What You Should Buy From Zara According to Your Body Type

With the vast amount of inventory that Zara maintains at any given time, it should come as no surprise that there's a slew of options for every body type. The tricky part is knowing what your body type is and what flatters it best. Luckily, we've covered this very subject in the past and used this handy body type guide to sift through the hundreds of items that Zara currently has in stock in search of the most flattering, stylish pieces for each of the four major body types: triangle, rectangle, hourglass, and inverted triangle. We've also sprinkled in a few tips along the way that should help you when searching for future Zara purchases on your own.

TRIANGLE

You're a triangle if your hips are more than 5% bigger than your shoulders or bust. This body type is also known as pear. Find out how to do the maths here.

Our Triangle Picks:

Opt for outerwear that has volume and hits below the widest part of your hips for a slimming effect. 

An empire-waist dress accentuates your figure right where you need it to.

Puffed, ruffled sleeves draw the eye up and away from the hips.

RECTANGLE

You're a rectangle if your waist is less than 25% smaller than your shoulder or bust, and your shoulder, bust, and hip measurements are within 5% of each other. Find out how to do the maths here.

Our Rectangle Picks:

A skirt with a bit of volume adds shape to your hips, which balances out your frame.

Create shape with a waist-emphasizing jacket or blazer. 

Flared trousers add interest and balance out your shoulders.

HOURGLASS

You're an hourglass if your waist is at least 25% smaller than your shoulder or bust, and at least 25% smaller than your hips, and your shoulder and hip measurements are within 5% of each other. Find out how to do the maths here.

Our Hourglass Picks:

Accentuate your curves with a slit pencil skirt. 

A wrap blouse is an hourglass's best friend, as it shows off your tiny waist.

A sheath dress with a defined waist is the most slimming option for an hourglass figure.

INVERTED TRIANGLE

You're an inverted triangle if your shoulder or bust measurement is more than 5% bigger than your hip measurement. Find out how to do the maths here.

Our Inverted Triangle Picks:

A jacket that flares out slightly at the waist is a surefire way to balance out your shoulders. 

A full skirt is another way to balance out your shoulders and create the illusion of a waist.

A subtle peplum is flattering for an inverted triangle shape as it adds volume at the hips and defines your waist.
