The very feminine Bell has small shoulders, small boobs, small and short waist, big thighs and a large bottom.
For the Bell it is all about creating balance. The rules are about balance, but curves are fabulous either way so feel free to flaunt them.
A kick pleat skirt in a heavy fabric offers support, and the kick pleat in it self allows freedom to move.
A-line skirts are also a good fit for the Bell shape. If you're up for showing your extreme curves down below, a fitted/ elastic skirt in a structured thick material will work (for the Bells that feel in shape).
Go for darker colors on your bottom half, to create balance.
Side fastening, loose and flowing trousers.
Stay away from pockets on your pants, and tapered trousers. Pants can be a challenge for the Bell shape, but here is nothing wrong with a pair of flattering skinny jeans (firm elastic fabric), or leggings. Just make sure to consider how to wear them and what to pair it with.
Blazer or jackets that ends at the hip bone. The styles with a bulky and tight neckline will broaden the shoulders.
Funnel coats and similar styles.
Coats are great on the Bell, all year around and the styles with a bulky and tight neckline will broaden the shoulders.
The buttons are strategically placed high up on the chest, to draw attention to the top half. The A-line skirt flares at the most flattering part. Remember that coats that are too long will make your legs look short.
