i surely did stop buying everything i like for once and paid attention why most of my clothes dont fit me after i buy them. the truth is when u try in the shop; if u like it, its more likely that u buy it so u wont regret looking back at it. but if you know how they fit and how they most fit, u wont get fooled easily. thank u so much Justin for every lesson u teach, they are money saving.

I love your channel. You are very talented and are a lovely person. I have learned a lot of little things about clothing, fabric, French clothing, etc. from you. Thank you for sharing so much with us! Two things: what do you consider to be the difference between hourglass and curvy? This seems to have changed over time where clothes labeled “curvy” used to be more for a waist substantially smaller than bust/hip, but now I find clothes with this often have a huge waistline, almost like maternity clothes. It’s very frustrating in terms of finding clothes but I think it is part of the body positive movement to make a larger waistline sound more attractive, so it is kind. Second: I genuinely appreciate your notes on proportion for petite figures. Hourglass petite is especially challenging. I also live in a very cold climate, and the idea of a short coat isn’t practical. Remember petites are smaller and we will get cold faster! I would say a smooth outside line (avoid giant quilting on the outside) and beautiful shapes is important. Also diagonal closures are somehow very flattering. Large boots with slim/skinny pants and hats with giant Pom poms can allow you to play with proportion and get a lovely look is hard to attain for average and larger size women to attain. Analyzing Asian fashion is helpful for ideas, but only a small fraction of those looks will be great on a curvy figure. Asian models tend to have a very slim, straight, flat line to their bodies, and they can do a lot of super cool things with draping that won’t look as flattering on other body types.

PLEASE, Justine could you please create a video how to choose clothes to make shoulders bigger. Especially for hour glass that put on a bit of weight and hips are fuller and needs to bring shoulders to hips size. Are padded shoulders still on? What about designs that make shoulders look bigger than they are?

One thing I would add if anyone wants a belted coat - big sweater underneath makes you look a bit shapeless :(

Hi, I'm from Colombia, it's been just 3 weeks since I moved to France because my husband is from Toulouse, it's been very difficult to learn about clothes in winter and I've appreciated this video, I wonder if you can recommend us brands of wool coats, I've searched by many physical stores and online and I could not find something suitable. Thank you
Losshe (3 months ago)
I'm petite but very slim with a body measurement of 31-22-32 (would you consider that hourglass or reversed triangle?) And I find maxi or below the knee length very flattering on me. I would say petite can rock the long coat look as long as it's not too oversized and the sleeves aren't too long
Lidia Gospodinova (3 months ago)
Merci, Justine! Very informative video as always! I prefer long a-line coats with a belt. I have a pear-shaped body with overweight curves! 😉

I wonder Jastnie, if you can give advice to me  I am petite woman 163 sm ,i bought a new coat for fall and it is lenth until knee When I am wearing short boots almost as shoes on little heels I think it is non proportional I didi photo and think about correction of something.Also this coat is rounder on the back than in front It seems that I see shorter legs or may be that just a picture made like that.

If I can close it over my boobs - it’s a good coat. Can’t afford to be picky with these babes in front...

Tall hourglasses are so underrepresented! I would say that a straight jacket would be a disaster for my body type. Unfortunately, anything that isn't belted makes our bodies look bulky and bigger than it is. It is paramount for me to wear garments that are cinched at the waist so I could look sleek, or else I look and feel so uncomfortable.

How can you tell if a coat fits you properly? Should you always buy a size up? :-/ *please make video on this* its getting cold :(

Hi Justine, thank you for your videos, they are very useful!:) When autumn/winter is coming I always have trouble to choose a right shoes/chalse boots/boots + trousers... I have average long leg, but I feel that they look much shorter in those kind of shoes. Do you have in mind a video with this topics???:) "How to make your legs look longer in winter?" :)
cream (6 months ago)
I think I am a rectangle to hour glass but i'm also petite. so it kind of makes me an inverted triangle because when people look at you from above, your shoulders tend to look wider and legs shorter.

Please do clothing tips for us older women: 60+. Our bodies have changed against our will, lol!

