which body shape are you?
It can sometimes be a challenge picking out lingerie for your body shape. The models wearing the lingerie don’t always depict YOUR shape. So, how should you go about picking out lingerie for your body? The first step is knowing what shape you have.
There are more shapes but at least now you have a good starting point. Here are some suggestions to enhance your figure based on your type:
Rectangle – Separate pieces such as a top, bottom, garters, stockings, outfits. Patterns to deter the eyes would also lend to the appearance of more shape. Try these: Diamond Net Striped Bodystocking or Lace Babydoll Outfit
Inverted Triangle – More material on the bottom half of the lingerie would trick the eyes to a “thicker” bottom half. Certain patterns may widen the lower half as well, evening out your shape. Try these: Bow Tie Bodystocking With Satin Lace Up, Lace Bralette and High Waisted Panty Set, Lace Bra Top and High Waisted Panty Garter Set, Mesh Flyaway Babydoll & G-String Set
Hourglass – Accentuating this kind of symmetry isn’t a trick, although you may not always want that “cling” in a lingerie. Try these: A Mesh Halter Neck Babydoll, Lace Up Satin Front and G-String Set, Mesh and Lace Chemise With Bow.
Fuller Figured Shapes – Include the Pear, Apple, and Orange. It’s all about misdirection, evening out the top and bottom, material choice and whether or not to choose a pattern. Eve’s Lair has a plus sized collection in most all of our lingerie!
- Pear – Lace Chemise With Floral Applique Under The Bodice, Off The Shoulder Lace Teddy to draw attention to and widen out the top half of this shape.
- Apple – To the knees or a flyaway style is good and evens the whole body. Try these: Flyaway Babydoll With Matching G-String, Tea Length Charmeuse Gown
- Orange – Try these: Deep V Mesh Gown and G-String. Of course who can resist the sexy sleep shirt? Charmeuse Satin Sleep Shirt.
