T-shirts:

T-shirts must always be fitted. Otherwise, follow the rules for casual shirts.

Casual Shirts:

You can actually wear shirts that are cut to end at your hips. However, make sure that you have a very clear waist line. Don’t wear anything with a lot of embellishment or ruffles around the bust.

Blouses:

You want something very structured without puffy sleeves or ruffles. You can wear a blouse that is long enough to sit on your hips. Make sure to emphasize your tiny waist with a belt if you’re not going to tuck it in.

Sweaters:

Any plain sweater I like for Columns. Cable knit sweaters are good as long as the knit is vertical. Belts, when they can be used, are great for showing the world that you have a small waist.

Blazers:

Find some blazers with lapels that don’t draw a lot of attention to them. Jackets with a pulled in waist and big pockets are great. No pockets is fine, too, just make sure the waist is pulled in and the jacket either flares out from the waist or sits nicely on the hips.

 

Skirts and Mini Skirts:

Pencil skirts are great for your shape. They will put some much needed attention on your derriere. Tiered skirts, ruffled skirts, bubble skirts, cargo skirts or flared skirts are all great for adding a little shape to your booty.

Skinny Jeans:

I DON’T RECOMMEND SKINNY JEANS FOR ANY BODY TYPE.

That being said… skinny jeans do actually make your booty look bigger. However, they can also make your stomach look bigger, too. So, whatever you wear with your skinny jeans, make sure that you are cinching in your waist.

Jeans:

If you don’t have hips at all then you don’t necessarily need to worry about muffin top and can wear low-rise, mid-rise or high-rise jeans. Whiskering can make your hips to look wider, which is good for your body type. Bell bottoms can actually make your hips look wider, too. But be careful, because they can also make your legs look shorter. Straight leg jeans and bootcut jeans are great, too.

Pants:

Wear straight leg pants to draw the eye up to your booty. Mid-rise would be best, but if you want to go with high-rise it would bring some much-needed definition to your waist.

Little Black Dress:

You need a little black dress that goes over the bust without bringing much attention to it. It should pull in at the waist and go out from there. Another great LBD would be one that is fitted completely and brings some attention to your lower half with a belt around the hips or a stripe of color across the bottom of the skirt.

Rompers:

Look for rompers with wide leg shorts, ruffled shorts, or cuffed shorts to balance out your bust. You can also find a romper that has a pattern on the bottom, but a solid color on top.

ColumnSwimwear:

Whether looking for a one-piece or two-piece, wear brighter colors on the bottom. You need to draw attention to your bottom to balance out your top. What I love about picking swimwear for column shaped ladies is that you can find any sort of swimwear and add to it. Add a fun belt around the hips (or a sarong or a scarf). That tip goes a long way to balance out a bigger bust.
