shopping tips
Shopping tip 101 Shopping tip One of the best ways to stay focused while shopping is to take a picture with you out of one of your favorite magazines. If you take an image with you, not only will it help you and a sales staff to pull together the look you want, but it will also help you stay focused on what you came to the store for in the first place as well as save money.
Source your magazines-meaning pull out the information that inspires you, put it in a binder and recycle the rest. I started doing this when I was in college and it has been a lot of fun. It also saves time and space.

I love womens shoes. I have no idea why I love them as much as I do. It is a true obsession.

All the girls in my family seemed to be afflicted with it, thought some have it more then others.

I thought for the longest it was some weird little oddity that only my family had.

Bottom Heavy body type Dresses

The best dresses for this body type are A line, empire waist, wrap dress, trapeze, and bustier style dresses are all good choices.

Empire waist and bustier style dresses are good because emphasis are naturally on your neck and bust line and at the same time the skirt of the dress is almost always fuller.

A line dresses and trapeze dresses are probably the easiest choices because you just don’t have to think about them. The cut of these dresses naturally hide or at least minimize your derrière.


Skirts for bottom heavy body types are pretty straightforward.  Keep the gathers and pleating to a minimum, so choose soft flairs and gathers in fabrics that drape well.

Princess cut jackets and coats are the natural choices for bottom heavy body types because they are fitted at the shoulders down to the waist and flare out at the hips.A wrap coat is also a good choice for the same reason.

How to Choose Tops 

You get to have fun and play when it comes to tops. Almost any top that has an interesting cut or some interesting details are good choices. Also any color you love should work fine so long as the tops are lighter in color then the pants or skirts you are wearing. If you do like a monochromatic look (all one color) then just make sure the tops have some details or wear some interesting accessories.
tops bottom heavyAnother idea to think about is, tops that have an hourglass shape. These tops are great because they have a form-fitting look and still accommodate your derrière without a lot of fuss. One last note on tops: finding slim styled tunics or shorter dresses paired with comfortable pants make for an interesting and body-flattering look. Eileen fisher comes to mind when I think of this style.
Cardigans are great friends of this body type. They do two things, they add detail to the top half while adding a layer over the bottom half. Choose high quality a line, trapeze and princess cut cardigans for the most flattering look. Why? Because it will look like you are adding a style element not covering your rear.
