You should know you’ve got an apple shape when your body is “top heavy,” meaning you have a wide torso, broad shoulders, and a full bust, waist, and upper back. Apple-shaped bodied women also tend to have thinner arms, legs, and hips, and tend to gain weight at their waistlines. If you have an apple shaped body, then you should be proud of your full figure and get ready to flaunt it. But if you want to show off what you’ve got, you need to dress appropriately.
First of all, since a lot of attention is going to be drawn to the top part of your body, get yourself a good fitting bra and then opt for styles that highlight your body at the slimmest point which is often just underneath your bust. Dresses should have their waistline just below the bust or at your thinnest point. V-neck lines outfits works well for this type of shape as it draws attention to your upper region.
Patterns tend to look very good on a apple shape body as they flatter and camouflage, just like the African Ankara prints. They are prints and patterned to give the right illusions whatever way you want to do it. See below our selected Ankara styles for the Apple shaped ladies
