Helpful tips to consider when selecting a type of jacket

Female bodies and jacket types vary, but no one said it would be hard to find the right one. 

When trying clothing, we aimed to find pieces that fit our body shape perfectly, especially as women.  

The first thing you should know in the jackets field is that tight and proper sized don't have the same meaning.

Perhaps, the first one tightens the body and makes those uncomfortable rolls come out; the second refers to pieces that adjust perfectly to your silhouette.

Now, let's move forward! 

Here we have some suggestions to make your choice easy.

According to our body shape: 

  • If you are slim, the right thing to do is wear structured jackets with accessories. This will help the outfit give the sensation of volume and, thus, mark your shape.
  • If you have a chubby body shape, you should go for a sized-to-your-body jacket. Also, try to avoid decorations, so you don't get any extra volume. Finally, straight cuts are not recommended, and preferably, look for open-cut jackets from the waist to the hips.

According to height:

  • If you are a short person, the suggestion is to use jackets at the waist level.
  • If you are a tall person, the length of the jacket should reach the hips.

Choosing types of jackets according to our breasts and chest size

  • With little bust or chest: the ideal is the jackets with ornaments to give volume and oversized lapels.
  • With a lot of bust or chest: avoid jackets with decorations, details, or buttons around the chest area, as they will add more volume to your shape. Instead, grab one with a zipper. And, if you like lapels, it is advisable to go for a small size jacket.

Chose according to the neck length:

  • Short neck: if you have a short neck pick a jacket without a collar and preferably go for the zipper in the center ones and kept it open. It'll look great with your measurements.
  • Long neck: if you have a long neck, any jacket collar cut will do. Have fun!
