Snippet on Apples

I’m an English apple .

Beware fanciful body shape descriptors.

‘Pear’ is not so misleading – it describes the bottom heavy. Advice for flattering styles depends on whether you’re long or short-waisted, have an indented waist or prominent high hips. But in general the shape is lower body dominant.

”pear”

But apples – this is used as a shape description in two different ways.

An American apple :

”red-apple”

Apple is used as a label for people who are upper body dominant.

An English apple :

”cox-orange”

Apple is used as a label for people who are midriff dominant.

So beware, if you are looking at advice for an ‘apple’ body shape, that it’s the right apple !
