Bigger on the top- busty or broad shoulders; usually have to size up on the top in which the shoulders and bust are larger than your hips, with the shoulders being the widest. Celebrity Example Jill Scott.
Recommended clothing to try: jackets with flared bottom and defined waste that are fitted at the top, as they create an illusion for larger hips to balance your broader shoulders.
You have broad and rounded shoulders. You have full breasts. Waistline is not defined. Celebrity example body type Melissa McCarthy.
Avoid- leggings, super tight skinny jeans, things that make you look shorter, wear a pant that goes over the shoe, any top or jacket that’s going to make you look stuffed in, avoid a buttoned three button blazer, hiding or camouflaging your middle, tube dress
Go To: Use trouser cut jeans and trousers, flare leg, single button blazer, use belts (wide or narrow- not too narrow for plus sizes), fake a waist, fake an hour glass- a line skirt, deep v-neck, prints hide trouble areas, use heels to elongate, add a clutch for visual interest, go with a higher rise pant
Rectangle body shape, in which shoulders and hips are about equal, with a waste which is almost as wide, so the waistline is not well defined. The more accentuated your shoulders and hips the smaller your waist looks. Clothing to consider: skirts that balance your upper body, like ones with ruffles, bows, pockets and other embellishments that visually increase volume in your lower body. Celebrities: Anne Hathaway & Queen Latifah
A body type with characteristically wider hips than shoulders and narrow waist. Try dressing with pieces that are fitted at the top, but go wider at the bottom, like a fit-and-flare dress, to showcase your narrow shoulders, and transition nicely to the wider hips. Use belts to showcase your narrow waistline. Celebrity Beyonce.
You have large breasts and wide hips. Your shoulders and hips are proportionately balanced. Waist is well-defined. When choosing your clothing, aim to define the waist and lengthen the legs, but basically dress in clothes that follow the curves of the body instead of hiding them. Avoid pieces without a defined waistline. Celebrity Ashley Graham.
