Do I Have an Oval Shape?
Oval ladies have rounder middles, with less definition in the waist; If your bust, waist, and hips have similar measurements, you’re most likely an Oval.

What Looks Best On Oval Figures?

Those with oval shapes should choose styles that add emphasis to the waist. Items with tucks or pleating right under the bust help flaunt the smallest part of your torso, and wrap styles create the illusion of more curves.

Look v-necks and vertical center-line details. These help draw the focus upward, which creates an elongated effect.

Try shapes that are fitted around the bust and flow away from your mid-section for a curvaceous silhouette.
