By understanding what styles work best for your body shape, you can always look your best. Apple body shapes have an undefined, often thick waist. Therefore if you have this body type, you should try to disguise your midsection and instead put the emphasis on your assets — full breasts and great legs.
Casual dresses for apples
Fashion expert and TV personality Jeannie Mai offers these do’s and don’ts for apple shaped women.
- Do stick to solids or graphic (not round) patterns.
- Do try fabrics with a little, not a lot, of stretch.
- Don’t wear dresses with tiered skirts.
The maxi dress is a fabulous choice for apple body shapes. A shorter dress with an empire waist and a slightly flared skirt will also help balance out your body and hide figure flaws. If you use a belt, wear it slung low and loose on your hips to slenderize and elongate the look of your torso.
Jennifer Hudson, Oprah Winfrey, Chandra Wilson, Rosie O’Donnell, Elizabeth Hurley and Catherine Zeta-Jones all have apple body shapes.
