Fashion Tips for Hourglass Shaped Women

May 10, 2010

Women who are hourglass shaped have a well-defined waist with fuller hips and bust.  This is sometimes thought of as the most preferable body type.  When selecting your wardrobe, choose clothing that enhances your features, and avoid loose fitting clothing that does not flaunt your shape.  Draw attention to your thin waist with belts or tops with a fitted waist.  Avoid empire tops which draw attention directly above your slimmest body area.  This blouse is great for hourglasses because it tightens around the waist.

Another idea is to wear darker colored bottoms and a lighter colored top.  This will emphasize the waist, while minimizing curves.  You can also choose a monochromatic outfit with a belted waist to balance the body and slim the figure, or wear a wrap dress like this one that is extremely flattering to your shape.

Fashion Tips for Oval Shaped Women

May 5, 2010

Full figured, or oval shaped women, gather most of their weight in their midsection.  It does them well to create the illusion of more curves.  This can be done in many ways, for example wearing lower cut or V-neck shirts that will draw the eye to the bust line, elongate the body, and slenderize the neck.  Ovals should avoid tighter fitting tops that will only showcase a large stomach.  Turtle necks and clothing with large busy prints around the body shape should also be avoided because they bring attention to the heaviest part of the body.  This loose-fitting top is very flattering to ovals.  It ties around the waist and has a low-cut neck line to slim the body.

Fitted or pencil skirts accentuate legs and bring the eyes away from the stomach area.  Midrise pants are preferable to cargo pants because they give you a fuller figure.  Clothing with a belted waist is also always beneficial to narrow the waistline of oval shaped women.  This outfit is perfect.  The short skirt shows off great legs, and the belted shirt camouflages belly fat.

Fashion Tips For Inverted Triangles

April 27, 2010

We like to classify women who are top heavy as inverted triangles.  With the majority of body weight being distributed to the top half of the body, inverted triangles should give the illusion of a smaller waist and a more elongated look.  This can be done by wearing wrap tops, clothing with a cinched waist, and V-neck tops.  Wide belts worn along the waist and low-rise pants also create a lean body image.  Try to avoid tight bottoms because they will only accentuate top heaviness.  Instead, opt for flared, bootcut, or wide-leg pants.  Shorter skirts are great for inverted triangles because you can show off great legs.  This mini skirt is super cute for flaunting beautiful legs.  Paired with a tunic style shirt would make a perfect slimming outfit.

This purple wrap dress makes inverted triangles look lean and is practical for work or for fun.  The V-neck cut and knee length dress show-off all of your best features.

Fashion Tips For Triangle Shaped Women

April 26, 2010

Triangle shaped women, or ladies who gain weight primarily around the waist, hips, and thighs, should accentuate the top half of the body to draw attention away from the heavier areas.  Triangles should avoid anything too tight, such as mini-skirts, and instead select an A-line or more loose fitting skirt.  Bottoms that are patterned or pants with large cargo pockets, excessive zippers, or other details that draw attention to the hip area should all be avoided.  Dark colored bottoms offer a much more slimming look for the bottom heavy woman.  Light-weight, loose-fitting shorts and straight leg or boot cut pants are perfect for triangles as well.  As stated before, attention should be brought to the leaner top half of the body.  Sleeveless or strapless dresses and tops are great to play up pretty arms and shoulders.  This little black dress creates a thin look and with an asymmetrical gold chained sleeve on one side, the focus will be directed immediately to the favorite parts of the body.

This dress is also very flattering to triangle shaped women because the waist down is black, once again offering a slimming look, and the top of the dress is patterned, which draws attention up.

Health And Weightloss Tips

April 19, 2010

Healthy living may prove challenging at times, but there are easy adjustments that can be made to help.  Diet and exercise should be combined and consistency must be maintained for best results.  By making simple changes, such as opting for unprocessed foods, these small actions will all add up to improve the big picture.  Stay away from processed and bleached foods, for example:  white sugar, white rice, and white bread.  Keeping a daily food diary also proves to be very helpful.  Write down everything that you consume throughout the day, including water.  Studies have shown that by maintaining a record of your food intake lessens the amount you eat, and it also provides a good way to reflect on daily eating habits.

When it comes to working out, find someone who is better at fitness than you to train with.  This will motivate you and possibly supply you with new exercises and stretches.  While at the gym, do cardio before weights.  Advantages from this routine include increased metabolism and energy expenditure.  After the gym, do not weight yourself; instead use a tape measure to judge the success of your workouts.
