing them strategically around your body. Since black is slimming, incorporating black & bright colors, make your waist look slimmer than it is. Look for dresses that have solid sides of black with a different color in the middle that continues all the way from the top of the dress down to the bottom.
If you can’t see it, it doesn’t exist, so why not hide it?
