A Comprehensive Guide To Choosing The Perfect Top For Your Body Type

Finding an outfit that flatters your body is a wonderful feeling. However, it's a bit challenging to get your hands on your favorites if you don't know that it's not the type of clothing but the fit and how it covers your body that makes a clothing piece look exceptional. If you know how to measure your body size and shape , it’s easy to find pieces that look great on you.

Here’s a guide on choosing the right top for your body type:

The Four Measurements of the Body Taking your body measurements will help you determine your body type. You need to measure four things: your hips, waist, bust, and shoulders, to determine your body shape. So grab your measuring tape, and let's get started.




Hips Wrap the tape around your butt and hips, right below your hip bone, and measure.

Waistline Measure the region of your waist that is normally above the belly button.


Bust Wrap the tape around the part of your bust that is the fullest. Make sure you haven't compressed your chest while doing so.


Shoulders Wrap the tape loosely just above your shoulder blades and measure. This is the top of your shoulder.

What’s Your Body Shape?

You can figure out your body type now that you know your dimensions. While there are a variety of body forms, most women fall into one of five categories: apple, pear, hourglass, inverted triangle, or rectangle. Knowing this will help you determine the ideal way to dress for your body type.




Apple-Shaped You're probably an apple shape if your waist is not exactly well-defined and you're a bit curvy. Such a body is also known as a round body or circle. Wrapped tops, dolman-sleeved, V-necks, and peplums are the best choices for apple-shaped bodies.


Pear-Shaped You're probably a pear shape if your hips are broader than your shoulders. Peplums, square-necked, cowl-neck, and boat necks are the best top styles for pear-shaped bodies.


Hourglass Body You're probably an hourglass shape if you have a defined waist and your hips and shoulders are generally balanced. Wraps, keyholes, V-necks, and peplums will look the best if you have an hourglass body.




Inverted Triangle You're an inverted triangle if your shoulders are broader than your hips. Opt for peplums, scoop-necked, V-necked, and crewneck tops if you have an inverted triangle body.

Rectangle-Shaped You have a rectangular body shape if you have a straighter build and all four of your measurements are almost the same. A scoop neck, V-neck, sweetheart, or a detailed collar is just perfect for such a body. If you’re looking to find the perfect outfit for your body type, look no further than Lula's Online Boutique.
