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.
