Tips On The Right Way To Dress For Your Body Shape by HotsButs(f): 8:29pm On Jan 02, 2018
The female body shape falls under five main groups. Your shape of body has nothing to do with the size of your body, per se.

Body shape classification is more concerned with the ratio of certain parts of your body to other parts.
Bear in mind that this body shape groups are not cast in stone. You may find that your shape falls into more than one group.
Moving on, here are the five main body shape groups

Hourglass
Pear
Straight
Apple
Wedge

Hourglass or Figure-Eight: This is said to be the balanced body shape.

You're an hourglass if:

Your waist is 8 to 10 inches narrower than your bust and hips
Your shoulders and hips are about the same width
You have a small waist

Examples of hourglass body shapes


To showcase your balanced hourglass-shaped figure,
Wear slim belts around your waist
Wear skirts and dresses that fall just below the knee or knee-length.

In the next post, I'll be talking about the Pear Bodyshape.

Pear or Triangle

You're a pear if:

You have a slim upper body with a smallish bust
You have a well-defined, narrow waist
Your hips are wider than your waist and shoulders. They are, in fact, the widest part of your body

Examples of pear body shapes


To make your pear-shaped figure look balanced,

Hemlines of your skirts and dresses should fall on or just below your knee
Tops and jackets should end at the top of your hips

In the next post, I'll be talking about the Straight Bodyshape.

Weight Gain and Your Body Shape Part 1

Hourglass or Figure-Eight:
You tend to gain weight all over your body, but fortunately, you also tend to have a high metabolic rate, that is, your body burns up the foods you eat faster.

Pear or Triangle or A:
You gain weight more easily around your hips, bottom and thighs. Luckily, though, you tend to have a high metabolic rate. That means that your body quickly burns up the foods you eat.

Apple or Round or Spoon:
You tend to gain weight around your middle. You have a slow metabolic rate and because of that, you gain weight easily but find it difficult to lose it.
