Shop your Apple Shape. Women's choices for Plus and Missy apple shaped figures. The bust of the apple shape is generally the same size as the hip, and smaller than the waist. Fit and flare anything is a great profile for the apple shape. Flowy on top and fitted on the bottom achieves balance, but, again, the flowy part has to graze the body. Things that are cut on the bias are also great for this shape because it creates a garment that takes girth from where you don't need it, and puts it where you do without looking clingy or feeling tight. If you choose to wear a tunic, make sure it's cut higher in the center and hits above your knee. If it hits your knee or below, it's a dress, wear it without pants underneath.
