Shopping with girlfriends is the best. They can dish about that Bachelorette episode you missed and hold your place in the dressing room line while you second-guess a gorgeous silk number you saw out of the corner of your eye--all while delivering an honest opinion about what looks great (and, fine, not so great) on you. So consider us your BFF the next time you’re on the hunt for a new blouse, and go for one of these six styles that’s fit to flatter.

BROAD SHOULDERS

OK, we?ll admit it: We?re suuuper jealous of your athletic build. (And we sympathize with how frustrating it can be to hear your tiny friends complain about their bra straps always falling down.) An understated peplum silhouette will add balance and volume to the bottom half of your torso. Then, pair with denim flares for a ?70s vibe that?s totally in this season.

LONG TORSO

It’s, like, the oldest trick in the book, but horizontal stripes really do give the illusion of width, acting as a necessary contrast to your elongated waist. Rock it with an A-line skirt or high-waisted trousers to minimize your torso even more and add length to your legs.

Get the look: Forever 21 ($16); Kate Spade ($68); Acne Studios ($150)

PETITE

Calling all small girls: This summer, opt for a V-neck blouse in a breezy, lightweight fabric. The silhouette will stretch out your frame and make you appear taller by drawing the eye up to your collarbone and away from your midsection.

FULL FIGURED

As simple as it may sound, a clean white tee can actually make the biggest impact. Soft fabrics like slub knit will hug your curves in all the right places and, when paired with your trusty white jeans, will perfectly pull off that trendy monochromatic look you've been dying to try out.

Get the look: Target ($9); Lane Bryant ($13); Charlotte Russe Plus ($18)

BIG BUST

In the heat, you likely want to shy away from form-fitting styles. But that’s not always the best option for curvy gals like you. Instead, go for a peasant blouse with an elastic seam at the waist. The hourglass-defining shape highlights your womanly curves rather than creating a tent-like situation. 

Get the look: H&M ($15); White House Black Market ($60); Bishop + Young ($110)

SMALL BUST

Accentuate your upper torso with a shoulder-baring top that you?ve been eyeing everywhere this summer. An off-the-shoulder number draws the eye up and out and emphasizes your slender frame, while the elastic above your bust creates more dimension below.

Get the look: Zara ($50); Bailey 44 ($148); Milly ($295)
