Dressing an hourglass can vary greatly depending on whether you want to accentuate your curves or minimize them. If you want my advice, I say “accentuate them, baby!” Most women would kill for a perfectly proportioned hourglass shape; this girl included.
Here are my hourglass tips:
- Accentuate your waistline if you’re wearing a one-piece!
- Balance your top with your bottom. If you have ruffles on the top, you need ruffles on the bottom. If you have a bold pattern on the top, you need an equally bold pattern on the bottom. Especially be wary of your cut. If the top is a string bikini, the bottom needs to be the same. If your top is modest, your bottom should be as well.
And that’s really about it for hourglass!
If you have more specific body typing questions, I’m always willing to answer them. In fact, that’s my favorite thing. So just leave your question in the comments!
And in Tennessee it comes a lot faster!
I’m getting very excited for flip-flops, strappy dresses, sunblock, braided hair, and a trip to Tybee Island!!!
Two of my favorite things about this time of year: I get to make more dresses for my little Zo to wear, and I get to jog more.
It was just last June that I started my fitness adventure. (There is a small explanation on the Dream page of my website.)
I am in better shape now than I have ever been and the thought of more improvement excites me. I’m still a pear shape. The more I work out the more pear-shaped I get! My husband claims that it’s my hip bones that are large. I think he’s right. Plus, working out makes some parts smaller and other parts bigger, if you know what I mean.
Anyway, my point is that I’m excited. I’m so excited that I’ve already started thinking about all of the summer clothes I can wear. I’ve started thinking about all of the summer clothes that you can wear, too!
This week, I’m going to start working on posts for dressing for summer for different body types.
In the meantime you can check out my other summer wear posts here:
Have a great week!
You don’t have to be straight-laced just because you have a straight body. I’m here to give you some curves with some flare.
The first dress that I picked for you is fun and funky. It also gives you some shape in the hips, pulls some attention to your bust and divides up your torso with some sheen at the waist.
The second dress that I found has gathering under the bust to give you some shape there. It pulls in at the waist. The pleated skirt gives you some shape in the booty and lengthens the line of the leg.
High-waist anything(like these two dresses) looks great on boy shapes because it makes your legs look like they go on forever while breaking up your torso. But you have to be extremely careful with the length if it’s a skirt or shorts. Too short looks even shorter with a higher waist.

It’s wedding season! That means a lot of us are scrambling around looking for the perfect wedding gown.
Pear: Both of these wedding gowns have scoop-necks. It’s not necessary for a pear shape. That’s just what I found. Either of these gowns would work well without the scoop-neck. The first dress is great for narrow shoulders. The silver on the shoulders really brings the attention up there and away from the hips. The second dress has a great square shape to balance out an upside down triangle(big hips). I normally wouldn’t recommend a box on a triangle, but it still pulls in at the waist.
