We're all different shapes and sizes... thanks goddess for that!
To try to make fitting easier for you, we've come up with a little visual guide to help you work out which garments will suit your body shape best.
We're making a start on this from August 2019.
There are five standard body shapes that we'll refer to.
Some of us are of course a lovely unique combo of all or some of these shapes!
A strawberry or inverted triangle body shape means your bust and /or shoulders are larger than your hips.
This can be an athletic type figure with broad shoulders and narrow hips. You may have a flattish bottom. Show off your lovely legs or add some volume to the bottom half of your body with a fit and flare dress.
A column body shape has similar measurements at the bust, waist and hips. The least curvy of the body shapes.
Legs and arms are typically slender with a small to medium bust. This body shape can benefit from highlighting the waist to create a curvaceous silhouette.
Clothes with drape and flow around the hemline can soften the straight lines.
PearA pear shaped body has a petite but well defined bust & narrow shoulders.
Your waist is shapely with a lovely curvy butt, thighs & full hips.
Dressing a pear shaped body is about bringing attention to the top half of your body & really accentuating your well defined waist.
An hourglass body shape has a similar size full bust and hips with a well defined waist.
A curvy feminine shape.
You most likely have a balanced proportional body shape.
Accentuate your waist and show off your curves!
An apple doesn't have much of a waist but can have slender limbs. Remember to show off your best assets!
A full figured Venus of Willendorf type. All the better for cuddles.
You may also have wide hips and full upper thighs.
