"It's THE perfect silhouette par excellence with a chest the same width as your hips and a slim waist like Monica Bellucci or Laetitia Casta. You are luscious and feminine as you wish”, explains Virginie Fauconnier, stylist.
To sublimate its advantageous forms, the morphology in 8 can favor close-fitting dresses. Preferred models? "Tight dresses, wrap dresses, empire dresses or even belted dresses," advises the expert.
“Avoid dresses that are too baggy or shapeless, which will tend to fatten you up and hide your figure,” notes the specialist.
It refers to an hourglass shape. The waist is marked and the shoulders aligned.
“The advantage with this silhouette is that all the dresses fit you. And some even more than others, such as, for example, V-neck dresses that will highlight your chest, short dresses that will lengthen your legs or sheath dresses that will give you a mermaid silhouette,” explains Virginie Fauconnier.
"Don't fill your closet with straight dresses or turtleneck dresses that will tend to hide your figure," she advises.
“It is surely one of the most popular silhouettes. Your shoulders and upper body are thinner than your hips and you have pretty feminine shapes. Perfect, you're like Jennifer Lopez or Eva Mendes,” says the stylist.
“Think flowing dresses, trapeze dresses or even strapless dresses that will highlight your assets,” she advises.
“Ban off dresses with big prints that will inevitably fatten you up or dresses that are too tight and that won't form a harmonious silhouette”.
“Keira Knightley, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Nathalie Portman, so many lovely women who have this morphology. You are slender and thin with few curves. We must therefore bet on ultra-femininity”, deciphers the expert.

“This silhouette where the upper body is more square with slender and long legs is often that of sporty women like Laure Manaudou, Zoe Saldana or Cameron Diaz. Your asset:your legs! »

“Be careful, avoid dresses with shoulder pads which will only accentuate your shoulders and make you look like Schwarzenegger. Likewise, forget about unflattering strapless dresses for your figure,” she warns.
“You are luscious and curvaceous. You are round with a certain harmony since it is distributed over the whole body. The goal of the game will be to highlight your strengths, like your chest,” she explains.
“First dress to adopt:the famous little black dress, which refines the silhouette. Also think about straight dresses that will “unify” your silhouette or even polka dot or patterned dresses for an absolutely charming retro side,” explains Virginie Fauconnier.
