Recently I introduced you on Instagram to #SameSizeDifferentShape… an idea Dianne (@TheHairdresserMama) and I had as we often share clothes but they look SO different on us. We’re both a size AU10-12 depending on cut/fabric but Dianne is a pear shape while I am an hourglass.
We’ve done a round up of some of our current favourite pieces, to show you how they look and how we would style them!
Betty Lane | Shine On Dress
This was an easy dress for both of us to style and wear on our shapes, the shirred waist brought us in at the smallest point of our bodies while the floaty sleeves balanced out my bust and the ruffle hem was flattering for Dianne’s hips. Having a small consistent print is also a great way to disguise any problem areas!

Betty Lane | Capri Dress
I am a firm believer that every girl needs a Capri dress or two in her Summer wardrobe! So light, soft and floaty it’s the perfect throw on dress for those warm days! This is last year’s dress so I have the size L, this year’s cut has more room in the bust, longer sleeves and longer in length so I would stay a M in this year’s cut.

Orange Sherbet | Ainsley Dress
Strappy tops and dresses aren’t usually something I wear without a jacket (hence the denim jacket for me) as I find the lack of coverage makes my top half appear larger, however they really suit Dianne as she has slim shoulders and décolletage. The adjustable straps and cross over bust of this dress is extremely flattering though, and the ruffles once again flatter Dianne’s hips and even out my addition of the jacket.

Orange Sherbet | Billie Wrap Dress
The beauty of a wrap dress is that it can be tied to suit any bust and waist shape! With the gorgeous print, ruffle hem and statement sleeve the Billi Wrap Dress needs no additional styling, Dianne is wearing hers more casually with slides while I dressed mine up with heels.

Kmart | Tee & Culottes
Culottes and cropped tees are not something either of us usually wear, but we really wanted to show current trends on both our shapes, and were both pleasantly surprised! Both pieces were really flattering on both our shapes, the longer length of the sleeve balanced out Dianne making her appear more hourglass while the knot detail at the front drew my waist in which balancing out the wider leg on me.
Dianne & I are both wearing Kmart Pull On Linen Blend Cullotes [Size 12] & Short Sleeve Twist Front Tee [Size 14 for extra length], Dianne is wearing Spendless Shoes Slides and I’m wearing Ria Menorca Australia Pablo Wedges.
I hope this has been helpful showcasing the same style on different shapes, if there’s particular pieces you’d like us to try let us know!
