The easiest way to achieve so is by layering, as it will take the gaze off your wide top. Choose tops and dresses that highlight your well sculpted bottom, for example, empire line tops or dresses, tee shirts that have a falling shoulder or cowl neck tops. Indulge in some bootleg and flared trousers to get a wide bottom illusion and make up for the cleavage.

A proportionate body with well-defined curves on top and bottom enables them to dress in a versatile way. However women with an hourglass figure can use bold prints for an increased sex appeal.
