    Hi Lauren, I'm a naturally very skinny person (5'5, 105lbs) and I find it difficult to dress in a way that makes me look more womanly. I like the shape of my boobs but they are small and disappear beneath most tops. I also have hardly any butt! I feel like a child in adults clothing sometimes. How can I dress to add the illusion of more curves and feel more womanly? Thank you :)

    I have done that for years. Nobody notices my wide waist because I dress to conceal it!!

    Hi Lauren, i have a broad shoulder + wide waistline, anytime i gain any sort of weight i notice (or shld i say pple notice) that i always look Big, even d littlest of weight automatically mkes me look Big and i truly hate it. Apparently it seems like d weight goes 2 my shoulders nd even widens my already natural Wide waistline. Pls lauren how do i fix this depressing situation. Am always so terrified 2 gain even d littlest of weight. Also pls is it possible 2 reduce my natural wide waistline?? thnks


    Thank you very much! I got my answer about determining my body type in this video. And how beautifully you explained! Thank you again !!

    I carry my damn weight in my chest and shoulders/upper arms. I HATE this about my body type…no matter how much weight I've lost that area has always been the biggest area.

    I know the basic tips to wear dark colors up top, V neck, more flared pants (even though it's hard to find that style in a skinny jean world). And belts to help give appearance of smaller middle section.

    Hey, Lauren. New subscriber!
    I'm a mother of 4 and in my 40's , I have a corp job but can dress business casual. I've recently started to build upon my wardrobe (lux shoes and handbags) but find it difficult sometimes to merge my apple body type with how young and edgy I feel… luv your videos!!!
