The apple-body shape features:

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

  • Average bust
  • Stomach larger than chest
  • Quite flat behind
  • Slim legs

Overall tips for women with an apple figure:

The apple is by definition round. Your shape is soft and lovely and is simply so easy to change with the right clothes.

Use clothes to highlight your body in the right places e.g. with dresses and jackets with tie straps with a high waistband. Tops that are cut just below the breasts hide the stomach, and instead emphasize the bust. Drapes and wrinkles in the clothes on your upper body confuse the eye and make your (otherwise agreeable) love handles look like folds in your clothes. You can cheat for a little extra height with vertical stripes instead of horizontal.

Avoid any pants with high waists and instead choose a pair with a wide waistband that cinches you in so that no more bumps appear on your stomach. Go for pants with width, which are not tight on your stomach, back or thighs.
