Flattering fit for short rise body build

For a flattering fit, wear styles that fit attractively and lengthen the appearance of your rise (waist-to-hip area). What works:
  • Tops with vertical lines and patterns below the waist
  • Tops and dresses with high waistlines (empire)
  • Skirts and dresses worn at any flattering length
  • Narrow belts, or pants and skirts with vertical lines or patterns
  • Pants with drawstring waistlines or wide waistbands that can be altered to remove the extra fabric in the rise
  • Swimsuits with adjustable shoulder straps to allow for length adjustments.

What doesn't work: Styles that hang below or visually shorten your rise make your torso appear shorter and look unflattering.

  • Tops that are short or have horizontal lines or patterns below the waist.
  • Pants, shorts and swimsuits with horizontal stripes or patterns in the rise
  • Pants with detailed waistlines, hemlines or cuffs that can't be altered to provide a better fit in the rise without ruining the look
To know your body type is one important key to dress your best. If you have a question, do not hesitate to contact me, it will be my pleasure to be of service to you.
