The Vase is very similar to the classic Hourglass body shape but stretched a little producing one of the most elegant body shapes. Generally Vases don’t have such pronounced small waists and have less rounded bottoms, which are the two differences that separate them from Hourglass ladies. With the longer frame and all those wonderful feminine curves, this body shape is a delight to dress but many Vases feel they are a tad frumpy with big boobs and chunky upper arms.
The key to avoiding this is to think of the old phrase “style never goes out of fashion”. This is not necessarily a body shape best suited to chasing the latest fashions and nor is it necessary to try – you already have one of the most feminine shapes so classic clothes for a real womanly woman are the way to go.
The large boobs that accompany the Vase shape should not be overplayed as this can lead to a feeling of plumpness, concentrate instead on the daintier areas such as the lower arms or legs by wearing three quarter length sleeves or straight leg jeans. In order to show off and accentuate your natural curves, jackets and tops that are fitted at the waist will add some contour around the middle taking your look close to the timeless Hourglass shape but with the extra elegance your high brings.
Keep away from:
Take a look at:
Pencil skirts with well tailored waists.
Supportive high glam dresses.
Fitted shirts with puffy three quarter length sleeves.
Vases are the body shape many women would love to be and you girls really have it made – just think classic style, keep the waist tight and the world’s your oyster!
