Apple Body Shape

Apple Body Shape

You have an apple body shape if your shoulders are wider than your hips


– Use lower/plunging necklines draw attention upwards. V-neck and sweetheart necklines are great options.

– Elongate your silhouette with a high waistline and a skirt that flows away from the body. Empire waist lines and A-line silhouettes are best for this.

– Consider showing off your legs with knee or tea length dresses.


– Mermaid and Trumpet: will accentuate the widest part of your frame and flare at the slimmest, like do it the dress Belharra of our collection.

– Ballgowns: won’t elongate your silhouette.

– Straight Across Strapless necklines: won’t accentuate your bust line.



Rectangle Body Shape by Laureen Couture


You have a rectangle body shape if shoulders and hips are about the same width and you don’t have a lot of waist definition.

Rectangle Body Shape


–  Create the illusion of curves by drawing attention upwards (strapless, v-neck, one shoulder) or towards the hem (Mermaid).

– Define your waistline. An empire waist will showcase the smallest part of your torso. Or a beaded detail or colored sash around the natural waistline will create definition.


– Halter and High Neck: will make shoulders look narrow and as a result will not flatter your waist.

– Sheaths: will make you look boxy.
