To Sew Clothes For Your Body Type
Have you ever been to your
favorite store looking for this awesome outfit
you saw your friend wear only to find it
doesn't look right on you? I think we've all
been there. The only thing is, sometimes we
just chalk it up to the fact that we are
thinner, larger, shorter, or taller than the
friend we saw wearing the same outfit. We even
go so far as to accept the fact that we will
never be as good looking as they are and buy
the outfit anyway! This needs to stop. Why
torture ourselves? We are all wonderfully and
beautifully made, even if we do have a few less
or extra curves than our friends. And there are
clothes that will look right on us, we just
have to know how to shop for our body style and
what will be the most flattering to our bodies.
After all, that awesome outfit looked so
awesome on your best pal because it was right
for her body type, not because she is better
looking than you are.
The first thing we all need
to do is stop wishing we looked like Angelina
Jolie. Famous actresses are beautiful, but they
have rigorous exercise schedules and strict
diet plans that the normal everyday house wife
would find difficult to keep up with. Instead
of being jealous, why don't we just love them
for who they are and love ourselves for who we
are? Plus, we have to remember that they have
clauses in their contracts that allows them to
only be shot from the angles that make them
look the best. The most attractive quality
about you to your spouse or significant other
will be your confidence. So shop for flattering
clothes for your body type, and go forth in
confidence knowing you look good!
Now that we have that out of
the way, we should take a good look in the
mirror and discover what shape we are. You can
find information on body shapes easily on the
internet and discover which one you are. You
could be an apple, hour glass, skittle, vase,
cornet, lollipop, column, bell, goblet, cello,
pear, or brick. That sounds like a lot of
shapes doesn't it? It is! It just reiterates
how different we all can be. Let's examine each
shape a little more closely and discuss what
types of clothing works well with each.
The apple shape is pretty
much round. Women tend to want to cover every
inch of their bodies when they are apples.
There is no need to! You can be the best you by
looking for skirts that fasten on the side and
flat at the front, small shaped wedge shoes,
and tailored, wide leg jeans and trousers.
Fitted jackets and lower (but not too low)
necklines can also help you redefine your look.
The hour glass figure can be a challenge to
dress as well. Since you are smaller in the
middle, you should wear fitted clothes that
clasp your curves and stretch your torso.
Pencil skirts will be just your style, but
avoid super high heeled shoes. You should try
shoes with rounded toes and peep toes.
If you're a skittle, don't
confuse it with the candy. That has nothing to
do with it. Traditionally you would be slimmer
at the top but then widen at the bottom.
Different from the pear, your issues hit at the
thighs, not at the bottom. You should choose
vertical patterns on your bottom half to help
slim the appearance of your thighs. Choose
coats and shirts with broad lapels. For shoes,
high chunky heels will work great for you.A
vase is similar to an hourglass but stretched
out a bit more. You often feel you have an over
sized chest and are uncomfortable in your own
skin. Choose wide scooped necklines for this
shape. A single button jacket will accent your
shape well. You can choose curvy shoes because
you are curvy!
A cornet is like the shape
of an ice cream cone. You want to choose
draping dresses, skinny jeans, and delicate
heels. They will accent your awesome calves and
ankles. The lollipop doesn't need any
explanation, just imagine a
lollipop! Evening gowns will be easy for you to
buy, but everyday clothes may be a challenge.
Choose dresses with strategic gathers to direct
eye to your waist. Bell bottom pants will make
you look less top heavy. For shoes, choose slim
heels to accent your slim legs.
Being shaped like a column
isn't too difficult to figure out. Curves are
scarce in your case. Get shirts with gathering
and pleating. Shoes should be balanced and
supportive. Fabrics like chiffon will soften
your shape as well.
Bell shapes need to create
broader shoulders with a funnel shaped coat. In
summer, you want to choose thigh skimming
kaftans. Cone heels will be great for your
look. If you look at your shape and think of a
crystal goblet, you may be a goblet shape. You
should wear deep wide v necks, skirts that are
fitted at the top, and nice heels to compliment
your shapely legs.
If you have broad shoulders,
a large chest, and a nice proportioned back
end, you may be a cello. Wide v necks will do
great for you, as well as skirts with sewn down
paneling. Shoes should support your upper leg
while making the most of your elegant ankles.
The pear shape widens at the buttocks and
continues on down. You should avoid side
pockets and go for flat front trousers.
Straight boots will make your legs look great,
and belting your coat or blouse will bring
attention to your waist.
If you feel you look more
masculine than feminine, you may be a brick
shape. If you are a brick shape, don't worry.
You too can look fabulous! Look for sequined
bands on the tops of bloses and shirts. Choose
skirts with asymmetric pleats to lift and
caress your buttocks. Rounded toe shoes will
look the best for you. No matter what shape you
are, you can look great. Just look for the
right clothes for you, and never settle for
clothes you feel frumpy or unattractive in.
