What’s your shape & how to dress it.

We believe in trying anything and everything to find what does and doesn’t work for you personally and that anyone can wear anything that makes them feel great.

However, if your’re not sure where to start you can use this guide to help select styles that are best suited to your shape.  It’s all about using styles that create the illusion and a well balanced silhouette.  If one part of your body is narrow and another wide, then visually or actually widening the narrowest area can provide balance and restore visual proportion.

Body Shape Guide

If you are a bottom-heavy beauty and are bigger around the hips, bottom or thighs than you are up top, like the majority of women, you are a Pear!  You’ve probably also got a fairly flat stomach you lucky thing.  Work that womanly figure by adding more shape and structure above the waist.

Bring out your best:

Balance out your curvy bottom half with details around your shoulder and top half, bold bright tops or tops with large collars, lapels or sleeves and accessories.  Wear darker colours in skirts and pants, and slightly tapered trousers.

Best to avoid:

Tube, pencil and fishtail skirts, especially tight-fitting ones will emphasise your hips and behind.

Body Shape Guide

Sassy heart-shaped ladies have a figure that’s bigger up top than on their bottom half because of broad shoulders and/or big boobs in relation to their waist and hips.  Broad shoulders or bigger boobs can make you look top heavy, but there are a few simple ways to soften your shape!

Bring out your best:

Fuller skirts, wide leg trousers, bold textures and horizontal stripes worn below the waist will balance out your bodyshape beautifully.  Don’t be afraid of bright colour on your bottom half either.  Choose fashion for a bigger bust like open necklines, V-necks and wrap styles, vertical stripes & single breasted jackets.

Best to avoid:

Details that draw attention to your top half are best to avoid! Steer away from puff sleeves, epaulettes and halternecks.

Body Shape Guide

Curvy hourglass girls go in at the middle, often with a fuller bust and bottom to contrast with the smaller waist. You’re blessed with a very sexy shape so you need to learn not to drown it in too-baggy clothes.

Bring out your best

Wrap dresses, waist-cinching belts and flared or wide leg jeans will look fantastic. Not necessarily all at once.

Best to avoid

Shapeless baggy jumpers, or anything oversize that hides your wonderful waist.

Body Shape Guide

If you are the Apple of someone’s eye then you’re pretty in proportion but tend to carry your weight around your mid section without a well-defined waist. You may also have fabulous legs and/or boobs so dressing is all about showing off those best bits and avoiding adding volume round your middle.

Bring out your best

Empire line and longer length tops will look great on your figure. Go for low-ish necklines should definition and high placed accessories to draw the eye upwards. Wear dresses without waistlines, squared off exaggerated shoulders and open dusters.

Best to avoid

Short, boxy jackets (unless you are using then to create layers) and pleated or tiered skirts are not your friends.
