Tips for looking slimmer for apple shape brides and mother-of -the- bride

Apple shape means the top part of the body is heavier than the lower portion. You must have heard of this figure referred as ‘top heavy’. Shoulders of this body type is wider than the hips, and this figure typically has a large bust line. The legs will be thin and mostly well shaped.

How to do it:

1. Wear V necks, which will balance your top body shape.

Empire line with V neck works well

2. Avoid short top, which will make you look square. Wear long top which can elongate your top half.

3. Wear well structured one button jacket to emphasis your waistline.
