Dress Your Shape

1. If you have a Busty Shape:

You may have:

  • A wider back
  • Full arms
  • Softer shoulders
  • A defined waistline

Busty women always have full breasts, regardless of their weight.

Wrap Dress

R325 – Woolworths


Elongate your neck and flatter your bust with a staple V-neck wrap dress.


  • Statement jewellery draws the eye upwards.
  • A belt will cinch in your waist to give you an hourglass look.
  • A flared sleeve or jersey will help you achieve slender looking arms.





2. If you have an Apple Shape:

You may have:

  • Full breasts and a wide back
  • Slim arms with wider shoulders
  • Slim hips and a trim backside
  • You gain weight at the midsection

The apple upper body is always larger than the lower half.

Sheer Floral Shacket

R299 – Woolworths

Lightweight layers such as a chiffon blouse and tank top work well to conceal the midriff area.


  • Trim your figure with straight cuts and vertical seaming.
  • Choose trousers that create a balanced silhouette, eg. wide legged pants.
  • Sheer fabrics are great for the ultimate reveal and conceal.


3. If you have a Curvy Shape:

You may have:

  • Bust and hips nearly the same size
  • Well defined waist or more smaller than bust
  • Full bust
  • Shapely legs

The curvy lady has a curvaceous bust and hips with a slimmer waist.

Mint Tunic Dress

R569 – Zando

Sleeves on a draped dress work wonders to balance out your physique and emphasize your shoulders.


  • Use draping to your advantage. Not only will it accentuate your curves, it will also disguise the tummy area.
  • You can wear fitted clothes but make sure they’re not too tight so the clothes really mirror your figure, rather than pull at it.
  • High-waisted, wide-legged trousers will emphasize the curve of your hip without making your bottom half look big.




4. If you have a Pear Shape:

You may have:

  • A bottom heavy shape
  • Thin and slender neck
  • Narrow or sloping shoulders
  • Larger and more generous lower hips and thighs

You definitely have a curvy bottom half, with rounded hips and full thighs.

Blue Shift Dress

R275 – Woolworths


A wide boatneck shift or A-line dress will create balance to your figure.


  • A-line dresses or skirts work well to skim over problem areas and smooth the hip and thigh.
  • Wide necklines such as boatneck or scoopneck style can widen the shoulders and balance your bottom half.
  • Lengthen and slim your legs with a pair of heeled shoes.
