"Body Shape... the Perfect Fit" [Hourglass]




Hey everyone, the last time we posted about body shapes we realized we needed to know more about our body shape. We started out with the Straight Body Type and as promised, we will now discuss the Hourglass Body Type



Hourglass body type has a shapely chest (boobylicious) and bottom that is almost of equal size and a defined waist.  Just think of the old adage that women use to say when describing their shape: 36-24-36.




As an Hourglass body type your assets are your rounded bottom and shapely legs.  So, if you’re an hourglass shape, remember two things:  one… I need to accentuate my waist and two… I need to show off my shapely legs.


Ok, now what is the best clothing to buy?


Your tops should be:

  • Form-fitting shirts 
  • Tailored Shirts
  • Shirts with banding at the waist, V-neck, U-shape
  • Wide Belts 
  •  Bra with support and control

Your bottom should be:

  • High-waist pants and skirts
  • Pencil skirts
  • Boot cut and straight leg pants
  • Skinny jeans and Jeans with flap pockets
  • Can wear any length dress


Your dress should be:


Your Jackets should be:



Extra Tips:

  • Avoid the straight lines style, it will cover up your curves and make you appear heavy.
  • To show off your curves try using proportions by adding a bit of volume to your upper and lower body.

  5. I'm and hourglass, and find your tips for dressing to be true. I always have to define my waist and baggy clothes never look right one me.

    1. hmm.. you know, you can try proportions, you can wear a form fitting bottom & a baggy top. you can do it in reverse but you have to be careful with the baggy bottom it can make you look bigger.
