Emphasize your Best Feature
by: Anonymous

I am a little over 5 feet and a size 10, which is about in the middle for my height. I could stand to lose a few pounds but I'm not obese -- a fit 145 lbs. I usually work out at least 3-5 times a week. I've got dense muscle. I wear the same size I did when I weighed 120 lbs and didn't exercise as much.

In my case, I think your solid color uniform with the statement jewelry works. However, I sometimes get bored with that. It is also good to find your best feature and emphasize it.

For me, my two best features are my bust line (just about the right size) and my thin rib cage area. My belly button area is a bit big. An empire waste silhouette is ideal for me, especially with a scooped or heart-shaped neck line.

Fashion these days allows versatility with belts. Petites should choose belts that are not too bulky. The belts can help me emphasize my skinny rib cage area.
