Shopping for styles that flatter your body type can be hard, but shopping for them as your body changes gets even more challenging. My girlfriends with varying body shapes and I recently complained about this since we are all going through physical transformations as we enter our mid-20s. I was somewhat baffled about their complaints because they all look fantastic. Their response? High waisted bottoms. Then it all clicked. High waisted bottoms look good on everyone.
For instance, when I was a “rectangle,” I wore high waisted bottoms because it created the illusion of a waistline, thus letting me be the hourglass I always wanted to be. Now that I’m a “pear” (due to a new butt and the “food baby” age has given me), this style of bottoms still provides that illusion, boosting my confidence in the way I look. With this knowledge, I am passing it onto you for the times you’re doubting which bottoms to rock. Keep reading to find your perfect match!
