Love Your Body: How to Know How a Style will Look on Your Frame

Love Your Body: How to Know How a Style will Look on Your Frame

We want you to love your body just the way it is. And finding the right fit for you is a simple way to help you feel comfortable and confident. Find out what body type you are and what looks great on your frame.

Body image is something we’ve all likely struggled with at some point in our lives. And maybe we still do. It can be a challenge not to compare ourselves to others around us, on our social media feed, and in the shows and movies we watch.

 

But we want you to love your body just the way it is. And finding the right fit for you is a simple way to help you feel comfortable and confident.

 

Our mission is to inspire women to look good and feel good through the way they dress — no matter their body shape.

 

Choosing the Right Outfit for You

Have you ever fallen in love with an outfit you’ve seen online, excitedly picked it up when it arrived at your door, then tried it on and found yourself disappointed by the way it fit your figure? We’ve been there. It’s both discouraging and frustrating.

 

For Priya (36" bust, 37" waist, 46.5" hips, 30" inseam), her body shape is best described as pear. She looks great in longer jackets and dresses, cozy sweaters, and short, statement necklaces.

 

For Stephanie (36" bust, 32.5" waist, 41.5" hips, 27" inseam), her body shape is best described as hourglass. She looks great in cropped jackets, high-waisted jeans, and waist-defining, knee-length dresses.

 

For Jazz (52" bust, 48" waist, 58" hips, 30" inseam), her body shape is best described as round. She looks great in waist-length jackets and cardigans, V-neck sweaters and tops, and bootcut jeans.

 

For Sam (37" bust, 31.5" waist, 39" hips, 30.5" inseam), her body shape is best described as hourglass. She looks great in empire waist tops, waist-defining wrap dresses, and skinny jeans.

 

Do you know your body type? Knowing ours has helped us tremendously in curating our personal wardrobes to best suit us as individuals.

Body Shapes & Styles

To help you in determining what our pieces will look like on your body type, we have each item featured on different models. This way you can see what it looks like on a shape similar to yours.

 

Which Body Type Are You? 

Pear Shaped

• Fuller hips, with your waist wider than your bust and shoulders narrower than your hips.

• Your look-good fashion consists of scoop, cowl, off-the-shoulder, or V-necks tops; A-line skirts; tops and dresses with embellishments on the shoulders; flare or bootcut pants; big, bold necklaces and earrings.

 

Hourglass Shaped

• Your bust and hips are about the same, with a well-defined waist.

• Your look-good fashion consists of emphasizing that waist with form-fitting tops and dresses; peplum, boat, or V-neck tops; empire waist or wrap dresses; flares and skinny jeans; waist-accentuating belts.

 

Athletic Shaped

• Your shoulders and hips measure about the same, with a waist that isn't as well-defined.

• Your look-good fashion consists of scoop, round, and high-neck tops; most styles and lengths of dresses; flare, bootcut or skinny jeans; layered necklaces and scarves.

 

Round Shaped

• Your shoulders are broad and your hips are narrow — or your shoulders and hips are even — with no defined waistline.

• Your look-good fashion consist of scoop or V-neck tops; wrap tops and dresses; A-line or straight skirts; jackets that fall to the waist; straight-leg or bootcut pants; long, Y-shaped and V-shaped necklaces.

 

Inverted Triangle Shaped 

 • Your shoulders are broader than your hips, and your hips aren't as curvy.

• Your look-good fashion consists of flowy, A-line silhouette or V-neck tops; oversized sweaters paired with skinny jeans; knee-length dresses; statement bracelets, rings, and earrings.

 

We want women to feel comfortable and confident in their bodies. And knowing your body type and what looks and fits great on you can boost your mood, comfort, and confidence. Styles can also vary by your individuality and personality, so it's about what makes you feel like you.

 

Love,

Priya & Stephanie
