Do you have a well-defined waist and very pronounced breasts and hips? Then you probably have an X-shaped body. Read all about which fashion styles suit you best here.
Women with X-shaped bodies have plenty of feminine curves. The X shape is usually defined by a large bust size and a curvaceous hip area. The narrowest part of the body is the middle, where the waist is particularly well defined.

Which fashion best suits an X-shaped body?
In general, women with an X-shaped body can wear anything! It is a good idea to highlight your small waist. You can do this with fitted tops and dresses as well as pretty belts. They automatically draw the eye to the center of the body. Flared skirts also accentuate this area and conceal wide hips—especially if they have a particularly high waist.
Emphasize the waist with a high waistband
A wrap-around look flatters your X-shaped body
If you like shirt blouse dresses or want to wear other dresses and longer tops, you can spice them up visually with a belt! This allows you to really show your waist in its best light.
Belts also work well with jackets and coats
X-shaped bodies go perfectly with all trenchcoats and other coats with a tie belt! The length of the coat is not important. As well as elegant jackets, we also have a range of functional jackets with a focus on the waist, e.g., with a drawstring in the middle of the body.
What to avoid if you have an X-shaped body
Try to avoid boxy, straight fits if you have an X-shape. Your feminine curves should be highlighted! Avoid styles that hide your waist like oversized shirts, wide blouses, and tunics. If you do opt for a wide top, show off your waist with a belt or choose a top with an integrated drawstring.
Rigid fabrics without any movement create straight lines and thus hide your curves. It’s best to avoid these.
