Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all wear those clothes that models wear and look good in every single one of them? Thing is, we’re not all the same. Just because a certain outfit looks good on a model, doesn’t mean it will look good on everyone. We all need to find the styles that will work well with our body type.
Fortunately, finding the right outfit is now easier with Monroe And Main. Monroe And Main is a resource for helping women confidently dress to fit their style needs, balance their shape, and flatter their figure no matter the age. Monroe and Main clothing fits various body types in size 6-24 or S-3X.
They gave me a “How to Dress Your Body Type Kit” which includes a Monroe and Main measuring tape, plus a $185 Monroe and Main shopping spree for shapewear and an outfit. In dressing for our body type, it’s important for us to check our actual measurements. Sometimes we feel like we’re a certain shape because that’s how it sometimes looks in the mirror. But we have to realize that our shape changes as time goes by so it’s better to be sure and see the actual numbers so we can correctly identify our shape.
Measuring my body, I found out that my body type is triangle because my hips have the widest measurement. This reminded me of the time when I was in college and one of my friends told me I’m all hips. So I guess my shape hasn’t changed even though my size and weight have definitely changed.
Now as soon as I found out my body type, I had to check on the right shapewear.
Shapewear is something we all need. I know that nobody’s perfect and there’s probably one or two areas that need controlling in our bodies. And the reason why I chose the Braless Body Suit Shapewear is that it provides control for my tummy area and my thighs. Monroe And Main offers 16 shapewear products so you can choose the best one that will give you the control you need.
And now for the outfit! According to the guide, I need to wear outfits that draw attention to my upper body. I need to place visual weight on my shoulders with eye-catching prints and bright-colored tops, and wear dark pants. This helps me balance out my silhouette. Given this information, I chose the Bateau Neck Ruched Top and the Sailor Pant.
The Bateau Neck Ruched Top draws more attention to my upper body because of its color and its shape. The ruching on the tummy area also helps in making that area look smaller than it actually is. The black Sailor Pant, on the other hand, keeps my bottom half dark so that it doesn’t attract too much attention.
I added a long necklace to the outfit as well as a pair of dangling earrings to keep the attention on that area. I really loved the outfit I received from Monroe And Main! The items I received were well-made and felt very smooth against my skin.
