Description

With bottom-heavy shapes, the hips or thighs are proportionally larger than the rest of the body. Amy counsels moving visual interest to the top of the sweater. “Choose designs that have colorwork, lace, or texture across the shoulders or bustline, and vertical or plain patterning at the hemline,” she says. Amy designed the Pinstripe Pullover specifically for bottom-heavy women. Comfortable and shapely, this sweater features eye-catching pinstripe details that emphasize the wearer’s neck, collarbone, and bustline. The pullover features a plain hem and vertical waist darts that can be easily customized for a flattering fit. The bottom line for bottom-heavy shapes: “Broadening and accentuating your upper body will balance
your figure and de-emphasize your hips,” Amy suggests.
