Hourglass shape - what to wear

Tips and advice on what clothes to wear for hourglass shape women

Natalie's tips

If your shoulders are in proportion to your hips and you have a defined waist, you’ve got what the fashion industry likes to call an hourglass shape.

The best way to learn the types and features of clothes that suit your body shape is to think in terms of proportions rather than in terms of labelling your shape (pear or hourglass for example). By knowing your height, weight, bust size and hip-to-shoulder ratio, we can recommend the perfect style of clothes to flatter your shape and balance out your proportions. Fine tune these even more by letting us know what parts of your body you want to reveal or conceal. Discover your correct body shape here.
