Spring is steadily approaching and many of you may take this opportunity to go shopping for new spring outfits. Before you head out and swipe your credit card for the latest fashion trends, I’d like to offer tips on finding the best styles that flatter your body shape.Understanding your body shape and choosing styles that compliment your figure can dramatically change the way clothes appear on your body; change the way you perceive your body; and more importantly, give you the confidence to feel beautiful.

This is the time to embrace your figure, accept your troubled areas and accentuate your best features. Here are a few tips to make you look fabulous and feel like a million bucks!

(Note: There are roughly 4 body shapes. Please be advised each of us are made uniquely different. Thus, you may not fit one particular category, and as a result are a combination of two categories. For example, I have a straight body shape, however, I have a full bust.)

    I wish I had an hourglass figure :(

    I pretty much have an hourglass shape and forever I have been advised to wear v-necks. I did this for a while…but over the past couple of years I have found the absolute complete opposite… tops and dress that have a very squared off/high neckline (NOT POLO NECKS!) can be extremely flattering. With an hourglass figure its easy to look overtly sexy…afterall page 3/pin up girls/playboy/victoria secret models usually have an hourglass figure…you have to be careful not to look like you’re ‘trying’ to show off your busy. I find that with an hourglass figure there is already enough to feast the eyes – little waist, round bum etc… I feel that higher necklines are a lot more flattering…. 

    Would be interested to hear if other hourglasses have found this too?

       I too have an hourglass shape.  I wear v-necks, but they don’t plunge into my bust line and tend to be more exaggerated, showing more of the collar bone.  I find that a scoop anything, that covers the cleavage works for me as well.  Wearing a straight shirt that shows all of our collar bone is attractive too, just need the right place to wear it.
