Style Tips / Hourglass figure


The coming weeks I will tell you everything about body figures. Because when you wear the clothing that fits you body figure you pay attention to the parts of your body where you are proud of and show your figure to its best advantage.
Hereby it’s not important to blur those parts on which you are not so proud of, but lay emphasis on the best parts of your body.

With the aim to feel more confident and shine more!

Every week I tell you all about the characteristics of a figure type and give you tips about the do’s and don’ts.



Do you have equal shoulders and hips and do you have a visible waist? Than you probably have an hourglass figure. And you may think that for this body figure you have to be skinny by definition. But that’s not true. Also fuller women can have this kind of body figure.





Features hourglass figure:

  • shoulders and hips are equal
  • slim waist
  • round hips



Opt for round silhouettes and lay focus on your waist. For example, wear fitted shirts or tops with a round neckline. Bodycon dresses and wrap dresses are also very well suited for you.
Do you like skirts, you can really go every way. Both pencil skirts, wraparound skirts and flared skirts are perfect for your body figure.
For pants, choose a model like bootcut or skinny. These are the best options for an hourglass figure.
When you wear jackets make sure these are always fitted with the emphasis on your slim waist.



When you have an hourglass figure you can almost wear everything. But remember that shapeless and oversized clothing does not look that great on you.



Do not wear clothes with a straight fit and prefer no pants in a straight model. Stripes, checks and geometric prints are not great for you either.
