Style according to your body shape
Identifying your body shape
By taking four body measurements: shoulders, bust, waist, and hips, the surest way to find this out is. The relationship between these numbers will show your frame’s form. Use the measures to identify your body shape.Most women identify with one of five, though there are several different body shapes out there: apple, peach, hourglass, inverted triangle, or rectangle. Knowing this will help you learn how to dress best for your type of body.
a. Apple Shaped
You have what is known as the apple shape if your shoulders and bust are wider than your comparatively small hips. Stylists can suggest tops that have some shaping around the waist and necklines that are more accessible, or clothing that shows off your legs.
b. Pear shaped
Your shoulders and busts are broader than your hips with this shape. You probably have lean arms and a waist that’s reasonably defined. Most definitely, your waist slopes out towards your hips. Clothing which shows off the waistline is often recommended by stylists.
C. Hourglass shaped
You have an hourglass shape if your hips and bust are almost equal in size and you have a well-defined waist that’s smaller than both. Your legs and upper body are likely to be considered proportionate. Your shoulders may be slightly squared, and you most likely have rounded buttocks. Historically, form-fitting or fitted clothing has been constructed with this type of body in mind.
d. Inverted triangle shaped
There are wider shoulders than the hips of women with an inverted triangle body, with little or no waist description. Their body follows the form of a “V” and shoulders may look straight, rounded, or athletic. Your aim is to create the illusion of a balanced hourglass body when selecting garments, where the shoulders and hips are proportioned and the bust and waist are defined.
e. Rectangle shaped
You have what’s called a “banana” or rectangular body type if your waist measurements are about the same as your hip or bust, and your shoulders and hips are about the same width. You are likely to be pointed towards off-the-shoulder tops, tube skirts, and belted waists by stylists.
f. Round or oval shaped
You have what’s generally called a round or oval body type if your bust is wider than the rest of your body, your hips are narrow, and your midsection is fuller.
Stylists typically point individuals with this type of body towards tops that flare at the top or have vertical information.
g. Diamond shaped
You have what is called a diamond body shape if you have wider hips than your shoulders, a slim bust, and a fuller waistline. With this shape, your upper legs can hold a little more weight. Also, you may have slender limbs. For this body type, flowy off-the-shoulder or boat-neck tops are typically recommended.
h. Athletic shaped
You could have an athletic body type if your body is muscular but not especially curvy. The proportions of your shoulder and your hip are almost the same. Your waist is smaller than your hips and shoulder, but it’s not too defined and looks up and down more explicitly. Stylists also refer to the types of halter, strapless, and racerback.
