Rectangle shape - what to wear

Tips and advice on what clothes to wear for rectangle & column shape women

Natalie's tips

If your shoulders are in proportion to your hips, and you do not have a defined waist, you’ve got what the fashion industry likes to call a rectangle shape (or column or pencil shape).

The easiest 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 (such as pear, hourglass or rectangles & columns). By knowing your height, weight, bust size and hip-to-shoulder ratio, we can recommend the perfect style of clothes to flatter your assets 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.
