Are you on a crazy weight loss journey? Do you have a hard time finding the proper clothing to compliment your shape? Are you top heavy with large breasts or bottom heavy with voluptuous hips?

No worries!

There are some tricks and tips to enhance and flatter your figure as you’re transitioning.

Figure #1 The Apple (mid section heavy)

1. Wrap tops, deep V and scoop necks

They give the illusion of a smaller waist and draw the eyes vertically downward.

2. Straight-legged and high-waisted pants

Straight-legged pants help properly proportion your upper half with your lower half, and the high waist gives a girdle effect helping to flatten and smooth out your tummy.

 Whatever you do AVOID: 

-A lines

-Overly shapeless blouses

-Busy patterns and details

Figure #2 Pear Shape (smaller on top, heavier on the bottom)

1. Dark-colored pants,  front seams,  fluted skirts, low-waisted thick waistbands

These type of pants have a slendering effect and minimize the look of your bottom.


2. Slight A-lines, tunics, and 3/4 length jackets

These help to proportion the shape of your body and draw attention from the difference in your top and your bottom.

Whatever you do AVOID: 

-Faded jeans

-Overly tight tops
