3.23 My biggest style challenge is dressing for my apple shape–specifically for tops that don’t emphasize my muffin top and yet don’t look like maternity tops. Additionally, I am petite with narrow shoulders and shorter arms. Regular sizing rarely works for me, and petites are getting harder to find in the US. Even petite tops seem to be getting longer and longer, and I’m not a fan of tunics! I would consider myself a “classic” dresser and am print phobic, except perhaps for stripes.

I have a fashion problem I’ve been dealing with for a long time. Why do the shoulders always bunch up like this on me? I’ve never seen this happen to anyone but me. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1-5FTRld9_BUcRLink7Fx_zWiCkNrfQTO
Is it because my shoulders are too big for the garment or too small? Or maybe my shoulders are more rounded/sloped than unusual? (I think I might be a 8 shape…) I’ve added examples of the shoulders & also my full body shape for reference. Any help would be a Godsend!
Your shoulders are too broad – the seam should sit on the outer edge of your shoulders. You have a very square shoulder they are not sloped or rounded.
Thank you! This tip was immensly helpful. I read one of your posts about broad/square shoulders & it was very helpful. I’m think my shape is figure 8 / vase. But bc of the broader/square shoulders- I need to be more careful with A-line skirts, puffed sleeves, wide lapels, etc.
Do strapless tops flatter someone with broad, square shoulders? And sleeveless tops?
They may work – really depends on your unique body and arms – each person is unique
Thanks for sharing.
