How to Dress the O Body Shape

The O body shape, also known as an apple shape, is characterized by having a rounded, fuller midsection compared to the rest of the body.

  • The midsection tend to be wider than the hips and shoulders
  • Small to large bust
  • Narrow hips
  • Tend to have slim and long legs
  • Typically gains weight at the tummy

As the waist is the widest part of the body, the goal is to de-emphasize the midsection and draw attention to the face and legs.

  • Opt for wider, open necklines such as v necks, scoop, square, sweetheart, etc.
  • Choose tops and dresses with an empire waistline
  • Wear fabrics that drape, not cling
  • Keep details above the bustline and below the hips
  • Play with dense prints to disguise the tummy
  • Avoid belts and excessive fabric around the midsection
