Pear body or also known as triangular: This stands out for having the hips wider than the shoulders. To make it visually more aesthetic, we must compensate for the volumes, for that we will have to highlight the upper part and reduce or hide the lower part, which is our prominent hips.

How can we achieve it?

Simple, use striking garments on the top such as prints, bright colors, rhinestones, fringes, ruffles and V-shaped necklines. We can also structure the shoulders with shoulder pads or puffed sleeves.

All this will make the shoulder which is usually smaller than our hips compensate and achieves a much more balanced silhouette.

Inverted triangle body: This type of body is the opposite of the previous one, which is the pear-shaped body. This one stands out by having the shoulders wider than the hips, so what we need to do to make it look more balanced is to take the focus off the top.

How can we do it?

The garments of our upper part have to be less flashy, more basic, using monochromatic colors, preferably neutral or dark, and avoid prints and very prominent necklines as much as possible.

In this type of body, we must focus our attention on the legs using skirts and pants with volume, pockets, pleats and more rigid fabrics.

HOURGLASS SILHOUETTE

Hourglass body: This type of body has very marked curves since it has a very thin waist and proportionate shoulders and hips.

In this case, to get the most out of them, what we must do is continue to enhance that waist with garments that highlight it, fitted outfits (but always in your size), high-waisted garments and a total look in one color.

Avoid very loose clothing since we can go from an hourglass body to an oval body.

Rectangular body: This is recognized by having the shoulders, waist and hips aligned.

What we must do for those of us who have this type of body is to look for and create curves and for that, we must mark our waist with a belt or bow, high-waisted bottoms, and voluminous skirts with prints that we will compensate with an upper part where the shoulders stand out.

OVAL SILHOUETTE

Oval / Apple body: They do not necessarily have to be voluminous bodies, but they can be bodies with prominent bellies, fewer buttocks and thin legs.

In this case, we will do as in the other bodies that we have commented and it is to seek to compensate the upper and lower part in addition to seeking to reduce the abdomen area.

The best clothes to achieve this will be clothes with small prints and loose fabrics. We will enhance our legs with skirts with volume, prints, or ruffles. We can also do it using shorts in bright colors and with some lace detail.

For dresses, it is best to use dresses with an empire line to give volume in the fall and hide the abdomen.
