Body-ShapesI love this creative sketch of body shapes!

These are only a few of the body shapes out there, but they are the most common.

Knowing your body shape is important when it comes to choosing a wardrobe that looks best for your figure.

Some people just know how to dress themselves…must be nice. I struggle when it comes to buying clothes even though I know my body shape.

If you are fashionably challenged, this is a great place to start before you shop!


Hourglass

The most common and easy to work with.

-Neat Hourglass

-Full Hourglass


Rectangle

This shape is generally slender and easy to fit!

-Bust and Hip measurement is very close, if not the same.

-Hips are not predominant


Apple

You know you’re an apple if you’re more round above the hip.

-Large Bust

-Hips are always smaller than the bust.


Pear

Pears are smaller up top with more wide hips.

-Small Bust

-Hips are always wider than bust.
