Clothes to Boost Your Body Type

Jul 17, 2012 1:26pm

All women know that whatever your body type, clothes can be draped and shaped to enhance it. But the trick is finding the best styles to flatter your figure, no matter your shape.

Amy Goodman, author of “Wear This, Toss That!” offers tricks to enhance your assets and hide those problem areas. The key is pairing the right pieces in a way that works. All these outfits cost  less than $100.

Curvy Backside:

Every woman wants to flatter her backside without making it look bigger. To downplay a curvy backside, wear a flowy top that grazes your bottom. Pair it with a fitted pair of pants for a tailored look. These pieces come from Loft.

Large Bust:

If you have a large bust, you always want to avoid adding more weight to that area. Stay away from ruffles and neck-tie tops. Find the smallest part of your waist to define it. Both items are from H&M.
