Ever wonder how to shop for clothes that are the best fit for you? Dressing for your body type means wearing clothes that flatter your natural shape and highlight your best features. Here are some general tips to help you dress for your body type:

Hourglass: If you have an hourglass figure, your goal is to balance your proportions by highlighting your waist. Opt for clothing that cinches at the waist and skirts that are fitted, not too tight or too loose. Here's an idea with one of our modest dresses from our Spring Collection.

Apple: If you have an apple shape, you want to draw attention away from your midsection. Opt for A-line skirts and dresses, and tops that drape over your belly. V-neck tops and necklaces can also help elongate the torso. This Bri Maxi Dress could be a good one because of the empire waist.

Pear: If you have a pear shape, your goal is to balance your proportions and draw attention to your upper body. Opt for tops with sleeves and necklines that draw the eye up, and avoid baggy or boxy tops. A-line skirts and dresses can also help balance your proportions.

Straight: If you have a straight body shape, your goal is to add curves and definition to your silhouette. Opt for clothing that cinches at the waist, such as belted dresses and skirts, and tops with ruffles or pleats.

Petite: If you're petite, your goal is to elongate your body and create the illusion of height. Opt for vertical stripes, high-waisted pants, and monochromatic outfits. Avoid tops and dresses with a lot of volume, as they can overwhelm your frame.

Remember, these are general tips and everyone's body is unique. These body types apply to plus and regular size frames. Ultimately, the most important thing is to wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident.
