Dressing Tips for Round Body Shaped Women

When you have a round shaped body shape, you might feel as if there aren’t any outfits that do your body justice.

However, all body shapes and types have their unique features that should be complemented.

With this body shape, your bust, waist and hips tend to have almost similar measurements. Because of this, round-shaped women usually have no waist definition.

The number one goal for women that fall in this category, then, should be to give the illusion of a waist.

These tips will give you a whole different outlook on fashion so that you can look great and feel great in your body!


Round shaped women should always go for tops that highlight the slimmest point on their bodies. This is often underneath their bust.

Tops with a V-neck help to highlight this feature, while breaking up the size of your chest.

Stay away from form-fitting tops and try more flowy styles.

Wrap tops also do a great job at cinching the wait and making it pop out.


When shopping for dresses, it’s important to sty away from very tight ones because they don’t flatter your body at all.

Dresses for this body shape should have their waistline just below the bust or at your thinnest point.

Wrap dresses are also a great option for giving apple shaped women a waist.

For skirts, structured pencil skirts work well, but keep them at knee length.

Make sure that any pleats of skirts start below the belly to avoid adding extra volume.


Although you probably have lovely slim legs, choosing a pair of skinny jeans is not always the way to go. This is because you might end up creating a top heavy silhouette.

Pants that have flared bottoms help balance out your heavy top with your legs.

Pants that have a side zip also go a great job in slimming out your waist because those that have a middle zip create bumps and make your tummy pop out.


Jackets and coats that are waist level are the best fit for round shaped women. They help in achieving your number one goal, which is giving you a waist line.

Choose tailored jackets that have a nice v shape at the top. Also, opt for a single-breasted rather than a double-breasted style.
