In general, the oval figure has a rounded body shape that makes the body appear wider in the middle. It typically has heavy shoulders, a full bust, a bulging waist with little definition, and may or may not have wide hips. Oval body shape clothes that flatter the figure create symmetry by avoiding overloading the upper part, diverting attention from the central area, and using the lower part to balance the body as a whole. Look for uncomplicated garments made of light fabrics, with simple and open necklines, which do not have big and protruding embellishments at the waist so to avoid adding more volume to the upper part of the body. One of the best styles for this figure is the Empire style.