This is the first video of yours that I am questioning - I'm pretty petite, and I live in Asia, where everyone is petite, and pretty much everyone rocks lovely long padded coats that make them taller and thinner while /also/ being warm. I have noticed there's a science to it though, (the coat has to be JUST long enough, like mid-thigh or calf length for an open coat) and that the shape of the coat really matters. So I think it's wrong to say that petite women can't be fashionable and warm.

I actually feel that biker jackets look best on Apple or rectangle shapes, women with narrower hips. Pear women look best with trench coat that emphasizes waistline and skims over hips
csenuber (6 months ago)
For Canadian/Scandinavian winter you have to cover your ass area. No flimsy biker jackets (which is considered fall outwear) would do.
JanasFreiheiten (6 months ago)

Margit Edwards (6 months ago)
I have a question about body types...or rather the angle from which we view body types....So most of the drawings and descriptions of body types are from the front facing position...and not from the profile. So my question is, what if from the front view one is rectangle, but as soon as you turn to profile, you have butt/hips and bosom that make it possible that you are an hourglass...this is my case. Very often from the front, I look as if I am a rectangle, because I have even measurement between shoulders, waist and hips, but turn to the side and I have all kinds of bosom, and butt that sticks out to the back and not to the side...

During heavy winter my body type is "It's freaking cold outside" and I wear the warmest, longest coat I can find. Always a size up, so it can fit my clothes underneath.

Hi Justine! Thank you for your videos. Your channel is what I searched for a long time . I have a question about pear figure. Can you give an example of coat that is below the hips I have this type and I'm feeling more comfortable when it's hide the hips when it's cold, but I really don't like how my coat fit on me.

I ve been watching you since September and you are so true and unique and i love the way younexpress your opinions. I have a question which one line store do you recomend me for a coat considering im a petite 1,52 and 42 kilos? Please answer me because i wear the same one for 3 years! Thank you! Greeting from Greece
Carissa Simple (1 year ago)
Such great advice! I’m in Canada and just got the warmest, puffy, faux fur lined hooded jacket I could find. I’m hourglass, although my shoulders are somewhat narrow, with a curvy silhouette. The jacket hits at the widest part of my hips and really makes me feel like the waist puffs up and makes me look bigger. Time to go shopping for a longer coat! I’ve always loved them but just thought I should avoid them because my hips are so much wider. Thank you!

What type of long coat for a pear shaped figure?
Harsha P (1 year ago)
Hey beautiful thank u so much. Could you do a video on chubby women that are Apple shape and guide on what could they wear, what could the hair style be like, what shoes to go for and remember the height is 5.3 “ :)
rapti mitra (1 year ago)
Thank you for letting me know so much about the kinds of coats or jackets to go with different body types. Again a small request..please share some inputs regarding what is a jacket or coat or blazer etc.it really helps me to be specific when i go for shopping. Honestly being specific with items as to what i need and not what i want while shopping has become a habit. Thank you
J James (1 year ago)
I'm a pear and don't agree with the photo of the biker jacket. Small shoulders look terrible in mandarin collars. An open collar or V shaped opening is the way to go. Also, longer and past the hips is better too. I've experimented a lot and that is what works best for me.
Evija3000 (1 year ago)
No wonder I love my coat. It fits all the criteria for my body type (short pear).
Imane Bou Saboun (1 year ago)
Hi dearest! I've been following you for a long while and you've inspired me so much with your tips. However, I recently bought a winter coat and did everything but what you suggested in you online shopping video, alas. I fell deeply in love with this maroon hooded ankle-length winter coat that of course looked fabulous on their very gangly model. Unfortunately they only had 1 size, which wasn't even stated. Nor were the model measurements stated. The good ol' lie "one size fits all" (yeah, as in "fits all those who've got the same measurements as the model"...). I am a petite pear so when I received it it was soooo wide and made me look even smaller. I actually fixed it with a belt on my waist. So it is deliberately oversize, but I still love it even if it does not look as A-shaped and flowy as on the model, on me. I really feel warm and cuddled in it and I just adore it. I love how it covers me and how it flutters when I walk. It's quite dramatic. It just probably does not look exactly the way it should. I'm afraid of taking it to get fixed though, because it is a rigid velvety cloth and it might get ruined in the process. Long story short: it's beautifully cozy and edgy, but it's terribly unflattering (for my height). 😅 What do you think should be done?

