Tips On How To Dress Your Plus Size Apple Body Shape
If your a Sweet and Sexy Apple Shape Diva, you gain weight in your tummy. You may have always been this shape, or you may have grown into it once peri-menopause hit. When looking for clothes for Apple Shaped Bodies, A womens goal should be to hide her round tummy & show off her nice legs. If you have a Plus Size apple shaped body, then you’re "top heavy",meaning you have a wide torso, broad shoulders, and a full bust. You also tend to have thinner arms, legs, and hips which your weight gain tends to be in your waistline. Being Plus Size and having a apple shaped body is nothing to be ashamed of, actually you should be proud of your full figure and flaunt it as much as possible. But to show off what you've got, you need to dress appropriately.
To dress your apple shaped body, you'll want to take attention away from your middle, since its already full. Your favorite neckline is going to be a V-neck or deep V-neck top and Tops that highlight your body at the slimmest point which is often just underneath your bust, at the smallest part of your torso, just under the bust (classically referred to as the empire waist). Since a lot of attention is going to the top part of your body, get yourself a good fitting bra.. You can create a new waistline by choosing clothing with a waistband, elastic, belt, tie, etc.,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.
Knitwear and Jackets are also some nice pieces to wear! We love to layer our style anytime of the year and for the Apple body shape, longer styles like waterfall cardigans are not just super cozy, but are also a great way of skimming over your mid-section. Look for flowy coats like trench and dusters that have a single breasted front. Blazers, cropped styles and jackets that fall at the waist can make you look boxy and cut you in half.
A classic Tunic is also a go-to for lots of Plus Size women who are Apple Shaped because of the longer length of the style skimming over their mid-section
I have reached the last of the popular Plus Size apple shaped body pieces 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! 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. Also ladies, don't be afraid to rock a nice pair of Plus Size Leggings every so often. So if your dressing your Leggings with a nice Plus Size Oversized Top, or even a V-Neck Top with a Warm Cardigan (considering its fall or winter) this is also a nice set that’ll take away from your mid-section and focus more on your outfit.
