Do I have an Inverted Triangle Shape?
Ladies with Inverted Triangle shapes are wider at their shoulders and chests than at their hips.  If you usually wear a larger size on the top than on the bottom, you’re likely an Inverted Triangle.

What styles look best on Inverted Triangle body types?

Look for A-line skirts and dresses with flared bottoms to balance out your wider top half.

Peplum tops can add fullness to narrow hips and create the illusion of hourglass curves.

Avoid ruffles, prints, or bulky details at the neckline or bust — they’ll only add more fullness.

Try wrap dresses and straight-cut shifts. Wrap dresses create waist definition while shifts flow naturally from the shoulders creating a long line.

Printed skirts, flared pants, and embellished bottoms to draw attention downwards and help create balance.
