Hourglass Shape

The Hourglass is considered the ideal body type by many women. For women with this silhouette the bust and hip are approximately the same size, the waist is narrow, resulting in a set of very feminine curves. When dressing an hourglass figure, styles and fabrics that reduce bulk and prevent boxiness are ideal. Best choices are figure hugging shapes with volume in the right places, wrap dresses with a defined waist and shoulder details that emphasize this beautiful ladylike figure.
