Top Heavy body type
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.
