Body Type V
Body Type V is characterized by broad shoulders, sometimes large bust, and narrower hips. The waistline may or may not be apparent.
Objective: To create a balance between the narrow hips and broad shoulders by reducing the upper body and increasing the hips and thus creating the illusion of an hourglass figure. It is important to emphasize the most slender part of this body type – the legs.
Examples of celebrities with body type V:
THE UPPER BODY – Broad shoulders will benefit from a darker color, e.g. a top with a darker shoulder and chest part and a lighter waist. Deep V-necks, sleeveless or long-sleeved fitted styles are preferable. Tight-fitted or empire-cut blouses with a freely flowing fabric, and fitted hip-length jackets are a good choice. Dresses should be of s simple cut, with a raised waistline. Well suited are dark raglan sleeve blouses and dresses.
NECKLINE – A deep V-neck helps break the wide chest.
BELT & ACCESSORIES – Light colors, and flowing fabrics should be used on the waist. Belts are best worn below the waist on the hips. Necklaces should be at least waist-length. Big bracelets will also help emphasize the hips.
THE LOWER BODY – Long, body-hugging, light, and embellished skirt draws attention from the broad shoulders to the hips. Hip cut pants, and wider pants that are tight-fitting at the waist, and fall loosely from the hips, add volume. Low-or medium-waist pants with wider leg part and pockets on the thighs are flattering.
SWIMWEAR & BIKINI – The cut of the swimsuit and bikini should create the illusion of smaller shoulders and balance out the lower part of the body. The best option is halter neck top and frilly bottom.
THE UPPER BODY – Avoid funnel-and puff-sleeves, and light colors at the top. As well as, narrow sleeves or spaghetti-straps, that make the shoulders appear even wider. Sleeves that end on the bust line also make the upper body appear larger. Boat neckline, horizontal stripes, and shoulder pads should be avoided.
THE LOWER BODY – Dark tight pants and skirts of heavy fabric.
