If your shoulders, waist and hips fall roughly under the same measurement marks, then you’ve got a straight or an athletic body type. The goal now is to play up your assets with styles that flaunt your frame. To enhance the minimal curves you have, go for suits that have interesting cut-outs and low-coverage bottoms that will create the look of a plump derrière. Also, suits with bold prints, ruffles and embellishments are your best bet when it comes to creating a fuller look. The added intrigue from busy designs adds dimension to straight figures. 

To make shopping easier for you, here are our picks:
