The Ultimate Guide To Dressing Slimmer: Hourglass Shape

Stop obsessing over those pesky holiday pounds and start wearing clothes that help you to look your best. Over the next few days, we’ll show you how to find the most flattering pieces for your figure based on your body shape.

Hourglass shaped women are similar to the letter “X” with shoulders that are evenly proportioned with hips and a narrower waist. Flatter your figure with body skimming pieces that highlight your waist.

Look for shape skimming pieces that show off your waist and work with your natural curves.

Keep your top and bottom in proportion to enhance your natural symmetry.

Mid-rise pants and skirts are your best choice. High rises will make hips look bigger, while low rise cuts can create a muffin top.

Slim fitting V-neck tops flatter curves without exaggerating them.

Pencil skirts accentuate the waist while skimming over hips, a great choice for hourglass figures.

Wear cardigans or jackets that graze hips and elongate a curvy figure.
