12 Realistic Female Body Types by yorex2011: 10:49am On Sep 10, 2013
illustrated are 12 very realistic body types for females....they were illustrated by TV style gurus Trinny Woodall and Susannah Constantine. In their brilliant book, The Body Shape Bible, they have identified 12 body shapes - not just the classic Pear, Apple and Hourglass - which they say are the real key to looking great. scroll down to find where u fall into'

1. THE HOURGLASS: As an hourglass you will have -
Big breasts, (same size as hips)
Small waist,
Short waist,
Average/Long legs.
Big Hips, (same size as breasts)
Generous thighs,
Average/Broad shoulders.
What really defines an hourglass is her tiny waist

KEY SHAPES:the cornerstones of an hourglass wardrobe are v-neck fitted cardigans and pencil skirts. choose shoes with rounded or peeptoes
