The hourglass shape is know for its smaller defined waist and balanced shoulder to hip width. Since hourglasses are usually the same width around their upper and lower body this can make for easier styling.

1.  Go for pieces that ‘Skim’ your body not ‘Cling’ to your body

2. wear baggy clothes around your upper body, you can look bulky – the more fitted, the better

3.  V-Neck and scoop neck tops are your best friends

4. Don’t over do the fabric – If you are shorter don’t cover too much of the upper body

5.  Pencil skirts are your best friends for ultimate curves show off and they go with everything

6.  A-line everything for you – This cut is so gorgeous for curves

Inverted Triangle Body Shape

This particular body shape is where the shoulders and upper body are proportionally larger than the lower body. Your shoulders tend to be broad and your hips and waist have a slim, column shape.

Avoid: Try to steer clear of halter neck and off-the-shoulder dresses as they will draw attention to your wider shoulders and lots of detail around the neckline won’t help either.

Look For: V-neck wedding dresses are perfect for inverted triangle body shapes. Opt for thick straps or sleeves to make the shoulders more subtle. To balance out the shape, look for a wedding dress with lots of detail and or an all over lace pattern as it will veer the eye downwards instead of concentrating on your broader upper half.

Best Styles: V-neck wedding dresses, sheath wedding dresses, embellished dresses.
