Apple Shape

If you have a bigger torse and your upper body is heavy but the legs are thin, you should go for tight leggings. However, you should pair it with a loose tunic. These leggings will complement your thin and long legs and tunic will compensate for the wider upper body.

Women with apple shape body need to wear leggings that allow them to keep the focus on their legs. For this reason, we recommend that you wear printed leggings. For example, Cosmolle has tie dye leggings which will capture attention and keep people’s eyes away from the heavy upper body.
