Tops for Hourglass Shaped Women

Select classic cuts and trendy accessories to look as fabulous as your less endowed sisters. Be careful not to overdo your clothes with ruffles, bows and other frills as your figure itself is enough to draw attention so keep everything simple and you’ll be smashing.

Main Traits of a Hourglass Shape Figure.

  1. Bust and hips nearly the same size.
  2. Well defined waist – 9″ or more smaller than bust.
  3. Full Bust.
  4. Shapely Legs.

Ideal tops for the hourglass shape are scooped or V necks as these will accentuate your bust. Wrap tops and tops with belts are also good for the hour glass women, the belt or tie will be a feature and style will fall on your slender waistline.

When looking at fabrics aim to buy sheer, soft, clingy fabrics and avoid stiff bulky fabrics and design as this will not be figure hugging. The vertical striped tops can be a good way of elongating your body especially if the garment is fitted or gathered in, this will give the effect of drawing the stripes into your narrow waist area.

On tops and blouses you will need to avoid high necklines like turtlenecks as they draw attention away from the waist.

Dresses and one piece outfits are a good choice for the hour glass woman, fitted ones are ideal and they should fit your bust most of all as well as your hips and your behind.

Never wear overly dramatic or ultra bling big belts, batwing sleeves, smocks, flat lace-up shoes or other similar items.
