What are the different types of skirts: mini, midi, maxi, pencil skirts, etc?
Which skirt fits which body type?
This video shows the 3 parameters when choosing a skirt: waist, hemline and fullness.
I refer to the main body types: pear, apple, inverted triangle, rectangle & hourglass. Petite and tall women are also mentioned, but if you are petite or tall, you are still (also) a body type.
Thumbs up if you liked this video!
Any question or tip? Comment below.

I like the A-line skirts most. In a length halfway the legs = midi. But sometimes also maxi style.
My favourite now is a black jeans-skirt in midi.
I wear skirts in public since 14 years. In all four seasons.
It is so comfortable and elegance. I like it more, than trousers / pants.
Very helpful in summer, if the weather is hot.
Skirts are the most comfortable fashion for men. So also for me.
No problems in germany, france, switzerland in public.
In a french supermarket I wear a blue jeans-maxi-skirt.
A little girl noticed me, and told it to her parents.
Her parents saw it, and told her, it is ok. No matter at all.
So it is ok for the girl too.
I love a mid-calf semi or full circle skirt. I think it's the easiest way to mask my thick, muscular calves, along with flesh-toned heels to elongate my legs, and I don't have to worry about bending over. Any tips for elongating legs in flats? My weight shifts a lot with pregnancy and heels are the safest at those times.
Hi Justine! Can you please make a video about winter clothes because I love sweaters but I want to learn how to choose esp when you're skinny. I would also love to learn about overalls as I want to try it out. I always wear jeans and jackets because I am super thin and I am afraid to try different styles.

I need a high rise (wide, inverted triangle). I am short but I don't feel comfortable in short skirts so I go for long ones, preferably hugging with a flare at the bottom (for example mermaid). I do have a long torso so it feels like my legs look longer that way and I feel good in them. Plus I can move, even run to the bus which I never do :D
New subscriber here and gradually making my way through your videos, so you may have already done this, but I always struggle with what to pair a skirt with, or how to wear it. Could this be a potential video topic?
I like this so much! As a Dutch reformed Christian girl, I only wear skirts and dresses. Have you done one on dresses as well? (I couldn't find it on your channel) As I can't wear jeans and any sort of trousers (which I feel like are the norm in Holland) I really like your elegant French side on fashion!
Je devine que tu es française du coup : je fais 1m60, une grosse poitrine, une taille fine et des grosses cuisses. J'aime beaucoup porter des jupes longues et haute, fendues. mais je n'ai aucune idée de ce qui m'irait bien aussi ! Anyway advices ?
For my school uniform, our skirts come down to about just below the knee on me. Being 5'2 this looks ridiculous, so i have to roll it up twice. Maybe it would be better if our shirts weren't so long too, but I'm definitely not the only one with this problem! I wish they made them different lengths keeping in mind the shorter people, because I couldn't go down a size due to the waist being too small.
Thanks, Justine. :) There are reasons hobble skirts went out of fashion!
Could you do a video on bridal accessories for different types of dresses? I'm getting married in a few months, and I'm trying to work out what I should do for a headpiece. Merci! <3
Ideas for future- Make overs, clothing, makeup and hair. The right handbag for your body and outfits. The right shoes to wear with body/legs, and outfits. The right jewelry to wear with outfits etc. Travel makeup bag and what is in your tote/handbag. Warm and cool coloring/skin tone, worse colors for each group. Hiding a tummy. How your nails effect your looks and easy way to do them at home.
Hey Justine and everyone! I’ve been avoiding skirts and dresses like the plague for years. Still after watching this video I don’t know what shape suits me. I am tall 1,78, quite busty with a round belly !! My legs are fine but the waist of the skirts really annoy me . They either accentuate my waistline in a bad way, or the empire waist makes me look even boobier !!! Do I just stick to trousers then ??
me trying to figure out where's where: *feel my torso* I think I'm missing some parts here...
me: so this is this and this is this, where is that then? *keeps looking but failed*
me after a minute of trying: oof, I have a short torso, don't I?
I still don't know what skirt would suit me, I feel like the video only covered pettits and pears. Maybe I was expecting a review for each style of skirt and what its effect would be on each and every body type. I think I'm a mid-height apple and I didn't hear any recommensations for that combo. Maybe just don't wear skirts, as I've been doing.
I love pencil skirts But from Denim to jersey they creep up me the minute i move - if i wear them below my waist and a bit loose they creep up as high as they can like a snake swallowing an egg, if snug to my natural waist they form folds or rolls and creep up like an accordion. Is this me? My shape? How I walk? Am i just not Right for Pencil? I find A line so drab and not flattering at all
Hi Justine, thanks a lot for all the useful advices! I have an okayish waistline but I'd like to hide my belly. I have big breasts and juicy thighs which rub when I walk 😓. I like showing my legs though. What kind of skirt would you advise me to go for? And if you have a tip for these rubbing thighs in summer, that's be great! Thank you 🤗💕
Thank you! I just adore your channel. I would love some day to put my creative side in practice. I have many ideas in clothing area but I totally lack painting skills. Do you have some advices for improving? Love you! :X
It's very difficult when you don't fit into an average. I am 5 feet tall, rectangle in shape, high waist. Every time I have ever tucked in a shirt I am told it looks ridiculous. What type of skirt would work best with a shirt not tucked in?

Bricolajul a ajuns in Romania in urma cu aproximativ 10 ani, insa in Statele Unite si in statele occidentale acest concept este mai vechi, si isi are originile la inceputul anilor ’50. Bricolajul se refera la capacitatea oamenilor de a crea sau repara diverse obiecte fara a apela la ajutor specializat.
Primul catalog de bricolaj pentru renovarea locuintei a aparut in 1968. Acesta a nascut conceptul de bricolaj care sta la baza lanturilor de magazine din zilele noastre. De la covoare si perdele, pana la mobilier si prefabricate, bricolajul se refera la tot ce inseamna renovarea unei locuinte in aceasta acceptiune.
Pe orlo.ro gasesti toate cataloagele de bricolaj, de la cei mai importanti comercianti. Catalog Dedeman, Catalog Praktiker, Catalog Baumax, Catalog Bricostore, Catalog Ambient si altii.
In Romania retelele de magazine pentru bricolaj sau extins rapid, cel mai important comerciant din acest segment este Dedeman, care a pornit din orasul Bacau si a ajuns sa detina magazine in cele mai importante orase din tara.
