Straight body shape
(sometimes called rectangle or ruler)
The hips and bust are balanced and the waist is not very defined.
- The key to dressing/designing for a Straight body type is to proportionally dress the top and bottom of the body while enhancing the waist.
- If consumer is comfortable doing so, she can wear form fitting clothing (such as a tube-type dress) and create a waist by adding a wide, dark belt.
- However, to create a more curvaceous effect add volume (or the illusion of volume) proportionally to the upper and lower body.
