Hello Beautiful Friends!
Last week we covered style tips for the short-waisted and this week it’s time to give a shout out to my long-waisted ladies! Part of having great style is to dress according to what flatters your body shape.
How do you know if you are long-waisted? You have a relatively long torso in relation to your leg length. Measure from your underarm to your natural waist (narrowest part – above your navel). Next, measure your waist to your hip bone. If the measurements are about the same, you are evenly proportioned. If the first measurement is longer, you are considered long-waisted.
Check out my tips for dressing your long-waisted silhouette.
High Rise Bottoms
High rise bottoms will elongate your legs and balance out your proportions.
Tuck In Your Top
Tucking in your tops will also give you that more balanced look and elongate your legs.
flares or wide-leg bottoms are another way to lengthen your legs and add balance.
Cropped jackets might not seem like a solution for the long-waisted, but in fact, they are! It changes the look of your proportions.
If you are long-waisted you have extra real estate at the waist and you can rock a great wide belt to bring balance.
Many brands offer a tall or long option for tops just as many do for bottoms if you have long legs. I’ll share some great options for tops and especially bodysuits that can make things so much easier for you!
