Picking the right coat for your figure

By Paul Snelling Subscribe to RSS | January 30th 2012 | Views:

A coat is one of the most important items in your wardrobe, and getting it right really does matter. After all, you can’t hide your coat under any more layers – it’s there for the world to see. This means you need to choose women’s coats to flatter your figure. Luckily, help is on hand to help you do this. Read on for some tips on picking the right women’s coat for your figure.

Tips for petite ladies

If you are relatively short (under five feet five), you are most likely classed as ‘petite’ and it is important that you take this into account when choosing your perfect coat. For instance, if you wear a coat that is too long, it will swamp your figure and make your legs look short. This means that shorter women are usually advised to choose coats that are no longer than knee-length. This helps to make your legs appear longer and shouldn’t swamp your figure, either.

With this in mind, if you are very petite, it’s also worth being careful about the style of coat you choose. Too much fabric or not enough structure in the design could easily leave you looking lost and overwhelmed; tailored coats that fit your figure perfectly are generally a good option.

Tips for curvy girls

If you have a curvy figure, you are likely to want to make the most of your waist. For this reason, look for women’s coats that are tailored to nip in at the waist, or that come with a belt you can tie to emphasise your curves. You might also like to look for coats that have slightly padded shoulders so that your curves are balanced out.

However, if you have broad shoulders, you are generally advised to avoid shoulder pads and instead go for women’s coats that have deeper armholes and v-necks. This helps to create more balance in your figure. V-neck coats are also a good option for women who have larger busts, as if the neck of your coat comes up too high, it will make you look top heavy. Instead, opt for single breasted coats that taper down to your waist.

Tips for athletic figures

For women with more athletic figures, when it comes to choosing your perfect coat, it is often a good idea to go for ‘princess-shaped’ coats, as these will add more shape to your body. Seamed bodices are also a good option for giving yourself more shape and, if you have got a small bust, it’s a good idea to look for coats that have details on the upper half that give the illusion of shape. For example, pockets and wide lapels are good options, and if you go for a coat that pulls in at the waist, this will make the most of your curves.

If you are someone who is both short and slim, then like women who are petite, you should avoid overly long coats and instead go for something shorter so you can make the most of the length of your legs.
