Forms and textures: strict geometry, abstract patterns, quilted leather, gloss, varnish, etc.
The O-line has a slightly defined waist. Fat deposition is concentrated in the abdomen, legs are slender. In this case, you need to shift the focus from the problem area.

The sizes of bags are medium and large, soft shoppers or those that hold their shape.
