Tall woman

*Traditional bra and panty sets with a garter belt look great on tall women. It shows off one’s long legs and is considered a classic.

*Stockings to pair with the garter are a great asset to the lingerie set and can really accentuate your legs.

*Another choice is a long line bra and high-waist panties.

*A lace halter bra is also a classy option.

Athletic woman

*Athletic women look great in boy-shorts. You can wear just the boy-shorts for a teasing type photo or you can pick a cute bra to pair it with. Boy-shorts can really show off your backside. They add curves to an athletic figure.

Petite woman

*Wearing something with a slit over the leg will give you the illusion of longer legs.

*Racerback bralettes and T-strapped bras are the best option for you.

*Corsets and bustiers are a wonderful choice for you. They cinch your waist while pushing up your breasts to give you great curves.

Apple shaped figures (your waist is the largest measurement on your body with the bust line being smaller)

*One piece body suits with a deep V-neck look great on your body type.

*Long-lined corsets are a great choice for your body type too.

Pear shaped figures

*You want something that plays up your curves.

*Look for pieces that have ruching in the midsection as it breaks up the bust and hips while drawing attention to the waist curves.

*If you need to downplay bigger thighs, choose a flirty gown that covers them.

Ruler-shaped figures

*Corsets and bustiers are wonderful for you. They cinch your waist while pushing up your breasts to give you great curves.

Short torso woman

*If you have really long legs and a shorter torso, make sure you stay away from high waisted panties.

*Hipster and low rise bottoms are what look best on you.

Broader shouldered woman

*The best choice is a baby doll chemise or a nice slip as they will accentuate your broad shoulders. Look for ones that have a flared bottom because they help promote symmetry.
