New Body = Challenge

I used to know how to dress to flatter my body. Dresses with a belt to enhance my waist and give the illusion of longer legs. Tops with draping to hide bulges. And deep Vs to elongate my neck.

But how do I dress this new body of mine?

Weight loss progress

The picture on the right was taken a couple of weeks ago, while the picture on the left was taken the day before surgery. And I wasn’t even at my highest weight then! There is a huge difference, not only with the weight loss as such, but the overall shape and composition. I’m working out really hard and lifting weights. I have now strong, muscular shoulders and arms. My hips melted and there isn’t much difference between my waist and my hips measurement anymore. Still have a large chest, but I have to confess — I lost 5 cup sizes.

I think I’ll have to do a lot of researching the coming months. And probably go with trial and error. If you have suggestions though, please share!



  1. I really like Inside Out Style for advice and I think this is your shape to some extent:

    If you click the corresponding tag “I shape” at the end of the post, you can find the other articles related to that. Good luck!

      Ah, thanks so much! Both interesting links, I came across this website a few years back, very helpful. I think I’m a bit of a V (wider shoulders than hips), but there’s some truth in the I body shape too…

      I’ll go have a better look at the ebook 🙂
