Dress for Your Shape: The Hourglass
With an ample chest, a narrow waist, and full (but not wide) hips, this shape, although evenly proportioned, can seem as if it’s all angles.
“Choose clothes that work and move with your natural curves, not against them,” says Raes.
Styles to avoid: Shapeless or boxy styles, like baby-doll dresses, tunics, and oversize cardigans.
This pair hits at the natural waistline, so it draws the eye to a thin middle.
“A wrap creates a diagonal movement across the body that is really forgiving,” says Kneen.
A close-fitting blouse with an open neckline flatters curves without exaggerating them.
