Body Types

Every woman is of course unique and beautiful. Although everyone gives their own twist on fashion and style, we can divide most people into five overarching figure groups. Using these figure types, we'll give some tips and tricks related to the King Louie collection and how to emphasize the strengths of the accompanying body types.

Body type A: the Anne

Women with this body type have relatively wider hips than their shoulders. The hips and thighs are on the broad side compared to the shoulders. Other characteristics of the Anne type are round buttocks, slender legs, a flat stomach, a visible waist and average size breasts.

Fashion tips for the A-line
- Emphasize the upper half of your body.
- Wear tight outer clothing
- Accentuate your waist and possibly reinforce it with a belt
- Wear short jackets (just above the hips)
- Keep the undergarments a bit more sober and simpler
- Wear pants and skirts with a high waist
- Wear pants with stretch

What should you pay attention to:
- Hip pants are not that flattering
- Try to avoid jackets with pockets on the hips
- Do not wear pants with pleats or pockets
- It is better to avoid cropped or culotte pants


Body type X: the Xena

A female body resembling a Xena has an hourglass shape with symmetrical shoulders and hips. In addition, a clear waist is visible and most ladies with this body have large(r) breasts

Fashion tips for the Xena type
Create smooth round silhouettes
- Focus on the waist
- Wear fitted clothing
- Wrap tops and wrap dresses look great with this figure type
- Bootcut, flared, and tapered pants are the best choices
- Wear blazers (with the buttons) closed  and put the accent on the waist

What should you pay attention to:
- Avoid clothing with a straight fit


Body type O: the Olivia

The Olivia figure is characterized by shoulders that are just as wide as the hips and a waist that is even wider. This figure type has a belly, a round back and often beautiful slender legs and full breasts.

Tips and tricks for the Olivia type

- Always wear blouses and tops over instead of tucked in a garment

What should you pay attention to
