They say real women come in all body shapes and sizes and I couldn’t agree more. Looking good has nothing to do with your size or shape. It has everything to do with the fit of your clothes. It’s how you choose to dress that matters.
How do you expect to achieve a jaw dropping look, if you don’t know your body shape? You need to first know your body type and then look for clothes and styles which flatter you best.
How to create a well balanced body
Regardless of your body shape, you need to create an illusion of a well balanced body. Forget about the latest fashion trends and focus on clothing items which suit you and make you feel confident and comfortable. Do not only focus on problem areas such as the tummy, bust and hip region. You must look at the big picture.
Also remember that your weight has very little to do with your body shape. When you add weight, those extra pounds will be distributed in the same proportions all through your body so that your body shape remains the same. That’s why the measurements may change but your body shape will not.
How to assess your body shape
To analyze your body shape, look at yourself in the mirror standing straight with your legs together and your arms away from your side. You may need to take measurements of your hip, bust and waist region in order to determine your body shape. You can also use a body shape calculator to determine your body type.
