Which dresses?

The empire waist dresses will enhance your silhouette. By being tightened just below the bust, the empire cut dress emphasises the décolleté and gives the illusion of a marked waist.

Which lingerie?

For your lingerie, choose undergarments that bring femininity to the shoulders and hips, and that redesign the buttocks. Bustiers and bras with lace and thin straps are essential pieces of lingerie for a guaranteed glamorous effect. For your panties, choose them with a wide cut to enhance your legs.

Which swimwear?

Bikinis or trikinis will fit you perfectly. For 2-piece swimming costumes, choose a triangle bikini top to break up the 'rectangle' side of your silhouette and a bottom with ruffles or knots on the sides to flesh out your hips. Find out more about swimming costumes for my H-shape silhouette.

Which devices?

The belt is a wardrobe must-have. For your H-shape silhouette, the belt should be worn loose on the hips and not tight at the waist so as not to draw attention to a waist that is not very pronounced or even non-existent. In terms of jewellery, the mid-length or multi-row necklace will be perfect to enhance your décolleté. Find out more about the devices to adopt for my H-shaped silhouette.
