A Comprehensive Guide To Choosing The Perfect Top For Your Body Type

Finding an outfit that flatters your body is a wonderful feeling. However, it's a bit challenging to get your hands on your favorites if you don't know that it's not the type of clothing but the fit and how it covers your body that makes a clothing piece look exceptional.

If you know how to measure your body size and shape , it’s easy to find pieces that look great on you.

Here’s a guide on choosing the right top for your body type:

The Four Measurements of the Body

Taking your body measurements will help you determine your body type. You need to measure four things: your hips, waist, bust, and shoulders, to determine your body shape. So grab your measuring tape, and let's get started.

Hips

Wrap the tape around your butt and hips, right below your hip bone, and measure.

Waistline

Measure the region of your waist that is normally above the belly button.

Bust

Wrap the tape around the part of your bust that is the fullest. Make sure you haven't compressed your chest while doing so.

Shoulders

Wrap the tape loosely just above your shoulder blades and measure. This is the top of your shoulder.

Things to Consider in Buying a Loungewear

Some of us practically live in our loungewear, but it’s not a mere piece of clothing. You should be picky in buying your loungewear because, well, it’s what you wear most

What’s Your Body Shape?

You can figure out your body type now that you know your dimensions. While there are a variety of body forms, most women fall into one of five categories: apple, pear, hourglass, inverted triangle, or rectangle. Knowing this will help you determine the ideal way to dress for your body type.

Apple-Shaped

You're probably an apple shape if your waist is not exactly well-defined and you're a bit curvy. Such a body is also known as a round body or circle. Wrapped tops, dolman-sleeved, V-necks, and peplums are the best choices for apple-shaped bodies.

Pear-Shaped

You're probably a pear shape if your hips are broader than your shoulders. Peplums, square-necked, cowl-neck, and boat necks are the best top styles for pear-shaped bodies.

Hourglass Body

You're probably an hourglass shape if you have a defined waist and your hips and shoulders are generally balanced. Wraps, keyholes, V-necks, and peplums will look the best if you have an hourglass body.

Inverted Triangle

You're an inverted triangle if your shoulders are broader than your hips. Opt for peplums, scoop-necked, V-necked, and crewneck tops if you have an inverted triangle body.

Rectangle-Shaped

You have a rectangular body shape if you have a straighter build and all four of your measurements are almost the same. A scoop neck, V-neck, sweetheart, or a detailed collar is just perfect for such a body.
