If you are blessed up top with a well-endowed bust and have a flatter booty with great legs, then you are an O body type.
Your main goal is to draw attention towards your beautiful face and fabulous legs to balance out your body type. Here’s how to achieve your best look!
Tops: The most important accessory to make all your tops fit their best is a properly fitted bra. This will make all the difference! When looking for tops, always fit the girls first so they have breathing room. Camisoles are a necessary staple as many tops will be too low-cut on you. Printed tops are fabulous on you as they minimize the bust. Jackets, such as swing jackets with three-quarter length sleeves, are wonderfully flattering on you. Chunky necklaces, dazzling earrings and stylish scarves (in your eye-catching pop colours of
course!) are fabulous ways to draw the eye upward to your beautiful face.
Bottoms: The style of your bottoms is important to properly balance out your upper body. Choose trousers that have just a slight flare to them, but not overly full or wide at the bottom to avoid looking boxy. Mid-rise jeans that create a straight line from hip-to-floor will balance your beautifully. Stick to relaxed fit or bootcut styles and avoid skinny or wide-leg jeans.
Dresses: Skirts or dresses that fall right at the knee will flatter your legs. A-line styles in a stiffer fabric are incredibly flattering on you as they accentuate your waist and flare out to balance your upper body-it’s a win-win! Wrap and sheath style dresses are also great silhouettes for your body type. Avoid high necklines and go for modest v-neck styles.
