Waist Illusion

You are able to create an illusion at your waist with a belt for instance that will give you a more hour glass figure and make your waist look smaller.

Raise the Waistline

You are able to create a longer and leaner look with an empire waist as it hits higher on the waist. They also hot your smallest area. You need to choose a raised waist that is sleek below the empire waist and not full.

Show Some Skin

Showing skin can be faltering. You can try a cold shoulder silhouette or choose a skirt that will show your legs.

Elongating Neckline

You should choose a neckline that has a vertical element so the eye is draw up and down and not across. You can try a V neck and a U neck as both of these are flattering.

Wrap Silhouette

A wrap dress will give you the illusion of a waist and has a V neck so these are great for apple shapes.

Tailored Pieces

A tailored jacket, pant and shirt will balance your figure as they have some structure to them.

Mid-Rise Jeans

A mid-rise jean will cover your rear and provide a high waistline. Low cut jeans will make your middle look heavy.

Face Framing

You should try bringing the focus to your face. You can do this with dangling earrings or a draped neckline.


You shouldn’t shy away from prints as bold florals or geometrics can camouflage your figure. You need to choose prints that have a minimum background.
