[#NoBODYLeftBehind: A Series on Body Types] THE APPLE

[MD] #NoBODY Blog Banners (6).png

Hey y'all! I'm continuing the series on body types here for the next couple of days.  Hopefully, you're finding this information helpful in determining your shape and the best clothing for you. Let's jump right into today's shape:  

Though a lot of us (read: y'all) like apples (I hate apples except apple juice lol), women who are apple-shaped don't always feel liked.  Women who are apple-shaped tend to carry their plushness in the middle.  But it's cool. I promise it is.  Not sure if you're an apple? Here you go:

  • You have a larger bust and/or tummy.

  • You have narrow hips.

  • Your ribs and back may be broad.

The goal in dressing ANY body type is balance.  You basically want to draw the attention away from your midsection and put the focus on your greatest assets. Here are some do's and don'ts:

  • DO wear monochromatic looks.

  • DON'T wear tight clothing around the torso.

  • DO wear empire tops and dresses.

  • DO belt your waist at the smallest point.

  • DO wear shorter skirts to show off your legs and look taller.

  • DO wear bootcut pants to create balance.

That's all I have.  I also included a downloadable infographic below that outlines the pear shape and what clothes look best on you.  If this is your body type, save this image to your phone and use it as a shopping guide; you'll immediately see the difference in your appearance. 

The #NoBODYLeftBehind series is just starting. There are only 2 more common feminine shapes left! I'll go over them in the next two days. Leave your comments, questions or concerns in the box below and I'll be sure to respond.  If you found this information helpful, feel free to share on social media too! XO, Kendra
