This sketch shows three different tops with two different styles of pants.  What do you think?

FWIW I think 4 and 6 are the most flattering. I think with the big look at the top - puffy sleeves, slim fitting pants are a must. I also think if needed to hide a tummy, a cami the same colour as the pants with an open, elongated jacket wouild be more flattering than number 2 above. Just my 2cents worth.

3 & 6 are my favorite styles. The outfits seem balanced.

The Blue is the 4th person. The other tops are 20% larger. I have adjust the pants to show 3 pants hem circumferences. (The weight difference is 130 lbs to 156 lbs)

Ok - no tight legs for me! I think the middle is for regular wear and the wider legs are more formal. I never thought of "just a little wide."  I always see only the big palazzo pants being promoted in the pattern companies.

I don't know why I said 3 and 6 were my favorites in my last post. Definitely not 3. I ment to type 4. In this next set I can begin to see how small changes in hem width can balance an outfit and flatter ones figure.

I personally prefer 3 or 4. Definately do not like 2, this is how I would look in skinny legs. As much as how I sometimes feel a little unfashionable in by boot cut jeans the skinny leg is just not a flattering look on me, however I will wear leggings with a longer tunic top - once again its all about proportion and individual style.

The shorter blouse looks better with all of them. Longer looking legs too. 1/3 top 2/3 bottom ratios. Better than 1:1.

In pictures I like the shorter tops but when wearing them I feel more comfortable in the longer tops. Any ideas why?

It is the Golden Ratio: I can't quote the math, but when observing women, especially we who are heavy set, the shorter tops look better. It is the total height of a person. Google GOLDEN RATIO.

I'M WITH YOU. For me, it's because I feel like I'm covering the fat parts.

This is more like my figure. To me the greeen figures are more curvy looking. I think the narrow pants hem width is causing this illusion. The longer green top looks more eye pleasing to me/ more balanced.

 What about a older woman, short (5 ft) very pear shaped, overweight with a big stomach, ....

 I could never wear a short top.

Take a look at the before after shots of women after applying the golden ratio (aka divine proportions). http://thefashioncode.com/before-and-afters

I wonder if a short full figured woman could wear a hip length blouse and a shorter vest over it to bring the eye up. Layers are quiet popular now.

Will play with some pictures to see where we can go with these gals.

I already had this ready to go, so posting now and this weekend can see what I can to with layers or hem shapes.

Do you think the Curved V neckline changes the top/pants balance.

I think the v neckline suits the less defined waistline body better but peraps the straight v insteadof the curved. The curved V seems tp widen the body in appearence but the straight v seems like it would add length but not width. Am I in the minority with the thicker less defined waistline

the straight v seems to look better with the smaller thick figure with narrow pant leg/ dark blue, but the curved v seems to look better with the wider pant legs. Thanks Karen for the help. I looked at the Golden ratio thing and it is too much for me to ponder right now. I think these sort of exercises are easier for me to wrap my mind around.

I can't tell. The straight v neck looks off center and I can't take my eyes off of it.
