With our edition “Wardrobe Wows- wear your style” we are celebrating body positivity and all the beautiful women in the world. Here, we talk to team, The Closet Label and decode the perfect cuts that flatter body shapes we are molded in.
“I feel we cannot classify women, and Indian women more particularly, into straight jacket categories per se. Every woman is an individual and this individual person and her body shape is celebrated by team The Label Corp. But for the sake of perfect fits and finishes for all of us out there, Malaika Arora Khan, our tastemaker, our team, and I embrace all body shapes; apple, pear, hourglass, and athletic. We believe in being personal stylists to women who deserve to look unique and beautiful from dawn to dusk with pieces that take them from desk to dinner oh-so-effortlessly.” – Ms. Preeta Sukhtankar, Founder, The Label Corp.
Cuts to Flatter your Shape
Different body shapes require different styles. It all depends on how a woman carries herself in a look she feels her best in. The Label Corp. guides women with an in-house detailed body shape guide that has been made keeping in mind the Indian woman.
Apple: The narrowest point is just above the natural waist, and hence this shape is perfect to carry off a high-waisted skirt. This same skirt can be worn with a crop top to further accentuate the tiny waist.
Pear: The bottom and hips are fuller with a slightly smaller top. Hence shift dresses balance this shape most flatteringly.
Hourglass: Curvaceous with a full bust and defined waist. A wrap dress always does the trick to accentuate curves in all the right places. It focuses on a tiny waist but also draws attention to fuller hips and bust.
Athletic: Has a little definition between the bust, waist and the hips, and hence wearing a tee / tank top with a pair of shorts highlights a toned torso and long lean legs.
