Sometimes it happens that you like a dress and then try it. But then you find out it just doesn’t fit properly. So what goes wrong? Actually, it’s neither the dress’s fault nor yours. It’s just that the dress was not made for your body shape.
Outfit Ideas for Spoon Body Shaped Women
What do you need to do?
Before you start picking outfits for you, you must know all about your body shape. Since you have a spoon-shaped body which is also referred to as figure 8 or violin, your body is prone to gain weight in your tummy. Also, your hips have “shelf” appearance which means you just have high hips. So you need outfits that will deemphasize your tummy and hips that will create a proper balance between the bust and hip.
Let’s start with the Upper Body
Your body shape must be considered before you pick an outfit.
- Types of Tops
You want to make your bust appear as wide as your hips while trying to take away the focus from your tummy. For this, you should opt for tops with empire waist. This will bring focus to your bust and the fabric will gently drape over your tummy and hips and thereby camouflage any tummy bulges you might have. Tops with embellishments are also your best option since they will add more bulk to your smaller bust and will eventually balance out the body figure. Besides these, try tops with ruffles,
For tops get sleeves such as flutter or princess and as for the shirts you could go for full sleeves but make sure that the shirts have some details around the bust.
- Necklines for You
Having that violin shape all you need to do is to try to make your bust appear a bit bigger than it really is. So the wider is the neckline the better for your spoon figure. Try necklines such as wide V-neck or U-neck. You can also choose from off-the-shoulder or boat neck tops and dresses.
- Nipped in Jackets
Blazers, jackets, and coats, whatever kind of layers that you are adding make sure that they don’t look boxy on you. Always try jackets with structured shoulders or wide collars so they add bulk to your bust and balance your lower body. But at the same time make sure that the jackets are nipped in at the waist. Fit and flare jackets and crop jackets with maxi dresses will make one good outfit for your spoon figure.
Make your Lower Body look Slimmer
Having the spoon figure might make you gain weight in the tummy as well as upper thighs and arms, your lower legs and arms tend to remain in a killer shape.
While choosing the trouser never ever go for the flared ones. You need to balance your lower body with the upper body. Flared pants will do exactly opposite to do that. So pants with straight legs are your safest bet. Bootcut jeans will work as well. Avoid any flaps and button on your high hip area whether they are in pants or jackets or skirts. Also avoid pleats on pants and skirts as well.
