How to shop for an Hourglass figure

Posted by Madeleine Clark on


I have decided to start with the Hourglass figure as this is my body shape so I can speak from personal experience. 

You want to keep these things in mind when shopping:

  1. Your bust is an asset

Look for these neck lines:

  • Sweetheart 
  • Scoop
  • V neck


2.  Avoid these like the plague!

  • Low rise jeans 
  • High necklines (not gonna lie I sometimes can get away with this it's bra dependent)
  • Boxy tunics and tops
  • Empire cut tops and dresses

    3. The best shape dresses for your shape are:
  • Wrap dress
  • Peplum
  • Bodycon
  • A line 
  • Knee & Midi length 
  • Fishtail 

          4. Jeans

  • High waist 
  • Boot cut
  • Straight leg

You are aiming to show off your natural curves, and flaunt your waist line. Waist belts really suit this shape wear one with a pencil skirt. 

Looking for some style inspiration? These celebrities have an Hourglass figure:

  • Holly Willoughby
  • Kim Kardashian 
  • Scarlet Johannsson
  • Kylie Jenner
  • Kelly Brooke
  • Rita Ora
