The Secrets to Dressing for your Body Shape ;)

The Secrets to Dressing for your Body Shape ;) image

Being in the industry that I've been in for most of my life, I found that not only as a model, but in general life,  there’s a lot of pressure on women to be thin, young and beautiful. 

But, it really doesn’t matter whether you’re a 6 or a size 16. The real secret to dressing well, is understanding your best features of your beautiful body shape & knowing how to show off these features so that you look & feel amazing. Most importantly , I've always found that what you feel on the inside radiates on the outside.. So when you dress well and suited to your body shape, you'll feel confident and it will show! :)

Your body shape is RULER if:

1. Your hips, bust and waist look to be about the same in width.

2. Your waist doesn't have a definite dip, it usually shapes straight up and down with your hips..

3. This means you have a similar body type to the likes of Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson! Shoo! :)

Feminine dresses & skirts really suit your gorgeous frame!


You have a PEAR body shape if:

1. You have fairly narrow shoulders and your but fits in line with them.

2. Your waistline is lovely and slim

3. Your hips and butt are abit wider in proportion to your bust and shoulders.

4.Your celebrity body shape inspiration are the likes of JLo and Rihanna

Look for styles which really highlight your tiny waist. Like the jumpsuit seen in the image below with JLo

2. Your waist is straight with your bust and shoulders wider than your hips.

2. Your bust and hips are about the same width.

3. You have a very glamorous , curvaceous, feminine shape.
