First of all, understand that modest and shapeless are most definitely NOT synonymous. We’re not asking you to go all bodycon, but avoid ill-fitting clothes. All they do is make you look sloppy. Overly long sleeves, too-big shirts, skirts with loose waistlines… don’t. Just don’t. please and thank you
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about the waist. The waist is the slimmest part of a woman’s body, and this is the part that should be most emphasized. When choosing bottoms, it’s better to go with pants and skirts with cinched waistlines, or with waist bands. even if you’re on the bigger size, a dress with a belt will give the impression of a slimmer waist, and give you the illusion of an hourglass figure.
Next important tip is: Dress for your body shape. Whether you’re wearing a dress, pants, or a skirt, it’s extremely important to dress according to your body shape, because when you don’t. it’s easy to look bulky, or to get lost in the modest clothes if you’re more petite. If you’re apple shaped, go for empire waistlines to emphasize your bust and give a slimmer illusion of your midsection. If you’re pear shaped, invest in trench coats and layers for the upper body. If you’re banana shaped, wear coats, clothes with belts, and bold colors. If you’re petite, stay away from bulky clothes.
So there you have it. You can now slay modestly. Thank us later!
