The hourglass-body shape features:

If you recognise the features below, then you have an hourglass figure:

  • Large bust
  • Small waist
  • Short waist
  • Wide hips
  • Shapely thighs

Overall tips for women with an hourglass figure:

The hourglass figure is often seen as the epitome of the feminine body, and when blessed with a full bust and hips, why not show off the curves?

Go for tight-fitting and figure-hugging clothes that accentuate your waist. A pencil skirt is really complementary for your figure and highlights the curves from your hips to your knees. If you prefer wearing pants, you should go for the kind that sits loose, but preferably should sit close to the hips.

Tight and figure hugging dresses fit perfectly with your figure, but you should always wear a dress that lifts your bust and extends your waist.
