THE INVERTED TRIANGLE BODY SHAPE

The inverted triangle body shape seems to be a bit common than we realize, most women think they have wide hips and butt but they are quite slim in that area. If you are not so sure about your body image, you can ask a friend to help you define your shape.

IF YOU HAVE AN INVERTED TRIANGLE BODY SHAPE :

  • Your shoulders are broader and your hips are narrow.
  • your waist may go in slightly, or be a bit straighter, but the main defining feature of your shape is the different proportions of shoulders and hips
  • appear bigger at your upper region, but not always
  • tend to be drawn to v-necklines

 

HOW TO DRESS THE INVERTED TRIANGLE BODY SHAPE:

  • bring attention to narrow hips
  • keep clothing slim in hip area to create definition and curve, which will create visual balance in your shape
  • make sure all details like ruffles, patterns, and other design elements are in areas other than shoulders
  • bottoms need to be cut straight, if there is room for hips cut into a garment you will find it gapes, and looks too big
  • clothing shapes that also create an inverted triangle shape will be most comfortable for you

CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES THAT WILL BE EASIEST FOR YOU TO WEAR:

  • narrow pants like skinny jeans look amazing on you
  • a pencil skirt is your best skirt shape (this skirt is in the shape of an inverted triangle, too)
  • V-necklines are amazing in all shirt styles as they visually narrow shoulders (think collared shirts, sweaters, t-shirts, etc.)
  • belts look awesome on you and create balance for your shape
  • tend to look good in leggings, which bring attention to narrow hips/legs
