Kathie Lee & Hoda: Wardrobe To Flatter Your Figure
Have you ever found something cute you want to wear but you felt too self conscious to wear the outfit in public? Style expert Lindsay Albanese said there are a number of ways you can spice up your wardrobe and wear some really flattering outfits no matter your body type. She brought five women with different body types on the set to show how it can be done.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Full-Figured Women Wear Larger Prints
Michelle is a woman who has some extra love in the trunk so Albanese said they tried to flatter the behind with a larger print. She said not to be scared of print dresses when you have a big behind. Just buy larger print clothing. Albanese then paired the dress with a blue denim shirt.

Kathie Lee & Hoda: Full Middle Area Should Wear Peplum Dresses
Olivia has a little more love in the tummy than she would like but Albanese said it is easy to hide the tummy with a peplum. The peplum will create a waist for her which conceals the extra weight and makes the hips look flattering. Albanese paired the all purple peplum with some pastel-colored accessories for spring.

Kathie Lee & Hoda: How To Flatter a Large Chest
Jolene is bustier than she would like to be because she thinks it makes her seem larger than she really is. Albanese said the best solution for her is to stay away from strapless dresses and balance out the proportions of the body with a belt around the waist.

Kathie Lee & Hoda: Hiding Broad Shoulders
Zak said she has broad shoulders and she is tall but she is particular about her shoulders. Albanese said to balance out the proportions again but this time balance it out by showing some leg which diverts the eyes away from the shoulders and away from the height.

Chelsea has a pear shape and she is a size bigger on her bottom half than on her top. Albanese said she flattered her pear shape by finding her a nice fitting dress that is tighter on the top and has more flow on the bottom.
