Circle Body Shape

This kind of body shape is the most tricky one because it makes you imagine that the lower body area is as wide as the upper body area. Instead the lower area is quite the opposite compared to the upper body area.
The main features of this body are: large breasts, sloping shoulders, narrow hips, not very well-defined waist, flat bum. So basically the upper part of the body is fuller than the lower part.

You’re more keen to gain extra weight on your breast, waist and abdomen (yeah, I know you’d like to carry that extra weight behind rather than on your abdomen but let’s just deal with the fact that you will never achieve that natural soft fat pillow between your bones and the chair). What are the hacks for this kind of body then? Try to elongate the torso, drift the attention from the breasts to the legs (this is a tough quest, I know), create a little volume in the lower part of the body (to balance the figure) and define a waistline.
The ideal clothes are structured garments because they define curves and compress the excess weight whenever it’s needed.

YES, therefore for V-necks and crew-necks, regular or lower waistline, A-line skirts from the knee down, crossed dresses (but also skirts and tops), slightly flared trousers, boot-cut or regular leg jeans, slouchy chino pants with pinces ( wide above and narrow below), long necklaces and dangling earrings (to lengthen the torso), handbags, high heels and wedges.

Avoid high waist skirts and jeans (yes I know it flattens your stomach but you have the priority to stretch the torso, not to cut it), avoid large belts when possible, no clothes without a defined structure and made with stiff and straight fabric, no pleated skirts.  And now enjoy some outfits I picked for you!
