Dressing for your Body Type: Rectangle

Heya fellow Lolis! I'm back again with another body-type and a few tips for you. Now I want to say this again, until its ingrain into your frill-filled loli brains: no matter what shape/ type your body is, that does not mean that is it not beautiful and that does not mean we CAN'T work with it! We are all beautiful in our own way, and I know for a fact that everyone can wear Lolita and look good, it's just a matter of making sure we dress for our body type!

Now, today were going to work on the "Rectangle Figure". Don't know if that means you? Here is what a "Rectangle Figure" is usually considered to be:
  • Your full bust and hip lines are about the same.
  • You have very little to no waist definition
  • You may have a smaller-medium bust
So to dress for your Rectangle figure you are going to want to dress by accentuating your shoulders, or your waist, what we are going to attempt to do is give the illusion of curves. 

In Lolita I recommend wearing Medium to High necklines, doing so will help to accentuate your shoulders. I also recommend wearing a typical A-Line style Lolita dress, what this is going to do is glide down the straighter sides for your body and at the beginning of your hips the skirt will bell out, giving the otherwise straight sides of your torso a shape.

A-Line dresses are another very classic Lolita silhouette, wearing either a JSK or OP with an A-Line silhouette with a short or long sleeved blouse with a high neck line, and of course knee highs and a cute pair of shoes will help to complete this coord! Remember not to slack when it comes to hair and make-up either, if you're putting all this effort into your outfit why not style your hair and throw on some make up to complete the look?

As always thanks for reading, next time we we will be covering one of the more typical Chubby Lolita body types, the Oval Figure.
