This is a common body type among Indian women - it means your hips are larger than your bust and your waist is not too small, and gently slopes into your hips. The more silhouetted styles of tops look very flattering with this body type, because a stiffer neckline defines your shoulders well. This balances the upper half of your body against the width of your hips. And a cut out back is an excellent idea for adding some drama!
Having a straight body type means that your waist is slightly smaller than your bust and hips - both which are more or less the same size. Well-fitted cropped tops with a high neckline work great for such bodies because they amply show off your waist, while also accentuating your breasts in a not-scandalous way - giving you all the curves you need to rock your ensembles!
… With a swell fitted long top! Considered the epitome of beauty for many centuries before the 20th, the hourglass figure means having a bust and hips of basically the same size, and a well-defined waist, which is narrower than both the bust and hips. A halter neck fitted maxi top can do wonders for such a body type by showing off the collarbone and the bust and accentuating the curve of the waist at the same time.
Stay stylish, ladies!
