When hearing the term athletic build, sometimes an image of an ultra-bulked body builder comes to mind. The kind of body type we’re talking about here is one where the shoulders, waist, and hips line up creating, what can be called, a boyish figure. People with this body type may want to try creating the illusion of curves with their clothing.
Here are a few ways to accomplish this:

Curvy is a rather broad term and includes more specific body types like pear, apple, and hourglass. No matter what body type, never be afraid to flaunt those curves! Here are some ways to show off those fabulous curves with different clothing choices:

  • Layer semi-fitted, long tank tops or tees, such as our 60/40 Racerback Tank, under cropped jackets or cardigans that hit above the waist
  • Pair a lightweight top, like District’s® Microburn™ fabric, with a high waisted skirt
  • Stick to fitted v-neck t shirts, like our Tri-Blend or Vintage Wash V-Neck Tee

Tall girls, unite! Just like with any other body type, height is nothing to be ashamed of. Some of Hollywood’s most famous leading ladies tower over their male costars and totally rock it. So consider these basic fashion tips and remember… They all look great with heels!

  • If wearing oversized or baggy items, pair them with something a little more fitted. For example, our Textured Wide Neck Long Sleeve Raglan pairs great with leggings or skinny jeans
  • Long tank tops and tees work great for ladies with long torsos. For ladies with long legs, be proud and show them off with a fabulous pair of skinny jeans and heels!
  • Keep it simple when it comes to accessories. Choose just one item, or select more subdued accessories.
