J. Lo’s hips and famously round derriere plant her firmly in the pear-shaped category (her taut tummy only serves to accentuate both.) If a sparkly body suit, like Ms. Lopez’s New Year’s Eve outfit, isn’t quite for you, scroll on for wearable tips. Hint: It’s all about showing off your waistline.
A larger than life personality matches Barr’s traditional apple shape. A full bust and waist characterize this body type, often hearing the moniker "top heavy." Avoid frumpy pitfalls with a few fashion tricks (avoid detailed tailoring and try playing with proportion.)
Apple alert: The simple shape of this jacket works with the shape of the body, rather than awkwardly fighting curves.
