Body Proportions Explained – Long Rise
June 30, 2009 by 16 Comments
1. If you are proportionally like this, skirts can be your best friends – they hide where the legs start and we assume that your rise is shorter and legs longer. Drop waists can flatter.
2. Keep your tops a little longer, not all the way down to your crotch, but avoid cropped tops.
3. Empire tops flatter your shorter waist and bypass your long rise.
4. High waisted pants and jeans are best. You will find that lower waisted pants will pull down when sitting and often feel uncomfortable, as well as showing off your underwear, not classy.
5. Don’t tuck in tops.
