There  are  so many trends out there that your body type and preferences should be playing a bigger part in what you wear.

We all have issues with our body but it should not hinder our choices when it comes to clothes.

So we have create this simple guide about three problem areas and what not to wear to create the illusion of the body you want endless trips to the gym nor tight undergarments.

Pear shaped

I am unfortunate to have this shape but I have identified some clothing items that just will not work for your benefit. Here are  three bottoms to due without:

Tapered pants
I love separates and a good pant is a must have this season (pants guide pending ). Unfortunately not all pants look good on everyone.  Stay away from these pants that can make you look extra heavy in the thigh area and go for wide leg or bootcut.

Pencil skirt

This type of skirt can be difficult to walk in if the bottom is too narrow. Looks that curve at the waist and drop straight at the legs should be more suitable.

Shorts

There is such a thing as “short” shorts. Stay away from cuts  that show too much cheek or fall mid thigh. Shorts just above the knee are perfect if fit is tight, but loose fitting styles can fall mid thigh without looking tight.

hourglass

So you have more on top you say. So shirts are more your problem area. Do not be afraid to go up one size for better fit and tailor other aspects of the garment (like sleeves to improve fit). Here are some things to avoid:

Empire waist

Nothing makes breast stand out more and increase the chance of looking top heavy then this cut. Always toted to plus size vixens as the go to silhouette  (it’s not), this shape gives the rest of your body no shape. Instead go for a top or dress that has side seams only and a little stretch. It will outline all the best parts of your figure.

Buttoned blouse

This type of shirt is said to be a staple but gapping between buttons can be a problem. If you can afford to go a size larger then do. Either roll up sleeves or have them tailored for a better fit. An alternative is to pair with a tank top and leave open at problem areas.

Square/rectangle

So you have minimal curves? No worries. Clothes can create the curves. Sheath dresses are your enemy so opt for form fitting cocktail. Pants should be tapered and try high waisted or at waist looks. Pencil skirts are a must but do not go tight on top and hem should extend pass mid thigh. Add belts to waist for flowy blouses which are making a statement this spring.

Dresses that flair are best. Tight fitting anything will add extra padding to the middle. Also, play with prints like floral and plaid.
