Learning how to dress for your body type can do wonders for your confidence! This is something I’ve been working to perfect for the past several years, and I finally think I’ve got it down pat. I pretty much know what clothes, materials and what designers/brands work well for my body type. Granted my weight fluctuates from time to time, but overall my body type really doesn’t change that much. I’ve also learned how to accentuate some of my best physical features, including my legs.
Although I was taught at a very young age to love my body, there were times where I didn’t feel 100% comfortable with showing off my legs. I didn’t think wearing dresses above or at the knee, or even wearing shorts, was the best way to dress for my body type. Once I started experimenting with different styles, lengths and materials I found that dressing for my body type could very well include a few short dresses and shorts. I realized that shorter dresses, with a little flare at the bottom, worked wonders on my body type!
Because I took the time to experiment with clothes, I was able to become comfortable with showing off my legs. I realize now that my legs are one of my best features! I just had to figure out what to wear that would make me feel comfortable and confident enough to show them off. The concept of dressing for your body type takes time, but once you’ve figured it out your self-confidence is elevated. Trust me.
So tell me, do you know how to dress for your body type? What body part(s) do you like to accentuate the most? Let me know!
Thanks for reading and until next time, stay blessed and be safe…XO!

I love this post! As my body changes with age, despite me working hard to stay fit, I have had to learn that the same things I wore at 21 just simply don’t work. xoxo, Maisha
Thanks for reading & commenting, Maisha! Our bodies do change over time; so very true. And I’ve had to learn that same lesson. 😉
This look is so flattering on you! I’m super flat-chested so a lot of figure-hugging looks don’t work for me, but such is life!

Thank you! And yea, there are certain items I just can’t wear either. Like you said, that’s life. 😉
