Hourglass Body Shape

If you have an hourglass body shape, your shoulders and your hips are the same width and your waist is significantly smaller in proportion to both your shoulders and hips. To find out for sure, visit our body shape calculator.

You may find it difficult to find the perfect fit for your distinctive curves. When dressing your body shape the goal for you is to have all your clothing fit like a glove! Your beautiful body doesn’t need much additives. Adding too much to any one area of your body will throw off your proportions.

 

 

TOPS, BLAZERS AND COATS

What to Look For:

  • V necklines
  • Items fitted and tailored to your body

What to Avoid:

  • Any detailing that adds more bulk to your shoulders
  • Baggy tops that don’t define your waist
  • Boxy jackets
  • Tops that hit the hips can give your hips a wider appearance

SKIRTS AND PANTS

When you buy pants, buy them to fit your hips and thighs and get the waist taken in.

What to Look for:

  • Mid rise pants
  • Straight leg and boot cut
  • Vertical Stripes are good
  • Pencil and high waisted skirts that taper inward

What to Avoid:

  • Too many pleats, pockets, details and any extra bulk around your hips
  • Distressed hips

DRESSES

No curve left untouched! Choose anything that cling cling clings!! Wrap dresses are my favorite for hourglasses!

Let your body do all the talking! No additives just a nice dress that fits like a body suit. Plunging and v necklines are great, but avoid extra bulk around the hips. Va Va Voom!!
