An inverted triangle body shape is where a woman appears to have broad shoulders wider than her hips. Such a woman may also have a large bust that stands out more than their lower body areas. Depending on the woman's body size, an inverted triangle woman may have a tiny waist or may appear to have a fuller waist area and somewhat fuller bottom. But the primary focus for this type of body is the shoulder area, which is more expansive.
How do you dress inverted triangle body shape?
Go for A-line dresses
An A-line dress is perfect for an inverted triangle body. An A-line dress looks like a straight triangle while your body looks like an inverted triangle. So, the dress, in a way, compliments your body to create a body illusion that balances the top and bottom areas. This kind of dress will give you a broader bottom and a defined waistline.
Choose bridesmaid dresses with flare and fitting style
In most cases, such a bridesmaid dress should have a good fit at the top and a flare at the bottom to widen the hips. A fitting top will accentuate those broad shoulders or bust while narrowing your waist.
Choose midi pleated dresses
Dresses made with pleats are known to create a wider illusion around a woman's hip. Therefore, incorporating pleated bridesmaid dresses and probably reaching the knee length will make your body appear well defined with wide hips and a tiny waist.
