How can I dress to flatter my body type?

Dress to flatter your body typeWhen you know what to wear to look your best, you feel your best too! Here are the four main body types and the clothing choices that are most flattering for each:

Body Types

Circle (bigger around the middle) – look for fashions that are loose around the midsection, yet snug in other places, like tunics and slim-fit pants. Stay away from high-wasted styles and belts.

Triangle, otherwise known as pear, (bigger on the bottom) – avoid oversized sweaters, skinny jeans, and clingy skirts. Wide leg pants, tailored jackets, and A-line skirts are best.

Hourglass (proportionately curvy) – Find pieces that move with your natural curves, such as wrap dresses, v-neck tops, and pencil skirts. Shapeless baby doll dresses and oversized sweaters are a no-no.

Rectangle (the same up and down) – Look for fashions that fit snugly around the middle. Flared pants and skirts with a fitted jacket will look great on you!

Of course, if there are things about your body that you just don’t feel good about no matter what you’re wearing, schedule a consultation with Dr. Lisa J. Learn to discuss procedures like liposuction, breast augmentations or reductions, tummy tucks, and more. Just call us in Fort Lauderdale, FL at (954) 380-8411.
