How to wear trapeze shapes?

Does everyone here know what is a "trapeze" A line? Hmmm, i bet some of you don't. Well, trapeze is something that is tight on the bust and extends freely as it reaches the hemline. It does look like letter A. There are a variety of trapeze shapes - trapeze dresses, coats or blouses.

Stella Kae said it right that trapeze shapes can be a little intimidating when you are used with tailored styles. Thus, she provided some tips on how to wear trapeze.

If you have thick arms, wear a sleeved style, or layer over a t-shirt. If you're very busty, try a trapeze shirt or dress in a stretchy jersey with a scoop neck. If you're very thin or small chested, try a stiff trapeze shift dress or top with spaghetti straps. If you're very tall and find that trapeze dresses are a little shorter than intended on you, try layering up with some tight denim underneath. To avoid looking pregnant in this silhouette, avoid overly exaggerated trapeze garments with multiple layers.
