Guide to Dressing Your Body Type with Our Line

Here at mod bod for every new line we always have something for every body type. We try to appeal to women of all different ages, shapes and styles.

Have no idea what body type you have? Have no idea where to start? Then hopefully this post will help start you in the right direction.

One of my favorite blogs is the Cardigan Empire; she really is the queen of style and the most knowledgeable person on how to dress for your body type. She has incredible style and helps women LOVE their body type. Just look at her fabulous badges you can proudly post on your sites. She offers a great guide on how to find your body type if you are not sure how!

All the outfits she puts together are fantastic and using mod bod to add another layer, making sure they are modest and cover enough, is the perfect addition.

We wanted to explain a little about body types and show you pieces from our Spring/Summer line that fit into these categories!

Pear: A-line skirts do a great job of hiding wide thighs. Choose light or bright colored tops and darker bottoms to draw attention to the upper half of your body and slim the lower half. Find and wear tops that are gathered or cinched right under your bust, in the middle and choose a blazer the buttons right below your chest so you draw attention higher not lower.

Perfect mod bod example: A-Line Skirt

Inverted Triangle: For this kind of body it is important to be able to balance your upper body with your lower body. To do this, you must de-emphasize the upper body and draw attention to your hips and legs. Stick to tops of darker color, simple designs and shapes; the best top is a classic V-neck. Work with pants and skirts that are brightly colored, have large prints or that make your bottom half appear wider.

Perfect mod bod example: Paper Sack Skirt in Green

Rectangle: Look for items that are tailored at the waist. The shirt, jacket or dress should nip in at the waist to create the illusion that your figure has the waist. Choose brighter colors at the bust line to break up your figure and make your bust look larger. Many shirts and dresses feature extra color or styling at the top. These can help you to instantly look curvier and less like a rectangle.

Perfect mod bod Example: Brandi Top

Hourglass: Don’t do anything to TAKE AWAY from your figure! Choose tops that define your small waist, don’t break up your curves and really accentuate your figure!

Perfect mod bod Example: Cowel Neck Top

Apple: Buy skirts and pants with flat fronts and avoid pockets, pleats and gathers near the waist. Be sure to emphasize those legs to create the illusion of length rather than width. Look for fabrics that skim your shape. Instead of dressing in clothes that are tight or clingy, buy flowing and tailored clothing and fabrics in simple designs.
