The Beautiful Body

The Beautiful Body

Society has made it beyond hard for women these days. Between the magazines, photos, videos, movies etc; it's hard to feel comfortable in your own skin. There's a "persona" that we as women are supposed to fill, and if we don't, you don't know where you fit in. But ladies, let me tell you, society is WRONG!! Own your body, because confident in who you are. And if you want to make changes, do it for yourself and no one else! 

So let's talk about the different types of beautiful female bodies

- The Rectangle:  If your waist measurements are about the same as your hip or bust, and your shoulders and hips are about the same width, you have what’s called a “banana” or rectangle body type.

Stylists will probably point you toward off-the-shoulder tops, tube dresses, and belted waists. 

- The Triangle or Pear: your shoulders and bust are narrower than your hips. You probably have slim arms and a fairly defined waist. Your waist most likely slopes out to your hips.

Stylists often recommend clothing that shows off the waistline.

- The Hourglass: If your hips and bust are nearly equal in size and you have a well-defined waist that’s narrower than both, you have an hourglass shape. Your legs and upper body are probably considered proportionate. Your shoulders may be slightly rounded, and you most likely have a rounded butt. 

Form-fitting or tailored clothing have traditionally been designed with this body type in mind.

- The Inverted Triangle or Apple:  If your shoulders and bust are larger than your relatively narrow hips, you have what’s known as an inverted triangle or “apple” shape.

Stylists may recommend tops that have some shaping around the waist and more open necklines, or clothing that shows off your legs.

These are the four most commonly discussed body types. Flaunt what you've got, work with what you've got and be YOU!
