Perfect Lingerie To Suit Your Body Type

Perfect Lingerie To Suit Your Body Type

Apple, pear, banana and an hourglass; these are three fruits and one extinct object used to signify women’s body types. Let’s be honest! It’s tough to nail down every lady’s body, especially when every single body is dissimilar. But when it comes to dressing one’s shape, discovering the right cuts and silhouettes that fit and augment is the key to enhancing confidence and complimenting a natural figure. And when lingerie comes into play, it’s even more obliging and essential to become more in tune with the construction and frame of one’s body. From wider shoulders to curvier thighs, #Clovia offers you specific pieces that compliment certain assets and camouflage others’ self-proclaimed tricky areas.

Syndicate these tips with your own style inclination, and you’ll be that much closer to discovering a piece of garment that will make you feel sexy and irresistible stating your #Underfashion.

Pear/Triangle Shape

Pear shape signifies that you have a smaller upper body build. This does not mean that you certainly are small busted; it simply implies that you have a reduced top that tapers out. Babydolls compliment this body type the best since they are tight at top and loosen out at the bottom. If you have a petit top take a shot at babydoll that has padding or pushes up your breasts.

Inverted Pear/Triangle Shape

This is the precise opposite of the pear-shaped body. This means you have a larger upper body build. Your shoulders are a bit broader, while your hips are reduced. Chemises work fine for this body shape because they constrict around the hips, flaunting your smaller bottom. Also, teddies work well since they are made to create a v-shape that put emphasis on the natural made by the body.

Hourglass Shape

This body type is mostly equally proportioned on both top and bottom. This very feminine shape works well with a corset or bustier. It snaps in the waist to accentuate that hourglass-figure all the more.


Get a baggy garment if you don’t want to highlight your belly. Babydolls and loose-fitting gowns or robes do a good job of taking the focus off of that mid-section and underlining your torso or your legs. Also, black is always a slimming color to ponder upon.

Large Breasts

Underwire or halter tops are pre-eminent for larger breasts because they both help lift and support the chest, showing it off in a more flattering way.

Short Legs

If you’re a shorter person, gowns with slits or petite length lingerie portrays the illusion of longer legs. Remember short is never bad when you’re dealing with lingerie. You want your intimates to be proportional to your size, so the shorter the person, the shorter the lingerie needs to be in order to show off what you want.

Long Legs

White is a decent color for taller people. Also, make sure when you’re shopping for lingerie not to buy something that looks like it’s thought to be long. If you buy a gown that’s supposed to hit the ground, and it’s above your ankles, it won’t look right. Don’t be scared to show off those legs because they’re one of your best features!
