-You need to balance your top half with your lower half by wearing clothes that make your shoulders look broader.
-Balance the top with your fuller bottom half. Layering on your top half creates visual interest and draws the eye upwards. Wear volume, clutter, pattern, and color on your top half, so hips and thighs will seem narrower.
-Avoid details, patterns, pockets on your thigh and hip area and belts on your hips.
-Choose empire or wrap dresses; separates work better.
-Keep detailing above the waist. Be aware of high-cut styles that finish at your widest point. Separates work well, but keep the bottom simple and in one color.
-On your bottom half you need to wear clothes that make your hips look broader.
-Keep details, fuss, anything that creates volume to your lower half and keeps your top half clean and uncluttered.
-Avoid necklines that make you broader on top e.g. boat or Bardot, big straps, halter neck tops, big shawl collars.
-Simple straight lines, shifts, A-lines are even better, full or tiered skirts, pleats or patterns or other details.
-Square and simple delicate tube lines work well, as do hip details.
-Avoid any styles and shapes that hide your body shape, they will add extra volume to your waist.
-Dresses either shaped or belted, short or long will work.
-No restrictions in bikinis, but keep in mind that the best styles are the ones that underline your shape and feminine curves.
-Bring attention to your shoulder and neckline, wear designs that bring the eye to the center by wearing wider and lower necklines.
-Wrap or bias-cut shift dress, empire line dress that goes in under the bust.
-Avoid hemlines shorter than knees.
-You need to create the illusion of a waist.
-Avoid details at the waist such as noticeable waistband; high-waist trousers; belted jackets and coats at the front.
-Opt for lower, wider necklines such as jewels, scoop boat necklines - this looks even better with details such as embellishments around your décolletage.
-Kaftans with splits at waist, simple straight lines, empire line, shift dresses.
-Look for swimsuits that have a form fitting waist and a soft cup bra. Two pieces do just that and make rectangle body shapes appear a little curvier.
-Choose solid bold colours and plunging necklines to make the bust and bottom stand out.
