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
