When dressing for your specific body type, you're often told to minimize this and emphasize that to look your absolute best. Right?

You carry more weight around your hips and thighs and are slimmer up top, so it's best to look for pieces that move away from your bottom and accentuate your upper half.
You have broad shoulders and are slim or straight between your waist and hips, so try pieces that balance out your upper half while creating depth down low.
Your figure is striaght up and down. Add volume all over to create more of a shape.
Your waistline is your widest measurement, so you don't want to necessarily define your waist, because your bust and hips are narrower. Think drop waists.
You're curviest at your thighs and have a full bust, so emphasize your best asset—your waistline!
