It’s tricky to find clothes that fit well for apple shaped women. More than finding the right styles and cuts, you would also want to opt for clothes that are flattering and make you look curvy and sexy. Apple shaped women are known for having slim and shapely shoulders, great legs, and a fuller midsection. The trick here is to camouflage your waist and tummy, and draw more attention to your arms and your legs. It will take certain cuts and types of clothes to effectively give you the impression of a curvy waistline.
The best tops for apple shaped women are those that not only fit very well, but also draw attention away from the midsection. Since your bustline is one of your best assets, don’t be afraid to emphasize this in good taste. Low cut tops and sexy necklines can be very flattering. Avoid tops that cling to your stomach and midsection. Opt for cuts that will hug your chest, but will have a more relaxed cut at the stomach and torso area. Wrap blouses are also a great option as these cleverly hide any unwanted bulk.
For an apple shape, you don’t have to hide anything from the waist down. Often, you will be blessed with average-sized legs and calves, which are great to show off. Wrap dresses are again most flattering for this body shape, as it will effectively camouflage flab. Go for darker colored dresses, and ones that don’t hug your torso. An empire cut would look great, as this will enhance your bust and hide your midsection. Shift dresses are also best on an apple shape, as these hug your top part and fall loosely at your sides. These cute dresses and cuts are also great for showing off your legs.
In choosing skirts, go for the one that has a slimming effect. Flared and A-line skirts are best on apple shaped body types, as this balances out your upper torso. Avoid pleated skirts, and in terms of material go for free-flowing ones like chiffon. Make sure you show off those great legs and calves by wearing short skirts or knee-length styles.
Veer away from pleated pants. Aside from being outdated these create unnecessary bulge. Flat front pants are best on you. For jeans, go for low rise ones to veer attention away from your torso and more towards your legs. Opt for lighter colored jeans, and make sure that they have back pockets so you will give the impression of a curvier behind. Flared pants or wide-legged pants balance out your heavy midsection. Don’t be afraid to wear Capri pants. These are great for showing off your calves.
The key to finding the most flattering swimwear is to hide your midsection, and enhance your bustline. The tankini is your best bet. Go for one with a padded top, and a more relaxed cut around the midsection. For the tankini bottom, go for a high cut one to put more emphasis on your legs.
