Body Shapes - Apple

Also known as an upside down triangle shape. This body type is characterized by broad shoulders and chest relative to the waist and hips with slim legs and thighs. This figure suits styles that have a tapered silhouette since that follows the natural shape of this figure. Women with this figure should avoid ready to wear styles that emphasize the waist or have an A line shape. If this style is desired, a correct fit can be achieved by having something made, in which case this particular shape can be taken into account when the pattern is being drafted.
