Short Waisted

Dress for your body type



When you’re short waisted, you should wear clothing that elongates your torso. Your goal is to visually lower your waistline and re-direct attention towards your face or legs.





What To Wear:


  • Go for mid length jackets and tops instead

  • Choose princess line styles to elongate your mid section

  • Wear a supportive bra to lift your breasts and define your waistline

  • Wear pants with a lower rise if you tuck in your top

  • Choose panelled skirts with low slung waistlines and strong vertical seams

  • Longer length tops and knee length A-line dresses

  • Choose matching rather than contrasting separates

  • Wear belts below the waist, to lengthen the line of your upper body

  • Low-waisted pants, hipsters and low-slung skirts

  • Vertical lines above the waist

  • Narrow belts at the hipline

  • Belts that match the color of your top

  • Deep V necklines

  • Jackets and tops that end below your natural waistline
