Your waist may not be that well-defined but your bust and hips draw the most attention. Wear A-line dresses, long skirts,v-necks, ruffled shirts etc. to keep your bust and hips enhanced while keeping your legs in focus through low-waist or medium height jeans, shorts, and pair it with sneakers or high heels based on the occasion. In this body shape you can draw most attention to your hips and chest.
