Find My Fit: Y-type by Annette

A woman with body figure Y is characterized by wider shoulders and bust compared to the hips. People with this figure usually have an athletic look with a well-developed upper body and a slimmer waist and hip area. When choosing clothing for this figure, it is important to balance the shoulders while emphasizing natural proportions.



  • narrow hips
  • broad shoulders
  • shoulders wider than hips
  • no really defined waist
  • often thinner legs, highlight them!


For women with a Y figure, it is ideal to wear clothing that shifts attention to the lower body to create more balance. A-line dresses and skirts can give the hips a little more volume. Pants and skirts with details such as pleats, pockets or prints near the hips can also help emphasize this region. Tops with V-necklines or boat necks can optically reduce the bust and subtly balance the upper body with the bottom.



  • ruffles around your neck
  • peplum tops
  • jeans with clear back pockets (clear stitching)
  • low waist jeans
  • v-neck tops
  • a-line dresses and skirts
  • shorts
  • chunky shoes and heels
  • high waists in pants, skirts, ...


  • baggy clothes, shapeless clothes
  • pencil skirts
  • spaghetti straps
  • 3/4 sleeves
