As an apple you will have;
narrow shoulders,
Average boobs,
OK legs,
Tummy bigger then boobs,
Good legs.
Out of all the body-shape, types the apple tends to be the one with the least self-confidence.

Your body-shape is so easy to define with the right clothes. For you it's all about bringing focus to the top half, up and away from your tummy. Start by loving yourself by investing in a decent bra. A good bra can be pricey, but is definatley worth the investment. Check it's fit before each wear to check that the straps haven't stretched.

Look out for trousers with no bulky pockets or protruding zippers. Side fastening trousers are ideal. The waistband should be low and wide enough to sit flat on your tummy. These trousers should be slightly flared at the bottom so that they balance your tummy."

The key to your style is to use soft flowing fabrics that don't cling to your body
When wearing patterns Try to use muted and subtle ones, anything too bold will overpower you.
