It's not because it's more attractive. Actually, studies have
shown that men are attracted to women who have curves
rather than pencil thin women. Designers hire tall thin models
to show their clothes because that body type looks good in all
clothing styles. Designers want their clothes to look as perfect
as possible so they hire models who look great in everything.
In the real world women are different shapes and sizes and
all clothing styles do not look great on most women. That is
why a women who knows how to dress well, also knows her
body type and how to accentuate her assets. No matter
what size or shape you are, you will look one hundred percent
better when you use clothing shapes to your advantage.
There are however, a few and a very few, styles that most
any woman can wear and look great. These are 3 that I chose:
The jacket: This jacket will look great on most body types
because of its length. It's not too long for the petite woman
or too short for a lady with large hips. It has a slimming
effect, but will not minimize the upper body enough to affect
the triangle body shape. The vertical lines are great for the
hourglass, inverted triangle and the oval body shapes.
The Pant: The pant is great to conceal large hips because it
evens out the width at the bottom of the leg. It will conceal
large legs and will add a width for the inverted triangles who
are small at the bottom.
The Skirt: The skirt creates a long line making creating
a look of height. It is great to conceal large hips (in a darker
color and not worn tight) and will even out the inverted
triangle at the very bottom where it has a little flare.
Most styles do not look great on every body shape and these
three are just some of the few. To look your best, take your
body type and your height into account when you shop. You
won't be able to wear all the styles but the styles you can
wear will look amazing.
