Ideas, Tips & Tricks

Find Your Shape

Knowing your body shape is the key to finding the perfect costume that not only makes you feel comfortable, but also shows off your naturally beautiful features. Most women fall in to these five basic shapes listed below. Don't fret if you feel that your body isn't represented here; just choose the shape that you feel best matches your assets.

Apple Shape Body Type

"Apple Shape" ladies carry most of their weight through their midsections.

Empire Waists

Tops or dresses that have a seam just under the bust will detail the smallest part of your torso and flow smoothly over any trouble areas.

Structure

Layer structured pieces, such as jackets and corsets, to help shape your waist. Use heavy fabrics that will hold their shape and provide additional support.

Feminine Details

Use loose and easily-draped fabrics at the neck line to add feminine touch to structured pieces.

Skirts

Show off your shapely legs with asymmetrical skirts, pencil skirts, or straight leg pants.

Avoid: Waist-cinching tops that will add volume to your tummy and draw attention away from your great legs.

Inverted Triangle Body Type

"Inverted Triangle" gals carry most of their weight on their upper body.

V-Necks

Break up wide shoulders with deep V-neck tops and dresses. Use dark colors and clean lines on your top half to avoid adding volume to your look.

Seamed and Drop Waists

Create the illusion of feminine hips with the flowing fabrics and gathered seams worn just below the natural waist. Peplums are a great way to get a nipped-in look for your waist.

Full or Flared Skirts

Balance your body with ruffled seams and mermaid silhouettes. Skirts that gently flare out at the waist and flow softly over hips will create movement for feminine curves.

Avoid: High necklines, such as crew or turtlenecks, which create visual bulk on your upper body. Also, high-waisted bottoms will cut your torso awkwardly, creating an out-of-proportion look.

Pear Shape Body Type

"Pear Shape" women carry more weight on their lower body.

Wide Neck Tops

Use off-the-shoulder, boat, scoop, and V-neck tops to help create the appearance of broader shoulders and a balanced lower half. This will help achieve that hourglass shape.

Fitted Tops

Show off the trimmest part of your body with tops that have bright colors and feature fitted waists.

Layers

Structured jackets and lightweight cardigans will add definition to your shoulders and nip in your waist.

A-Line Skirts

Choose skirts that flare out from the widest part of your body. This will highlight your trim waist and flow over your curves for a feminine look.

Avoid: Oversized tops that have no shape or structure. Clingy fabrics on the bottom will over emphasize your lower half.

Column Shape Body Type

"Column Shape" gals carry their weight evenly throughout their torso.

Layers

Create dimensions and added curves with lightweight fabrics which drape softly over trouble areas.

Open Neckline

Boat neck or off-the-shoulder neck lines will attract the eye upward to your face and balance the fullness of your torso.

Belts

Tops that nip in at the waist or are belted help to accentuate your bust and create more curves. Ensure that you are defining the smallest part of your torso, which is usually under the bust at the rib cage.

Straight Bottoms

Use skirts and pants that flow gently from the widest part of your waist. This will elongate your legs and flow over your tummy. Also, patterns and dark colors will help lengthen your lower half.

Avoid: Clingy or tight styles. Also, garments with harsh lines will make you look overly structured.

Hourglass Shape Body Type

"Hourglass" figures are evenly proportioned on the top and bottom with a defined waist.

Wrap Styles

Wrap tops and dresses flatter your defined waist and glide over hips and bottom for graceful movement.

Tailored Tops

Use the structure of jackets and button-down tops to accentuate your waist. Corsets and belts also help to draw attention to your natural curves.

Skirts

Pick skirts and dresses that hit at the thinnest part of your leg for a long lean look. This is generally just below the knee or right at the ankle. This trick creates the illusion of thinner legs.

Avoid: Bulky and shapeless garments. They will hide your natural curves and make you look boxy.

Know How to Take Your Measurements

The final element before ordering your costume is to know your measurements. Costumes vary in sizing from regular clothes and may not match your normal jacket or pant size. Unless the costume is meant to to be skin tight, you should choose a size that allows room to move. (And groove!) To ensure maximum comfort, give yourself three to four added inches for movement. Don't be discouraged if you need to order a size or even two up from your usual size - this is common! For example, if your chest measures 40" and the size you are looking to purchase has a measurement of 42", it may be a bit snug. When in doubt over picking between two sizes, choose the large one.
