Tips for the Inverted Triangle Figure

Do you have a wider upper body but smaller hips and legs? If you do, then you have an inverted triangle body shape! Your goal here is to balance your figure by accentuating your bottom half. Follow these simple tips if you want to get even more fabulous with your inverted triangle body shape!


If you have an inverted triangle figure, you will want to draw attention away from your broad shoulders or big upper chest and draw more attention to your slim lower body and often lean legs. First, you need to wear dresses with less detailing around the neckline and bust area, since they are the biggest parts of your body. You can opt for a V neck dress to balance your upper body proportions.

Now the dresses. One of the dress that fits your figure is the A-line dress. It will be perfect to add volume to your lower half. The defined waist and flare over your hips helps create the illusion of lower-body curves and will help balance out your broad shoulders. The flare will also add overall balance below with its full-type skirt.

To add more volume to your lower body, you can also opt for pleated dresses. This texture will create more bulk to your slim legs, thus making your whole figure balanced. If you want to wear details, you gotta make sure that they (read: ruffles, patterns, bows, and other design elements) are in areas other than your shoulders. Dresses that have a lot of detail on the lower half area, will make your hips look broader and therefore more proportionate to the shoulders. If you want to wear stripes, try horizontal ones, since it can give a wider illusion to your body.
