Tips For Dressing Your Plus Size Apple Shaped Body


If your a Plus Size Woman With A Sweet and Sexy Apple Shape, you gain weight in your tummy. You may have always been this shape, or you may have grown into it once peri-menopause hit. A women with an apple shaped body goal should be to hide her round tummy & show off her nice legs. If you have a apple shaped body, then your “top heavy,” meaning you have a wide torso, broad shoulders, and a full bust.They also tend to have thinner arms, legs, and hips which they gain weight at their waistline. Having a apple shaped body is nothing to be ashamed of, actually you should be proud of your full figure in flaunt it as much as possible. 

To dress your apple shaped body, you’ll want to take attention away from your middle, since its already full. First of all, since a lot of attention is going to the top part of your body, get yourself a good fitting bra. Tops that highlight your body at the slimmest point which is often just underneath your bust. They should have enough space for your belly but not be too wide. Also try looking for tops with thicker texture that don’t cling so much. Tops should cover the whole belly area and end just below the hip bone. Also look for tops that draw attention to your arms with i.e flares, a flit or embroidery will draw attention from your belly.


In order to balance your top heavy silhouette, choose flared and wide leg jeans and pants. However, do not exaggerate! You do not want to hide those gorgeous legs! Boot cut pants will also look great on your apple shape.

Avoid skinny jeans and fitted pants that will accentuate your thin legs and consequently make your top part look heavier. The only way you can wear them is with a pair of knee high boots that will add volume.

Keep in mind that you never add bulk  to your hips or hide your lower body in baggy pants! 

Go for short dresses and skirts that will show off your legs. The ideal length is half thigh. If the hem reaches the knee it is still acceptable, but avoid maxi skirts that will have you looking larger and shapeless. A low waist skirt is better than a high waist one, which can cause some problems in the area of the belly. Go for a flared skirt or an a-line one that will have your waist looking smaller!

I have reached the last of the popular apple shaped body that I am going to cover. This type of body is probably the most difficult shape to dress but most definitely not an unattractive one! In fact some of the most gorgeous and famous celebs have it, such as Jennifer Hudson, Jessica Simpson, the one in only Queen Latifah and many more.  

Because, as I have mentioned at the beginning, this is a difficult body shape to dress, all the tips that I have given you may be a bit overwhelming at first sight. However the main thing to keep in mind if you are apple shaped is to check that what you are wearing focuses the attention on the shoulders, neckline, and the legs taking it away from your waistline and midsection.
