The waist measurement on apple shaped bodies is generally the largest measurement with the bust and hip measurements coming in smaller. The bust and hip measurements on apple shaped women will be close to the same. Whether you are a Missy apple shape, or a plus sized apple shape figure, the formula will be the same. A-line anything, flaring from the armpit toward the hemline 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.
