If you have one what do you wear and what do you suit?
This is my new shape since losing weight but I really can't figure out what suits me! Would love some inspiration. I have money to spend but no idea what on!

The no waist / apple thread might have some ideas? Congrats on weight loss and enjoy finding your new wardrobe!

Skinny jeans are your friend!

High waisted knee length pencil skirts with a top tucked in underneath are very flattering too.

You can pretty much wear anything!

I didn't realise there was a whole thread! Will see what I can find. Thanks

It's call the 'apple and inverted triangle thread' or, those with no waists grin

Founder speaking here.

It's difficult but can be done. Lots of shops design for your body;

I'm a classic straight up and down rhubarb.. I can wear pretty much anything but tend to avoid anything low cut as it displays my lack of cleavage!

Ruched is good as it gives a semblance of a waist and good fitted dresses to give me shape if I'm going out. I also avoid anything too baggy which swamps me.