Merci pour cette vidéo, et toutes les précédentes et merci pour ton approche ouverte et bienveillante, qui donne envie de se sentir belle avec le corps qu'on a. Une question : comment choisir ses pulls, gilets ou vestes (à porter sous le manteau) ? Quelle longueur, largeur, quel type de col, qu'est-ce qui va avec une jupe, un pantalon, une robe ? As-tu un projet de vidéo sur le sujet ? Merci beaucoup

Thanks! Your video was very helpful. If you could give some guidance on how to pick (what to look for in) a good wool coat, that would be great.

Would you ever say theres a situation where fast fashion is a valid option? either it doesnt matter whether fast fashion brands are bought or where they might even be preferable? also, are there any fast fashion items/brands that you would say are "safe" to buy? eg I would never buy cheap jeans or cheap shoes as they just don't last and I need quality goods

Elena F. Polster (1 year ago)
Hello Justine! I've been watching your videos all day because I need to go shopping soon. I have a question regarding the coats in winter. I live in Russia now in Saint Petersburg, its much colder than Moscow, or Europe. So your idea of winter is actually fall clothes here. I recently moved from Costa Rica where its always hot so Im never sure what to buy. Iam an inverted triangle and also a plus size so...layering for the cold makes me look like a huge bear or a walking house. Can you recomend some ways to dress heavier coats for this side of the planet? I see in trend a lot of shapeless wide coats that clearly were designed for thin people and also the puffy plastic coats that I hate because they make me look fatter. Thank you!!
I don't care how the coat makes me look as long as it does its job. But thanks Justine love you!

I am 70 and unfortunately like most old woman I am still slim but straight up and down, blah! A belt makes me look like a sausage tied in the middle.
then you can choose whether you want to highlight your bust/shoulders or your hips, and play with volumes and shapes accordingly ;-)
IndoEiréannGirl (1 year ago)
Oh my God! Justine, when you said “Winter is coming”, I so expected you to say “Game of Thrones” after you said, “you know what that means?”!😆😄 I’m guessing you don’t watch that show though. If you do, you’ll get why I found that specific turn of phrase amusing. Totally off topic comment I know, but I couldn’t help myself, I had to say something when I heard you say that! Ok... I guess this total dork of a fan (me that is), will sign off now! Bye, bye.😊🙋🏻
I watch GoT and I love the costumes :-) But I didn't want to make the reference more obvious than it already was to people who watch it. Hahaha...

I'm surprised to hear I should wear short jackets. I'm pear shaped. I love biker jackets. I'll get one so.
everyonegodie (1 year ago)
I think I'm a pear shape and have always found coats like the first one you recommend for rectangles shapes to be most flattering. Things like motorcycle jackets just make me look blocky all over, but the longer jackets can accentuate my waist and flare over my hips. Plus they keep a bit of my legs warmer too.
Christine Larocque (1 year ago)
Love that you mention "Canadian Winters" and it depends on what part of Canada that you live. Cities Like Vancouver, Toronto and Halifax have a milder winter than say Quebec, New Brunswick, BC and Alberta. We are fortunate enough to have some great Canadian Winter coat designers that are specific to our winters and are also fashionable. Like Canada Goose, Quartz Co. and Arc-Teryx..all Canadian made and sourced down and Coyote/Raccoon Fur (for Canada Goose and Quartz) I have both a Quartz and a Canada Goose.

It would be super cool if you would consider posting pictures of coats that people are wearing for each body type and not just a sketch. What do you think? I am so happy I watched this video as I just got rid of a coat and now I'm happy b/c it was the wrong kind of coat for my body type. I learn so much by watching your channel. It's one of my favorites. :)
