How to Dress According to Your BODY TYPE ✨💖

How to Dress According to Your BODY TYPE ✨💖

...Ever had trouble with clothes not looking flattering? 

It IS very tempting to buy cute clothes, but sometimes it’s tough to find the right size or cutting.

Before that, just a key reminder from me: All bodies are BEAUTIFUL. Buy the right clothes, because you are not meant to fit the clothes, the clothes are meant to fit you. 💕

Get to know your body type and find clothes on that fit you like a glove!

(With clothes that are not serving you anymore, donate it or sell it and get clothes that bring out the best in you. 😊 Looking for a place to sell your clothes? Try
