Dressing Your Apple Body Shape

Updated: Mar 1, 2023

Apple Body Shapes may also share characteristics with other body types, such as Strawberry, Oval or Inverted Triangle Body Shapes so this article is also applicable to ladies with any of these body shapes.


As a Personal Stylist in Geneva, Switzerland, I find that it isn't always possible to determine every body shape categorically. I use a fresh and flexible approach with my clients and I hope you'll appreciate this when you book in for a session with me. Until then, happy reading!


If you have broader shoulders than hips, tendency to carry weight around your waist area and wear a larger size on your top half than your bottom half, and perhaps a voluptuous bust too you likely have an apple / oval / strawberry / inverted triangle body shape. Great news 😍


Top Tips for Apple Body Shapes (also suitable for Strawberry, Oval and Inverted Triangle Body Shapes):


🌟 wear items with details / embellishments / patterns etc. below your waistline


🌟 keep it simple above the waist to avoid adding volume to this area and help create the impression of an hourglass figure


🌟 darker colours above the waist will absorb the light and draw attention towards your face and hands making you appear slimmer overall


🌟 lighter colours worn below the waist will attract attention and balance out this beautiful area of your body


🌟 jersey material on the top half can be forgiving over a fuller bust area too 😊


❓Do you have a Apple / Strawberry / Oval / Inverted Triangle body shape? If so, what wardrobe dilemmas do you have, if anything? ❓
