There are 4 main shapes to consider when looking at your body to help guide what to wear, they are: APPLE - Apple shape body types usually have slim legs and small butt, they usually carry extra around the waist. Perfect pair of pants for this body shape would be high waisted skinny's. When finding the perfect dress look for an Empire waist. 

PEAR - Pear shape girls are typically just like the hourglass figure with small waist while having bigger hips. Straight leg pants go great with this figure because it makes the leg look more slimming.
