Apple Shape Body

Apple shaped body is characterized by round and fuller shoulders, larger bust with fuller middle portion, along with curvy legs. Thus you have to highlight the legs and also bring attention to the face. You would have a heavier upper body in comparison to the lower part of the body. Firstly make sure you are wearing the right size of bra or the bra isn’t worn out. You can try a Knix bra and see if it suits you right. A-line dresses, flowy tops towards the lower portion or jackets will suit the best. Monochrome or deeper colors accentuate the features and you can create a good balance with flared jeans or pants. Try and avoid body-hugging, skinny jeans or upper waist belt. Jennifer Hudson and Elizabeth Hurley have apple shaped body.

Pear Shape Body

This is also one of the best features of a curvy shape. You have to bring a balance between narrow shoulder and broad hips by dressing correctly. Try the wide legged pants, A-line clothes and skinny jeans or skirt will suit this pear-shaped body perfectly. You can also try boat neck tops and gowns.

To add proper definition to the hips wear straight cut jeans or pants and dress that are naturally in an inverted V shape. Never layer the upper body with jackets and scarves.
