Apple Body Shape – Dress Inspiration

Inspiration for apple shape – dress?

Remember, your body shape is not about your weight!

If you have an apple-shaped body, you will have a wide torso, broad shoulders, and a full bust, waist, and upper back.

Apple-shaped women may also have thinner arms, legs, and hips, and if you put on a few pounds it will be around your waistline.

Which dresses might suit your body shape will depend on the occasion, of course, but here’s a few ideas for inspiration.

 

SINEAD FLORAL DRESS (RED) - €39.50

SINEAD FLORAL DRESS (RED) – €39.50

Go for a dress that fits neatly around your bust – a V-line neck is ideal, with a bit of flow underneath so it skims your curves.

MALIBU WRAP DRESS BY ONLY (BRIGHT WHITE) - €37.00

MALIBU WRAP DRESS BY ONLY (BRIGHT WHITE) – €37.00

You’re going for a cut and fabric that’s not too clingy, but it shouldn’t be boxy, baggy, or formless, either.

MALIBU WRAP DRESS BY ONLY (NIGHT SKY) €37.00

MALIBU WRAP DRESS BY ONLY (NIGHT SKY) – €37.00

If it’s too loose, you can end up looking shapeless, and give the illusion that your waist is bigger than it actually is.

COLEEN DRESS BY CLOSET LONDON - €134.00

COLEEN DRESS BY CLOSET LONDON – €134.00

The Coleen dress by closet has a high waist, giving it an empire line feel that works well for apple shaped ladies, and the sleeveless design shows off your lovely arms to perfection!

ARLET KNOT DRESS (BLUE) - €46.50

ARLET KNOT DRESS (BLUE) – €46.50

We love this smart casual shirt dress by Arlet. Perfect for work or play!

SANDRA TULIP FLORAL DRESS - €54.50

SANDRA TULIP FLORAL DRESS – €54.50

The Sandra dress works for apple shaped ladies because of the shoulder and hip detail, and a cinched in waist – contributing a little extra on top and bottom where you can afford it for balance, and drawing in at the middle.
