Flaunt Your Curves
Clothes are more than just pieces of fabric. They are a way of expressing our personality and our feelings. Don't fall prey to dressing for an unflattering trend - dress for your shape...

If you're an apple shape, you're the most rounded of all the body shapes. Your hot points are your slender yet shapely legs. You are also likely to be in possession of a voluptuous and completely natural chest, which you will have for the rest of your days. Apple figures tend to have quite chunky arms, but usually very slim wrists. If you have an apple shaped figure you usually gain weight around your tummy, and you don't have much of a waist.
That last bit might not sound so good, but there are many ways to create a waist. For example:
• Wear tailored jackets and coats that nip in at the waist.
Apple figures should wear V-Necks or wraparound tops to break up the torso and make the most of cleavage. You can also wear pencil skirts to show off your shapely legs.
Avoid wide-leg jeans. They make your legs look bigger and your body appear top AND bottom heavy. Instead, wear straight or boot-cut jeans to flatter the legs most.
To avoid the dreaded "muffin top", wear mid-rise or even high-rise jeans to give the illusion of a slimmer silhouette.
Most importantly, apple figures should avoid clingy tops, because they may ride up - or choose clingy tops that are long in the torso.
Also avoid polo necks. They make you look top heavy. You want to emphasise those curves, not add extra bulk.
