What is your body type?

The first step to dressing for your body type is knowing what your body type is. There are four main body types: apple, pear, hourglass, and rectangle. Each body type has different characteristics. Once you know your body type, you can start to figure out what clothes will look best on you.

Apple- If you have an apple shaped body, you will most likely have a large bust and a thin waist. Your hips and thighs will be relatively small compared to the rest of your body.

Pear- If you have a pear shaped body, you will most likely have smaller breasts and wider hips than the average woman. Your waist will be noticeably thinner than your hips and thighs.

Hourglass- If you have an hourglass shaped body, you will most likely have proportionate measurements (breasts, waist, and hips). You may also have a curvier figure.

Rectangle- If you have a rectangle shaped body, your measurements will be relatively the same from top to bottom. You may have a slightly smaller bust and waist, but your hips and thighs will be about the same size.
