Ideally, figure eight is the dream shape of every lady which is not always the way they actually look. So as ladies, it is necessary to know our body shape because no matter what your body shape is, you can still be that gorgeous-looking-cool-chic.
An apple shaped body means heavy upper part of the body which means a wide torso, broad shoulders, a full bust and waist. Apple shaped body also tends to have a thinner arms, legs and hips, they also tend to gain weight at their waistlines. For a person that is of apple shape, the hips may be narrow (something similar to inverted triangle, but the mid-section is fuller/wider).
Choosing what to wear for the apple body shape can sometimes be challenging, so keep it in mind that the goal of whichever outfit you put on is to trim and define your waist. Structured garments are your best bet because they hold in and camouflage the extra weight around your mid section.
Generally, the best asset an apple shaped person have is great legs and boobs, so it is advisable to camouflage your weak points ( your mid section and emphasize your stronger ones; your legs and the bust).
Wear the right skirt because a great skirt can help define your apple-shaped body. Try wearing a skirt that has a bias cut or an A-line, or flatter your figure with a full circle skirt. Avoid skirts that are tight around the waist or which fall at your natural waist. You can also wear a trumpet skirt or skirts with a hanky hem. A-line skirts are always perfect for an apple shaped body because it draws attention away from the bulkiness of the mid section to your hips and gives a more even outlook. Also, high waist flouncy skirts are also a great choice because the waistband will hit at the smallest part of the torso and flare out over the stomach, masking the mid-section. Lastly, the short hemline will show off slender legs.
