Women come in all shapes and sizes, so how do you find clothes that are flattering your specific body type?
The key is knowing your body shape.
All body types have pros and cons. Knowing your body type is about dressing to look your best.
1.an apple body.
Slim limbs, specifically the arms, but wide shoulders are usually a strong characteristic of this body type.Weight is concentrated around your midsection and chest, giving the appearance of a bigger bust and protruding stomach, at times.If you naturally have a smaller bust, then weight can gather around your midriff.Though your top may be on the heavier side, your legs should be slimmer.
2. a “pear” type.
You’ll notice if this is your body quite quickly, as your lower body: hips, thighs, and sometimes your behind are more noticeable.Shoulders are narrower, sloping, and not as broad.
Usually described as the most “curvaceous” body. It’s a simple one to notice just by looking at your legs as they are sometimes noticeably wider, more muscular, and fuller compared to the rest of your body.
3.a straight/rectangular body type.
the waist is about the same as hips and bust. Your silhouette isn’t as curvy as the pear or apple bodies. Instead, you’ll look fairly straight up with flat shoulders.
Upon measuring, you’ll notice that your waist is one to eight inches smaller than your bust.Standing straight up, you should not notice any significant curves around the waist area.
4. an hourglass body.
The defining characteristic of hourglass figure is a significantly defined waist with more or less proportional top and bottom.Hourglass shapes tend to be “curvy” both on top and on the bottom.You can still have an hourglass body even when: slightly fleshy upper arms, wider looking shoulders, or a slightly fuller bottom.
5. Strawberry body.
If you own, my body takes the form of strawberriesYou have broad shoulders and the extra weight is concentrated in the upper part of your body.
Look at your genetics. Family genes play a large role in your body type. Look at other women in your family to see a common trend. If the women in your family tend to have a certain body type, chances are good you do as well. Remember, it is not just your mother’s family, but your father’s as well!
