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.

Choosing Jackets and Coats 

Jackets and coats are a bit of a challenge for top heavy body types for the same reason they are for finding shirts. I think you’ll find a single button opening will be much more forgiving then if you choose a jacket with two or more buttons.

Look for the button to land at your waistline as apposed to just under your breast and make sure the lapels stay flat. If you’re top heavy because of your shoulders have the shoulder pads removed.

How to Choose Pants for

The top heavy body type. Women with little or no derrières can use pants that have pleats in the front panels.

Just remember that pleats accentuate your tummy and sometimes your hips,

so if you have a small bottom but a bit of a tummy, either choose pants that only come up a little under your belly button (but not tight-don’t want a muffin top) or go with flat panels pant.

Pants that are a tad loose are a lot more comfortable. Pants that have pockets or any interesting embellishment on them can help create balance between your breasts and your derrière because details are where our eyes are drawn.

One more note on pants for top-heavy body types, don’t wear tapered pants because they will make you look more top heavy.

Think of a vase that is small at the bottom and gets larger towards the top, though it may be visually interesting on a vase it usually isn’t the illusion most women want for the bodies.  Choose stovepipes to flares for best your best look.

How to choose Skirts and Dresses

I happen to think skirts are the easiest of all clothing items to shop for. Skirts that are most flattering are those that have a flare to them or skirts that are bell shaped like an a line. Choose the width of the flare that will create the most symmetry.

Look in the mirror, does the flare look about the same as the widest part of your top half if it does perfect, but keep in mind that even a small flare can really give the illusion of balance.


Shirtdresses, shifts, wrap dresses, princess style and dresses with a drop waist are probably your best and easiest dress choices for top heavy body types. 

Don’t wear gathers if you’ve gained weight on your tummy. Halter dresses are good options too, just keep in mind that they can really accentuate your bust size if your not carful about the prints and the depth of the neckline.

I suggest you look for a halter dress where the back comes to the middle of your shoulder blades; this kind dress will give you more support.
