Body Shapes of the Plus Size Woman

The Pear Shape or Triangle Shape

Pear shaped plus sized women have a body defined as smaller on the top and widening to a larger hip area. Often these woman are touted for their large bottoms (which many men find to be very attractive). In relation to the bustline measurement, the hips are larger, along with the thighs.

In order to balance the pear shaped plus sized woman, adding weight, focus or attention to the bust and shoulder area can help to make the pear shape appear more balanced. For example, you can add shoulder pads to your jacket or blouse. You may want to wear a push up or padded bra to make your bustline appear larger or you may want to simply wear lots of jewelry at your neckline in order to bring attention to the upper area of your body.

The Apple Shape, Rounded or Diamond Shape

Apple shaped plus sized women have a body defined as smaller on the top and bottom with a larger waistline - a rounded figure. Most apple shaped woman do not have much of a waistline as compared to their hips, bust and shoulders. They actually have no defined waistline.

To combat the lack of waist definition, apple shaped body types should not put focus on the waist area. Instead, they should try to put the focus on other areas of the body. They may want to try to add some attention to the shoulder and neckline area taking away the focus from the waist, and in turn, balancing the waist and bust sizes.
