Do you always find pants that fit your hips but then gape at the waistline? Or ever think if your hips, thighs, and bum were just a teeny bit smaller, then you'd be perfect? Jacqui Stafford, celebrity style expert and author of The Wow Factor: Insider Style Secrets for Every Body and Every Budget, calls your shape the "fragrance bottle."
You probably never have a problem finding tops that fit, but usually need to go up a size or two to find pants that fit. And no matter how much weight you lose, it never seems to come off your bum or thighs.
The key with your shape is to downplay your heavier bottom half by wearing pieces that bring the focus up to your top half. The simplest way to do this: wear lighter, eye-catching colors and prints on the upper half of your body and darker, muted shades on the bottom.
Go for a brightly colored silky blouse and pair with super slimming dark-wash jeans. Remember the trick is to keep the attention focused toward your upper half.
